Apparently one of these food geeks is a also a fly fishing nut. “To make a pancake you need to know how to crack an egg. Enter Glasgow University’s Poultry Research Unit. Researchers found a palette knife is ideal, combined with a fly-fishing action and 30 Newtons of force.” Kate Youde in the U.K.’s Independent.
