New Delhi, Sep 18, 2017: You may get scared with the idea of making a full English breakfast meal, but it’s not that tough. Just get bacon, eggs, toasts, sautéed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and a cup of coffee or tea in place, say experts.

Ajay Chopra, Brand Ambassador, Sumeru frozen foods, and Sudhir Nair, Executive Chef, Courtyard by Marriott & Fairfield by Marriott – Outer Ring Road, Bengaluru, suggest some steps to cook English breakfast meal at your home.


  1. Cook the bacon: Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan and put the bacon strips. While the bacon is getting done, add quarter cut mushrooms marinated in salt, pepper, olive oil and thyme and put them at the side of the same pan. Cut a tomato from the centre to get two chunky halves, grill the tomatoes on the same pan. Once the fat on the bacon starts to sizzle, you know it is crispy and well done. Also, the mushrooms and tomatoes should be golden brown.
  2. Cook the sausages: Use the same pan you cooked the bacon in, for the sausages. Place the sausages on the pan and toss and turn them regularly. Keep doing this till they are nicely grilled and smoky.
  3. Fry potato wedges or hash brown potatoes: Heat enough oil for deep frying and put it on the second burner of the stove. Wait till they are golden and put it on a plate with napkin. Wait for the napkin to absorb excess oil and then transfer it to another plate.
  4. Cook the eggs: Eggs should be cooked last as the yolks should be runny and whites well cooked. Heat up a pan and put some butter in a circular motion at either side of the pan. Crack two eggs on each side. In case you don’t like your eggs runny, cook it till the yolk goes opaque, signalling that the eggs are done. You can also use the same pan in which you have cooked the bacon and sausages to get that extra smoky flavour in the eggs.
  5. Toast the bread: Put the bread in a toaster and wait till they pop up. Make sure the toasts are brown and not burnt. Keep the butter next to the toaster. Smear generously on warm toast. The sautéed mushrooms on toast can also be a very classic addition to the meal.
  6. Serve with coffee or tea: Place all the cooked ingredients on one big plate and serve hash browns/potato wedges in a bowl on the side. Serve it with a cup of your choice of beverage and your favourite English breakfast is ready within minutes. (IANS)

Bottles of Jack Daniel's whiskeys are displayed at Rossi's Deli in San Francisco

Jack Daniel's is the world's most popular whiskey brand, but until recently, few people knew the liquor was created by Nathan "Nearest" Green, an enslaved Black man who mentored Daniel.

"We've always known," says Debbie Staples, a great-great-granddaughter of Green's who heard the story from her grandmother. … "He made the whiskey, and he taught Jack Daniel. And people didn't believe it … it's hurtful. I don't know if it was because he was a Black man."

The findings from preliminary studies on possible stem cell-based Covid-19 treatments are frequently being exaggerated through press releases, social media and uncritical news media reports.

Amid the rush to find quick treatments for Covid-19 last year, the world saw a global race to find new stem cell-based treatments. Now, researchers report that such therapies were filled with violations of government regulations, inflated medical claims and distorted public communication. There are reports of patients suffering physical harm -- including blindness and death -- from unproven stem cell therapies.

"Efforts to rapidly develop therapeutic interventions should never occur at the expense of the ethical and scientific standards that are at the heart of responsible clinical research and innovation," said lead study author Laertis Ikonomou, associate professor of oral biology at University at Buffalo, New York. There are clinics offering unproven and unsafe "stem cell" therapies that promise to prevent Covid-19 by strengthening the immune system or improving overall health, the researchers noted in the paper published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
