Recipe Preparation

and was 85 years old when she taught me [Mabel Weller] (in Cornwall
1938) to make pasties. I like to think that she had been taught by
her mother. The ingredients are simple: pie crust, cubed round steak,
onions and potatoes, salt and pepper. Turnip or leeks can be used for
a change of flavour. All ingredients are raw. Roll out pie crust and
cut into rounds or ovals about the size of a butter plate. On one
half of the pie crust arrange, in this order, a few slices of potato,
a layer of onion, a pile of steak and the salt and pepper. Moisten
the edge of the crust around the filling, and fold the bare crust
over. Seal the edge very well or the onion juices will run out and
make the pasty stick to the baking dish. Cut two vents in the top.
Bake at 400 F for about an hour. Modern pasties seem to be made with
leftovers: ground up cooked meat and left over assorted vegetables
mixed together in a pastry which is joined in a thick roll at the
top. This was reported by recent visitors to the U.K.

Food Tips of the Week

Advice on losing weight

Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The argument against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is frequently overlooked, it is very hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Many scientific studies over recent years have proved that high consumption of animal fat can lead to higher chance of cancer, heart problems and other major health problems.
Flavonoid foods
(inlcudes garlic, spinach, adzuki bean & tea)

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' present in these food types are thought by nutritionalists to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Researchers researching the effects of flavonoids think they might also have numerous other healthy properties, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet capabilities.
The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet system.
