One of my oldest friends, who made his millions in the dot-com boom, bought me a couple of fantastic presents for my recent birthday. He was also responsible for the one present that brought the biggest laughs. Thanks Nic.

Now for something completely different

Please excuse this brief interlude, but I defy you not to have at least one goose-bump in the next 4 minutes 9 seconds. For purists, the video has nothing to do with food, other than the fact it oozes cheese and schmaltz and is all the better for it.

Feed me Bubbe

If you have heard of the mythical Jewish grandma but don't get what all the hype is about, watch Feed me Bubbe and all will be clear.

I am not sure whether this is some sort of viral campaign or not (no idea what for) but it is very funny.

The question yet to be answered is who is the star of the show?  Bubbe or her schmendrick grandson who introduces each video.

The Cinnabon itself is something of a modern marvel of mankind. Hardly anything that came out of the Earth finds itself present.

One thing the Cinnabon is is delicious. Who can resist the warm semenlike sauce, running down the chins of patrons like a confectioner's bukkake party?

Gefilte fish alert

I always knew there must be a reason that traditional Jewish recipes require fish to be cooked within an inch of its life.  I now know what that reason is.

And there was I thinking that "Jewish housewives' disease" was an entirely different kettle of fish.

A chilly view

I often have a yearning to take a peek inside other people's fridges but they don't always react well to my snooping.

Thanks to Panorama Frigo, I have the opportunity to do it from the comfort of my desk without anyone taking offence.

Probably the funniest take-away menu in the world.  Make sure your volume is turned up high.
