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.

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.

According to Bannosh it contains fish bladder, one of the last things you would imagine could be included in a beer or stout. […]

Electioneering In Germany

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 7, 2013 in News & Opinion |

It’s only a few weeks until the general elections in Germany, and the themes being pulled out of the dusty closets, the dank cellars and the minds of political campaigners should know no bounds. In theory. But Germany isn’t like the United States, there isn’t quite so much of a free-for-all battle through the media, […]

Eating Disorders

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 25, 2012 in Internet |

I’m not going to criticize anyone for their eating habits. If you want to be thin as a stick and white as flour, fine by me: I think you’re a fool, but it’s fine by me. If you want to be as fat as a Zeppelin, stuff yourself with everything at the All You Can […]
