"Advertisements are now so numerous that they are very negligently perused, and it has therefore become necessary to gain attention by magnificence of promises, and by eloquences sometimes sublime and sometimes pathetic. Promise, large promise, is the soul of an advertisement."
Samuel Johnson, English writer, lexicographer, critic and conversationalist (1709-1784)

Dear James
It is not only Chinese courtiers long ago (who had a problem with garlic) -- even today no-one in the  British Royal Family eats garlic (so as not to have breath that might offend), and as a result no-one who works for them is a garlic-eater either. I have a friend who works at Buckingham Palace and who, as a consequence of being forbidden to eat garlic herself, has learned to be inordinately atuned to garlic breath in others. It seems that the purer one tries to become, the worse the rest of us smell.
Yours, Michele

 TRIVIA
============================================= ==============
Billy by is a mussel soup of mussel stock, white wine, onions and celery with fresh cream. Can be served hot or cold. Probably named after William B Leeds, an American industrialist and regular customer at Maxim's, where chef Louis Barthe created Billy By. Another story says it was created at a farewell dinner for an American officer named Bill who was at the Normandy landings.

 ANCIENT & CLASSIC RECIPES
============================================= ==============
American Cookery by Amelia Simmons (1796)

To Make a fine Syllabub from the Cow
Sweeten a quart of cyder with double refined sugar, grate nutmeg into it, then milk your cow into your liquor, when you have thus added what quantity of milk you think proper, pour half a pint or more, in proportion to the quantity of syllabub you make, of the sweetest cream you can get all over it.

"But I, when I undress me
Each night, upon my knees
Will ask the Lord to bless me
With apple-pie and cheese."

 TRIVIA
============================================= ==============
Vegetables that are boiled actually lose some of their water content. They will weigh less after boiling in water than they did before. This is caused by the heat, which breaks down the cell walls and allows some of the water to leak from the plants cells.

Hi james,
I would like to make peanut butter for my class as a school project for my class, do you have a recipe? Jason

Crunchy Peanut Butter
From The Wild Vegetarian by 'Wildman' Steve Brill
http://www.foodreference.com/html/shopbookcookb.html

CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER
If you own a food processor, you can make a superior peanut butter in minutes. I'm sure you won't lack uses for it.

4 cups unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1/4 cup peanut oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground cloves (Optional)

1) In a food processor using the chopping blade, process 3 cups of the peanuts along with the peanut oil and salt, until the mixture is smooth. Include the black pepper and cloves if you want a slightly spicy flavor.
2) Add the remaining 1 cup peanuts and process until they are finely chopped.  (Add all peanuts at the beginning for creamy).
Will keep tightly covered in refrigerator for 2 months.

 QUOTE
============================================= ==============
"Cooking is an art and patience a virtue... Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing - love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist - not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the na´ve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love."
Keith Floyd
