When Bryan Fuller decided to take on the task of bringing Hannibal to life for a television audience, he hired world-famous chef José Andrés as a culinary consultant and artist Janice Poon as a food stylist. Food stylists like Janice are everywhere - in every commercial, in every ad designed to make mouths water, there is always a food stylist behind the imagery.

Janice’s task for every episode is to not only make the food look good, but also edible and as safe as possible. "Food styling is a lot harder for a TV show when the actors will actually have to eat your food, take after take after take. It has to be edible and it has to hold under hot studio lights for hours without going bad because you never know when your scene will come up and how many takes there will be," says Poon. For example: the blood sausage pictured in one of the earlier episodes of the show is not actually blood sausage, because the real thing is incapable of sitting for hours on a television set without turning into a health hazard. "Safety issues are enforced by the unions, but the food safety laws are set out by government and are very stringent."

In Apéritif, Dr. Lecter prepares what looks like a human lung but in reality was a meat called “mortadella”, since she couldn’t use a real lung from any animal, saying “He [Mads Mikkelsen, who plays Lecter] cooks it, but he tastes it before he cooks it. Well, that’s not good, because he can’t eat raw lung, so I have to find something food safe that looks raw, that will act raw, because he is flipping it around on a cutting board.”

Janice runs a blog in which she regularly updates concerning the show. She has been reading scripts for the second season of Hannibal, and will return as a food stylist.

This legitimately upsets me.

… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
Hrm.
HRM.

A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and  throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.

Tea contains antioxidants. Antioxidants can help slow down the aging process, and help cells regenerate and repair.  Many studies suggest antioxidants also assist our bodies in preventing cancer.
Tea can lower stress hormone levels. Black tea can reduce the effects of stressful events by lowering the amount of the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
Tea fights cavities and reduces plaque. Compounds in tea are capable of killing or suppressing growth and acid production of cavity causing bacteria in our mouths.
Tea keeps you hydrated. Every cup of tea you drink, especially low or no caffeine varieties, counts as a cup of water with the added bonus of providing antioxidants as well.
Tea may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. Tea can help prevent formation of dangerous blood clots which are often the cause of strokes and heart attacks.
Tea can help lower blood pressure. Drinking green tea daily can reduce your risk of hypertension by up to 50%.
Tea aids your body in digestion. Tea has been used for thousands of years as an after-meal digestive aid.  It can also help relieve stomach cramps.
Tea may help prevent diabetes. There is some evidence to suggest that green tea might help to lower the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes.
Tea can help beat bacteria. An Egyptian study testing the effects of green tea on antibiotics found the tea to enhance the bacteria killing effects of the drugs.
Tea aids your immune defenses. A study comparing the immune activity levels of coffee drinkers vs. tea drinkers found the tea drinkers to have levels up to five times higher.
