The Old English word pygg referred to a type of clay used for making all kinds of household objects, including pots for storing money.

The Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500BC

SPAM gets its name from 'spiced ham'.

For a too-salty ham, partially bake it and drain all the juices. Pour a small bottle of ginger ale over it and let it bake until done.

Hi Martin and Nicola,

From everybody at Action Against Hunger I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say a huge THANK YOU for your sponsorship support at the festive edition of Taste of London! We really appreciate you working with us, and hope you were able to enjoy the comp tickets for Thursday and Sunday that we sent through, and come by the restaurant to see your support in action. Hopefully you got to try a doughnut or two as well!

We are still waiting to find out exactly how much money we raised at the festival, but even without Sunday’s food sales being taken into account the figure is already over £16,500 which is absolutely fantastic!

Without the support of companies such as yourselves we would not be able to run events like this, so we are incredibly grateful for the support that you have provided. From all of us here at Action Against Hunger, a huge thank you for your help in making the festive edition of Taste of London such a success. As soon as we have a final figure for money raised I will be sure to let you know.

Thank you once again, and all the very best,

Fiona and the rest of the Action Against Hunger team.

Fiona Layfield

Events Officer,

Cows were first domesticated for beef in the regions of Greece and Turkey about 4,000 years ago.

To get the same amount of zinc found in 3 oz. of beef, you would have to consume five 8 oz. glasses of milk and three 4 oz. cans of tuna.
