  1. Formaggi Ocello, photo policies aside, IS excellent - my favourite cheese is the testun barolo, a cow/ewe's milk mix matured in nebbiolo wine must..incredible. There's an eG member here called barolo, and every time I see his/her name online around the traps, I get a Pavlovian craving for cheese. :laugh:


    OK, that made me delurk. Great blog. I'm going to keep reading, so your cheese consumption may spike this week.

  2. At work I have fruit at around 10:00 am and fruit or a handful of nuts at around 4:00 pm. I eat breakfast at 6:30 and it's a long slog to lunch without something mid-morning. In the late afternoon I have an energy lull so a small snack gets me through to the end of the work day.

    On weekends or otherwise when I'm not working I don't usually snack.

  3. I sniff in appreciation, especially ripe fruits like strawberries, raspberries, peaches, but I'm pretty subtle about it (I hope so anyway). Like some others, I have done a lot of sniffing of wine so it is part of appreciating what I am about to eat or drink.

    Sniffing is not to see if it is "off" in some way. Although I do sniff stuff from my fridge if I am unsure about it.

  4. All of the above but noise is probably the most frequent culprit these days. I like to have a conversation when I'm dining out, but facilitating conversation seems to be a low priority in a lot of restaurants these days.

  5. I doubt you have anything to worry about because commercial stuff is so processed - it sits on shelves for months so I doubt it is particularly temperature sensitive.

  6. as far as I know, any fish sold raw as sushi in California HAS to be previously frozen to kill those parasites. So, while freezing it most likely does have some influence on the texture, I would never know, since that's just the way the fish comes here.

    Yes I believe the same is true here in BC. Also we do not have much of a day fishery here. Most boats are out for a few days and freeze fish on the boat as they are caught.

    Edited to add: Coincidentally this thread was revived today: Wormy Fish

  7. On the other hand, the most entertaining food show I ever watched was two women, from England I believe. In the one show I saw they were butchering a large piece of beef and drinking wine. As the show progressed they got tipsier and tipsier, and funnier and funnier. Does anyone remember these two?

    This sounds like Two Fat Ladies: link
