Do you know what kissing crust is? I am sure you have eaten it. It is the part of bread where loaves touch during baking. A little soft, a little crispy. Yum.
How about Kedgere? Hindu breakfast rice. If you are traveling in England your Kedgere may contain leftover fish.
Farina Dolce? Don't use this if you have a nut allergy. It is a sweet Italian flour made from chestnuts.
What a wealth of interesting tidbits and morsels!
A foodie would enjoy reading this from cover to cover.
