Glossary & Index

Chapter 1:

Ranjana, Ami Ar Ashbo Na: is a song from the Bengali album Shunte ki Choa by Anjan Dutt released on September 23, 1994 - source: Wikipedia

Cappuccino Preparation: The method of preparing the cappuccino has been noted from the website - www.illy.com which also gives detailed videos for the preparation of expresso, cappuccino and mocha to name a few. The video also shows how to draw' the designs on the foam.


Chapter 2:

Let the pen glide...

This poem is by Platt Rogers Spencer, the originator of the Spencerian system of cursive handwriting, popular in the U.S. in the 19th century. It has been quoted by William E. Henning in An Elegant Hand: The Golden Age of American Penmanship and Calligraphy. (Oak Knoll Press, 2002)

Chapter 4

Sugar Glass:  (also called candy glass, edible glass, and breakaway glass) is a brittle transparent form of sugar used to simulate glass in movies, photographs and plays. It is much less likely to cause injuries than real glass, and it easily breaks convincingly, making it an excellent choice for stunts. Sugar glass is also used to make sugar sculptures. Because sugar glass is hygroscopic, it must be used soon after preparation, or it will soften and lose its brittle quality.

Sugar glass is made by dissolving sugar in water and heating it to at least the "hard crack" stage (approx. 150 C / 300 F) in the candy making process. Glucose or corn syrup is used to prevent the sugar from recrystallizing, by getting in the way of the sugar molecules forming crystals. Cream of tartar also helps by turning the sugar into glucose and fructose.

Sugar glass is rarely used for stunt work in current times, as it is extremely fragile, and has been replaced with certain synthetic resins such as Piccotex - Source: Wikipedia

 

There are indeed men's fragrances which include cinnamon and sandalwood, two examples being:

Viktor & Rolf Antidote: The first men's fragrance from Viktor & Rolf calls itself the "magical elixir that turns all that's negative into positive and evokes joy, wonder, love and success."  It's a big claim, but Antidote delivers.  The fragrance opens with a burst of mint leaves and Italian bergamot, then introduces spicy hints of black pepper and cinnamon, and finally yields to the warmth and sophistication of sandalwood, ebony and patchouli.

Costume Nationale's Homme: Costume National calls the wearer of Homme "seductive," "mysterious," and "definitely unique!"  The fragrance leads with a fresh mixture of grapefruit, cardamom, and bergamot, then deepens into a spicy blend of cinnamon, thyme, and cloves.  Homme ends on warm touches of sandalwood and labdanum, making it a cologne that is at once intriguing and inexplicable.

Anjan Dutt (Bengali:  'Ajan Datta') (19 January 1953) is an Indian film director, actor and singer- songwriter of the 1990s Bengali music scene defined by anyodharar gaan (alternative music). Anjan Dutt's style of music is different from the others in the sense that it has simple tunes, one that is reminiscent of western folk music. His lyrics are simple and more natural. Anjan's music is somewhat influenced by blues, bluegrass, folk and country music. He is the first Bengali artist to depend more on the saxophone. He is an admitted fan of Bob Dylan and his Bengali contemporary Kabir Suman, who had heralded a new era in Bengali music through his songs that were very different from the existing genres of Bengali music. These songs and lyrics, commonly referred to as Jeebonmukhi (literally meaning towards life), concerned itself with the tough reality of Bengali middle class social life, in and around Kolkata. Anjan started translating some English songs. In his efforts, he was supported and constantly inspired by his ideological precursor, Suman Chatterjee himself. Dutt later decided to delve into the music arena on his own. When HMV offered to publish his songs, he finally realised that he had to take it seriously.

Albums: Shunte Ki Chao (1994) (which includes the song Ranjana Ami Ar Ashbo Na), Purono Guitar (1995), Bhalobashi Tomay (1996), Keu Gaan Gaye (1997), Ma (1998), Chalo Bodlai (1998), Priyo Bandhu (1998), Hello Bangladesh (1999), Kolkata-16 (1999), Bandra Blues (2000), Asamoy (2000), Rawng Pencil (2001), Onek Din Por (2004), Ichchhe Korei Eksathe (2005), Abar Pothe Dekha (2007), Ami ar Godot (2007)and  Unoshaat (2014)

So rip the pictures - is from the song - Bittersweet Memories and is a power ballad by the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for My Valentine. It is the third single from the band's third studio album, Fever. The music video for "Bittersweet Memories" was released on 25 November 2010.

 

 

Pastry knife:

Long serrated knives are called a variety of things: bread knife, serrated carving knife, and serrated slicing knife. You can't sharpen a serrated knife on a stone or steel conventionally, but you can use some pull-through-sharpeners.

Serrated slicers are typically between 20cm (8") to 36cm (14") and are used for a variety of slicing and carving jobs. The advantage of a serrated knife is that it is perfect for going through tough exteriors so that could be tough bread, vegetable or fruit and meat (like if you got your timings slightly out on your roast) There are a few types of serrated slicers but the pastry knife is by far the most popular knife amongst Chef's. The beaming smile on their faces says it all when they pick it up and extol of its many, many virtues. Despite Chef's using it for all and sundry, it is designed for pastry work. The broad end of the blade acts like a spatula or palette knife which makes it very handy for spreading.

Chapter 9:

Marzipan: Marzipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal (fine almond paste), sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract. It is often made into sweets; common uses are chocolate-covered marzipan and small marzipan imitations of fruits and vegetables. It is also rolled into thin sheets and glazed for icing cakes, primarily birthday, wedding cakes and Christmas cakes. This use is particularly common in the UK, on large fruitcakes. Marzipan (or almond paste) may also be used as a cake ingredient, as in Stollen. In some countries, it is shaped into small figures of animals as a traditional treat for New Year's Day. Marzipan is also used in Tortell, and in some versions of king cake eaten during the Carnival season. Traditional Swedish princess cake is typically covered with a layer of marzipan that has been tinted pale green.

There is a very interesting history of marzipan on the website of Niederegger  (J. G. Niederegger GmbH & Co. KG ) is a producer of marzipan and sweets. It is based in Lbeck, Germany. Niederegger was founded in Lbeck on 1 March 1806 by Johann Georg Niederegger (1777 - 1856). The company is a family-owned limited private partnership.

I have reproduced it below for interested readers:

A History of Marzipan - www. Niederegger.com

My name is Johann Georg Niederegger. This is the story of marzipan. I want to tell it to anyone who wants to hear it. Others have already told the story of how marzipan, this delectable delicacy, originally came from the Orient. Our marzipan was invented far away, where almonds and sugar are grown. Rhazes, a Persian doctor who lived from 850 to 923, wrote a book in which he praised the curative qualities of almond and sugar paste. When the crusaders returned from the Orient, they brought with them a host of spices and Oriental secrets. In 13th century Venice, Naples and Sicily, spices and confectionery were generally traded  in tiny boxes. The enchanting word "Mataban" (box) gradually came to be used for the contents of the box:  Mazapane (Italian), Massepain (French.), Marzipan (German). Did you know that even back in the 13th century, the renowned philosopher and theologian Thomas Aquinas reflected upon the indulgence of eating Marzipan? In his doctrinal teaching, he reassures enquiring and anxious clerics: "Marzipan does not break the fast." In his stories, the great novelist Boccaccio clearly describes the correlation between passion and marzipan. In those days, marzipan was topped with gold leaf to crown the sweet temptation Great Hanseatic merchant boats brought spices and other prized ingredients to the North. Initially, however, only apothecaries were allowed to trade with sugar and spices. Not until confectionary became a trade in its own right were so-called canditors' allowed to produce marzipan. The first Europeans to indulge in marzipan were kings and rich people. It has been reported that Queen Elizabeth I of England, who lived from 1533 to 1603, was addicted to all things sweet.  The saying regal enjoyment' was coined. Later, at the French Sun King' Louis XIV's sumptuous feasts, huge tables laden with marzipan were the order of the day. Marzipan reproductions of all sorts of fruits, poultry and game were created - anything you desired could be made. In the first half of the 19th century, the general population was now able to sample the almond delicacy to their heart's content in coffee houses. Now that sugar could be extracted from sugar beet, the costly luxury became slightly more affordable. Marzipan was also particularly popular and prized in Lbeck. I would now like to tell you something about my life: as a young man, I left my home town of Ulm to become apprenticed to a confectioner, Maret, in Lbeck. In 1806 I was able to open up my own shop. I supplied my wares to kings and tsars. From then on, my reputation grew thanks to excellent quality. My recipe for marzipan - as many almonds as possible, as little sugar as necessary - is secret, and has been passed on from generation to generation since my death. That way, Niederegger Marzipan remains what it has always been: a delicious specialty made from the very best almonds. New York, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, a sweetmeat goes on tour ... Niederegger stands for "marzipan of world renown".

  

Epilogue

Just Deserts: meaning that which is deserved.' A reward for what has been done - good or bad.

Origin

Deserts, in the sense of 'things deserved' has been used in English since at least the 13th century. A citation in which it is linked with 'just' comes from 1599, in Warning Faire Women:

"Upon a pillory - that al the world may see, A just desert for such impiety."

With this phrase it isn't the origin that is interesting though, but the spelling. Most people point out that 'just deserts' is misspelled. They go to great lengths to explain why it should be 'just desserts'. They are wrong, but perhaps understandably so.

- Deserts' is now almost always used in reference to desolate and arid regions of land. Its use to mean 'that which is deserved' is now largely limited to this single phrase.

- Desserts' - the last or sweet course of a meal - is widely used and is pronounced the same way as the deserts in 'just deserts'.

So, when hearing the phrase with the pronunciation like 'desserts', people think it must be spelled that way too. The spelling might be more intuitive if we thought of the phrase as 'what you justly deserve'.

 

Bengali Style Cholar Dal is a delicious lentil dish cooked with Bengal gram or channa dal. This dish of dal is flavored with coconut, ghee and an assortment of whole spices (cumin seeds, dry red chilies, cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, green chilies and grated ginger). Bengali Style Cholar Dal tastes mildly spicy.

Panch Phoron (Bengali Five-Spice)

The distinct aroma of Bengali cuisine is mostly due to the blend of spices known as panch phoron, or perhaps some other variation on this name. Panch means "five" and phoron is "flavour" or "spice", hence the common translation Bengali Five-Spice.

Panch phoron is a colourful blend of flavourful seeds: the green of fennel seed, black mustard and nigella seeds, golden fenugreek and buff-coloured cumin seeds. Some variations may substitute anise for the fennel seeds or wild mustard for cumin, radhuni seed for mustard, and possibly black cumin for nigella. Generally the ingredients are added in equal proportions, though this can vary according to taste.

Panch phoron is usually fried in oil or ghee before adding anything else to the pot, flavouring the oil and releasing the aroma of the oils in the seeds and causing them to pop in the pan. Other ingredients are added at this point, the mixture adding sweetness and bringing to fore the flavours of vegetables, beef, fish or lentils

Music Bar: The Music Bar has been developed and tested for amateur and professional guitarists using STEEL and NYLON strung acoustic and classical guitars. Its purpose is to allow the student and musician to practice playing in relative silence. Normal acoustic guitars have a noise range of around 80 decibels; the Music Bar reduces this volume quite significantly. It has been found that a person playing in one room is barely audible in another room in the same house. This therefore gives the guitarist longer periods of practice without disturbing other members of the house AND gives them the opportunity to take on new pieces of music without feeling self-conscious.. It does not come into contact with the guitar and is applied quite literally in a second. The Music Bar has been found useful for use on full size, and size guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, and banjos as well. Resonance and tonal quality can be adjusted if required, although the Music Bar has been pre-set and should require no alteration.
