спрашивает

Joanna Witt
Chocolate expert, writer and food industry consultant. Founder of Chocolate...  · 17 ноября 2016

Why don’t we eat turkey eggs?

спрашивает
Edie Mullen
Free range turkey farmer, Phoenix Free Range  · 23 декабря 2016
It all really comes down to what is commercially viable. If you have a turkey and that turkey lays eggs, you’re going to get much more money by hatching those eggs and rearing the young to maturity or to a certain age than by selling the eggs. Farmers buy young turkeys (or poults) at... Читать далее

Why does instant coffee get so sticky when it's wet, but real coffee doesn't?

спрашивает
Stuart Muirhead
Nutrition BSc, King's College London. @masha_budr  · 23 декабря 2016
This is because the two named coffee products are completely different in their qualities.  'Real' coffee is prepared relatively easy: coffee beans are roasted, sorted and ground. All the chemical constituents are safely stored in coffee cells and not released until brewed.  Instant... Читать далее

Tea: milk in first or second?

спрашивает
Joanna Witt
Etiquette coach, author and broadcaster. @williamhanson  · 9 декабря 2016
I often get asked this question and the answer is you should put the milk in second.  Of course if you’re a real tea connoisseur then you shouldn’t add any milk at all. The Indians and Chinese are mortified that we insist on adding milk to our tea. There are both practical and etiquette... Читать далее

Do mustards, horseradish sauce, mint sauce and other condiments need to be refrigerated?

спрашивает
Lili Harges
Nutrition BSc, King's College London. @masha_budr  · 18 декабря 2016
The short answer would be to store them all in the refrigerator once opened. The named condiments can all last for months (always check the label and try not to exceed a use-by date!) if stored properly. Back in the day the recipe for ketchup, mustard and others was different and most... Читать далее

What did Jesus eat at the Last Supper?

спрашивает
Maria Kornienko
Lecturer in Biblical and Religious Studies at the University of Sheffield. She...  · 13 апреля 2017
The Last Supper remains one of the most culturally recognised meals. We are so familiar with the image of Jesus and his disciples sitting around a table, but if you had to put some food on that table, would you know what to serve? All four gospels, Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John... Читать далее
