In many ways, supermarkets are civilization's greatest trick. We get made to go into a massive warehouse to buy stuff we probably don't need with crowds of other people who don't want to be there. There's a whole world out there, yet here I am, standing near a little conveyor belt, behind a bloke with 36 bread buns and 20 litres of coke. At least they have a cafe. The beacon amid all those aisles. A staple on any supermarket cafe menu is the breakfast, served all day, usually, as a good breakfast should. But which one is the best? Well, our colleagues at the Manchester Evening News found out. Let's get in amongst it. With an extra hash brown. Morrisons Food There's a surprising amount of choice when it comes to breakfast in Morrisons. Eggs benedict (£3.90), scrambled egg with pine nuts and spinach (£3.50) and even soy milk porridge with blueberry and lemon curd (£2). But no-one walks into a Morrison's cafe looking for porridge and lemon curd - we're here for the … [Read more...] about Best supermarket breakfast? We tasted and rated them all
THE debate about whether to go hair-free in your private areas has long been raging. Doctors have warned removing pubic hair can increase the risk of an STI, yet a huge percentage of women still chose to go bare down there. Is it safe to remove your pubic hair? Last year, a survey in JAMA Dermatology found that about a quarter of people who groomed their pubic hair by shaving, waxing or using scissors had experienced injuries. The most common accidents were cuts, followed by rashes or burns. Researchers also found that 1.5 per cent of groomers have sustained injuries that required medical attention. The study was carried out by Dr Benjamin Brever, a urologist at the University of California San Franciso. He found that 3 per cent of the adults who came to Accident and Emergency department at the university’s hospital had grooming injuries, according to Time. Should you shave or wax it off? Dr Brever launched the survey to try and determine which method of hair removal was the … [Read more...] about Is it safe to remove your pubic hair? Is it hygienic and is it best to shave it off?
Prosecco, to speak plainly, is a simple, refreshing party pop. It’s fun and frivolous, no more, no less. I like it (and I love visiting the beautiful green hills north of Venice where the best is made), but you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the only Italian sparkler. There are plenty of others to discover. If you enjoy prosecco, it’s a safe bet you’ll like pignoletto. This ancient grape from Emilia Romagna is being used to make youthful, easy-going fizz in a similar style – Chiarli Vecchia Modena Pignoletto NV (Waitrose, £9.99) is particularly fruity and juicy, though you might, as I do, prefer the drier version below. If you’re a champagne lover, try Italy’s answer: Franciacorta. The fizz...

This International Women’s Day we’re raising a glass to the fantastic female wine producers around the world. For a long time, the wine business has been heavily dominated by men, but over the years this has slowly started to change, with many women smashing the glass ceiling, and no doubt a few bottles along the way. Like any industry, this diversification has led to new ways of working, and the wines we get to enjoy today are all the better for it. In fact there is evidence to say that women’s taste buds are better able to detect bitter notes, which could result in a more elegant blend. Of course, that’s not to say any woman could make wines with such finesse – many of these inspirational women are highly skilled in a number of fields, juggling various careers (not to mention families) with their passion for wine. One thing that unites them all though is that they are paving the way for the next generation. If you’re looking to learn more … [Read more...] about 8 best wines by female producers
