General Food Trivia
Did you know that strawberries are not actually berries, but avocados are? Fascinating, isn’t it? Or consider saffron, the world’s most expensive spice. Made from the stigma of the Crocus flower, it can take around 75,000 flowers to produce a single pound of the spice. A fun food fact at your next dinner party? We bet our best oven mitts on it.
Let’s shift focus to some of our most-loved global dishes. That succulent sushi we love? It was originally a fast food item in Japan! And pizza? Its Italian heritage is undeniable, but it’s the Americans who consume the most. An estimated 350 slices are devoured every second!
Beverages Around the World
Time to quench some trivia thirst with beverage facts. The Irish concocted the first whiskey, and it is still a distinct part of their tradition. And tea? It’s the second most consumed beverage after water. China, India and Kenya are the largest global tea producers. Remember that when you’re savoring your next sip.
Culinary Terms and Techniques
Quick, what is mise en place? If you knew it means ‘everything in its place’, give yourself a pat on the back. It’s a necessary preparatory step in every professional kitchen. Let’s explore more culinary terms and techniques.
