Truffle oil have nothing to do with truffles, it is made by a synthetic aroma component of truffles.

comment homemade pizza - getting the dough crispy
A cast iron frying pan or griddle also works, even though they can be a bit more troublesome to use, but they are often much cheaper and more readily available

comment Is there an official comprehensive list of E-numbers?
As Jefromi says, docs are official in different juristictions, I suggest to look at the wikipedia pages notes, a quick check gave me this that looks quite good and comprehencive (but to many for me to check..), but if you want US official you might have to find another link.

comment Would brining help the texture/flavor of ribs?
@SAJ14SAJ ok, not 100% convinced, but very interesting and will research more, the second part of the link I gave Brines penetrate during low temp cooking might explain why my brining work and does give taste difference inside the meat, since I do low temp cooking (sous vide) after the brining, thanks!

comment Would brining help the texture/flavor of ribs?
Agree to most of the above but "Any flavors that penetrate the meat due so at a pace of about 2-3 millimeters per day," is not true, see here which I think is a reasonably trustworthy source, it says 17mm penetration per 24h, so if you have time brine does penetrate, I use this with liquid smoke brine (I have no access to a smoker) and it does work, but needs time. Maybe the size of the flavor molecules does matter, not sure.

comment Why do Duck eggs have longer expiry than Chicken Eggs?
Interesting, from internet , chicken eggs hatch in 21 days, duck eggs in 28 (Muscovy 35), quail eggs 23 days, goose 25-27, Ostrich 40-43, but remember eggs are often washed which reduces the shelf life.
