You Are What You Eat
Classical Cake Art
John was feeling pretty hungry. As he walked home from work, he noticed a sign in a pub window: "a pie, a pint and a friendly word - £4".
Settled comfortably inside, the barmaid served him his pie and his pint. "Just a moment," he said, "where's my friendly word?"
"Don't eat the pie," she replied.
Have you been offered jars of Nutella hazelnut spread lately? "Cash only, no questions asked."
In the small town of Bad Hersfeld, central Germany, thieves got away with 5 tonnes of Nutella recently. That's about 6,875 jars (a staggering 27 million calories!) worth almost £14,000.
Two weeks previously coffee worth £25,000 had been stolen, and last August a truckload of Red Bull energy drink disappeared in the same region of Germany.
Police are looking for hyperactive, insomniac, chocoholics.
Nick-named gastro-gangsters, food thieves are becoming more of a problem as food prices across the world rocket.
Fancy a Cheese Course?
"A dinner which ends without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye." Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (French lawyer and politician, epicure and gastronome, 1755-1826)
In 1883, Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson in book "Treasure Island" when castaway Ben Gunn finally is found by young Jim Hawkins says, "You mightn't happen to have a piece of cheese about you, now? No? Well, many's the long night I've dreamed of cheese–toasted, mostly–and woke up again, and here I were."
"How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?" Charles De Gaulle (French general and president, 1890-1970)
In early 1900's, American comic actor W. C. Fields said, "The clever cat eats cheese and breathes down rat holes with baited breath."
