Stachybotrys chartarum, aka black mould, is one of the nastiest guests you can find in your home. The microfungus grows inside damp buildings and produces toxic spores. Its presence in your home can affect your health and expose you to greater risks of suffering from respiratory problems, allergies or even immune system disorders.
The problem seems to be particularly common in London rented accommodations. Landlords are either too stingy or too sloppy to take the necessary measures to limit the moisture in the air. When they are not just plain greedy and let the flats deliberately rot so that tenants will move out and the property owner can renovate the building and turn it into lucrative Airbnb accommodations.

Urbain Dubois (1818-1901) was a French chef, an innovator of the art of the cuisine and a prolific author.
During his life, he authored a series of book on the cookery containing descriptions and recipes and featuring a very rich apparatus of illustrated plates depicting types of food, utensils, stoves, kitchenware, etc. In this way, the work, from its utilitarian nature, turns into a very serious encyclopedic survey on the culture, the technique, the machinery and the architecture of cooking.
