  1. well i know marbling means like the fat in a steak
    the leaner the steak the less fat
    but u need some fast for the steak to taste good
    and since the steak is brown and the fat is whiteish it looks like marble because the colors mix

  4. Marbling refers to the fat “marbled” into meat. This makes meat tender, juicy, and flavorful. The opposite is when you have a dry piece of meat with a fatty slab of gristle stuck on the side =(

    I don’t know what “canada approved” means.

    Monosodium Glutamate is better known as MSG. It’s the chemical name for umami =)

    papain is an enzyme found in papayas and pineapples, used as a meat tenderizer.

    chickens are referred to as “broilers”, “roasters” or “fryers” based on their size and age. Broilers are the medium ones, bigger than fryers, but smaller than roasters.

    fowl means poultry – chicken, duck, turkey, etc.

    I don’t know what conformation means in a cooking context.

    squab is pigeon.

    giblets are a bird’s organs – the heart, liver, and gizzard. They’re usually used in gravy.

    salmonella and e. coli are bacteria that can lead to food poisoning due to improper handling. You can reduce the risk of food poisoning by cooking everything properly (to a high enough temperature to kill the bacteria) and using proper contamination-avoidance techniques (i.e. don’t re-use cutting boards/utensils used on raw foods, wash hands frequently in warm soapy water, etc.).

    Salmonella was in the news this week since some tomatoes have been found carrying the bacteria and making people sick.

  6. 1.Marbling: The fat you see in cuts of meat that resembles rock marbling. USDA Prime meats contain more marbling than lower grades and is very desirable for flavor.

    2.Canada Approved: Most pork with this labeling is considered to be of the highest quality and free from microorganisms like Trichinosis.

    3.Monosodium Glutimate: “MSG” a white powder that actualy enhances the flavor of a dish with out salt. Many people have reactions to it like headaches, thats why chinese restaurants say “no msg” on their menus.

    4.Papain: an enzyme found in Papaya. I don’t know its culinary value.

    5.Broiler chicken: A smaller chicken than a “Fryer chicken”. Named so because it’s delicate flavor is better for broiling.

    6.Fowl: An older female chicken. The meat is much tougher than younger varities.

    7. Conformation: the bone structure on an animal.

    8. Squab: Very young pigeon. An awesome bird if done correctly.

    9. Giblets: The heart, liver, and gizzard of poultry. When you buy a whole bird the giblets should be stuffed in the cavity (in a plastic bag).

    10. Salmonella: A bacteria found in meats, poultry, eggs, and shellfish from polluted waters. Prevent Salmonela by using proper sanitation techniques, cooking poultry to 165F, and using certified shellfish.

    11. E Coli: Escherichia Coli bacteria found in the intestinal tracts of humans and especially cattle. Prevent using approved sources for beef and prcticing good sanitation methods.

    12. Kwashiorkor: When you see pictures of starving kids and their stomachs are bloated.

  7. 1. Marbling – depends where it is used. In meats it is where the fat is strung throughout the meat – makes it tasty and tender but not so good for you! In cakes it is where you don’t totally mix the different kinds of cake – it refers to the look you get from it.

    2. Canada Approved – is approved by the canadian food authorities I would guess. Meaning that they believe it is fine to eat!

    3. Monosodium Glutamate – MSG – this is known to be found in a lot of asian cooking and is pretty bad for you.

    4. Papain – had to look this one up!

    5. Broiler Chicken – had to look this one up too!

    6. Fowl – birds – chickens, turkeys, etc. Kind of like poultry – but there is a slight difference I believe.

    7. Conformation – no idea! Found this –

    8. A small bird – i believe it is a little like quail

    9. Giblets – didn’t know but found this

    10. Salmonella – a disease commonly found in animal products – especially chicken and eggs. When cooked it dies – which is why it is important to thoughroughly cook chicken and not eat raw eggs! (I believe it is only found in the yolk of eggs though… and obviously not in all eggs or chicken!)

    11. E Coli – had heard about it but didn’t know much about it…

    12. Kwa- what??? Lol – never heard of it….
