The Nelly Boum Show: Flour ‐ Worldwide FM

The Nelly Boum Show: Flour


Tune in for the Nelly Boum Show presented by award winning director and experience designer Nelly Ben Hayoun.

Every month, the Nelly Boum Show unravels a theme and explores it in a multiverse of possible new futures- we listen and discuss the economy, politics, and other systems as we know it through music. Along the way, interviewees share their methods, and models and how they got to do what they are doing. Led by the founder of the University of the Underground, boxer and SETI (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and NASA International Space orchestra director Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian; the show is a plethora of unique talents and pluralistic thinkers.

ITS MARCH, MEANING ITS INTERNATIONAL FLOUR MONTH! It’s time to recognise the versatility and explosive quality of this ground staple kitchen item. Did you know there are nine different types of wheat flour: cake flour, pastry flour, plain or all-purpose flour, bread flour, hard flour, gluten flour, unbleached flour and self-raising flour. The English word “flour” is originally a variant of the word “”flower’ and both words derive from the Old French fleur or flour, which had the literal meaning “blossom”, and a figurative meaning “the finest”. The phrase “fleur de farine” meant “the finest part of the meal”, since flour resulted from the elimination of coarse and unwanted matter from the grain during milling.
