Indian cuisine is by far the most popular and so I list it as the first item.

Indian cuisine has been shaped by an incalculable number of factors - colonialism, the outside world, cooking methods, religion, climate, cultures and traditions, to name just a few. We are lucky to be favoured therefore by the multitude of great eating out places in Wembley.

We have organised our articles in a logical fashion.


Below is a list of common Indian items, dishes, desserts, starters that you're likely to discover in an Indian restaurant menu. Hover over each to see the definition.

Brazilian foods are a assortment of traditions and typical dishes, the diversity of which stem from the mix of African, Portuguese, local people and their own creativity with the availability of their own local produce plus those from external places like chilli, palm oil. 

Wine is most certainly not a cuisine but it's definitely a way of life. Like eating out, drinking out represents a higher form of living. It states to the world that your basic needs have been met. That you're no longer struggling with life and that you've evolved well enough to take your attention towards a higher standard. 


Wines are as amazing as they are delicious and they represent who we are as a species. For you, we've put together a short series of wine-related articles - Wine Focus: First Sip Series to open your eyes to the possibilities.


We cover Wine as a topic also on our blog and include such categories as Drink & Wine, French Wine, Italian Wine, An Introduction to Wine , Wine Focus, Choosing Wine, Gift Ideas, Practical Tips, and more to follow.

Hamburgers are popular foods the world over. McDonald's played its part in helping this popularity. Burger King shortly after added to this popularity. Even earlier though, in the UK, was Wimpy. So yes, the Wimpy franchise still exists.


Hamburgers or beef burgers have been honed to be absolutely delicious and the secrets to creating great burger meals are now well known.

Cakes, Sweets and Condiments

Whether or not we like it sweet things are here to stay. A lot of words have been written about carbohydrates, sugars and their impact on our health overall.

 

But when you consider that everything in moderation is the motto for life then you'll open you eyes to the amazing creations all around. I mean who would pass up the chance to celebrate a milestone or wedding without a cake?


And like many places, Wembley has its fair share of Cake shops and you could do worse than start with these cake shops.

Caribbean cuisine is on the rise. It has always been under-represented even though there has never been a shortage of the ingredients.


There is great variety between the islands and most islands have been extremely creative with plantain, rice and peas, the use of sweet potatoes, hot pepper sauces, stews, fish etc.


Our blog articles are organised too into West Indian Cuisine and Caribbean Cuisine categories, both of which are pretty much the same thing.

Chinese food is a popular choice for those who might like the idea of spicy foods, but in practice struggle with it. Like the country, China, the cuisine is as diverse and you might expect.


Luckily there is no shortage of excellent places in Wembley to choose from, when dining out, to eat Chinese food.

As with other cuisines, we have broken our articles down into the following categories for your perusal - Desserts, Dim sum, Food Sophistication, Hints & Tips, Historical Facts, Most Symbolic, Must Have Ingredients, Recipes, Restaurant Mistakes, Takeaway Foods with more to follow.

Fish & Chips is another popular dish even though people tend not to think of it as special, when compared with other types of food. Perhaps this is because if it not considered exotic.


While limited in terms of the variety of foods, when done well, by expert, fish and chips can be a lovely treat.


Our articles form part of the Fish and Chips category.

Gently grilling food with dry heat has become a fairly popular way of cooking. Thermal radiation is transferred to the food and forms the basis of the common bar-b-q method that we all know.


Applying this method to burgers, vegetables, and other foods provide an alternative to cooking with oils but experts know how to control the dryness that's possible if you get it wrong.

All cultures become experts in being creative with what's available around them in abundance. Italy is no exception. This Mediterranean cuisine is yet another set of cooking methods, ingredients and recipes designed to keep families happy and together by ensuring the ingredients were fresh, seasoned and spicy.


But Italy has more than food - it has wine and is second only largest to France as a Wine producer.

Countries that have been cut off from the outside world like China and Japan have had all the time in the world to hone their food offerings. Tinged too by centuries of political, social and economic changes we in the West have come to benefit from the amazing varieties emanating from Japan.


Luckily, we all stand to benefit.

Kebabs have become so popular that often we don't think of them as being part of Turkish Cuisine. They are made from a variety of meats, many on a skewer. Doner Kebabs, that we all come to know and love, is often now made from Chicken meat, but most often, from lamb meat served with garlic sauce and chilli sauce and salad, depending on your tastes.

Some clever individual was so impressed with this specific Italian way of using dough that it made it's way out of Naples and we benefit from eating it. It is based on a variety of tomatoes, anchovies, mushrooms, cheese, pineapple, pepperoni, onions placed on a bed of dough. Enjoy!

Portuguese food takes advantage of spices from Portugal's colonial days in India, use of fiery peppers and of herbs and chilli, olive oil, seafood, meats, breads, vegetables and legumes, and much more. Time perhaps to see for yourself.

The Romans brought together what was three different territories into a single one - the Celts (warriors), the Iberians (farmers and fishermen) and the Tartessos. Needless to say, in addition to the Romans, the climate, the Mediterranean culture, cooking methods and available ingredients, gave Spain the sophisticated cuisine it has today.

Lightly prepared foods characterise Thai food. Flavourful, wholesome boiled dishes, spicy salads, pounded foods and curries underpin this kind of cuisine. They too have been influenced by other cultures. Stir-fried, deep-fried and steamed dishes influenced by the Chinese, form part of this cuisine too.

Unsurprisingly, Turkish cuisine goes way beyond Doner Kebab. There are a variety of kebabs too numerous to mention. Various regions place varying emphasis on different preferences of the use of rice, for example, over other dishes, different uses of sauces and so on. Important too is the use of olive oils when cooking especially in western Turkey.

If you're into avoiding dairy produce, eggs, honey, animal milk, butter, cheese and acting on your belief that animals are not commodities then these restaurants are for you. You may do well to check out our vegetarian series of articles.

Abstaining from eating meat, chicken, seafood and no flesh of another sentient being is becoming more common place. It may well save us from ourselves due to the extent to which scientists say the planet is getting affected by the different costs associated with eating meat.


Eating vegetarian is not new and other parts of the globe have fully embraced the practice. Many restaurants, by default and without fanfare, offer foods cooked for vegetarians. 


This is a topic growing in popularity and demand as so we will shortly be offering information to help you understand the issue surrounding it.

Coffee is not a cuisine but as the second most traded commodities after oil traded on this planet it is hugely influential. In the UK, coffee has evolved to have dedicated retail chains like Costas, Starbucks and Café Nero associated with it.


But it has been in England for many centuries and the expertise to make great cups of coffee has spread far and wide. Hotels, pubs, cafés and almost every eating place are all capable of making excellent cups of coffee.

Health & Diet

Many of us live to eat and so we sometimes over do it. Leaving aside medical reasons, we get overweight because we eat too much, we eat too often and we eat too much of the wrong things causing weight gain. 


It has therefore become critical for us to understand how to lose weight - on demand. By that I mean we all need to learn how to slim down whenever we need to in order to save ourselves.


So, I've begun learning that skill and I have documented it in a recent article - Lose 5kg In 14 Days Without Exercise or Salad that you mat find useful.
