The ’London Pizza Run’ combines a race with pizza breaks
An event inspired by NYC’s famous Pizza Run is coming to London. With its mix of carbs, protein, and cheese, pizza really is the original health food. That must be why New York City’s Pizza Run, a 5k race where participants must consume a slice of pizza each lap – is such a sensation. It will take place on May 20 2018 but the exact location is still unknown.
Beer expert Anikó Lehtinen about the art of matching beer with desserts
Interesting interview with beer expert Anikó Lehtinen at the website of Fine Dining Lovers about matching beer with desserts. Just think of how surprised your guests will be if you serve them beer with dessert instead of sweet wine. She even gives some examples like: “Cheesecake pairs well with different Lambic beers from breweries such as Cantillon and Lindemans. With chocolate desserts like fondant or brownies, you should try a full-bodied and slightly toasty Imperial Stout.”

LOLISTRAW is designed to disappear or as their hashtag says: #Eatyourstraw. The product is made out of a seaweed-based substance and available in five flavours.
