Interesting facts

While eating dinner tonight, I started reading the current issue of one of my favorite magazines, Saveur. One of the first items in it is a list of interesting food festivals around the world. At the end of this month, in England, there is a stinging nettle festival which includes an eating contest of uncooked ones. Can you imagine....no thank you. The rules specify you have to eat them with your bare hands. Yikes!

Another thing I saw that was really interesting was an ice cream hatchet from a new collection in a museum in Manhattan. I tried to find a picture because it really is a silver hatchet made just for slicing ice cream, which, should you be interested, ice cream was originally eaten with a fork.
