When you hear the words “goose liver”, not too many pleasant images come to mind, and I highly doubt the picture above is one of them.   The beauty of plating food is that you can make art out of food, and yes, the photo above is actually goose liver.  I was attempting to plate some ground lamb, rice, and zucchini, recently, and I considered the difficulty involved with making food look as beautiful as it can for the people who will be eating it.  EliteTraveler has compiled a photo gallery of 10 of what they consider the most beautiful plates in the world.  Check the method.

How To Talk Dirty.


During an interesting conversation with one of my best friends about women who’s second language is English, we somehow awkwardly stumbled into discussing the concept of talking dirty.  When speaking a language thats not your primary one, ‘talking dirty’ can go awry, but even if your English is perfect and things goes wrong, it can be very awkward.  (or incredibly funny).  It so happens that a few hours after said conversation, my homegirl sent me this instructional video to show people about just how to talk dirty.
