Food Stories

Once upon a time, Calvin Coolidge noted that Christmas was neither a time nor a season. Christmas was a state of people’s minds.

This holiday goes beyond the fixed date and traditional festivities. Christmas is a feeling – a very special feeling that occurs to us only once in twelve months. But that is where the magic of Christmas lies.

Christmas celebration is one of very few things that keep happening year after year, but never turn into a routine. What is more, we all anticipate this celebration, regardless of our ages, professions, and hobbies.

On Thanksgiving Day we can celebrate what we are sincerely thankful for. And this is the best part of this national holiday. It brings families together. It brings warm memories back. It brings true gratitude into our life. At least for one day – for the fourth Thursday of November.

Sturgeon Aquafarms, which produces caviar and sturgeon meat at its farm in Bascom, Florida, suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Michael, forcing a reduction of its production of beluga caviar in advance of the 2018 holiday season.

Why do we like Labor Day? Because this holiday is always a pleasant added bonus to the first fall weekend? Yep, let’s count this idea. Why else?

Because Labor Day celebration is held all over the US to pay tribute to all working people, regardless of their professions, work experience, and spheres of activity. Right. Labor Day honors our application of knowledge and skills to the jobs we do, as well as our very desire to make a decent living.  

Due to its exceptional taste, sturgeon has long been considered an exquisite fish. A real delicacy with dense and tender meat, it was a regular star of nobles’ tables.

Today, sturgeon fish is one of the most valuable and delicious foods in the world. A separate culinary treasure, of course, is sturgeon caviar. However, its meat is also a very refined product.

It is quite an interesting fact that sturgeon is called red fish, while its meat is white. This inconsistency is a legacy of the past when the word "red" meant "beautiful" in Russian.

It looks like in the late 18th century the river of history decided to change its flow abruptly and shape a brand-new landscape of the world.

About a week ago we commemorated the bold step of our Founding Fathers. Hope you were enjoying the celebration of the 242nd anniversary of independence of the United States and having a great time together with your dearest and nearest.

Health is our most valuable wealth. And healthy food is the basis of any healthy life. On this day we want to make a healthy gourmet products overview at Marky's Gourmet Blog.

70 years ago, in 1948, the United Nations decided to attach international significance to that good old saying by initiating the formation of the World Health Organization (or WHO). It was officially established in Geneva, Switzerland, on April 7. The same day 61 countries signed the constitution of WHO, setting the main priorities and goals of its performance.

Do you also find it hard to believe that the winter is over, and that the spring is coming?

Hopefully, once we all will get used to such rapid pace of time. We’ll certainly have to, as it doesn’t look like it will ever slow down. Yet the good news is that we aren’t helpless before it – we are armed with numerous tips on time management. (Many thanks to the authors of all those bestsellers and blogs.)

Now their recommendations can help us plan our job, study or even travel. They are quite universal and prove to be really effective. But they don’t consider one very important issue – our everyday diet.

European cuisine review

Have you ever wondered what the difference of European cuisine from the culinary traditions of other nations? After all, in fact European cuisine is a collective term, as Europe is inhabited by many nations, each of which has its own cultural heritage and taste preferences. In addition, different climatic conditions are formed in each of the countries a unique set of products produced by agriculture.

But there are commonalities among the national dishes of European states, be it France, Spain or Croatia. Let's take a closer look.

Fall… Somehow it makes all of us become poets. At least for a few probably the most beautiful months of the year. But the more we think about this season and the longer we enjoy its marvelous colors and smell its inimitable aromas, the better we realize that there’ll never be enough words to say how we really feel about it.
