Here you can see a pizza cooked in wood-fired oven. Maybe you have noticed that something is wrong. There is some soda on the table. This is a glass of "puma cola". Drinking beverages with as much sugar must must be the exception and not the norm.

How do you know if a pizza is indeed cooked in a wood-fired oven? To me pizza is pizza, I can't tell the difference.

I purchased this pizza from a local pizzeria, and it was saying "pizza cuite au feu de bois", which can be translated by "pizza cooked in wood-fired oven".
Wood-fired pizzas are much tastier than those made in an electric or gas oven, of course. They are refined and unmatched.
Historically, pizza is a traditional Italian specialty, originating in Naples, Italy. This recipe is made with a pine paste pancake and topped with a variety of ingredient blends. Old-fashioned pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven. Compared to other cooking methods, a wood fire creates a tantalizing smell that you will never find in pizza baked in an electric or gas oven. The smell that emanates from cooking over a wood fire is incomparable and irreplaceable. Wood-fired pizzas do not have the same flavor as others. The intensity of the flames chars the dough of the pizzas and their toppings very lightly, giving them an irresistibly good flavor.




Tonight, I bought another cheese pizza, this time at the supermarket. This time I didn't want to spoil the pizza so the beverage is not a cola but a beer.

Tonight, I'm going to show you another recipe.

Look at the photo below.

Here you can see uncooked pork spare-ribs.

If I was with humbert, Vasudev and some users of the forum in Texas, we would have a sunset barbecue with those spare ribs.
Now I'm going to show you how to cook it in an oven.

First and foremost, let's put the spare ribs in a ceramic cooking pot. Drizzle the spare ribs with beer.


Now let's bake it at 270° for 50 minutes.


Make sure that the meat is well-cokked (clear cooking juices and no pink flesh) in order to eliminate the risk of infection.


When it's done, serve with remaining sauce.

Tonight, I'm going to show you another recipe: Oysters and melon.


In the Hérault, if you drive along the N113 coast road from Mèze heading east and look out to sea, you’ll spot a series of odd-looking structures, like square frames on stilts sunk into the seabed, sitting in the waters of the Etang de Thau. They are in fact wooden tables or oyster beds, the place where these slippery and salty critters are grown.



Here you can see the oysters. Those Bouzigues oysters are produced exclusively in the Thau Basin.
You can also see a tool: the oyster shucker, available from fishmongers and kitchenware shops. If you're a beginner, you can shuck your oysters ahead of time and keep them refrigerated, covered with plastic wrap. Just don't wash them. Traditionally, mignonette - a classic accompaniment to fresh oysters - calls for golden shallots, but Spanish onion will do just fine.



Here you can see the freshly shucked oysters.

Is it true what they say about oysters, i.e., that they do something similar to what Viagra does? I wouldn't know because I never eat them.

It's probably a myth. I wouldn't count on oysters to wake up Mr Koko. However, the general health condition and the dietary plan have a very important role to play indeed. It's certainly better to eat oysters than a Mcdonald for one's health. A few oysters with a melon cost 6€: it's less expensive than a Big mac menu.

Look at the photo below.
Some users of the forum like humbert have recognized the distinctive shape of this sausage: it is a figatellu.
As you can see it is being dried, for at least one month. A weird fluid is oozing out: the figatellu is still alive, it's sweating.
Boiling it or roasting it? I will reveal the best way to cook this sausage.

I was a bit surprised by the question of humbert and I wanted to check if eating oysters triggers -unwanted- side effects.
Look at the photo below.



Here you are seeing the freshly shucked oysters. We have to make sure they are still alive. I put some music on (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFIj5dnCMkM) and I squeezed lemon juice on the innards: the oysters moved.
Once again, they smell like the ocean breeze and they are delicious. If you are offered oysters, be careful, if they have a strong, offensive or pungent fishy smell, they are not good.

I agree. If indeed it does work it's probably a placebo effect. A lot of it is mental.

As for McDonald's, sometimes I think eating out of a garbage can is healthier than a big mac or whatever other garbage they sell.
