food: September 2012 Archives

275x250.jpg The world's first high-street shop where customers pay by Tweet instead of money has opened in central London dubbed "The Tweet Shop."

At the standalone retail outlet from Special K, customers are encouraged to put away their money and pay for Cracker Crisps by simply Tweeting a message about the snack.

The shop is staffed by a number of Special K girls in iconic red dresses who will check each customer's Tweet before handing over the crisps.

Kim Murray, 28 from London, was the first person to pay for the product with a Tweet at the Soho's Meard Street store. The shop is open from 9am to 5pm until Friday 28th September.

More than half of 2,000 people polled said a roast with all the trimmings was most likely to evoke memories of the taste and sounds of a Sunday lunch, surrounded by their family as a youngster.

Runner up was Shepherd’s Pie, with rice pudding, egg and chips and bangers and mash closely following. Angel Delight came sixth, while beef stew and dumplings filled seventh.

Toad-in-the-hole came in at eighth while cheese on toast and beans on toast completed the top ten.

Researchers also found that 44% said a meal was most likely to remind them of their childhood simply because it was their favourite dish growing up.

It's said that the White House beers were created after Obama bought a home brewing kit for the kitchen and started making recipes from a local brew shop.

Writing online it's said that a couple of home brewers who work in the White House helped to amend the recipes and produce the first alcohol brewed or distilled on the White House grounds.

"Like many home brewers who add secret ingredients to make their beer unique, all of our brews have honey that we tapped from the first ever bee-hive on the South Lawn," said a spokesperson.
