Use Culinary Herbs To Boost The Flavor Of All Your Dishes

Organic seasonings, including bulk herbs, are the good cook’s choice for great tasting dishes. organic spices are used to season all manner of dishes found in every cuisine of the world.

Greek Cuisine

Greek dishes from the sunny Mediterranean include foods that utilize lamb, olives, pungent cheeses, and red wines. These foods, with their own distinctive flavors, can be complemented by equally assertive
culinary herbs that can stand up to the job. Oregano is one of several organic seasonings used in Greek dishes. Black pepper and grated lemon rind are used to flavor meze appetizers, meats, poultry, and vegetable dishes such as succulent moussaka, a wonderful eggplant dish.

Italian Cuisine

Italian foods often utilize the wonderful tomatoes and sweet Italian frying peppers grown in the region. Tomatoes in savory dishes and in rich marinara sauces call out for a partnership with garlic. Garlic is one of the organic spices that can come in a dried powder form that spreads evenly throughout a dish such as a dip or a sauce, and works well in these types of cooking situations.

Southern United States Cuisine

The South is justifiably famous for its Cajun cuisine. Hot and spicy, it utilizes all of the flavor that comes from Cajun seasonings such as hot peppers, file, and other peppers such as cayenne, white and black. Gumbo, a spicy shrimp and sausage dish that is traditionally served over rice, cries out for all of the above to bring it to maximum flavor perfection. Cajun seasonings are available in blends so that all you need is a pinch–or several–from one container, rather than having to mix your own. Two peppers, cayenne, salt, garlic, onion and paprika all go in, and in concert create the mouth-watering goodness that is the hallmark of Cajun cuisine.

Pacific Northwest Cuisine

When you think about the “left” coast, you usually associate it with its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. The ocean and the wonderful, mild weather in this locale does have an impact on the types of foods that you would find in this gorgeous area, including all sorts of fish, oysters and clams, Dungeness crabs, beautiful berries, apples and stone fruit like nectarines and cherries. Keeping a variety of culinary herbs on hand to flavor all of these types of foods is the answer to great meals. Bulk herbs and spices are the answer for the busy cook who does not want to run out of vanilla extract when in the middle of making a fruit crisp, or savory culinary herbs that make a fish or clam chowder a memorable meal. Appropriate culinary herbs are the cooks simple answer for great tasting food, no matter what the cuisine.

The Aesthetical Refinement of Villemont Les Heures du Monde

Les Heures du Monde is the latest model of The Esprit des Artisans? collection. Limited to 88 pieces, this timepiece renovates the concept of the world timer by allowing its owner to read the time simultaneously in 24 different time zones. For Les Heures du Monde? VILLEMONT has developed its first in-house movement. The hour is read on a 12-hour scale and a day/night indication placed both next to each city and on the main bridge allows the watch wearer to know what time it is back home whilst travelling abroad. The article has the detail of the watch’s Aesthetical refinement.

This self-winding mechanical movement is decorated with the utmost care by the best artisans. Through their meticulous work, they embellished the movement with a modern touch, unique to VILLEMONT. The movement was developed and conceived in-house with the aim of combining the technical majesty of a complication with the aesthetical beauty of its decoration. As we all know, the movement decoration has to respect the functionality of each component in order to guarantee its performance. The VILLEMONT bridges, designed and decorated in full creative freedom, are an example of the perfect alliance between a traditional technique and an innovative design. Each component benefits from the greatest care so that the movement is not just the result of technical expertise but also a work of art visible from both sides through a sapphire dial and case-back.

On the dial, we can see the plate guillochée with the ? Clou de VILLEMONT?? motif. The 24-hour bridge is sand-blasted and features a local day/night indication in the shape of a V, a reminder of the brand name. The central date hand is blued so that it is easily distinguished from the hour and minute hands.

On the back, the watch wearer will be fascinated by the refinement of its decoration. The bottom plate is circular-grained, the barrel-bar, the automatic-bar and the balance-cock are sand-blasted and meridians have been engraved; nothing is left to chance. The final touch is given by the personalized rotor, sand-blasted with a ? globe ? applique, a reminder of the travel theme of this exceptional timepiece.

VILLEMONT’s case is in 18 carats red gold (5N), a sophisticated and masculine material which confers a strong and noble character to the piece. It is presented on a brown or olive green alligator strap with an 18 carat red gold triple deployant buckle.

Process engineering: Pneumatic Conveying Moves Ahead

Pneumatic conveying has long been a popular choice for moving bulk materials, either from storage facilities to a process unit, or between process units. However, pneumatic conveying technology itself hasn’t been standing still, and this can influence the choice between pneumatic and mechanical systems (such as conveyor belts or vibratory systems) and then among several types of pneumatic systems: dilute-phase, dense-phase or vacuum.

“Generally speaking, mechanical systems make sense with short, straight runs within a plant; they require less horsepower and sometimes can be a less expensive capital cost,” says Paul Solt, owner of Pneumatic Conveying Consulting, Allentown, Pa. “But they are usually a higher-maintenance choice, have problems with dust generation or contamination of process material, and are not as flexible in dealing with plant-floor configurations. Given sufficient capital, there is nothing that cannot be pneumatically conveyed,” he says.

Greg Steele, executive vice president for Dynamic Air, St. Paul, Minn., says, “Over the past 15-20 years, we’ve received a tremendous boost from EPA and OSHA. One by one, industries or applications where mechanical conveying has been the traditional choice have gone to pneumatic conveying. A decade or so ago, it was dry laundry detergent, then it was rubber processing and more recently pharmaceuticals. With pneumatic conveying, you reduce emissions and cut down on plant housekeeping requirements.”

Moreover, many new materials are more demanding to handle because of, for instance, reactivity or fire and health hazards; this also tips the scales toward pneumatic systems.

Because pneumatic systems run cleaner than mechanical ones and are less susceptible to product contamination, recycling materials is easier. A pneumatic system’s generally smaller product holdup also is an advantage for recycling. Some conveying systems are designed to handle different ingredients of a batch at different times, or must move the complete content of each batch together (which makes recycling of residues problematic). Mike Salvador, operations manager at Nu-Con Equipment, Chanhassen, Minn., says modern pneumatic systems need to be engineered with precise tolerances and should be capable of being disassembled, inspected and cleaned easily.

Entering another phase
No strict physical distinction marks the two main design options for pneumatic conveying: dilute-phase and dense-phase operation (vacuum conveying, which will be discussed later, can operate in either regime). Dilute-phase conveying is simply lifting and blowing powders or particles down a line, usually at higher gas velocities. Dense-phase conveying involves calibrating the line pressure based on the physical characteristics of the process material, trying to achieve full fluidization of material in the line, but moving it at a lower velocity.

“Dense-phase conveying was originally designed to meet the problems associated with the handling of abrasive materials,” says Mike Weyandt, sales manager for Nol-Tec Systems Inc., Lino Lakes, Minn. With the higher velocities found in dilute-phase conveying, particles can essentially sandblast holes into the elbows or connections of pneumatic systems, or can be degraded by impact with the walls of the conveying lines. “Many applications are now being handled with dense-phase systems because of process requirements that limit the amount of product degradation or separation allowable,” he says.

With dense-phase conveying, the designer strives to load the line with as much process material as possible and to run it at the most energy-efficient condition, which is just below the rate that would cause plugging. Over long distances or with high loadings, pressure variations can cause plugging and, to counter this, equipment vendors have developed various types of boosters that inject additional air as needed.

Dynamic Air, which has been offering booster technology for several years, is now introducing the DC-5 Air Saver unit. “Older boosters were simply put in place every 5 ft. or 10 ft. along a line and supplied a steady pressure,” Steele says. Some designers also experimented with adding pressure sensors and process controls to the boosters. “The DC-5 has a pressure-balancing valve that can regulate where pressure is applied automatically. In effect, the conveying line is constantly plugging and unplugging, which is the most efficient mode of operation.”

Meanwhile, Nol-Tec recently introduced its Air-Mizer injector, which is also designed to operate automatically to control conveying velocity in the line.

“The effectiveness of the dense-phase strategy is not guaranteed,” cautions Don McGlinchey, director of the Centre for Industrial Bulk Solids Handling at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. “Much depends on the detail of the stressing mechanisms occurring during transport and the material’s response. A dilute-phase system can be fairly forgiving to changes in material specification, but these tend to be more critical in dense-phase systems, leading to many operating problems.”

Pulling a vacuum
Technically, the only difference between a pressurized system and a vacuum system is that the former pushes material through a line whereas the latter pulls it. However, the two systems pose distinct requirements for inlet feeding and outlet dispensing, and the physical properties of the material being conveyed or the process layout might make a difference.

“A vacuum system tends to make the most sense when it is dispensing to a single destination,” says Pneumatic Conveying’s Solt. If there are several delivery points, the designer can split the flow of a pressurized system with diverter valves, which is not as feasible with a vacuum system, he adds.
“Vacuum systems are limited in capacity by the difference between atmospheric and vacuum pressures,” says Herman Purutyan, a vice president at Jenicke & Johanson, a materials-handling consulting company in Westford, Mass. “With a pressurized system, you have the design flexibility to raise the pressure as high as you need.”

There’s certainly no vacuum in terms of suppliers. For instance, IEDCO, Sewell, N.J., is now offering modular technology from Volkmann Vakuum Technik, Soest, Germany, to the North American market. IEDCO representatives say the technology is particularly suited to high-purity applications, such as pharmaceuticals or batch mixtures where there is concern about material left from a previous batch. A user can obtain dilute or dense-phase conveying by selecting from among 60 different vacuum generators; tangential or radial suction ports accommodate material properties such as dryness or stickiness, respectively, to control flow characteristics. Discharge valves have their pneumatic components outside the conveyor body, allowing for easy cleaning in place, according to IEDCO.

Cyclonaire Corp., York, Neb., addresses the pressure question both ways. Its HC Series system, thanks to a venturi tied to a blower, can use vacuum in one part and pressurized flow in another. A typical application would be vacuum unloading of, say, a railcar into a transfer vessel, according to the company. When the vessel fills, the system automatically cycles to a discharge mode, using the same blower to convey material along to its destination. Optional load cells allow the system to weigh and batch the process flow.

Because the pressurized side of the system uses relatively low air pressures, the system is well suited to handling abrasive materials. At cement-maker R-Con’s Plant No. 6 in Wichita, Kan., the HC system unloads railcars carrying cement into the plant, where more than 200 concrete blends are produced in different colors or compositions to handle architectural requirements. The system addressed one pressing problem – the buildup of dust in an unloading pit that had been caused by spillage from a screw-pump conveyor – while raising capacity and productivity at the plant. “Our railcars hold 80 to 84 tons each, and we unload them in about two hours,” says Rick Heise, production manager. “There’s no need to get down into the pit, no dust, nothing to clean up. When you time everything out, we’re getting the job done much faster.”

Coming down the pipe
Most experts in pneumatic conveying agree that technology changes in the field have been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Nol-Tec’s Weyandt says the company has introduced new broken-bag detectors and rotary feeders, which help streamline operation at the feed end of a conveying system. Pelletron, Lancaster, Pa., now offers several types of engineered elbows to improve the abrasion resistance of a conveying line. Nu-Con has launched a compact rotary-valve tube selector that allows a conveying system to feed multiple lines or to converge multiple lines into one; the unit has inflatable seals on all ports to ensure airtight conveying.

System design might be poised for potentially significant changes, thanks to the emerging commercial use of a new software combination: the tying together of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with so-called discrete element modeling (DEM).

CFD, which has been used in commercial applications in the chemical industry for more than a decade, models continuous fluid phases such as air flowing around a shape. “Our multiphase models have been used to solve particulate flow problems where the focus has been the effect of fluid mechanics, as opposed to particle dynamics,” says Ahmad Khadari, a business manager at Fluent Inc., Lebanon, N.H.

“Classical applications of this technology include cyclone separators, fluidized beds or classifiers.”
However, to analyze a system from the perspective of the particles a “discontinuous” phase – another approach is needed, hence DEM. It originated, says John Favier, president of DEM Solutions, Edinburgh, Scotland, in geomechanics, where it was used to analyze a problem like the load of a building atop a gravel bed. “We’ve been constrained by the availability of computational power,” he says. “In the past, we were able to analyze thousands of particles in one system at a time; currently we can process hundreds of thousands, and very soon we will be doing millions.”

At that level of detail, modeling the interparticle effects of something like a dense-phase flow or a complex geometry within a conveying-system component becomes feasible. This can eliminate previously necessary simplifications and potentially provide more accurate results.

DEM Solutions is advancing with several efforts to have DEM address materials-handling problems in the commercial arena. Favier says the company has a project with John Deere, Moline, Ill., to analyze the flow of grain particles in its harvesting equipment. It also formed an alliance this fall with Fluent to combine its program, called EDEM, with Fluent’s CFD software.

Industry experts are taking a wait-and-see attitude. “DEM, or CFD for that matter, aren’t really ‘there’ yet,” says Jenicke & Johanson’s Purutyan. “A pneumatic conveying system can be very complex to model and, so far, all the simplifying assumptions you have to make limit the software’s predictability.” Instead, he recommends trying the actual process material in a test system and using the results for design.

Promotional Eco Friendly Drink ware is an Effective Promotional Item

Promotional products are no doubt used on quite a regular and sometimes excessive basis in terms of their production, distribution and overall quantities. Naturally, most of these items are selected with one narrow-minded, business-driven goal in mind – gaining wide exposure to lift a business’s status higher, and their success, soaring. This popular pursuit of gaining and continuing elevated statuses through promo products is the standard.

How about if your targeting a young active market? Durable sport bottles are the clear leader for the sporty and health buff segments. Just personalized with your logo and distribute to your clients for maximum impact in fitness centers and sport related events.

The wide and varied selection of mugs and drink ware allows you to have a personalized item for most, if not all markets. Sure, other promotional products are effective in targeting a particular market niche, but we can always find a mug that also fits that niche while also appealing to other segments that a niche-dependent marketing product will fail to attract. Thus, in terms of market segmentation, mugs and drink ware have all the bases covered.

The best thing to do as a distributor of promotional items at a trade show is to not only provide Eco-friendly products, but to also spur an instilled sense of continued environmental care through the products themselves. Saving trees by using less amounts of paper and using non-plastic items are basics to start with and can easily be accomplished through correct promotional item selection to save the environment.

When you consider all the strengths of a promotional mug, it’s not surprising why most marketers use this as a giveaway for promoting their business. Though finding the promotional item that would best cater to your niche is a great strategy, you can always simplify things to just go for the true, tested personalized mugs and drink ware approach in promoting your business.

Print4Half, By providing non-paper or plastic based drink wares and mugs,this like will cut down on individuals continually using and then discarding wasted drink ware items. Our top listed Eco friendly drink wares contain Poly Star Delux Water Sports Bottle, Bike Unique Bike Bottle, Promotional Water Bottles, Poly Bike Sports Bottles, Poly Flare Sports Bottles, 16oz Polycarbonate water bottles, Super Squeeze Action Sport Water Bottle, Marathon Sports Bottle, Kingston Sports Bottle, Venice Polycarbonate Bottle along with many others with a flexible design studio where you are provided with an option of uploading your own images and sample designs.

On Print4Half’s view point taking a promotional item from standard to Eco-friendly is not troublesome or difficult. Actually, it’s much easier than one would think, especially since the green movement is in full swing. This said, there are many options of well-designed and Eco-friendly products for trade show purposes.

Home of Marlboro man mulls smoking restrictions

In a sign of how vilified smoking has become, Virginia — where the world’s largest cigarette factory churns out Marlboros — is considering restrictions on smoking in public places.
Proposed penalties for violations are hardly draconian: a maximum civil fine of $25 for smokers or restaurateurs who defy the law.
And a bill being debated Monday, which already made exceptions for smoking in private clubs and on outdoor patios, was weakened further by Republican amendments that would allow smoking in any establishment off-limits to minors and in any restaurant rented for a private, invitation-only event.
Still, the watered-down bill is a step beyond anything yet contemplated in Virginia. Year after year, more ambitious smoking bans have failed miserably before a legislature that meets in a Capitol where frescoes of golden tobacco leaves adorn the rotunda’s ceiling.
The original bill was a compromise between Democratic Gov. Timothy M. Kaine and Republican leaders of the House of Delegates, who have steadfastly resisted any curbs on tobacco.
The bill would not ban smoking outright, something Kaine sought to protect the health of restaurant workers.
And among other Republican amendments, a requirement that smoking areas be separated by a door and separate ventilation was weakened to require either a door or an independent air system, not both.
Even that version was unpalatable to many Republicans.
“Ask yourself, is this going to make it easier or harder for any of these mom-and-pops or any of these restaurants to continue to do business?” said Del. Bill Janis of Henrico, who denounced the bill as “tyranny” against free enterprise.
Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have banned smoking in most public places, including bars and restaurants. Other states debating smoking bans this year include neighboring tobacco state North Carolina, along with Kansas, South Dakota and Wyoming.
The Virginia measure managed to unite natural opponents of smoking bans — the muscular restaurant and tobacco industry lobbies — with the most ardent backers of a total ban, the American Lung Association and the American Cancer Society, who say it doesn’t go far enough.
Philip Morris, which operates the world’s largest cigarette factory about seven miles south of the Capitol and is a major funder of state political campaigns, opposes the measure.
Restaurant industry lobbyist Tom Lisk noted that nearly 70 percent of the state’s restaurants have already banned smoking, and that business improved because of it. He also said requiring restaurants to establish smoking-only cocoons with separate heating and cooling systems could put hundreds of small establishments out of business.
And public health advocates ridiculed the notion that the bill would protect restaurant workers when it still allows for restaurant sections where smoking is pervasive, which they would have to serve.

Purchase the Best Commercial Ice Machine for Your Operation-and Your Soda

I sit on a red swivel stool in my favorite diner, drinking an iced cherry soda from the fountain. As I indulge, my mind wanders from the sweet acknowledgment of sugar and carbonation to the perfectly formed ice cubes clinking agreeably inside my glass. How anyone can order a drink without ice is beyond me, as I take another spicy-sweet sip of the ice-cold beverage through my plastic straw. The lovely six-sided rhombuses float ethereally among the bubbles, swaying as I lift my glass and letting out a tiny crackle when the beverage begins to warm against my hand.

Chances are that the ice in my glass did not come from a bag at the convenience mart across the street. Soda fountains, restaurants, bars, hotels and many other food and beverage service establishments likely have their very own commercial ice machines. These are not your typical home-refrigerator ice makers. These machines produce ice day in and day out, capable of churning out anywhere from 100 to 2,000 pounds of ice in a 24-hour period. Just think how many ice-cold cherry sodas that could make!

You may wonder how you can get a commercial ice maker to call your own. If you are a restaurant operator yourself, you probably know that there are several things to consider before you decide to buy:

New or used? No matter who you are, it is always better to buy new. Despite the increased capital needed to do it, buying a new machine typically ensures a warranty, a trustworthy manufacturer and knowledge that you are getting a clean, well-functioning unit. There is no such confidence with old, used machines.

Air cooled or water cooled? The environmentalists among us will always push air-cooled commercial ice machines, which help cool the condenser with ambient air. There are even remote condensers, which are always air-cooled, that go on the roof. Water-cooled machines are not only more expensive but can end up dumping hundreds of gallons of water down the drain during ice production.

What size machine is right? If you run a large restaurant or food service business with a hefty customer base, you will want a machine with an ice yield to accommodate it. Consider your peak periods on the busiest days of the week, figure out about how many people you serve at those times, and multiply about one and a half pounds of ice per customer.

Here’s another fact: not all ice comes in cubes. Ice can come in nuggets, flakes, chips, contour cubes and more. When restaurant owners or managers assess their needs within the operation, they will choose a commercial ice machine based on the type of ice they need. Most ice machines produce one of the following three types of ice:

- Cube ice. Cube ice is the most common ice in restaurant and bar beverages. Many restaurants serve whole cubes to achieve that classic clink, adding a sense of sophistication to even a simple cherry soda. Cube ice comes in full or half sizes, although some restauranteurs prefer half size cubes (typically 7/8″ x 7/8″ x 3/8″ in size) since these cube types displace more liquid than full size cubes, thus requiring less soda to fill the glass.

- Nugget ice. The small, pebble size ice that you often see blended into smoothies at your favorite juice bar is usually called nugget ice. Many people recognize it as the ice Sonic® restaurants use. This ice is compressed with a higher water-content than cube ice, so it absorbs flavors better and cools liquid quickly. People love nugget ice for its soft, chewable texture.

- Flake Ice. Flake ice tends to find its home in grocery store deli display cases more often than in customer drinks. Flake ice, much like nugget ice, holds cold temperatures well. Its flake-like shape is also perfect for molding around displays of fish, deli foods or drinks to keep them cold, fresh and looking good.

As I take another gulp of cherry soda, I remember my last trip to the local grocer, checking out the seafood department and catching a glimpse of the veritable mounds of flake ice covering dozens of whopping walleyed pike. Suddenly I am thankful for the half size ice cubes in my glass, despite the fact that I was ready for a cherry soda refill ten minutes ago.

Those in the food service industry have many options when thinking about purchasing commercial ice makers. Always consider your business and your menu items or retail product needs before buying, so you can choose the best machine for your operation. As for me, until they make a machine that dispenses cherry soda flavored ice cubes, I am better off visiting the local watering hole for my favorite iced beverages.

Choose Envelope Sizes As Per Requirement

Envelopes are mostly needed in business world as well as for personal purpose. They are required in almost every workplace or any organization. They come with gum flap that is moistened to seal. The most widely used envelopes sizes are C4, C5, C6, padded and DL. Different envelope sizes are available in market. One can opt for envelope which best suits the stuff that has to be placed inside the envelope. Let’s discuss in brief about various sizes of it.

If you send envelope that has unusual size, then it may require additional postage so it is better to know about the weight, dimensions and measurement required for postal purpose beforehand. Select the right size of envelope which suits your requirement since they have great impact on the overall appearance of the envelope.

Envelope of C4 size can hold sheet of A4 size. The dimension of this type of envelope is 324mm x 229mm. They are available with peel and seal flaps and are available in hues such as white and brown colour. Envelope of C4 size could be used for mailing hefty documents and delivery notes.

Envelope of C5 size can hold sheet of A5 size. The dimension of this type of envelope is 229mm x 162mm. They are available with peel, seal flaps and double security self-seal flaps. They are available in brown and white hues. It is the most commonly used envelope size for purpose of mail shots and business letters. The weight of envelope of C5 size should range from 90 gsm to 130 gsm (grams per square inch).

Padded envelopes are mostly used for mailing heavy documents. The benefit in using these is the aspect of protection and security which they provide. They are resistive to tear and damage so you can be tension free about the delivery of your stuff with utmost security and protection. Even non-fragile items could be sent using this envelope.

This kind of envelope has a layer of bubble wrap attached at inner side. Through the bubble wrap, one can hardly find out about the stuff inside the padded envelopes. Even non-fragile items could be sent using this envelope. So choose envelope as per your requirement as per the stuff which you need to mail.
