Gastronomy words


saute /ˈsəʊteɪ/

to fry food quickly in a little hot fat



Ciabatta /tʃəˈbætə/


I come across this word which intrigue me to speculate more on this. One of the reason because I love to jot down the words I learn and gastronomy jargon.

Frankly, I didn;t get the clear idea of ciabatta.

Wikipedia say it is made up of Wheat flour and yeastImage

later on , another source showed me this

A type of flattish, open-textured Italian bread with a floury crust, made with olive oil.

which one should I trust?? Big head me know….Btw, I enjoy writting this kind of post , and now I decided to write a new post title ” Gastronomy jargon”!


Decided to put on pictures to lure u all!

Great Vowel Shift Diagram


The Great Vowel Shift Diagram that I use 2 hours to draw it using microsoft word. and I am vomitting blood now. Hereby upload to reference and share for all. Please cite my this blog when u use this diagram.

Author: Kok Shuh Hong.

I come from Kemaman, Terengganu, Malaysia.

Date making: 25/7/2013 1.39am

Purpose: I am doing assignment about Great Vowel Shift, I found a diagram that indicate the Great Vowel Shift

wrong great vowel shift

The table that I used 2 hours to make, (vomitting blood now)

The table that I used 2 hours to make, (vomitting blood now)

But it is not correct, because the great vowel shift is the alteration of 7 long vowels, LONG vowels, the term LONG indicate that should be a colon (:) right after the phoneme to indicate the long sound.

hence, I make a diagram myself, with the refence from above diagram, and the source from my reference book that is right now rest on my table now =)
