It's the law

http://www.fst.rdg.ac.uk/foodlaw/index.htm

Having trouble keeping track of the shifting sands of legislation constantly being revised in the corridors of Whitehall and Brussels? Well, help is at hand.

Dr David Jukes, lecturer in food technology at Reading University and author of Food Legislation of the UK, has compiled the "Food Law Pages" Web site as a reference aid for his students, but it makes an ideal jumping-off point for anyone who needs to keep abreast of the latest legislation. As well as sections on additives, food labelling and HACCP there are special news sections covering the latest rulings in both the EU and the UK, with one-click links to the legislation itself on the Government's own Web pages.

Heavenly aroma

Glasgow-based Matthew Algie is the UK's largest independent producer of fresh roast coffee. Its "Coffee Heaven" Web site is a well-constructed shrine to the beverage with notes on the different kinds of speciality coffees, from how to pronounce their names to how to make them. If you need to know your macchiato from your ristretto, this is the place to look.

Virtual boozer

http://www.fullers.co.uk/

London brewer Fuller's has gone to town with its site by including a virtual reality tour of its flagship City pub, the Old Bank of England. Browsers armed with the ubiquitous Shockwave plug-in can take a 360º look around the interior from a position by the bar, or point to another part of the pub and be transported there with a mouse click.

This is all accompanied by a soundtrack of drinkers drinking. What it really needs is a touch and taste plug-in, but you can't have everything.
