Deseeding A Pomegranate

by: Lara Katz

When taking the seeds out of a pomegranate, do it in a bowl filled with waterthe seeds will sink to the bottom, the white pith will float to the top, and your clothes won't be stained from pomegranate juice spraying out at you!


 I have always loved food and cooking, even before cooking shows were everywhere.  I used to make my parents watch my very own “cooking show” live from the kitchen table as I would demonstrate how to make grapefruit juice!  That was when I was 6 years old.  After graduating from McGill University with a degree in Art History I completed a degree in Food and Nutrition at Ryerson University.  While at Ryerson a friend and I started a catering business specializing in one bite foods.  We took our customers’ favourite foods and made them mini, the perfect food for cocktail parties.  My favourite challenge was making mini beef wellingtons.  After realizing running a catering company was not compatible with having young children I decided to change gears and teach cooking classes to children and adults.  While I still teach cooking classes I also currently work as a product and recipe developer.  Last year I worked exclusively with cheese (not a joke) and this year I am working with vegetables.  Get ready…I have some great new products coming out and wouldn’t you know it….they are even healthy.  I have to say that working with vegetables instead of cheese has been a healthy switch.  I am always reading cookbooks (new and old), food magazines and food blogs which is where the name for my blog came from…I am always “dreaming up delicious” things.  I am looking forward to sharing all my favourite recipes and food finds with you and cannot wait to get started.  But first, I must go make myself a snack, I’m hungry!
