This Italian hard cheese is well-known around the world as the “King of Cheeses”, yet it is not the best-selling cheese in the world!  

Originated in the English village of Cheddar, this cheese is the most popular cheese in the UK!

Though known as one of the world’s most popular cheeses, this Netherland’s cheese is not the best-selling one.

Despite the popular belief, mice don’t like cheese! Given a choice, they would go for sweets or carbs! They would still eat cheese of course but it does not necessarily mean they love it. 

Yes, the holes in the cheese are actually caused by the bacteria that turn milk into cheese. One of the bacteria, namely P. Shermani, releases carbon dioxide and forms bubbles in the cheese. These little air pockets cause holes of the cheese. 

Temperature is of utmost importance in making cheese, however, it is not the main reason that causes holes in the cheese! 

Maturing time is one of the key factors in making cheese, however, it is not the reason you are looking for!

The Mouth-Watering Facts About Burgers That Might Surprise You!

Hamburger (or burger for short) has made its way to be one of the most loveable and crowd-pleasing foods worldwide. However, did you ever question where it actually comes from or what leads to the prominence of this delight? Check out the answers and other mouth-watering facts right here!  

1. Hamburger is created in Hamburg, Germany?

There is a myth that the first hamburger was originated from Hamburg and that is where it got its name from. If you believe so, this following fact might surprise you! Though the inspiration for the hamburger and its name did come from Hamburg, the burger itself was invented much later! In the 19th century, Hamburg was renowned for their beef which was commonly chopped, seasoned and molded into patties. It was the European immigrants that brought these sumptuous beef patties to America and made them popular street food. As forks and knives were not provided to eat the Hamburg steak, people had come up with the ideas of putting them in sandwiches and that’s how our beloved hamburger was claimed to be invented!

 

2/ How Hamburger Became Popular?

Although the burger was a hit after its invention, it was not until the early 20th century that this delight became phenomenal around the globe! At that time, meat was increasingly in great demand and people were interested in creating an efficient assembly line process that can help to refrigerate meat and produce hamburgers quicker. The birth of “fast food” became popular in the 1920s in the Midwest, America. However, only until the 1940s, Richard and Maurice McDonald came up with the drive-through concept and a more speedy process – a breakthrough in the history of the hamburger! With the idea of making McDonald a franchise, burgers have since weaved the way through every corner around the world, becoming one of the most successful stories of the fast food industry!

 

3/ Interesting Variations Around The World

We could hardly deny that the international presence of burgers is thanks to the effect of fast food chains, however, it is also because of the ability to adapt and various unique creations that make burgers accepted and well-loved in different regions and countries. Come to Japan or East Asia and you will find the rice burger of which its buns were substituted by compressed rice cakes. Head to Mexico and you can excite your palate with jalapeños and avocado slices packed in the middle of the burgers. And in India, vegetarian and chicken burgers are ubiquitous! Black burgers using activated charcoal or gourmet burgers featuring premium items like Lobsters, Foie Gras, Wagyu Beef and so on are also making waves!

Click to view TABLEAPP Weekly Read - A Simple Guide to Oyster

It is not uncommon to see a restaurant serving oyster but how much do we actually know about them? Today, we are going to explore the different types of oysters and how to eat them. Do not worry this is nothing overwhelming and just perfect for beginners.

Common Types Of Oysters Served in Restaurants

For your information, there are actually hundreds varieties of oysters yet it all comes down to a total of only 5 species of oysters. They are namely Crassostrea gigas, Crassostrea sikamea, Crassostrea virginicas, Ostrea edulis and Ostrea lurida. To put it in lay man’s term, they are Pacific oysters, Kumamoto oysters, Atlantic oysters, European flats and Olympia oysters.

Oyster farm in which oysters are bred and raised.

1. Pacific Oysters

Pacific oyster or Japanese oyster (Magallana gigas) are oysters native to the Pacific coast of Asia. They tend to be meatier and creamier in which the more popular types include Kusshi and Marin Miyagi.

2. Kumamoto Oysters

Kumamoto oysters are usually deep-cupped with smaller meats inside. Although it is smaller in size, they are a favorite for both new oyster eaters and connoisseurs. It is also known as the ‘Chardonnay of oysters’ due to its fruity flavours with a hint of brininess.

3. Atlantic Oysters

Atlantic oysters (aka great American oyster) are usually a lot bigger and they are most commonly found in North America. In terms of taste, they come with a slight metallic finish and because of that it is not recommended to beginners.

4. European Flats

As the name suggests, the European Flat oysters are native to Europe. These European countries include England, Denmark, Nether­lands and many others along the western and southern coasts of Europe. They are usually larger in size compared to other types with a rich and extremely flavourful taste recommended only to true oyster lovers.

5. Olympia Oysters

Last but not least, the Olympia oysters which are just bouncing back from being almost extinct. As a matter of fact, they were wiped out and for many years thought to be extinct. With that being said, they are the least common type of oyster found in this day and age.

Here is a fun fact: Oysters get their flavours from their environments. Meaning the same species of oysters in another region of the world may have a different taste when eaten.

How To Eat Oysters

Oysters are usually served with a slices on lemon on the side.

Now the interesting part, eating oysters! For a start, you would want to eat the oysters naked with no sauce added. This way you can truly taste the region or seawater of where the oyster is from. Moving on, you can gradually experiment by adding some lemon, cocktail sauce, vinaigrette or horseradish to find what best suits your taste buds.

All in all, the general rule of thumb here is to never over sauce the oysters as it will mask its natural taste. The tip here is to add just enough sauce and chew it twice to release the flavours within before swallowing whole.

The key is to never over sauce the oyster!

To make it simple, here is a step-by-step on how to eat an oyster:

1. Use the fork to release the oyster from its shell.

2. Add your preferred sauce or simply have it naked.

3. Using the shell as a spoon slide the oyster into your mouth.

4. Chew it twice to release the flavours within then swallow whole.

5. Repeat.

Nian Gao – a glutinous rice-based cake, is an all-time-favorite treat that you might find year around. However, your year will be even more fulfilled if you can savor this sweet delight during the lunar new year! As a homonym for “higher year”, relishing a Nian Gao means you will raise yourself in status (higher income or position) for the next year to come!

 

4/ Chang Shou Mian (Long-life noodles)

As the name suggested, the longer the noodle is, the longer (and healthier) your life is. This longevity noodles are not only commonly-presented during Chinese New Year but also in birthday as a wish for a long, happy and healthy life. How to enjoy this Chang Shou Mian to its best? Simply fried the noodles with oyster sauce, mushrooms and bok choy or eat with a delicate broth slightly seasoned with soy and ginger.


5/ Jiao Zi (Dumplings)

Although dumplings have become popular in daily life, this delicacy is still one of the dishes that is much-loved during lunar new year. Dumplings (usually made with soy-ginger cabbage and pork filling) resemble money, hence it’s a perfect delight for a good wealth in the year to come.  In Malaysia, along with jiao zi, “tang yuan” or sweet glutinous rice balls is also a popular specialty that is eaten during this time as it sounds like “reunion”.

Using chopsticks to eat sushi is not a must. Don’t use the chopsticks to cut the sushi, finish all one bite as you might mess up the plate.
