There are a few things I know: birds are dinosaurs, the perfect amount of humidity actually makes my hair look better, and cheesy pasta does not, under any circumstances, lead to good sex.
Potlucks are dumb and bad.
A lot of people say that chicken is a good meat, but they are wrong. It is a bad meat.
In October 2015, I attended the 2015 Gluten-Free and Allergen Friendly Expo in New Jersey on assignment. I wrote an article for Jezebel that poked fun at the food, the attendees, and the entire concept of gluten intolerance, which I perceived largely as a trendy symptom of privileged white hysteria. But the joke was…
Stranger Things has inspired a wave of nostalgic ’80s cravings, including demand for a pudding featured prominently in the cult Netflix series.
People become vegans for all sorts of reasons, but they can probably stop saying they are because it’s the best thing for the earth. In the many variables of dairy/meat/vegetable diets, when it comes to sustainability, veganism is only around the middle of the pack.
PHILADELPHIA—What is more American than eating a weiner with ketchup? Other than becoming intimate with a Founding Father, nothing.
The concourse at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center is filled with all sorts of chicken sandwiches, some of them vaguely pleasant, others pleasantly vague. But which of these breaded breasts allegedly sickened a New York Times reporter in town for the DNC?
Early Monday afternoon I read an article with a headline that reads “First poo-themed dessert café set to open in Canada.” The Independent’s use of “first” sort of implies that Canadians are all breathing a sigh of relief that it finally exists, but did any of them actually ask for this? Are “poo-themed dessert cafes”…
In Manchester, England, an elderly woman batted away a mugger with her groceries, namely a particularly hardcore packet of bacon.
Imagine if an ostensibly human individual walked up to you and requested a recipe for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You’d be all, “Hey, are you new to Earth? Everything you need is literally right there in the title. It’s a sandwich, so, bread. And the other nouns you just articulated are all you need!”
Riley Curry’s mom Ayesha Curry is joining the ranks of food delivery startups and launching her own meal service, continuing her track toward becoming the NBA’s Martha Stewart.
The artisanal mayonnaise store featured last year in a SNL sketch about gentrification can, oddly, no longer afford its Brooklyn location because rent is too high. Unfortunately, the well-off residents in the area who enjoy artisanal mayo will have to find another mayo joint to hang ’round.
For a limited time, a select few McDonald’s locations will test a dish called “Gilroy Garlic Fries”—fries that are tossed with garlic, olive oil, parmesan cheese, and salt. Fun fact: my number one turn-on is having those ingredients whispered in my ear.
When you aren’t giving a stump speech, the campaign trail is a chance to prove you’re a nice, fun-loving American who likes things that nice, fun-loving Americans like. Repellant also-ran Ted Cruz’s target demographic involves impressing people who love to pray, shoot, and, importantly, eat.
The owners of a vegan mini-empire in Los Angeles are facing outrage and protests over news that they’ve been raising and slaughtering animals at their Northern California farm. Matthew and Terces Engelhart, who run the Cafe Gratitude chain, say they’ve received death threats over their private meat-eating.
Actor and eater Zac Efron is hosting an upcoming MTV special about millennials and food. But really it’s about much more than that.
Do we need Grant Achatz to be featured in yet another doc series? Are there still a bunch of men and just a couple women? Will any of the chefs get anywhere close to the insanity that is Francis Mallmann—even this dude who is “a hunter, an angler and knows the jungle” and likes to hang out on the ice in a speedo? Who…
I cannot recall ever watching a single episode of 7th Heaven in its entirety, although the show ran for 11 seasons. What do I know about Jessica Biel?
Who among us can say what a bay leaf tastes like? Not me, although I dutifully throw a leaf or two into a braise whenever the recipe dictates, and to consistently mysterious effect. Kelly Conaboy, formerly of Gawker, writing at the Awl, suggests that this is not due to the bay leaf’s gustatory subtlety being beyond…
