DWS Box August 26 – Some pictures and Recipes

Every week, one of the highlights is the we get from FoodShare Toronto. This week’s box was full of really delicious things, including more perilla leaves, red garden egg, and sharp purple radishes. I like this box, because the greens are always the freshest you can get them, and I like supporting urban agriculture, especially one that centers the leadership and ownership of historically (and presently) underrepresented and under supported groups. The following list is subject to chang...

Truffle Fragrances: Do You Know of Any?

I’m usually the one making recommendations to readers; here, I ask for some we can all enjoy. Truffle has to be one of the most captivating and hard-to-describe sensations in gastronomy. Admittedly, I’ve never smelt a raw truffle of any variety (whether that be white or black). I imagine the scent of the tuber (as opposed to the taste) highlights its earthy and grassy facets. But in the mouth... Read full article: Truffle Fragrances: Do You Know of Any? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes M...

A Memory of the Trail of Rastro

The 1960s were some of the most bubbling times in terms of social change. Mass production, the onset of the cold war, the Vietnam war, the rise of the hippie movement, and sexual liberation were defining moments of this period, which were felt throughout the world. Every social change leads to new habits and new tastes. In Brazil, the process of reaching a system of democracy, economic moderniz...

ColourPop Happy Thoughts Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Happy Thoughts ColourPop Happy Thoughts Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach base with subtle, warmer rose undertones paired with lighter, more golden peach shimmer that gave it a lighter look once applied and blended out on skin. The texture felt wet to the touch, but it was smooth, emollient, and thinner (not in a bad way). The formula was cream-like initially but dried down to a powder once it came into co...

Perfumed Horoscope: August 30 - September 5

  The big question of the week is how do we relate as assertive and willful humans (Mars component) to the biodiversity and nature (Neptune component). How far-reaching is our understanding of nature? If nature makes us work harder, is it worth it to give up some of the shortcut conveniences that we are so gifted in creating? How do we learn from nature? Finally: how do we show our gratitude an... Read full article: Perfumed Horoscope: August 30 - September 5 from Fragrantica Perfumes and Col...

‘It’s all here on the water’: how Britain’s canals became home to bakers, blacksmiths and florists

Stroll down Britain’s canals these days and you’ll encounter waterside businesses of all kinds trading out of narrowboats. Here, five floating traders share their storiesWhen Stuart Fenwick first moved to London seven years ago, he spent a lot of time on foot exploring the capital’s towpaths. His wanderings prompted a recurring dream in which he ran a floristry studio aboard a narrowboat. “I’ve been working with flowers since I was 15 and I’ve always wanted a shop, but could never really afford ...

I went to the NYC restaurant that makes wings for 'Hot Ones' and now I know why celebrity guests are always complimenting them

"This is the last dab. We call it the last dab because we put a little extra on the last wing." Ben Gilbert/Insider For six years, "Hot Ones" has been hurting celebrities with hot questions and even hotter wings. Much of the time, those hot chicken wings come from the same midtown Manhattan restaurant: Shorty's. Insider visited Shorty's this week to find out what goes into a "Hot Ones" wing.

We all play the status game, but who are the real winners?

Whether we’re yam growers, tech wizards or conspiracy theorists, we’re hardwired to play the status game. But success is not always what it seemsLife is a game. To understand this is to understand why the human world can be so maddening, angry and irrational. The behaviour of racists, transphobes, conspiracy theorists, cult members, religious fundamentalists and online mobbers becomes much more explicable when you realise that humans are programmed by evolution to be obsessively interested in s...

My young son feels guilty about hurting his friend at school

Children are allowed to make mistakes – and they help us to learn, says Philippa PerryThe question A while back my son physically hurt a friend at school. He stopped when the teacher told him off. The friend has moved on, forgiven him and even invited him to his birthday party, but it is haunting my son as he still feels bad and really anxious about it.
