The Burning Question*: Should you heat up plates before dinner?

Let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, everything hurts and the whole week looms ahead.

So do like we do here inTheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: We can imagine that this is good kitchen etiquette, but we’re still not convinced it makes that much of a difference: warm up your dinner plates before plonking the food on them.
