Detox-Juices_cDetoxifying may be a trendy 'buzz' word, but it isn't a new concept. People have been cleansing their bodies since biblical times, often for religious reasons and to help concentrate the mind. During the twentieth century detoxification programmes have become an established treatment in addiction centres, to assist in weaning people off alcohol and drugs. Put in this context, it all sounds rather serious, but in fact detoxing is a simple and natural process that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Detoxing with fresh fruit and vegetable juices rests and rejuvenates the parts you don't normally reach - or even think about!

eggs_cThe experts tell us that wine and egg dishes do not go well together; so if you wish to be a fairly high-flown gastronomic expert, you will be correct in omitting any wine with the above dish. Conversely the average Frenchman will eat an omelette with a crust of bread and wash both down with copious draughts of well chilled vin rose. Therefore, on a less hairsplitting level and if serving Tchina as an hors d'oeuvre, you can start with this very humble wine and drink it throughout the meal thereafter, or follow it with more serious table wines to suit subsequent courses.

beer_cThe primary ingredient of beer is malted barley. Barley for English brewing is traditionally a specially selected variety of English two-rowed barley. English brewing barley is usually specially grown, because it is important that brewing barley should have a low protein content.
