Master Jayden

African Fried Liver
My little cute cousin, Jayden; he's is such a hunk of a kid, really I mean it, you should see the way he bites his tongue when smiling. I am begining to think he could be my son and I just don't know it(ok! am kidding about that) He has those cute bunny teeth that make him so adorable just like mine haha so anyway Jayden was once reason for family to get together. Ofcourse I can’t remember much except for the lovely cool Sunday afternoon weather and that there was lots of laughter, drinks, joking around and food that to this day I still reminisce over…all this happened more than 4 months ago.

Why glasses are shaped different...

... they serve differently.
I have not always known much about why glasses are shaped differently. I imagined I just had to pick a glass that looks good and feels right in my hands.

Then one day I just wondered if there is a wine glass and a whiskey glass, there must be more to the shape of the glass than just the looks and feel.
I mean, why does my dad insist on his whiskey glass and why are all his whiskey glasses always short.

So I decided to have a little bit of fun finding out and learning about what glassware is needed in every cabinet.
From sites like delish.com, I found these different glasses, their purposes and since to me pictures speak 000's of words I thought a picture of each glass would help us understand what the glass looks like.

I hope you enjoy realising the different glasses and their purposes. I know I had fun learning them and am still trying to master them though am sure I will never know what brandy in a brandy sniffer will ever test like ;-)
