The title "Marvel With A Mango" finds it's inspiration from an episode of the British series Agatha Christie's Poirot. The episode in particular is from Season 3, Episode 9 called "The Theft of the Royal Ruby." It is based on the short story "The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding" and has Poirot trying to locate a ruby that was stolen from an Egyptian prince. As Poirot is being introduced to the Lacey family [who's house he will be staying at] there is a wonderful little scene in which Poirot demonstrates how to cut open a mango and avoid the pit inside. When he produces the cut fruit, Mr. Lacey exclaims "he's an absolute marvel with a mango!"
And so I adopted that title for my food blog as I hope to experience new food adventures that have me exclaiming 'he an absolute marvel with a beet!"
