Words from the kitchen
Roasting: Heat a food without fat to release its taste.
Fresh cream: When the milk is resting, the elements which compose it separate according to their density, we obtain a layer of cream. The name "cream" is reserved for the product containing at least 30% fat. The designation "fresh" can only be used for raw or pasteurized cream.
