.................................................................
CHECK THE WEBSITE DAILY - I am posting a new FOOD QUIZ question
each day on the website, along with a Daily Culinary Quote,
Daily Trivia and other interesting food items.

The Website was down for 13 hours on Friday, as the 2 hour move
to a larger server turned into an ordeal of 13 hours. The move
was necessary because the site has grown quickly with well over
2,000 pages now. The new server leaves plenty of room to grow
even more. I apologize for any inconvenience the down time might
have caused.   James

Your web site is FANTASTIC!!  I have only glanced at it so far. 
It's astounding.  I could live in it for a couple of days.  You
immediately answered a long-standing question, the methyl
mercaptan (if I have it right) in asparagus. I can't say enough.
I'm going to tell a lot of people about this.  Thank You, a
million times!!!  Carla

Thank YOU Carla for your great email, and for telling others

 WHO'S WHO IN THE CULINARY ARTS
Eliza Acton wrote what was probably the first basic cookbook
for the housewife rather than the trained chef with a full
kitchen staff, 'Modern Cookery for Private Families' (London,
1845). She was 46 years old when she wrote it, and had spent
years testing the recipes. The recipes were well written and
easy to understand, and for the first time ingredients were
listed separately, rather than in the body of the recipe.
This helped make the book an immediate success.
