Play With Your Food: Daikon Radish Sculptures by Masanori Kono was the inspiration for this post. It made me contemplate some of my most plaguing food questions. The type of stuff that renders me speechless in conversation amongst friends and sleepless at night. Why don’t I know the answers to these questions?

What the hell is a caper?

The difference between a chile and a pepper? Is there a difference? Peppers can be sweet or hot and chiles are hot. Here is a guide.

Is rhubarb a fruit or vegetable? Rhubarb is botanically a vegetable even though we make pies, crisps and even rhubarb wine out of the said vegetable.

Do pineapples grow on trees? That would be dangerous fortunately they do not.

Fruits vs. berries. What’s the difference? Just In: Strawberries Are Not Really Berries, Yet Avocado and Watermelon Are.

On to some of my near and dear favorites

Chocolate is made from a cocoa bean, which is a legume and fermented (therefore it is good for me:)

What about those cool foam pictures on top of my latte?  I love those!
