Have you ever tasted hell? You know, that fire pit of regret?

Marmite yeast extract in 125g jar

Maybe you didn’t grow up in a country with a queen. And I’m not talking about the sassy ones with mustaches.

Marmite is 100% devil spawn. It’s a yeasty jam that parents force feed their children because it’s the only form of torture allowed in the Geneva Accord.

Porsche knives are on the cutting edge

Most people know Porsche for their cars. But did you know they also design products for various companies? These products are loved for attention to detail and revolutionary shapes and ergonomics. This knife is a good example of creating a knife that is exceptionally sharp and comfortable. It also has a distinct Porsche look.

Chroma Type 301 Designed By F.A. Porsche 10 Inch Chef Knife

Cutting with a Chroma Type 301 knife is like driving a Porsche, and for good reason. Designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche (the designer of the Porsche 911) with input from renowned Austrian chef Jörg Wörther, Chroma Type 301 cutlery excels in both performance and looks. Sleek and sexy, each knife looks like one seamless piece, but the blade and handle are actually different types of steel. The blade is crafted of superfine Japanese 301 steel and hand-sharpened into an acutely sharp angle for precision cutting. The handle is made of durable 18/10 stainless steel, triangular in profile and flat-topped for leverage, a totally unique and ergonomic design. Announcing the transition spot between handle and blade is a metal “pearl” that lets the fingers know their position, in place of a bolster. The comfort and control, not to mention the spectacular visual appeal, of a Chroma Type 301 knife have made ardent converts of many chefs worldwide.

Make your own fresh mozzarella

I remember the first time I saw someone make fresh mozzarella on television. I think it was the Barefoot Contessa or Martha Stewart who hosted a fabulous dinner with an A-list gay couple in upper state New York.

One of the guys nonchalantly said “honey we are about to make some mozzarella, do you want to join us?”. He then reached into a bowl of cloudy water, pulled out a hunk of white goo, and with a few twists there was a shiny ball of mozzarella.

It was magic. How could it be so easy to create cheese? How could I do that?
