Welcome to the first edition of ‘something to think about’. If you like random quirky facts and interesting things then you are most certainly in the right place. Each week I will introduce you to a new fun fact which I’m happy to discuss with you.
Most of us enjoy a big plate of spaghetti, I know I do. Spaghetti is one of those weird things that I cannot guess the volume of. If I’m cooking spaghetti there is either barely enough for myself and my partner or there is enough for us and 37 friends! How about you? Are you a spaghetti volume genius or do you fail hard, like me?
Did you know that spaghetti is actually a plural? The correct term for a single strand of spaghetti is spaghetto. I have several issues with this, firstly, who has a single strand of spaghetti? No-one, that’s who! And secondly no recipe requires you to have 134 strands of spaghetti and not a single spaghetto more! (Although I kind of want that to be a thing!)
So there you go, now you know the singular term for spaghetti.
Have fun, learn loads!
