    Did ya ever wonder WHAT Indian Pudding is? Here is the answer!

    ~Indian pudding might not be pretty, but few New England desserts can rival its claim to fame as the most comprehensive of our regional sweet dishes. It evolved out of an initial British culinary tradition, which was then enhanced by Native American influenced necessity, and finally, flavored with the fruits of New England commerce.
    Confused? Here's how the pieces fit together:
    Early colonists brought with them to America a fondness for British "hasty pudding" —a dish made by boiling wheat flour in water or milk until it thickened into porridge.
    Since wheat flour was scarce in the new world, hasty-pudding-deprived settlers adapted by using native corn meal, dubbed "Indian flour," and flavoring the resulting mush to be either sweet (with maple syrup or molasses) or savory (with drippings or salted meat).
    In time, the dish evolved into one that was resoundingly sweet, with lots of molasses and additional ingredients like butter, cinnamon, ginger, eggs, and sometimes even raisins or nuts. Because New England was a stop in the "Triangle Trade" route of the 18th century, New Englanders found themselves with an abundance of molasses on their hands. Never a wasteful group, they used it to sweeten everything from Anadama Bread to Baked Beans.
    Indian pudding began officially appearing in American cook books in the late 1700's. Early methods called for the dish to be cooked in a "slow" oven, meaning at a low temperature, for a long period of time. The pudding dish was placed in a large, shallow pan, into which a shallow amount of water was added. The water insulated the dish so it would cook very gently during its long cook time.

    Hope that answers your questions about Indian pudding! You may check out the recipes for this classic New England dessert HERE!

    November 18: National Vichyssoise Day

    Did ya ever wonder what vichyssoise is? The answer you've been looking for is here! (sensing a theme? icon_wink.gif )

    **Vichyssoise ( /ˌvɪʃiˈswɑːz/ US dict: vish·ē·swäz′) is a thick soup made of puréed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock. It is traditionally served cold, but can also be eaten hot.

    The origins of vichyssoise are a subject of debate among culinary historians; Julia Child called it "an American invention",whereas others observe that "the origin of the soup is questionable in whether it's genuinely French or an American creation".
    Louis Diat, a chef at the Ritz-Carlton in New York City, is most often credited with its (re)invention. In 1950, Diat told New Yorker magazine:
    In the summer of 1917, when I had been at the Ritz seven years, I reflected upon the potato and leek soup of my childhood which my mother and grandmother used to make. I recalled how during the summer my older brother and I used to cool it off by pouring in cold milk and how delicious it was. I resolved to make something of the sort for the patrons of the Ritz.
    The same article explains that the soup was first titled crème vichyssoise glacée - then, after the restaurant's menu changed from French to English in 1930, cream vichyssoise glacée. Diat named it after Vichy, a town not far from his home town of Montmarault, France.
    Earlier, French chef Jules Gouffé created a recipe for a hot potato and leek soup, publishing a version in Royal Cookery (1869).
    And these are all the recipes for it on food. com vichyssoise recipes
