Interstellar IPA

Wednesday, 15 May 2019 Interstellar IPA According to its copy on the 473mL cans, Interstellar IPA was made to honour Oumuamua, which is “the very first interstellar object ever detected in our Solar System and discovered by Londoner Rob Weryk in 2017.” Given that the beer is brewed by Forked River Brewing Company , I suspect that the Londoner is likely from London, Ontario—the home of Forked River. The beer is a 6.5% potion sold in 473mL cans. It has a faint amount of haze, a plush off-white head, and a dull gold colour. Interstellar has juicy peach and tangerine notes on the nose and a flavour that’s fruity off the jump and transitions into a sticky, resinous finish. Interstellar IPA is a flavourful ale. It is a bit too sweet, initially, and it could be a bit stronger, but the dank finish really provides the illusion of greater heft. Also, Forked River has included a helpful list of suggested food pairings (Southern BBQ; mild Indian cuisine; and shawarma fries), which is a decent touch. I’m not always a fan of suggested pairings, but this one works for me because it goes the extra step and extrapolates on why BBQ makes a good match. Rating: 8.0 out of 10. Posted by

Taste of summer: India’s love for mangoes

Twitter India is passionate about its mangoes – and the fact that the fruit is available only for a few months each year makes it even more desirable. Mangoes also signal the arrival of summer and their abundant displays in shops and carts foretell languorous afternoons spent indoors feasting on the delicious fruit. A love for the ages
The scientific name Mangifera indica proudly indicates the mango’s native land. There are references to mangoes in Sanskrit literature and artefacts in the shape of mangoes have been found during excavations from the Indus Valley Civilisation (3300–1300BC). Indian mangoes. Photo credit: Matjoe/Shutterstock.com
Today, India is the world’s largest producer of mangoes, accounting for 54% of the global supply. And while mango season runs from April to August, different variants mature at different times. Popular varieties like the Himsagar and Kesar ripen early in the season, for example, followed by the Banganapalli and Langra and then the Neelum and Chausa in the late season. While it’s debatable which state has the best mangoes, many agree that the most popular varieties come from Lucknow (Dasheri), Hyderabad (Totapuri) and Ratnagiri (Alphonso), near Goa. Food for the gods
The mango is also laden with cultural significance. In Hindu iconography, Lord Ganesha is often seen holding one in an upturned palm as a symbol of attainment. Having a mango tree in the yard is said to bring health and prosperity to the family. During some Hindu rituals, people place mango leaves at the entrance of houses as a symbol of peace and happiness.
While most often enjoyed on their own, mangoes abound in the diverse richness of Indian cuisine. Each region has its own mango recipes, using it in curries and rice dishes, as well as combining it with milk in puddings and with yoghurt in a dish called shrikhand .
When the season is over, people stock preserved versions of the fruit. Ripe mango slices are frozen, green mangoes are sliced, salted and combined with spices to make pickles and chutneys, while the pulp is used in ice cream and smoothies. They serve as wistful reminders of the best days of summer – until the season comes again.

Indian Poultry Market Report 2019: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecasts 2011-2018 & 2019-2024

DUBLIN , May 16,
The “Indian Poultry Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The Indian poultry market, consisting of broilers and eggs was worth INR 1,750 Billion in 2018. The market is further projected to reach INR 4,340 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 16.2% during 2019-2024.
India today is the one of the world’s largest producer of eggs and broiler meat. The poultry industry in India has undergone a major shift in structure and operation during the last two decades transforming from a mere backyard activity into a major industry with the presence of a large number of integrated players. This transformation has involved a sizeable investment in breeding, hatching, rearing and processing activities.
Indian Poultry Farm Market: Drivers
Increasing Incomes Coupled by Changing Food Habits: Broiler meat in the past had been considered to be a delicacy but as a result of increasing levels of urbanization and higher levels of disposable incomes, poultry meat is increasingly seen as less of a luxury product and more as a daily staple. Further with changing food habits and increasing exposure to global cuisines, the Indian population is increasingly converting to a non-vegetarian diet. Poultry meat is preferred over other meat products as it is considered more hygienic and is available throughout the year across the country at relatively lesser prices than fish/mutton.
Large Unpenetrated Market: The annual per capita consumption of broiler meat and eggs remains one of the lowest in the world and is significantly lower than many emerging and developed markets. As a result of the low penetration levels and continuously increasing income levels, however, we expect the per capita consumption of both broiler meat and eggs to increase continuously during the next five years.
Growth in the Food Services Market: Growth in the food services market such as restaurant and fast food joints are also creating a positive impact on the consumption of broiler meat and eggs. Both broiler meats as well as eggs represent important ingredients in both traditional Indian non-vegetarian recipes as well as fast foods.
Growth in the Bakery Foods Market: Eggs represent an important ingredient in bakery foods. The Indian bakery foods market is currently exhibiting strong growth rates. We expect the growth of the bakery foods market to create a positive impact on the consumption of eggs in India .
Key Questions Answered in This Report:
How has the Indian poultry market performed so far and how will it perform in the coming years? What are the major segments in the Indian poultry industry? What is the breakup of institution and retail sales in the Indian poultry market? What are the major distribution channels in the Indian poultry industry? What is the breakup of the Indian poultry market on the basis of various states? What are the various stages in the value chain of the Indian poultry market? What are the key driving factors and challenges in the Indian poultry market? What is the structure of the Indian poultry market and who are the key players? What is the degree of competition in the Indian poultry market? Key Topics Covered: 1 Preface 2 Scope and Methodology 2.1 Objectives of the Study 2.2 Stakeholders 2.3 Data Sources 2.4 Market Estimation 2.5 Forecasting Methodology 3 Executive Summary 4 Introduction 4.1 Overview 4.2 Key Industry Trends 5 Indian Poultry Market 5.1 Market Overview 5.2 Market Performance 5.3 Market Breakup by Segment 5.4 Market Breakup by End-Use 5.5 Market Breakup by Distribution Channel 5.6 Market Breakup by State 5.7 Market Forecast 5.8 SWOT Analysis 5.9 Value Chain Analysis 5.10 Porters Five Forces Analysis 5.11 Price Analysis 6 Market Breakup by Segment 6.1 Broiler 6.2 Eggs 7 Competitive Landscape 7.1 Market Structure 7.2 Key Players 7.3 Profiles of Key Players For more information about this report visit https://www.researchandmarkets.com/r/lycslj

At Lin Restaurant, a fine introduction to Burmese cuisine

Buffalo is known for three things: snow, sports teams that are 0-for-eternity championship-wise, and chicken wings.
Could Buffalo pizza make it four? The Wall Street Journal recently published a front-page article on the spreading popularity of cup-and-char pepperoni , a sign that another one of Buffalo’s culinary specialties has started to get the attention it deserves. Travelers and tourists usually know about beef on weck, and if they’ve read “The Last Fine Time,” they know to ask after a fish fry.
There’s one Buffalo specialty they never see coming, though: Burmese food.
With 15 restaurants in the area serving Burmese cuisine, there’s lots of variations. If people only have one spot in their eating itinerary, I suggest they go to Riverside. There, among wings, pizza and weck, they can also find my favorite Burmese restaurant in Buffalo, Lin Restaurant. The consistency and fine points of Lin’s dishes set it ahead of the pack.
Lin Restaurant, 927 Tonawanda St., has walls filled with panoramic scenes from Burma. (Sharon Cantillon/Buffalo News)
Lin Restaurant: Restaurant review Khin Maung Soe and his wife, Thain Hla, opened the restaurant and a grocery next door in 2014, six years after arriving in the United States from a Thai refugee camp.
The 50-seat room is punctuated with stands of artificial bamboo and lined with color photograph wallpaper of soaring Burmese temples, fishermen at work, and the camp the owners left behind. After years without alcohol, it now offers wine and bottled beer. It is one of the most serene restaurants in Buffalo, partly due to acoustics, and partly because it never seems to fill up.
[Related: Love Burmese food? Look back at our guide for Buffalo’s Burmese restaurants ]
Tucking into dishes like Lin’s papaya salad ($8), I couldn’t help but wonder why. Freshly matchsticked under-ripe papaya, with the crunch and tang of green apple but not the sweetness, is tossed with peanuts, grape tomatoes, shredded carrot, snappy green-bean-like long beans, and thinly sliced golfball-sized eggplants for a vibrant salad fired with chile and tangy lime and fish sauce dressing.
Lin Restaurant’s fish soup, mohinga, is a traditional Burmese dish with crispy pea fritter, cilantro, long beans and egg. (Sharon Cantillon/Buffalo News)
Lin’s versions of two core Burmese soups are exemplars of the form. Mohinga, a fish soup ($7) known as the national dish, is a catfish chowder with golden turmeric-coconut broth, holding rice noodles, sliced hard boiled egg, and sliced banana stem braised to the texture of cooked celery. Fried bean fritters on top add crunch.
Owno koksware, chicken coconut milk soup ($8), follows the same pattern. Fluorescent reddish-orange coconut turmeric broth covers fat egg noodles and chunks of dark-meat chicken, with sliced hard boiled egg and cilantro, topped with crunchy fried noodles. With a squeeze of the lime wedge, it’s a perfect introduction to the Burmese synthesis of Indian and Thai influences.

Tea leaf salad ($7), which uses tea leaves that have been fermented instead of dried as a sauerkraut-like green, is a scrumptious crunchfest. It is juicy with tomato chunks, savory with garlic oil, tangy with lime, and loaded with peanuts and fried beans that make it the noisiest salad you’ll ever eat. Substitute paper-thin raw ginger root for the tea leaves, and you have refreshing ginger salad ($7), a ginger fan’s dream dish.
Biryani chicken ($10) is Indian-scented basmati rice pilaf enriched with fried onions and cashews, alongside a piece of chicken, braised in the characteristic dark, dank Burmese masala of caramelized shallot and ginger.

A whole sea bass ($23), laid open head to tail and mostly deboned, is simply seasoned, floured and fried to a crisp. It can be had Thai style, topped with a sweet-and-sour mixture of pineapple chunks and bell peppers. My money is on the Burmese version, with sour, funky Burmese lime-chile sauce, lit with chile but full with flavor, so that when beads of sweat appear it’s like applause.
When much of the local Thai on offer has been toned down for nervous Americans, Lin’s versions are lighter, sharper and livelier than most.

Green coconut milk curry with chicken ($10) delivered verdant herbal aromas plus enough heat to break a sweat, with sliced chicken and vegetables like zucchini, green beans and eggplant. Pad ga pow crispy pork ($12) combines bite-sized chunks of fried, marinated pork belly with mushrooms, onion, bell peppers and Thai basil, redolent of licorice.
Pattaya fried rice ($11) was smoky from the wok, studded with peas, onions and leafy Chinese broccoli, wrapped neatly in an omelet and served with a squiggle of sriracha chile sauce.

A recent Lin dinner ended with an exclamation point of a dessert. Mango sticky rice ($5) is a deceptively simple combination: warm rice, fresh mango and coconut cream sprinkled with sesame seeds. When the mango is fully ripe, it’s a transporting combination. Many other Burmese places will serve crunchy, immature mango. At Lin, it’s been perfect, or they’re out.
I’ve been telling visitors for years that Buffalo is not a town where you should waste a meal on chain restaurants when there is so much local flavor. So if you’ve punched the wing and weck spots on your dance card, consider dallying with Buffalo’s newest specialty, and take Lin for a spin.
