Do you ever get stubborn crumbs all over your fingers while enjoying a bag of Doritos? You’re not alone, ‘Dorito Fingers’ is a well-known problem, and its most common solution (wiping dirty hands on various objects) often results in destruction of clothes, furniture, game controllers and even friendships. Doritos Israel solved this problem: they introduced – the Doritos TOWEL BAG! Doritos in the Netherlands: we get dirty fingers as well!
At Feva restaurant in the town of Castelfranco Veneto in northern Italy, chef Nicola Dinato has come up with a dish called Aria Fritta, or “fried air” that resembles an airy cloud and the people all over the internet are gagging for it. Check out the Facebook page for a video!
Chef Massimo Bottura has teamed up with The Dalmore to create L’Anima aged 49-year single malt scotch whisky. The whisky, created in collaboration between Bottura and The Dalmore’s Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, is called L’Anima and means ‘soul’ in Italian. It will be auctioned off by Sotheby’s and all proceeds will go to Bottura’s non-profit organisation Food For Soul.
Last week it was World Pistachio Day! A small green nut whose official day of celebration, World Pistachio Day, always falls on February 26th and is a great opportunity to remind ourselves of why we should be eating more of these tiny nutritional powerhouses.
Thanks to a new invention in the sleep arena, you may never have to fight over the temperature in the bedroom ever again.

This is a must be in our hotel rooms!
