Not only does Davie play Flea’s unmistakable bass-lines with the slap of one pepper, but he supplies percussion and other sound effects with another. Check it out.
Cancel those non-pork-related summer plans and head to Bacon Camp.
Although it’s more of a 5-day food festival than an actual sleepaway camp, participants can purchase tickets to specific bacon-related events. These events will take place throughout the Ann Arbor, Michigan area — including instructional seminars hosted by renowned chefs, a film-fest, bacon open-mic night, and a tour of the Detroit food scene.
Tickets are still available for some events. No sleeping bag or postcards for mom required.
By most accounts, avocado prices are skyrocketing. Therefore, we should immediately start hollowing out that annoying fruit part and fill it with a latte.
The Avolatte has been exposed to the world by Truman Cafe in Melbourne, Australia. Although, the Avolatte appears to have been a one-time joke, these will certainly begin popping up in neighborhoods with a large handlebar mustache and fixie bicycle population. Keep an eye out for them, so you can enjoy one before they’re cool.
MREs (meals ready to eat) are designed to be quick and convenient, without much care for actual cooking and plating. Chef Chuck George partnered with videographer Jimmy Pham and Henry Hargreaves, to change the way we look at these military meals.
Titled MRE, the project takes these various foods, often texturally-challenged and monochromatic, and plates them to appear like gourmet meals. Although we probably won’t see servicemen actually wanting to plate their food like a gourmand — it does make you wonder if MREs suddenly become more palatable if presented outside of their plastic bags and tin cans. See the work in progress below.
‘We wanted to see how different Armies go about feeding their troops. You can tell a lot about how valued someone is by the food they are given. In respect to servicemen and woman across the globe we wanted to take these meals and elevate them to Michelin Star quality meals. In essence taking some of the most unappetizing food, thats given to the bravest people and making it look fit for the nation’s leader.’
Just in case you’re sick of unicorn everything, black lattes are here to cast a shadow on that tired food trend. Charcoal lattes, as they’re known, have actually been around for a while and used for detox purposes.
They’ve gained popularity lately — perhaps just in time to help desaturate our Instagram feeds, and rid us of pink and sprinkles on everything.
