A Sausage By Any Other Name

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 28, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’ve come across bureaucratic nonsense many times over the few years I have been in Europe, fortunately seldom in my own case although, well, it’s bound to happen eventually. I still recall reading of the (in)famous Welsh Dragon case: a sausage company in Wales was informed by the local council that they could no longer […]

Food: Read The Small Print

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 6, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I read the small print. Many vegetarians and vegans have learned that not reading the small print on the packaging of their food, unless they cook everything from raw, can lead to some unfortunate moments. Some people are very strict with their diet, with their refusal of each meat and meat products, with their need […]

Panic In The Aisles

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 2, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s that time of the year again and, unlike last year, that time of the year falls on a weekday. Happiness for those who can claim an extra day off from work, rather than complaining that a holiday day falls on a day which is free anyway, but mass panic when it comes to the […]

Too Much Of A Good Thing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 12, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to come to terms with those who enter into the business world and almost demand that it gives them a living. It is harder to come to terms with those who have little or no understanding of the way the consumer world – from the wholesaler right down to the customer – […]

Bacon: The Truth Can Finally Be Revealed

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 12, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I believe I have finally solved the problem of why so many people, especially when I go to buy breakfast rolls, do not know that things like ham and bacon are meat. You will undoubtedly recall my attempting to buy a cheese roll, or at least something vegetarian, and being offered ham at a certain […]

The Simplicity Of A British Breakfast

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

During the time that I was still traveling, which seems an absolute age ago now, I often came across either the English or Continental Breakfast. Mostly these were served in hotels and had such a vast difference, it was easy to see how the ‘continent’ and the ‘island’ remain separated from one another. For the […]

Watching The World Waddle By…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 15, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

A creamy cup of coffee and a half hour to kill before we meet up in town to take a look at wallpaper, paint and all those things you need when you move. And what better place to sit and enjoy a cup of milky, thick coffee than in a mall – or something which […]

Fast Food: Where’s The Hygiene Risk?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 21, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Every single day, when I go to buy my fresh bread rolls for breakfast, I see that the person serving behind the counter is wearing some form of glove. The idea is that any germs they might have on their hands is not passed on , through the food they are selling, to the customer. […]

A Sad Day For Bacon

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 26, 2015 in Internet |

Never have so many Twitter journalists – and others – worked so hard to create a catchall click-through headline. For some of them, and you can check them all out on Twitter if you feel the need, it is more clickbait than anything else. The World Health Organization has issued a warning that processed meats, […]

The Problem With Eating Out

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 17, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s one thing going to a restaurant for a special evening, it is quite another to enjoy the evening. Not that the food, if you pick the right restaurant, is going to be bad, or the lighting to low, to high or whatever, or the music too loud, but some have an open kitchen. Or, […]
