Watch out for those typos. A mistake in a recipe published in a Swedish food magazine sent four people to the hospital with nutmeg poisoning this week: "The recipe should have called for two pinches of nutmeg. Instead, the magazine went to press telling chefs to use 20 whole nutmeg nuts...In large doses, nutmeg is a mild hallucinogen." [Freakonomics]
