Jesus of Nazareth was many things to many people, but in an age of ruthless Roman rule, those in power saw his growing influence as a threat to the order of rule. "Killing Jesus" on the National Geographic Channel tells the gritty tale of politics and persecution behind the death of one of history's most important figures.

Taste is all about chemistry—the more flavor molecules ingredients have in common, the more likely they will be perceived as a delicious match. A recent study, however, indicates that Indian cuisine throws a wrench into our understanding of how food pairing works. #FutureofFood
Everything we Westerners thought we knew about flavor pairing was recently turned on its ear by a study of the delicious and contradictory jumble of sensation

Индийская кухня, базируется на Ведах, на мудрости многих веков... Здесь пища не тупо брюхо набить, а польза уму и телу, здесь... и лекарство и регулятор. Конечно, пища в трёх качествах природных, это не только образ жизни разных людей, но и философия... и смысл бытия.
