Since the time I can remember, visiting the wine producing regions of France & Napa have been one of the biggest dreams of mine. Thankfully, one of them has been realized, and I am so fortunate to be living within driving distance of the fabulous Napa & Sonoma wine country. The other part of this dream will be possible soon enough I hope. In the meantime, I am pleased to share this wonderful infographic of the French wine production by regions, their major varietals & aromas. There is a lot of information compressed into a small space, so please enlarge the graphic and study closely. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. 
Displayed below are some the popular cocktails that you can make with beer and their recipes.
There are some who will pay any amount, do any thing that they believe will set them apart from the rest. Palatial homes, showy cars, extravagant weddings, over the top jewellery, etc. But imagine paying hundreds, even thousands of dollars for a meal, something that will only last as long as your appetite? Below is an infographic of the World’s Top 10 Most Expensive Dishes. I really hope the meal was worth the price tag. 
What is beer called in your language? 
Interesting to note that, the 6th most spoken language in the world, Bengali, has nearly 181 million native speakers, but no official word for beer. 
Ice cream I believe is one of the few universally beloved desserts. Summer is round the corner and time has come to relish some of the great flavors I have been waiting for. In pursuit of great tasting ice cream, I found this great infographic about what our favorite ice-cream says about our personalities. Check it out & let me know what you think? Do you agree with what the research says? 
"Viral marketing is an idea that spreads--and an idea that while it is spreading actually helps market your business or cause"
Seth Godin

The key to effective viral: Create and execute an idea that's intriguing enough to get consumers to interact. 
Theresa Howard, USA TODAY

To get the most out of social media, you need to understand how it works. Just plugging stuff or posting them online, however good is not going to help. You might be the best Chef and might have a poster made claiming that but do you think that it will help? NO, of course not. You have to be able to make sure that people see your work & know what you can create. 
I will follow up more on viral marketing later, but I have posted some great books about viral marketing in the resources section which you can refer to.
With the way kids are drawn to junk & often unhealthy foods such as soda, chips, candy, etc. one would think that there is no hope and the obesity epidemic might continue to grow. Well, from interactions with my son, I can say that there is still hope. all is not lost. Kids are more open to healthy eating than you might think. They look to us, the adults, to learn healthy eating habits. That's great news because as the below posted infographic shows, there is new statistics which show that parents are becoming more involved and better role models when it comes to nutrition. Restaurants are still far behind the curve but parents expect them to adapt as well.
