Here are some food trivia that you should know...

Let them eat bread.
Bread has become such an essential part of our diet. Here's some bread trivia to add to your knowledge.

  • Did you know that the ancient Egyptians were the first ones to bake bread? Archaeological excavations reveal that Egyptians baked bread at the time when they were building pyramids. Their breads were quite similar to the ones we eat today. Scholars believe that the ancient Egyptians have almost a hundred bread recipes.

  • The ancient Egyptians' first breads were unleavened (flat bread), but they also invented the "sourdough" that gave rise to the fluffy bread we have today.

  • Are Scotch woodcocks and Welsh rabbits animals? No, they are not animals; they're actually sandwiches. Scotch woodcock is buttered and toasted bread with anchovy fillet spread in between slices. Welsh rabbit is toast with melted cheese.

  • Bread can be frozen for future use. Just wrap in aluminum foil and keep in the freezer. Once, thawed, however, the bread must be used immediately, since it deteriorates faster than unfrozen bread.


Foodie vocabulary.
Beef up your vocabulary with these delicious but rather unusual terms.

  • Zabaglione is not a brand of Italian shoes but rather a fancy egg punch. The zabaglione, as we know it today, is actually a dessert made from whisked egg yolks, sugar, salt and sweet marsala wine.

  • Torte is not an omelet. It's a cake that comes in a multitude of varieties. The Cebu torta, for example, is a crumbly cake that uses tuba as a leavener.

  • Savarin is actually a kind of cake named after one of the most famous French gastronomes. This cake is soaked in liqueur; its center may be filled with cream and glazed cherries.

  • Duxelle, named after the marquis d'Uxelles of France, is a garnish made of finely-chopped and seasoned onions and mushrooms that are fried slowly until they are reduced to a brown thick mixture. The resulting mixture is used for garnishing fish, game or poultry.
