The Culinary Alphabet…The Letter F…

Carol Cook!Culinary Alphabet F

Welcome once again to Carol Cook’s column and today in my culinary trawl we have the Letter F.

I am loving this series as I am discovering terms and names I didn’t know or didn’t think I knew so I hope you are too. You can find me once a month over @ Esme’s Salon

F for me was not as easy as some and not so many terms beginning with F although as I was writing I did think of some more it takes me a while sometimes…getting old…lol

Let’s kick off with the CULINARY ALPHABET…THIS WEEKS LETTER IS F

Falafel, a deep-fried ball, doughnut or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans or a combination of both. Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food, that most likely originated in Egypt. Usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as taboon; Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of an assortment of appetizers.

Fenugreek Now I use this spice in my Indian cooking so that was easy. But for centuries, fenugreek has been used by many for its health benefits as fenugreek is not only nutritious but can provide us with numerous health benefits.

Five-spice powder is also another spice familiar to me and one which I use in my kitchen. Five-spice powder is a spice mixture of five or more spices which is used predominantly in Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine and to a lesser degree in Asian and Arabic cookery. If you can’t buy 5 spice powder then it easy to make.
