Nibble Tip

Did you know that vinegar is mentioned twice in the Bible? That Cleopatra dissolved a pearl in it and drank it on a bet with Marc Antony? That the Roman legions drank it every day to ward off illness? Why not use the vast resources of the Internet to research the foods you eat. Take turns presenting interesting facts and anecdotes. It will enliven dinner conversation, and you’ll never look at the food with disinterest again.
