Culinary comeback: it's time to reheat instant noodles. Chefs love them.

Culinary comeback: it's time to reheat instant noodles

Asia loves them. So why do some still think of instant noodles as the food of the desperate? In 1958 Taiwanese-Japanese businessman Momofuku Ando invented the instant noodle. He had seen the devastation and poverty created by war and wanted to make a cheap, tasty product that could feed the world. Now instant noodles are a massive business with around 100 billion bowls eaten annually. In Asia, instant noodle brands are endorsed by celebrities, plastered on billboards and served in sit-down restaurants – but in Australia they’re struggling to escape their stereotype as a sustenance-only snack for students with a philistine approach to food.

But several of Sydney top chefs aren’t shy about expressing their fondness for precooked noodle blocks. Ben Sears, chef at Korean fusion restaurant Moon Park, eats instant noodles at least once a week. Urlaub in der Natur: Camping & Campingzubehör - bei Tchibo.

The island of Papay, lying about 20 miles to the north of Kirkwall, is home to 60 archaeological sites.

The Knap o' Howar

Among these are the incredibly well-preserved remains of the earliest known dwellings in Orkney — and the oldest standing buildings in northern Europe. These structures, two oblong, stone-built houses, date from approximately 3,600 BC and were continuously occupied by a series of Neolithic farmers for at least five centuries. The buildings, on the island's west coast, were uncovered in the 1930s when severe sea erosion revealed deposits of midden material, as well as evidence of well-built, stone walls. This chance discovery led to the excavation of the site.

But the digital alarm clock that wakes us in the morning or the wristwatch that tells us we are late for supper are unnatural clocks. Our biology dances to a more ancient beat that probably started to tick early in the evolution of life. Embedded within our genes, and almost all life on Earth, are the instructions for a biological clock that marks the passage of approximately 24 hours. This "day within" regulates everything we do.

It can even influence our ability to learn and do well in exams. Biological clocks or "circadian clocks" ( circa about, diem a day) help time our sleep patterns, alertness, mood, physical strength, blood pressure and much more. In anticipation of going to bed, body temperature drops, blood pressure decreases, cognitive performance declines and tiredness increases. Few of us appreciate this internal world, however. Body clocks differ between people. Vollversion: CrazyTalk. SAVED - Ice cream maker & parlour avert closure threat - "I am just relieved and happy," says boss.

Award-winning Brymor Ice Cream was facing closure after more than 30 years following the sale of the family farm, at High Jervaulx, near Leyburn, North Yorkshire for £3.5m. However, the new owners did not wish to continue the ice cream business. Now a local entrepreneur has come forward to rescue the business - with Nicola Moore, the 23-year-old granddaughter of the Brymor founder, carrying on with the ice cream parlour which has become a major tourist attraction in the Dales. The 213 acre farm which had 100 pedigree Guernsey cows was one of the few farm makers of dairy ice cream left in Britain.
