So that's what the holes in Swiss cheese are for.


According to a recent survey in Gourmet magazine, more than 80% of the time râpe â fromage is committed by someone the cheese knows.

Malt Vinegar


Okay, I warned you that not all posts here come straight from the "profound" pile (okay, actually maybe none of them has, now that I think about it)... but here's the thing, and I'm going to give you the short version:

Malt vinegar is really good on french fries.  

The British have known this for ages (as have I, as my Mother is British).  So, if you knew this (or if you're British), you may stop reading now.  Thanks for letting me waste your time.

I only publish this because my wife -- who has been alive for over three decades -- only just learned this the other day.  

How did I not tell her this?  It's been ten years since we first met.  I'm fairly certain that's thousands of french fry opportunities I -- and therefore she -- squandered.  I feel so negligent.

So, I'm taking it upon myself (you can thank me later) to spread the word.  

You know, just in case.
