On the Great Indian Mango Trail

Mangoes exemplify a dwindling subcontinental culture of camaraderie and large-heartedness, best articulated by those who have spent their entire lives growing, grafting and gifting them.

With more than a thousand varieties, a succulent symphony of tastes—and perhaps a philosophy of the universe, too

In last year’s film “Victoria and Abdul,” we see Queen Victoria’s Indian manservant describing to her the delights of his homeland’s mangoes, “the Queen of Fruits.” Intrigued, the world’s most powerful person immediately requisitions some. The fruit arrives, an offering from a subject sub

懷念的香蕉湯 (劉克襄)

         ■■懷念的香蕉湯
近來香蕉產量暴增,導致價格下跌,閣揆建議水煮香蕉沾醬油,結果在新聞媒體引發熱議。有些人對食用的方法充滿困惑,我自己看到新聞倒是莞爾一笑。昨夜決定寫此小文,分享一些旅行經驗。
把青香蕉當成稻米、玉米等榖物,做為主要糧食,在熱帶許多部落早已行之千百年。前幾年,我在南亞一些傳統市場走逛,遇到有些賣香蕉的水果攤,也仍然堅持這樣的販售方式。我們若嚐試單純的水煮生食,或蒸熟,然後再剝皮食用。淡而無味的乾粉口感,應該會覺得不好吃。沾醬油或搭配其它醬料,諸如蒜蓉、花生泥之類,真的是較好的食用方式。
但還有一種,我在本島吃過,一直念念不忘。香蕉湯,不知品嚐過否?
此湯製作,一樣先處理生硬的青香蕉。切段,鹽洗。又或者更講究,檸檬水浸泡,避免香蕉氧化變黑。接下,香蕉當成粿料、板條之類的食材,倒入備好的滾燙湯汁,再依憑興致,加上韭菜、油蔥、枸杞或瘦肉等,滋味美妙,生津止飢的香蕉湯隨即大功告成。
豪華版的還可加排骨,添增其內容的澎湃。我原本以為,這是中部集集一帶,獨創的美食內容。不意,旗山也有此特色。那是有一回跟「台青蕉」樂團一起拍片,體驗到的在地美食。
可是,那天因忙著拍片,只喝了半碗,美味方上口,卻被迫匆匆上路,趕往它處。因為抱憾至今,日後看到旗山的地名,想到的此後都是香蕉湯了。

摩爾多瓦種植的霞多麗
霞多麗(亦譯莎當妮Chardonnay,法文發音為「莎導乃nāi」),屬歐亞種,原產自法國勃艮第,現在在全世界範圍內廣泛種植號稱葡萄皇后。可以釀造變化多端的白葡萄酒。

歷史-發展[編輯]

該品種歷史悠久,在勃艮第南部的馬貢產區(maconnais)被認為是霞多麗的原產地,古時候人們錯誤的認為其親本為黑比諾和melon de bourgogne,也有人認為是白比諾的變種,直到20世紀末美國加州大學戴維斯分校的研究團隊通過DNA技術才認定出它的真正親本是黑比諾和gouais(一種白葡萄),並且它屬於Noiriens一族。
截至1994年霞多麗共培育出340個克隆系。

別名[編輯]

莎當妮是其音譯名稱廣泛應用於港澳地區。大陸統稱霞多麗。臺灣多稱夏多內。在國外他的名稱較複雜:arboisie

Tater tots are pieces of deep-fried, grated potatoes served as a side dish. They are recognized by their compact cylindrical shape and crispy colored exterior. "Tater Tots®" is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida (a division of the H. J. Heinz Company) that is often used as a generic term.

炸薯球英語:Tater tots)一般作為配菜,是將馬鈴薯用擦床擦碎以後油炸製成。 通常呈圓柱形,外皮酥脆。 "Tater Tots"實際上是亨氏集團下屬Ore-Ida公司的註冊商標,但一般也用於指非其生產的其他類似食品[1]

"Tater"實際上是"Potato"的變形(Potato->tato->Tater);"Tots"原意是「小孩子」,這可能是因為薯球的通常體積很小,也有可能是因為小孩子們非常喜歡它。[6][7][來源請求] 在一些地區,也有直接稱其為"Tots"的。
