Things Your Grandmother Should Have Taught You

Reheating pizza:

Unless you like your pizza plasticky with a hint of cardboard, reheat in the oven, not the microwave. Microwaving overheats the cheese, making it bubble up into a solidified mess, and hardens the crust. Baking in the oven for 10/15 minutes (~140 ºC) should do it; depends on how melted you like your cheese.

Stale bread:

Make panzanella! Chop up tomatoes, red onion and cucumbers ,and toss with small chunks of bread in a 1:2 red wine vinegar–olive oil mixture. Leave for 20/30 minutes, then add basil.

Graham-cracker crust:

Some American recipes (usually for pies) call for a graham-cracker crust, which is super-easy, except that we don’t have graham crackers in New Zealand. Wheat digestive biscuits work as an okay substitute, but if the recipe you’re using (there are hundreds online) doesn’t call for cinnamon, add some. Make sure your pie dish is well buttered before pressing the mixture in.

: Interior – Industrial Soviet Beerhall – Night It was late November and cold as hell when I stumbled into the Zhiguli Beer Hall. I was in Moscow, about to take the trans-Mongolian rail line to Beijing, and after finding someone in my hostel who could speak English, had decided
