    If there’s one thing you probably want to avoid as a member of the Royal household staff it’s getting on Queen Elizabeth’s bad side. Especially, if you’re her personal chef. In the new book, "Dinner at Buckingham Palace," written by former royal servant Charles Oliver, he reveals that the queen was royally peeved when she bit into her dinner salad only to find a slug in her greens. (Honestly, can you blame her for being mad?)According to Oliver, the queen and Prince Philip regularly eat their meals with notepads so they can send their suggestions back to the kitchen. This time,...

    Some parents are seeing red over a ketchup crackdown at a New York school district. Newsday reports that the Eastport-South Manor Central School District on Long Island is limiting students to two 9-gram packets of the condiment at lunch. Assistant Superintendent Timothy Laube told families in a letter this week that ketchup and other condiments "have little or no nutritional value." The district eliminated pump dispensers for condiments last year and switched to packets. Parent Tim Petrou called the condiment cap "a little ridiculous." He said kids "should be allowed to have ketchup." But school board member and parent Jeff...

  • South Korea: The women of the Gwangjang Market

    11/09/2018 9:26:51 AM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 23 replies
    The sun sets on a cool autumn Sunday afternoon but the action is just getting started at one of Seoul's oldest establishments - the Gwangjang Market. The century-old market began its life as the Joseon dynasty was coming to an end with merchants looking to counteract the increasing influence of their Japanese counterparts. It survived the Japanese colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula from 1910-1945, but part of the market was destroyed in the 1950-1953 Korean War. What survives today is a bustling market that offers traditional clothes and persimmon-dyed fabrics. Fresh fish, local meats, rice cakes, and huge vats...

    The Korea Times ^ | October 30, 2018 | Kim Rahn
    Six thousand people will be invited to make kimchi in downtown Seoul over the weekend at the fifth Seoul Kimchi Festival. The annual festival will kick off at Seoul Plaza and nearby Mugyo-dong area on Friday through Sunday, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said. People in Korea have traditionally made a large amount of kimchi before winter, so they can eat the fermented cabbage during the cold season when it is hard to get greens. Kimjang, the winter kimchi-making practice where families and neighbors gather to exchange labor and share food, is designated on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list. During this...

    Research shows that the harmful effects of light drinking outweigh the benefits touted by other studies ST. LOUIS — We often see studies that tell us not only is light or moderate drinking not harmful to our health, in some cases, it’s actually good for us. But new research out of Washington University’s School of Medicine suggests that daily glass of wine may not be such a good idea after all. Instead, it actually raises your risk of dying sooner. According to the study of more than 400,000 American adults, light drinkers — regardless of age — are 20 percent...

    BestLife ^ | 4NOV18 | Diana Bruk
    I have a friend who always drinks his coffee black with no sugar (and is rather pretentious about it, mind you), and whenever the server asks him if he wants milk, he makes the same joke: “I’ll take it black, like my soul.” Now, a new study published in the journal Appetite suggests there may be something to that. Researchers at the University of Innsbruck in Austria asked more than 1,000 men and women to self-report their taste preferences and answer a questionnaire that assessed their Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality....

    From Delish Ahead of National Sandwich Day, Oscar Mayer decided to settle a very important debate that's been around for quite some time: they declared hot dogs official members of the sandwich family. That is, they believe hot dogs are sandwiches. Just for funsies (and advertising purposes, but we'll get to that later), they also dropped an official Oscar Mayer "Is a Hot Dog A Sandwich?" hotline this morning, which you can reach at 1-833-SNDWICH. The hotline is toll-free and asks you to give any and all thoughts-whether you agree with the company on their stance or not-on the subject....

    ESPN’s Monday Night Football Countdown team should probably stick to sports after angering an entire town over their choice of chicken wings. The crew was in Buffalo, N.Y., for the Buffalo Bills-New England Patriots matchup and decided to host a pre-game segment revolving around the city’s pride and joy — Buffalo wings. However, the segment, titled “What’s your sauce,” did not please native Buffalonians. Instead of featuring a local establishment for its “true Buffalo flavor,” the commentators had Applebee’s, which was sponsoring the show.

    McDonald's is hoping a big new breakfast sandwich will help bring in more customers. Triple Breakfast Stacks will hit menus on November 1. They're modified versions of McDonald's popular Egg McMuffin -- they will include two slices of American cheese, two sausage patties, bacon and an egg, The sandwiches are available on a McMuffin, biscuit, or McGriddles cakes. The new items are designed to help McDonald's solve a problem: Fewer Americans are eating at the fast food chain. A new breakfast could help bring them back. In a statement on Tuesday, the company said that the items are inspired by...

    The European Union Parliament has voted to ban single-use plastics. Parliament, the EU’s legislative body comprised of 751 elected members (MEPs), voted 571-53 in favor of the bill. Banned items will include plastic plates, cutlery, and straws, and the proposal also calls for a reduction in the use of other single-use food and beverage containers such as plastic cups, according to the BBC. The European Commission, which proposes legislation to the EU Parliament, put forward the ban in May in response to ongoing public awareness of and outcry against plastic pollution, particularly in the world’s oceans. The MEP behind the...
