…för matnördar: The Devil’s Food Dictionary.  Vanvördig och rolig parodi på ett matlexikon, som tyvärr bara uppdateras två gånger i veckan. Dock finns ett stort och skojigt arkiv att ösa ur.

Ett litet exempel:

ragù:  A thick pasta sauce containing ground meat. The tomato-heavy version known as “Bolognese” is the world’s most popular pasta sauce and perhaps Italy’s chief export. At one time an elaborate network of pipelines carried Bolognese sauce directly from the Emilia-Romagna region to nearly every European country. But the system was dismantled in 1983, after a leak in northern Germany destroyed thousands of hectares of sensitive wetlands. Subsequent legislation mandated that all Bolognese sauce be biodegradable.
