Bisque was originally a term used for soups made with game birds. Since the 17th century, though, it has been used to refer to any soup made from shellfish (lobster, crab, or prawns) where the meat is made into a broth then sautéed with onions, carrots, celery and spices and thickened with rice or cream. The whole is blended until it achieves a flawlessly creamy consistency. These days, any creamy, blended soup is called a bisque; hence, celery bisque is just as likely to be on the menu as the more famous lobster bisque.…

Beavers use castoreum to mark their territory; apparently, it smells quite nice with a musky aroma and has been used in fragrances for some time. It has also been used in foods, mainly because it can enhance vanilla, raspberry and strawberry flavours. Although it hails…

ADAM GUTHRIE Adam is a vegan whose passion for food began with a life-threatening illness and continues today in a lifestyle built around healthy cooking and eating. A qualified chef and wellness coach who specialises in a wholefood, plant-based diet, Adam is a passionate advocate for living a simple, healthy and environmentally friendly life. His story begins with a rude awakening when, as an out-of-balance and overweight 39-year-old, he found himself in hospital after an early-morning surf. He discovered he’d had a heart attack and was told by his cardiologist that he would be on daily medications for the rest of his life. Adam didn’t accept that his cardiologist’s “solution” of daily medication was the only way of minimising his risk of another heart attack. Instead, he decided he would do everything in his…
