comment What is the name for a round flaky pastry that has a chocolate cream filling in the middle
When you say round do you mean it's circular or tubular?

comment Should I store my cheese in brine/whey?
Well, if the liquid is good enough to store the cheese at the supermarket, it is surely good enough to store it at home. As for the container, this would depend on what your packaging is like: mozzarella here usually comes in a little bag, so I would have to transfer to a new container. If yours comes in a tub, you could equally well use that. I don't know of any studies (it's not exactly life-changing science after all); my answer comes from experience.

comment Extracting colour out of strawberries
Cochineal is entirely natural and produces a vivid red. It is made from the shells of beetles.

comment Basil - to wash or not to wash? Best practices?
Well, in that case you may as well not wash it at all. Lukewarm water is a germ's best friend, so it's doubtful whether you're cleaning it much, let alone sterilising it. Besides, just because everyone at the supermarket can touch it, it doesn't mean they have.

Do you have a source for your assertion that 'the germs that cause illness don't add flavour to food'?
