HOME COOKING.

Cooking is the art or practice of preparing food with the use of heat for consumption. Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world, reflecting unique environmental, economic, and cultural traditions. Cooks themselves also vary widely in skill and training. Cooking can also occur through chemical reactions without the presence of heat, most notably as in Ceviche, a traditional South American dish where fish is cooked with the acids in lemon or lime juice. Sushi also utilizes a similar chemical reaction between fish and the acidic content of rice glazed with vinegar.
Preparing food with heat or fire is an activity unique to humans, and some scientists believe the advent of cooking played an important role in human evolution. Most anthropologists believe that cooking fires first developed around 250,000 years ago. The development of agriculture, commerce and transportation between civilizations in different regions offered cooks many new ingredients. New inventions and technologies, such as pottery for holding and boiling water, expanded cooking techniques. Some modern cooks apply advanced scientific techniques to food preparation.

There is no clear archaeological evidence when food was first cooked. Cooking may have been invented as far back as 1.8 million to 2.3 million years ago. Other researchers believe that cooking was invented as late as 40,000 or 10,000 years ago. Evidence of fire is inconclusive, as wildfires started by lightning-strikes are still common in East Africa and other wild areas, and it is difficult to determine when fire was first used for cooking, as opposed to just being used for warmth or for keeping predators away.

 

Food has become a part of material culture, and cuisine is much more than a substance. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, food was a classic marker in Europe. However, in the nineteenth century, cuisine became a defining symbol of national identity. The discovery of the New World represented a major turning point in the history of food because of the movement of foods from and to Europe, such as potatoes, tomatoes, corn, yams, and beans. Food in America consisted of traditions that were adapted from England, but up until the end of this century, the presence of new ingredients along with the contact between diverse ethnic groups influenced experimentation. Industrialization was also a turning point that changed how food affected the nation.
So the rest is history, Let us enjoy the double pleasure of  cooking and eating at home ,despite of the
 exceedingly wicked advertising  to abandon the   glory of traditional HOME COOKING .

THE BRIEF SPACE OF YOUR ABSENCE.

     ‘  EL BREVE ESPACIO EN QUE NO ESTAS   ‘

(  The brief space of your absence  )

There are still traces of moisture,
her scents fills my loneliness,
in the bed draws its silhouette which promise
filling the brief space of her absence..
I still do not know if she will return
no one knows, what will be next day,
Break all my schemes, no misdeeds,  no grievances,
Neither asking  in return for what you give.
Usually violent and tender,
never speaks about eternal union,
but conveys like if would be the last day to love.
It does’nt share a meeting,
She prefers a song that compromises her thinking.
Still, I have not ask her -will you stay? ‘.
I greatly fear the response of ever may .
I rather share her, than empty my life ,
She is not perfect,
barely near what I always,,,,,,,
Merely idealize !!

IL BREVE SPAZIO DI VOSTRA ASSENZA.

Ci sono ancora tracce di umidità,
i suoi profumo e riempire la mia solitudine,
a letto trae la sua sagoma che promettono
riempire il breve spazio che è …
Io ancora non so se tornerà
nessuno sa, il giorno dopo che lo farà.
Rompere tutti i miei programmi, non confessare una sanzione,
Non ho chiesto niente in cambio di ciò che si dà.
Di solito violento e tenero,
non parlare di unione eterna,
è più come se avesse avuto solo un giorno per amarlo.
evitare una riunione,
più come la canzone che compromette il vostro pensiero.
Ancora non ha chiesto “resterai? ‘.
Temo la risposta di “mai”.
Il comune piuttosto svuotare la mia vita prima,
non è perfetto
più si avvicina a quello che ho appena sognato …

Pablo Milanes.
