Hey guys, let's play the ABC game using culinary terms.

Here are the rules: The first person (me) comes up with a culinary term starting with the letter "A", the next person "B", the next "C" - and so on.

Give your term, but also give a short description of what your word is.

Let's Play!

"A"
Arborio Rice

Arborio Rice is used to make Risotto because this short and fat rice has an extremely high starch content. It is this high starch content that gives risotto its creamy texture.

Haricot Verts


French green beans; smaller, more slender and sweeter than the regular green bean. It is best to keep these beans slightly firm when cooked (as opposed to the Southern way of cooking large green beans to an almost mushy consistency).

This is a pan with indentations that you can put a bit of cake batter in and turn out a dozen or so of these cake bites at a time. Some like to but a bit of batter, then a bit of filling and then cover it with more batter.
