The insides of the vegetable become as hot as 82°C and the water condensed outside 91°C. <b>Braising is physically the most complex form of cooking. The food receives heat from three sources:</b> the hot steam in the pot, the simmering water on the bottom of the pot and the infrared rays emanating from the glowing hot metal. Water can be heated up to more than 100°C in a pressure cooker. The method was developed in 1806 to enable Napoleon’s army to sterilise food and make it last longer.

Tasting Victory

There's something to be said about sops you can really sink your teeth into. Making a right meal of her pre-election people pleasers, Jayalalitha serves up the Rs 1 idli thali (the curry acc­o­mpaniments come with). Curd rice at Rs 3? Carbo-loading. It'll keep the votebank fighting fit. The DMK's got a lot to chew on.

The magic of embers Grilling is the oldest method of preparing food: for hundreds of thousands of years humans have been using charcoal heated up to 1,400°C to warm meat by up to 60 to 70°C.

- Ryan Matthew, Nathan Myhrvold
Dec 05, 2012
Cooking the mild way: while steaming, tiny water droplets form an insulating film on the food being cooked, which retains the heat of the steam. The insides of the vegetable become as hot as 82°C and the water condensed outside 91°C.

- Ryan Matthew, Nathan Myhrvold
Dec 05, 2012
Braising is physically the most complex form of cooking. The food receives heat from three sources: the hot steam in the pot, the simmering water on the bottom of the pot and the infrared rays emanating from the glowing hot metal.

- Ryan Matthew, Nathan Myhrvold

Water can be heated up to more than 100°C in a pressure cooker. The method was developed in 1806 to enable Napoleon’s army to sterilise food and make it last longer.

WHAT
The veil on Barack Obama’s famed honey brown ale has finally been lifted, after thousands of Americans asked for the ‘secret’ recipe via a petition.
WHY
Everything is charmingly homemade about the “first ever White House beers”—the Honey Ale and Honey Porter—right from the president’s personal brewing kit down to the honey, a product of the White House beehive. A masterstroke in diplomacy, agree observers. Perhaps not potent enough to swing an entire election, but the beer fest could sure give teetotaller Mitt Romney a slight buzz in the head.
