ABC Wed: Zamioculcas zamiifolia. and zabaglione

Just thought I will feature two unfamiliar Z words which I have been encountering, but I don't have  photos for them.


Known to be a plant that will make you prosperous. However, it has a bad name. It is rumoured to cause cancer .Zamioculcas (Common name "Zanzibar Gem") is a genus of flowering plant in the family Araceae, containing the single species Zamioculcas zamiifolia.

zabaglione I watch the making of this at cooking shows, I don't have a photo for you. It is part of a Semifreddo

One of Italy's great gifts to the rest of the world, zabaglione, is an ethereal dessert made by whisking together egg yolks, wine - traditionally marsala but champagne or wine is often used for a savoury version - and sugar.

Finally, a word I have learned from when I was six years old: In Singapore Zoo,  a surprise not to see animals in this section.
