Foodie Word of the Day: Al Dente

Al dente

Rice or beans that have been cooked so as to be firm but not hard. “Al dente” also describes vegetables that are cooked to the “tender crisp” phase – still offering resistance to the bite, but cooked through.

I always thought the question: “how would you like your pasta cooked?” was ridiculous, “I would like it cooked for god sake!” “What do u mean how? …until its not raw?…”

Turns out I was the ridiculous one (but don’t tell the guy I scoffed at)
