Fizzy Drinks Evoke Obesity?

Over 34 billion gallons of soft drinks are sold throughout the world each year. With the popularity of the soft drinks industry comes many questions regarding their effect on our health. Many people suffer from obesity because of soft drink consumption. With many of us treating soda as the main liquid in our diets, it often replaces water consumption. Of course, another major issue from these acidic and sugary drinks is tooth wear and rotting. Today we are going to discuss the health and nutrition issues that stem from soft drink consumption and try to understand further if fizzy drinks evoke obesity?


Black Pepper And Anise Spiced Steak Tartare

Hand-chop beef and serve it up with an array of traditional goodies like capers, chives, shallots, and a runny egg yolk. But don’t stop there. Beef tartare can really be anything you want—that’s why it’s so amazing.

Here is a steak tartare recipe from from the chefs team at Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant.


  • 100 g beef fillet, finely chopped
  • 1 gherkin, finely chopped
  • 10 capers, rinsed and drained, finely chopped
  • 1 Small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ml Dijon mustard
  • 5 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 3 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 g Salt
  • 2 g Black pepper, freshly cracked
  • 1 g Aniseed, toasted
  • 1 free-range egg yolk


  1. Place the chopped beef, gherkins, capers and onion into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well.
  3. To serve, spoon tartare onto a plate and place the raw egg yolk on top, season the yolk with salt and some black pepper. Serve with toasted sourdough and some mustard cress.
  4. Enjoy this dish with the 2017 Pierneef Syrah Viognier. Despite the wine’s elegant character, the spicy notes of the Syrah and the liveliness of the Viognier complement the intricate flavours of the tartare.
