 QUOTE
"...steam was generated beyond the power of the canister to
endure. As a natural consequence, the canister burst, the dead
turkey sprang from his coffin of tinplate and killed the cook
forthwith."
1852 news report of an early canning industry accident

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 TRIVIA
Black walnuts are native to North America and have an extremely
hard shell, so they are not as popular as English walnuts.
Black walnut trees also secrete 'juglone', which kills many
herbaceous plants around the root system of the tree. It's own
natural weed killer!

The process of making granulated sugar was invented by Jean
Etienne Bore. He was born in America, educated in France,

he planted sugar cane and developed the process for making
granulated sugar from sugar cane.

 QUOTE
"Many are the ways and many the recipes for dressing hares; but
this is the best of all, to place before a hungry set of guests
a slice of roasted meat fresh from the spit, hot, season'd only
with plain, simple salt....All other ways are quite superfluous,
such as when cooks pour a lot of sticky, clammy sauce upon it."
Archestratus, Greek poet & gastronome (4th century B.C.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 TRIVIA
Luau originally referred to only the leaves of the taro plant,
which are eaten as a vegetable. It then came to refer to dishes
prepared with the leaves, and finally to the feasts at which
the dishes were served.

casserole is at least as real as corporate stock."

 DID YOU KNOW?
The Hangtown Fry was supposedly created in 1849 during the
California goldrush, possibly at the Cary House in Hangtown
(now Placerville). Food was expensive in the mining camps and
towns, and oysters and eggs were the most expensive. Either a
miner with a bag full of nuggets wanted the most expensive meal
he could order, or it was the last request of an outlaw about
to be hanged. The Hangtown Fry is eggs, oysters and bacon cooked
together as a scramble or an omelette.

 WHO'S WHO IN THE CULINARY ARTS
Henri Charpentier, late 18th - early 19th centuries
Henri Charpentier was a French chef who became John D.
Rockefeller's chef in the U.S. He undoubtedly popularized the
flaming dessert 'crepes Suzette' in America.  Some sources,
probably erroneously, attribute the actual creation of the dish
to him either at the Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo or at
La Maison Francaise in Rockefeller Center.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
