Rack of lamb

The origin of the original name - the lamb's car - has several versions, each of which has its origins. So one says, for example, that in ancient Rome the word "quads" meant in military affairs the construction of troops in the form of a square. At the same time, the soldiers form dense ranks and stand close to each other, while the bayonets are held upright.

Sight, Smell, Swish, Swallow, Splash - the rule of five "S"

In the west, whiskey enjoys well-deserved respect, of the world's most popular strong drinks of the world, 19 are various brands of whiskey. Although there are many countries producing whiskey, only three of them - Ireland, Scotland and the United States have turned the usual, one might say, grandfather production into real art

"Single malt", "pure pot still" and "bourbon" respectively Ireland, Scotland and the USA. Ireland and Scotland are always arguing who owns the palm tree. But anyway, it is believed that the art of preparing this alcoholic beverage was brought to Scotland by missionaries. . Despite this, the Irish argue that whiskey is the invention of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

In the 16th and 17th century whiskey was produced throughout Scotland. Raw materials were usually barley, although rye and even oats were also used. Sometimes the drink was distilled several times, so that its strength grew.

Gradually whiskey became a real "national" drink of Scotland. However, in 1579 the Scottish Parliament passed a law permitting the production of the drink only to the nobility and the nobility. The government of England was led by a monopoly on the production of whiskey. Authorities gave official permission to produce only 8 large distilleries, which with the help of British soldiers drove the medium-sized producers out of the market. Small moved to the countryside - away from major cities with soldiers.

The Scots recommend whiskey to follow the so-called "Rule of Five" S: Sight, Smell, Swish, Swallow, Splash. In the Russian translation, this could sound like the "Rule of Five" P: Look, Sniff, Soak, Swallow, Flick the waters.

Rule No. 1: SIGHT - WATCH Evaluate the color and transparency of the whiskey, as well as its viscosity. The dark color of the whiskey does not always indicate its venerable age, because it could be "adjusted" by adding caramel. A very old whiskey can be very pale if it was held in an old barrel of bourbon,

Rule number 2: SMELL - PONYUCHA Turn whiskey in a glass and smell it undiluted. Professionals already at this stage dilute the whiskey with water (see Rule No. 5) to release its flavors. Evaluating the bouquet of the drink you can try to find in it the flavors of the following main groups and ranges: ESSENTIAL TONE (from candies to dried figs) SWEET TONE (from vanilla to chocolate) VEGETABLE TONE (from flower to straw) TONE CEREAL (from malt to chaff) PHENOL TONE (from medicinal to smoky-peat) WOOD TONE (from fresh chips to rum and mold) OIL TONE (from nuts to butter)

Rule number 3: SWISH - SMOKING Take a small sip of whiskey and how to "chew" it. "Savoring" the whiskey in the mouth makes it possible to get a more complete impression, because different parts of our language perceive different tastes: the tip of the tongue is a sweetness, the edges of the tongue are salinity, the middle of the tongue is acid, the back of the tongue is bitterness. Assess the balance of these main flavor groups.

Rule # 4: SWALLOW Swallow the whiskey, taste it, sharpen it, or soften it. Pay attention to the aftertaste: prolonged or which, pleasant and soft or sharp and strange. class whiskey is characterized by a long aftertaste, and its aroma is able to persist in an empty glass for several days

Rule number 5: SPLASH - TO FILL WATER The Scots believe that dilution of whiskey with spring water allows revealing its flavors and palatability. This is especially true for cask strength whiskey more than 50% of alcohol content, the consumption of which in its pure form will instantly numb your taste buds, significantly reducing your ability to adequately perceive the taste of the drink

Frappirovanie, shambing, decanting and other manipulations with wines

To ensure that the wine has brought its bouquet and flavor, has preserved the optimum characteristic of the variety and taste, it requires a certain temperature in the process of consumption. The best and comprehensive data on the quality of the guest gets by tasting his various varieties. To maintain a uniform temperature of the wine, it should never be shaken, subjected to rapid cooling or heating. For cooling and heating, wine requires a certain amount of time. And so we'll figure it out.

Фраппирование, шамбрирование, декантировка и другие манипуляции с винами

"Frapirovanie." Wines tend to cool. And first of all sparkling wines, keeping the temperature adopted for them. When serving white and pink, it is enough to let the bottles stand for ten minutes in a special cooler with water and ice. This method of dressing is carried out exclusively in the service room. Method of supply: in a bucket for cooling bottles, with ice and water, with coarse salt. So, how to do it: Put a piece of ice on the bottom of the bucket, bottles with sparkling wine are placed in a pail with ice with a slight inclination, and so that they rise over the edge of the bucket by about 10 cm. Then pour a guest of coarse salt onto the ice -chemical laws salt maintains a low temperature), a layer of salt must reach the walls of the bucket, then add water (half a liter will be enough). We get the brine. The bottle is taken out by the neck and rotated by it several times to the right and to the left. This process is repeated until a thin layer of ice forms on the inner walls of the bucket (it should not be rotated for too long, this can cause the sparkling wine to freeze).


"Shamping" - this term implies by itself the maintenance of room temperature for the bottles extracted from the cellars. Shabbing is subjected primarily to old red wines. This is necessary in the case when bottles of wine are kept for a certain time in wine cellars, standing or lying, and they must be given the right temperature before use.


Decanting - the type of supply of red wines - feeding them to the sample in special decanting baskets. Decanting is the removal of wine from the sludge by overflowing into original bottles, special decanters or jugs. This allows you to achieve the completion of storage and ventilation of the wine. In the process of storage, the color pigment, crystalline precipitate and tannins, on which freshness and age depend, primarily red wines, as well as port wines, are deposited. It should also be taken into account that for wines an inflow of oxygen is necessary, so that an optimal bouquet and taste of wine are created. Young wines containing tannins without being stored for a long time often benefit from intense contact with oxygen. The tannin tannin so softens their taste and the wine becomes softer and more tender. The very presentation of the presentation looks like this: gently lay the bottle in a decanting basket with a napkin, brush the basement dust and remove the mold, but keep the label. The bottle is shown to the guest, the candles are lit, carefully uncorked (the entire capsule is removed, the bottle must not be rotated in any case), clean the neck with a paper napkin, show the guests a stigma with a brand, take the decanter with your left hand, and raise the bottle in such a way that its right The neck was in the light of a candle flame, the wine was gently poured into the decanter without filling it completely. Pour gently, so that the liquid flows along the sides of the decanter. Through the glass in the light of the candle you can see if the wine becomes cloudy or transparent. Part of the wine is left in the bottle, we offer a sip of wine from the decanter to the guest, then we offer it to the other guests. Do not forget that they fill a glass of wine by no more than a third ... It's fascinating, is not it ... Before the meeting in the wine restaurant ... The game is worth the candle ...
