food: February 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg A wacky restaurant in London has started selling ice cream which is made from human breast milk… and served with a rusk and shot of Calpol.

Bosses at The Icecreamists in Covent Garden say the £14 per serving 75% breast milk ice cream - dubbed Baby Gaga - is surprisingly tasty and good for you.

After the breast milk has been expressed on site it is pasteurised and then churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest. Then it's ready to go on sale.

Because of demand, the restaurant is now appealing for breast milk donations and say women will be paid £15 for every 10 ounces of milk… who's going to be nipping out to give it a try?

275x250.jpg37% of Brits say they live on a diet of ready meals, snacks and left-overs from Monday to Friday and never cooking a mid-week evening meal.

A survey of 3,000 people found that many never cook their mid week evening meal from scratch and always go for the easy option.

70% attribute their dependency on convenience meals and snacks to hectic and stressful lives blaming working longer hours and parenting commitments.

And despite one in three thinking their health is suffering due to their eating habits the average Brit spends only 32 minutes creating their mid-week evening meal.

32 mintute, I know, it's crazy... haven't these people ever heard of a microwave.

275x250.jpgMeasuring a mouth-burning 1.17 million on the Scoville Scale, this is the the hottest chilli in the world… and it was grown by accident in Lincolnshire.

Dubbed the 'Infinity Chilli' the fiery food has been tested by boffins who say it's considerably hotter than previous title holder, the Bhut Jolokia, from India.

It was grown by green-fingered Nick Woods who runs 'Fire Foods' from his home and says one day he notices the crossbreed chilli in his greenhouse.

Intrigued, he decided to sample it, but he soon regretted the move when a powerful burning sensation hit the back of his throat and was so strong he couldn't talk.

Speaking of the chilli he said: "I felt physically sick. I really wouldn't recommend anybody eat it raw like that"… obviously we didn't ask him for a quote straight after eating one.
