Some great things to learn about foods!

Some of the cooking terms I have learned:

Degrease=To remove fat from the surface of stews, soups, or stock. Usually cooled in the refrigerator so that fat hardens and is easily removed.

Marinate=To flavor and moisturize pieces of meat, poultry, seafood or vegetable by soaking them in or brushing them with a liquid mixture of seasonings known as a marinade. Dry marinade mixtures composed of salt, pepper, herbs or spices may also be rubbed into meat, poultry or seafood. My mother’s famous dish was marinated chicken and broccoli. I will never forget this term because now I can carry on the family dish in my future household.

Al Dante=Italian term used to describe pasta that is cooked until it offers a slight resistance to the bite. ***I learned this term specifically from my Grandma GG when I was taught to cook my Italian pasta dish.

THE COMPACTED DEFINITION…

We specializes in rustic-style pizzas, calzones and "pastazones," which are calzones stuffed with pasta. We also serve "pizzinis" -- house-made flatbread sandwiches that are "stacked and packed" with fillings like meatballs and barbecued chicken. Our pasta specialties include chicken Alfredo, pasta pomodora, mac & cheese, ravioli and lasagna. Finish it all off with cheesecake, brownies or tiramisu for dessert
