Ran out of chicken stock cubes, except for this interesting little box. Got no clue what language it’s in. One reassurance, though, it’s still from Unilever.

Eating alone is one of the downsides to (business) travel. That’s why we came up with Shareatable. It is an initiative that makes it easy for (business) travelers to join others at their table and eat together. Tables in (business) hotels are often occupied by only one person, even though most (business) travelers admit that they really don’t like eating on their own. However, asking somebody you don’t know whether you can join them is just too scary. Shareatable makes this so much easier!
I am an information glutton. Seriously. So stumbling upon whole BBC radio series about food from all kinds of angles, is like getting an instant info-high. Free!
About 12 years ago, I invested some time in making a business plan for listening to books and magazines on your mobile phone. Seemed like a good idea at that time, yet we could not get to a proper solution to let customers pay for the service.
Only 4 weeks ago, I started with playing around with audiobooks myself, via the Audible website. I honestly can say that I am totally hooked. Doing the dishes, hanging up laundry, weeding the garden, all the more or less boring household chores have become a valid excuse to spend a some time with the latest thrillers and mysteries.
And today, I finally discovered the podcasts, the often free, short and informative columns. And not only that, it appears that there is a whole food podcast scene as well. I know, for many of you this is old news, did that, etc. Still, if any of you is a bit like me, often overwhelmed by the enormous amount of infotainment out there, and too occupied to dig into all of it, this may be a useful tip.
There are probably many ways to get the podcasts to your phone or pc, right now I am using iTunes. Browsing through the podcast selection within iTunes makes me feel like kid in a candy store. I’ll keep you updated about my favourite episodes and other great finds. Have a go yourself!
Vanilla is a bean. It is the second most expensive spice after saffron. Even though it is very expensive, it is used commercially as well as domestically. It is used mainly in baking, aromatherapy, and the perfume industry.
The vanilla ice cream is flavored with either real beans added while cooking or the extract of vanilla depending upon the cost of the product. It has a paler, whiter appearance than French vanilla. The base of the vanilla ice creams is cream. Many times flecks of vanilla are added in the vanilla ice creams. These ice creams do not require any heating process.
French vanilla ice cream has egg yolk in it. The egg yolk is responsible for the rich yellow color of French vanilla. Egg yolk is also responsible for a smoother consistency of the ice cream. French vanilla ice cream does not have flecks of vanilla; they are strained out during cooking. The base of French Vanilla ice cream is egg rather than cream. This preparation requires heating as the base is actually a custard.

This was the request of the public train network in the Netherlands last year, to all the people travelling to Amsterdam during Koninginnedag. Koninginnedag is a nation-wide celebrated holiday, involving lost of orange-themed dress up and – at least as important – lots of drinking in public spaces. Despite the permanently increasing local legislation to prohibit this. Sure…
So, train travellers where allowed to bring one piece of alcohol to the train station with them. And even that is no longer allowed as of this year. Why?!
