Belgium – homeland of french fries
The Belgians are absolutely sure and sincerely indignant that French fries appeared for the first time precisely when their national dish is called French Fries – French fries.

At the same time, the Iranian holiday pilaf – without a doubt – is worth the effort and time spent, and there is nothing particularly complicated in it, everything will turn out for a person who is confident and able to organize households as part of the production process in the kitchen.

Judge for yourself – what is difficult to remove with a peeler from oranges zest before letting them juice or eat? In this case, the zest can be removed in advance. Nothing terrible will happen if it even dries. Continue reading
