The Food Lab's Emergency Cooking Kit: How to Fit All the Tools You Need in One Small Box

The Food Lab's Emergency Cooking Kit: How to Fit All the Tools You Need in One Small Box | food • marketing • intrigue | Scoop.it
When I recently moved across the country, I knew I'd be without my full kitchen for an extended period of time. So I put together an emergency kitchen-in-a-box containing all the hand tools, small gadgets, knives, and pots I'd need to cook just about anything. Here are the contents of my Emergency Cooking Kit.
starvibes's insight:

With food, the only thing that really matters is what ends up on the plate. Your guests (or customers, as the case may be) don't give a damn what kind of challenges you faced to get that food there. They only care that it's there, and that it's delicious.

1500 Year Old Bible Claims Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified – Vatican In Awe

1500 Year Old Bible Claims Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified – Vatican In Awe | food • marketing • intrigue | Scoop.it

It is believed that, during the Council of Nicea, the Catholic Church hand-picked the gospels that form the Bible as we know it today; omitting the Gospel of Barnabas (among many others) in favor of the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Many biblical texts have begun to surface over time, including those of the Dead Sea and Gnostic Gospels; but this book especially, seems to worry the Vatican.

starvibes's insight:

The Vatican has asked Turkish authorities to let them examine the contents of the book within the Church.  Now that the book has been found, will they come to accept the it and its evidence?  Will they deny it altogether?  Call it a “Muslim lie”, as did the “Truth” Magazine, in 2000?

Oprah and Other Celebrity Women Who Grew Up Poor

Oprah and Other Celebrity Women Who Grew Up Poor | food • marketing • intrigue | Scoop.it
From Hollywood A-listers to industry leaders, there are plenty of celebrity success stories who didn’t start out on easy street — in fact they actually grew up so poor they almost lived on the streets (or in one-room shacks and other financially strapped conditions). Who are these famous faces that once started out with nothing? Find out.
starvibes's insight:

“I remember 20 years ago not eating so my daughter would eat. I remember nights when there was literally no money,” she’s said. Still, Rowling found it hard to relax once the money started rolling in from her successful writing career. “I was terrified of pressing the wrong button and losing everything and having to look my daughter in the face and say, ‘We briefly had a house and now through a stupid error…’,” says the multi-millionaire author — who would be worth billions if not for the millions she gives to charity each year.

Like with like. A family member of mine sorts her kitchen tools into two drawers: “scoopy-stirry” (spoons, ladles etc.) and “cutty-pokey” (knives, vegetable peelers etc.). Sounds a little silly, but it works, and once you know where these drawers are, you can quite easily find what you need, even if you are not familiar with her kitchen...

(Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know About Salmon

(Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know About Salmon | food • marketing • intrigue | Scoop.it
Get the facts and learn (almost) everything you wanted to know about salmon: wild vs. farmed-raised salmon, how to tell if salmon is fresh, how to store it.
starvibes's insight:
Which is Better Wild Salmon or Farmed-raised Salmon?The answer is subjective; it depends upon your taste buds. However, Atlantic wild salmon usually isn't sold since it's mostly caught by sports fishermen and not commercial fishermen. Farmed raised salmon is consistently fresh and flavorful because it's shipped as soon as it's killed and gutted. Pacific wild salmon, which is readily available in West coast fish stores, is leaner than Atlantic salmon although its taste varies depending upon where it was caught. Pacific wild salmon varies in taste depending upon where it was caught and this adds to its interesting flavors.
