street Food

 

Street food is ready-to-eat food or drink sold by a hawker, or vendor, in a street or other public place, such as at a market or fair. It is often sold from a portable food booth,food cart, or food truck and meant for immediate consumption. Some street foods are regional, but many have spread beyond their region of origin. Most street foods are classed as both finger food and fast food, and are cheaper on average than restaurant meals. According to a 2007 study from the Food and Agriculture Organization, 2.5 billion people eat street food every day.

Street food of Thailand

Street food in Thailand brings together various offerings of ready-to-eat meals, snacks, fruits and drinks sold by hawkers or vendors at food stalls or food carts on the street side in Thailand. Sampling Thai street food is a popular itinerary for visitors, as it offers a glance of Thai cooking tradition.[1] Bangkok is often mentioned as one of the best place for street food. In 2012, VirtualTourist named Bangkok as the number one spot for street food — the city is notable for both its variety of offerings and the abundance of street hawkers.

Characteristics

There is scarcely a Thai dish that is not sold by a street vendor or at a market somewhere in Thailand. Some specialize in only one or two dishes, others offer a complete menu that rival that of restaurants. Some sell only pre-cooked foods, others make food to order. The foods that are made to order, tend to be dishes that can be quickly prepared: quick stir fries with rice, such as kaphrao mu (spicy basil-fried minced pork)[7] or phat khana (stir fried gailan), and quick curries such as pladuk phat phet (catfish fried with red curry paste). The dishes sold at wet markets in Thailand tend to be offered pre-cooked. Many people go there, and also to street vendors, to buy food for at work, or to take back home. It is a common sight to see Thais carrying whole communal meals consisting of several dishes, cooked rice, sweets, and fruit, all neatly packaged in plastic bags and foam food containers, to be shared with colleagues at work or at home with friends and family. Due to the fact that many dishes are similar to those that people would cook at home, it is a good place to find regional, and seasonal, foods. Food markets in Thailand, large open air halls with permanent stalls, tend to operate as a collection of street stalls, each vendor with their own set of tables and providing (limited) service, although some resemble the regular food courts at shopping malls and large supermarkets, with service counters and the communal use of tables. Food courts and food markets offer many of the same foods as street stalls, both pre-cooked as well as made to order. Night food markets, in the form of a collection of street stalls and mobile vendors, spring up in parking lots, along busy streets, and at temple fairs and local festivals in the evenings, when the temperatures are more agreeable and people have finished work.

History

Traditionally, Thai foods are prepared daily by housewives in every Thai household. Yet, selling food is a common economic activity in old Siam, as various ingredients, fruits and traditional delicacies was offered on boats in canals as “floating market” as early as the Ayutthaya Period (1350-1767). Floating market’s food or canal’s food has been sold from boats on Thailand’s rivers and canals for over two centuries. However, since the early 20th century King Rama V’s modernizations have caused a shift towards land-based stalls. Nevertheless, street food did not become popular among native Thai people until the early 1960s, when the rapid urban population growth stimulated the street food culture,[8] and by the 1970s it had “displaced home-cooking.”[9] In Bangkok parlance, a housewife who feeds her family from a street food vendor is known as a “plastic-bag housewife”, which originated from streets vendors packaging the food in plastic bags. The current proliferation of Thailand’s lively street food culture was contributed from both internal and external factors; Thai people way of life that involved a lot of agricultural and food production activities, their rich culinary tradition, rapid urbanization in recent decades that opened opportunities in foodservice sectors especially in urban areas, as well as the foreign visitors’ rising demand of local food prompted by the advent of the country’s tourism industry.

And so I will show you some part of urban street food in Thailand with my 70 bath to fill my stomach full.

Top 10 Reasons Why Artists Fail With Social Media

I meet  with many artists  who have tried to create a presence and a following with social media. After some time, they did not get the results that they thought that they would receive and then they become discouraged. As with most things in life, it takes a consistent effort in order to achieve any meaningful results. Overall, to me the main reasons why artists fail with social media is that they are not providing a value to their connections with any helpful, interesting and relevant content in their comments and posts.

2a5e4f655d90c8992d9cc509dfe42322

There is a reason why it is called “social” media and as artist participants we need to be active, engaged and consistently provide some kind of value, with associated information which is related to our followers’ art interests. If this accomplished consistently well with the artist’s followers, they then will not only keep their present followers, but will also eventually attract more high quality followers. (In this article the reader may substitute the term “follower(s)” with circles, connections, friends, followers and networks).

The following are my top 10 reasons why most artists are “unfriended”, “unfollowed”, “dropped” and eventually fail with social media:

1. As a potential follower I will want to know who you are, but your profile is not filled out completely or your profile information is blocked. If I have to guess or search to find out what these potential followers do or if they are related to my interests, I simply will not make that effort to “discover” who these people are, as I am too busy and do not have the time to do this.

In this type of situation, I will also subliminally say to myself that “this individual cannot be that important or interesting” or “what are they hiding?” Therefore, why should I bother with them? It is like getting a poorly written resume from someone with time gaps between jobs! Sell yourself to me with a complete profile, that is accessible for me to review and that allows me to decide to follow you or not.

2. As a follower if you are posting and tweeting about subjects that are unrelated to our mutual interests, then eventually you will be dropped as your disparate content is cluttering up my stream or wall. I only want to see helpful, interesting and related content from my followers.

3. As a follower you may be in my group or network and have access to my profile but you are not following me, so why should I follow you? Twitter made this clear as to the amount of followers one could accumulate, based on the amount of followers one had. Therefore, if you are not following me, why should I follow you? Your interactions and posts (both generated and received) should be about “our” art business and the information should be mutually beneficial and shared between us.

4. As a follower if you are negative, combative and rude in your interactions and posts you will be dropped quickly as one of my followers. The reasons being are as follow; 1. There is enough negativity dispensed through the media, I do not need more. 2. Why would I want to be “friends” with you, either online or off, if this is the way you conduct yourself? 3. Your negativity and rudeness does nothing to contribute to my being, business or my day. I do not need to be associated with you!

5. As a follower my comments, emails, posts and tweets are not being acknowledged by you. As a follower, you act as if I am not here or that I am unimportant to you. I try to make an effort to recognize your contributions, therefore, why shouldn’t you with mine? Remember, “Turnabout is fair play”. Why should I deal with someone who will not reciprocate with me? If this is the case, you are done as a connection and no longer a follower in my network.

1*mAm-bQp27PI8AGbCj7ORew

6. As a follower you really are a Spammer in disguise. All you try to do in your posts is try to sell or advertise what you want me to buy from you. How will this enrich, improve or enhance my business and personal life? If I were to go to a networking event or a cocktail party, had just met you and you began right away to sell me your product or service, I would be offended, turned off by you and I think of you as very rude individual! The same holds true online as well. I need to get to know you, how you think and how you act before I would ever consider buying from you. Who are you?

One other thing, as a follower I would hope that that you would want to get to know me and my business before you tried to sell me. All great salesmen try to discover as much as possible about the person or their business before they try to sell them anything and as a follower and a connection you should too. A great salesmen is there to help the client solve a problem and to improve their business. Followers should strive to do this too.

7. As a follower you dominate the stream or my wall with a string of multiple posts to draw attention to yourself, as well as to try to sell me something. This is rude…stop it, I know you are there! This is the equivalent of being in a group of people and not letting anyone else speak or air their views too. You are basically saying to everyone “I am more important than you and I really do not care who you are and what you do. Again, if this is the case, why would I want to deal with you in real life? Connections like this are dropped by me every day, as you are in my way and impeding me from developing real connections and real relationships.

8. As a follower your comments and posts are really about nothing. As a connection, you are not educating me or informing me of something that I am interested in, within my chosen field. I am here because I want to learn more about the business of art. If you are not posting something that increases my knowledge of my chosen profession, I do not need to be connected with you.

bd832ab3e630054b73e6d290401c1504

9. As a follower please do not try to convert me to your world views, politics and religion! I am not on this social media platform to hear this or to be convinced by you as to how I should act, be or how I should think.

Remember the old saying that you should never discuss politics, religion or money at the dinner table? The same adage holds true in social media. Don’t do it, as you will offend and lose many people if you do. Keep your personal and business related social media accounts separate. It is now very easy to create separate accounts with Fan and Business pages.

10. As a follower, if I forward a post of yours to a group, repost or retweet one of your posts, “Like” your FB post, Google +1 and share your Linkedin posts, it is polite to somehow acknowledge my efforts on your behalf, but you should also do the same for me sometime as well. Remember: In social media and in life, turnabout is fair play and this type of gesture should be reciprocated by you too.

To me, the bottom line is that my time is extremely valuable. In social media, if you are wasting my time, not teaching me something new or alerting me to something of interest within the art field, then you are not a valuable or an interesting connection to me. And if this is the case, let us part ways, as I value how I expend my energy, my mind and my time.

If you see yourself in any of these social media behaviors, then with a little effort on your part, over time, you can improve and begin to retain and accumulate more followers, along with becoming a more influential and valued person/entity with social media circles.

Hipsters FOOD

HIPsters HIPpo

Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too “edgy” for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The “effortless cool” urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent’s trust funds.

DSC_2306

Hipsters shun mainstream societal conventions that apply to dating preferences and traditional “rules” of physical attraction. It is part of the hipster central dogma not to be influenced by mainsream advertising and media, which tends to only promote ethnocentric ideals of beauty. The concepts of androgyny and feminism have influenced hipster culture, where hipster men are often as thin as the women they date. The muscular and athletic all-American male ideal is not seen as attractive by confident and culturally-empowered hipster women who instead view them as symbols of male oppression, sexism, and misogyny. Likewise, culturally-vapid sorority-type girls with fake blond hair, overly tanned skin, and “Britney Spears tube-tops” are not seen as attractive by cultured hipster males who instead see them as symbols of female insecurity, low self-esteem, and lack of cultural intelligence and independent thinking. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster subculture.

How Hipster Food Trends Are

I’ve never really understood food trends. I mean, I understand them in function, but not in principle. How can food be hip? How is it that foods go in and out of trend? In fashion a designer can create a new aesthetic that catches on for a while, before it eventually becomes oversaturated and the crowd moves onto the Next Big Thing – I get that; but food is different. Kale, for example, is an oh-so-hip foodstuff that’s as much a mark of hipsterdom these days as exposed brickwork walls and bushy beards, yet kale has always existed – it has always been accessible to us – but why is it that it’s more hip now than it was 10 years ago?

slide_345531_3617021_free

Admittedly this question is half rhetorical: it’s trendy because trendy people eat it, because cosmopolitan 20 and 30-somethings with lots of Instagram followers like to paste aesthetically-pleasing shots of their hip meals, fashioned from fashionable, Monsanto-free ingredients, all over social media. Sometimes this is done for health reasons, sometimes not. But either way, it’s still absurd.

FAT AD DIET

                Hello guys, How was your meals today?  My previous 2 blogs was talking about how media shape our way of eating. Media could lead us to many many way as we can see both positive and negative. Last week I introduce you the way that trend make us fat this week I will introduce you how trend make us firm.

There many factors that influence your diet. We are going to focus on the impact social and cultural factors have on healthy eating. To fully understand the concept, let’s look at the basic nature of the human social environment. 

Dietary habits and choices develop early. An infant’s eating habits are shaped by their parents in accordance with their view of what constitutes a healthy baby. Those views are shaped by society and can indirectly affect the nutrition the baby receives. Parents who follow a vegan diet, for example, are more likely to introduce vegan food to their children. Some people perceive a heavy baby as more healthy and feed accordingly to achieve such an outcome. Food can be used as a reward for good behavior; sometimes food is used to interrupt bad behavior.

A-balanced-media-diet

Some research suggests that children pick up eating behaviors by observing the eating habits of others. Frankly, that sounds like the sort of common sense that didn’t need to be clarified with research. After all, children learn nearly everything by copying the behavior of others. As such, it’s important for parents to be a good role model and be careful with the way they encourage or discourage certain types of food. Parents who adopt a “do as I say, not as I do” philosophy or prohibit certain types of food may find themselves having to deal with unexpected consequences when a food’s “forbidden” status makes it more desirable.

How Society Influences Diet

Culture and society are essential in shaping a person’s diet. Unfortunately, as a society where cheap is good and fast is better, we’ve welcomed super-sized, low-cost fast food that has paved the way for a massive increase in the rate of obesity. In fact, the increased consumption of high calorie, low-nutrition food has spawned an obesity epidemic.Food has become our new national pastime and most social events are centered around food. For example, more than 20 million hot dogs are sold at Major League Baseball games every season. Over 60% of people who go to games say they cannot live without hot dogs during the game.

swf-socialmediadiet-1024x682

Perhaps no “food” has a bigger impact on society than alcohol. It has the potential to be the one consumable item that can be a common thread in social gatherings. While consuming alcohol in moderation may not have a major impact on your health, alcohol abuse can be very detrimental to your health.

Friends and family exert an influence over your eat habits. When people are together, they tend to eat more, or less, than when they’re alone (depending how much others eat). The type of food eaten in social situations can be different from the food eaten when a person is alone. One study, in particular, found, “Meals eaten with others contained more carbohydrate, fat, protein, and total calories.” Makes sense. After all, an appetizer is fun to share.

Health trends on social media sites

These days, health information is readily accessible everywhere on the web. But before you take any advice, remember to consider the source of your information.

From clinical healthcare to public health campaigns, the health industry is increasingly turning to social media to support, promote and increase the spread of information and data in order to improve both personal and community health practices. Social media has provided a space to share preventative information and enabled the creation of support structures to track personal health and build patient-to-patient support networks post-diagnosis. It is both responding to the needs of the health industry and creating numerous challenges that health professionals are required to keep up with — ranging from privacy issues related to social media sharing practices, to the potential for misinformation related to public health spreading quickly if health agencies aren’t ready to dispel rumours.

media-diet_cropped

Social media has been responsible for relevant changes in both personal and community health, especially by making it easier for large numbers of people to rapidly share information. However, social media is a two-way street, and allows non-experts to share information just as rapidly as health agencies, if not more so. Managing misinformation during health crises is an important role that health agencies and other organizations have been forced to take on during events such as the 2014 Ebola crisis. Thus it is crucial that public health agencies and organizations are equipped before a crisis with strategies, educational material, messages and an appropriate staff or volunteer social media management plan to counter misinformation.

So we can see that media can be two-way road. I hope you guys have a nice meal. see yad3c2b7e3fbf2c6c58eed76e4d29ebdb9

Watch Ads Fat…

Junky food

Junk food is a pejorative term for cheap food containing high levels of calories from sugar or fat with little fiber, protein, vitamins or minerals.Junk food can also refer to high protein food like meat prepared with saturated fat – which some believe may be unhealthy, although some studies have shown no correlation between saturated fat and cardiovascular diseases. Many hamburger outlets, fried chicken outlets and the like supply food considered as junk food.

In present,fast food or junk food are very popular among teenager and kids because it is easy to eat and fast. Other reason why children addict is their advertisement.

Despite being labeled as “junk”, such foods usually do not pose any immediate health concerns and are generally safe when integrated into a well balanced diet.However, concerns about the negative health effects resulting from the consumption of a junk food , especially obesity, have resulted in public health awareness campaigns, and restrictions on advertising and sale in several countries.

Junk Food Affects Your Energy Levels

Junk food doesn’t contain the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. As a result, you may feel chronically fatigued and lack the energy you need to complete daily tasks. The high levels of sugar in junk food puts your metabolism under stress; when you eat refined sugar, your pancreas secretes high amounts of insulin to prevent a dangerous spike in blood sugar levels.

04-fast-food-advertising-teen-sl

Because fast food and junk food don’t contain adequate amounts of protein and good carbohydrates, your blood sugar levels will drop suddenly after eating, leaving you feeling grumpy, fatigued and craving sugar.

Junk Food Contributes to Poor Performance and Obesity

Junk food contains large amounts of fat, and as fat accumulates in your body, you’ll gain weight and could become obese. The more weight you gain, the more you’ll be at risk for serious chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. You could even have a heart attack.

The high levels of fat and sodium in junk food can cause high blood pressure or hypertension. Excessive dietary sodium can also have a negative effect on renal function, even leading to kidney disease.

In the short term, high levels of dietary fat lead to poor cognitive performance. You’ll feel tired and have trouble concentrating because your body might not be getting enough oxygen.

Junk Food Can Damage Your Liver and Your Heart

The high levels of fat and sodium in junk food and fast food can contribute to heart disease by raising blood cholesterol levels and contributing to arterial plaque build up. The high levels of trans fatty acids found in many junk foods and fast foods can lead to fatty liver deposits, which, over time, can cause liver dysfunction and disease.

Junk Food Can Lead to Diabetes

Over time, the high levels of sugar and simple carbohydrates in junk food can lead to type 2 diabetes. This occurs because eating too much sugar puts your metabolism under stress; when you eat a lot of refined white sugar and simple carbohydrates, your body has to pump up insulin production to prevent a dangerous spike in blood sugar levels.

Junk food that is targeted at children is a contentious issue. In “The Impact of Advertising on Childhood obesity”, the American Psychological Association reports: “Research has found strong associations between increases in advertising for non-nutritious foods and rates of childhood obesity.” In the UK, efforts to increasingly limit or eliminate advertising of foods high in sugar, salt or fat at any time when children may be viewing are ongoing.

Children are becoming overweight earlier in life, and obesity has been associated with the increased number of children and adolescents diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. Obese children are also more likely to become obese adults.

Experts are calling for governments to step in and impose restrictions on junk food to help curb childhood obesity.

Big food and drink companies are under fire from health advocates and parents for bombarding children with junk food advertising and sophisticated marketing techniques. It’s not just TV advertising influencing children anymore – they can be reached in many ways, through new and constantly evolving media platforms.

The food and beverage industry’s argument around junk foods is that parents should educate their kids about eating unhealthy food in moderation as part of a balanced diet and active lifestyle.

Food and drink companies now have many ways to reach children as the line between entertainment and advertising is increasingly blurred.

It’s not just the ads on TV. Children are targeted via:

•the internet

•social media

•viral marketing

•celebrity endorsements (particularly sports stars)

•product placement in TV shows and films

•competitions

•supermarket promotions and discounts

           Sometime we don’t realise that these ads are around us and we gut used to it. So what do you think about it ? Let’s share your idea through this 🙂

 

 

Food and Socialmedia

            Hi guy It has been awhile since my last update on my blog about all appreciate food from all around the world. I wish that I could taste them all but it is impossible LOL. I have many friends who like to share food on social media. Take photo and share before they eat which we call “Eat and tweet”

             The phenomenon known as the “eat and tweet” has flooded social

             media(Facebook,Snapcat,Twitter,Instagram)feeds with mouthwatering food photos. Why is everyone suddenly so keen to snap their snacks? The popularity of social media networks like Facebook and Twitter continues to skyrocket, and so does the concept that everything we do – everyone we meet, every party we attend, every movie we see – needs to be uploaded and shared with our Internet friends. Mobile technology has made it incredibly easy to document every moment of our lives, and the looming invasion of wearable technology will only make it easier.Increasingly, this sharing occurs by way of photos. In 2013, on average 1.6 million public photos were uploaded to Flickr every day. Uploading photos is the most popular activity on both Facebook and Google+, while Instagram – a social media platform wholly dedicated to image sharing – grew by 23% in 2013.

63588479630435883938934858_daily-mai

                    And, more and more, what we’re sharing is also what we’re eating. A 2013 survey found that 54 per cent of 18-24 years olds have taken a photo of their food while eating out, while 39 per cent have gone on to post it online. 90 new photos hashtagged #foodporn are uploaded to Instagram every minute. The idea of sharing food photos online has begun to dominate the world of participatory technology: apps like Burpple, FoodSpotting and SnapDish are specifically dedicated to the logging and sharing of food.

generation-y-demands-a-marketing-story_strict_xxl

Food blogs, food forums and food groups in online social networks are numerous. Some mostly function as means to share recipes while others for reviewing restaurants or dining experiences. Depending on the subject matter they vary according to both how food and eating is presented and portrayed. While blogs dedicated to exercise view food as fuel and vitamin packages, people following recipe blogs tend to emphasize the pleasure and indulgence associated with eating. Which food community one belongs to can therefore be seen as a strong marker for one’s identity.

foodporn-image3

Food porn is one such powerful metaphor. Food porn is typically used on platforms such as Facebook or Instagram, captioning delicious and visually appealing food items soon-to-be-ingested. The term “food porn” goes back to 1979, when Michael Jacobson, co-creator of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, wanted to contrast healthy and unhealthy foods —“Right Stuff” and “Food Porn” — in the organization’s newsletter. Jacobson later clarified that he “coined the term to connote a food that was so sensationally out of bounds of what a food should be that it deserved to be considered pornographic.

Recently we saw famous viral right now which we call “Salt bae”. It is video of the most sexiest chef in the world right and there are many of his parody.

Turkish chef Nusret Gökce knows a thing or two about his

meats. The restaurant owner already has quite the social media following because people just can’t get over the dramatic and often sensual way in which he beats, treats, and eats his meats. He recently broke the internet after posting a video demonstrating his apt knife skills . . . and the theatrical finesse with which he adds seasoning to his steak. And thus, #SaltBae, the internet’s new favorite sex icon, was born.

Noodle beep beep

         Hello guys, last night I just ate 3 pack of MAMA (Instant noodle). So it make me wonder what is the beginning of noodles. Let’s see whoaaaaa

History of Noodles

The origin of noodles has been disputed, but the evidence heavily favors its origin in China. Claims have been made that the noodle was of Chinese, Arabian and Mediterranean origin. Given the scarcity of physical evidence, it is unlikely that the question of origin can even be answered with certainty. A Nature article claimed the oldest evidence of noodle consumption was from 4,000 years ago in China.In 2005, a team of archaeologists working in the People’s Republic of China reported finding an earthenware bowl that contained foxtail millet and broomcorn millet noodles at the Lajia archaeological site, arguably hailing from the late neolithic period, but this claim was disputed by later research, which suggested that noodles simply cannot be produced from millet, which lacks gluten. The earliest written record of noodles is found in a book dated to the Eastern Han period (25–220). Noodles, often made from wheat dough, became a staple food for people of the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE). During the Tang Dynasty, the noodles were first cut into strips, and in the Yuan Dynasty, the making of dried noodles began.

Instant noodle rises

Instant noodles are a precooked and usually dried noodle block, sold with flavoring powder and/or seasoning oil. The flavoring is usually in a separate packet, although in the case of cup noodles the flavoring is often loose in the cup. Some instant noodle products are seal packed; these can be reheated or eaten straight from the packet. Dried noodle blocks are cooked or soaked in boiling water before eating.

Instant noodles were invented by Taiwanese-Japanese inventor Momofuku Ando in Japan. It was first marketed on 25 August 1958 by Ando’s company, Nissin, under the brand name Chikin Ramen. Ando developed the production method of flash frying noodles after they had been made, creating the “instant” noodle. This dried the noodles and gave them a longer shelf life, even exceeding that of frozen noodles. Each noodle block was pre-seasoned and sold for 35 yen. Initially, due to its price and novelty, Chikin Ramen was considered a luxury item, as Japanese grocery stores typically sold fresh noodles for one-sixth their price. Despite this, instant noodles eventually gained immense popularity, especially after being promoted by Mitsubishi Corporation.

In 1971, Nissin introduced Nissin Cup Noodles, instant noodles in a polystyrene cup, to which boiling water is added to cook the noodles. A further innovation added dried vegetables to the cup, creating a complete instant soup dish.

Bacalhau à brás

Bacalhau à Brás (Cod à la Brás) is made from shreds of salted cod (bacalhau), onions and thinly chopped (matchstick sized) fried potatoes in a bound of scrambled eggs. It is usually garnished with black olives and sprinkled with fresh parsley. The origin of the recipe is uncertain, but it is said to have originated in Bairro Alto, an old quarter of Lisbon. The noun “Brás” (or sometimes Braz) is supposedly the surname of its creator.

Paella (Arroz com mariscos)

Paella is a Valencian rice dish with ancient roots that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near the Albufera lagoon on the east coast of Spain adjacent to the city of Valencia. Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain’s national dish, but most Spaniards consider it to be a regional Valencian dish. Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.
