It’s a technique that’s used around the world to show off the meals available in restaurants, but artists at a small factory in Japan are absolute masters at making the plastic demo meals look almost more delicious than the real thing. It’s definitely better than looking at faded photos in a printed menu, that’s for…
Hong Kong bartender Rajendra Limbu is bringing the intoxicating effects of high art to the more pedestrian world of alcohol with cocktails that take influence from Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, and Piet Mondrian.
I had to make a tough call the other day when serving drinks on a cold November evening. Every cocktail I considered was fruity and frivolous—not appropriate for dinner guests huddling in depressing post-time-change darkness. Then I remembered: Liquid antibiotics.
Gmail’s Undo Send feature gives users of Google’s free email service up to 30 seconds to change their mind on a sent email before it leaves their outbox. But a new Chrome extension called Dmail lets you send messages with a self-destruct timer—or the ability to remotely delete them whenever you want.
Watch. Drool. Go eat your grub. That's all.
Shake Shack, very probably the world's best burger chain, is introducing a new burger to their vaunted lineup: the ShackMeister Burger. It's a 100% all-natural Angus beef cheeseburger that is topped with crispy marinated shallots and their famous ShackSauce. It's like a cheeseburger with fancy onion rings in it. I'm…
Jamie Oliver's burger is insane in many ways. First its name: Insanity Burger. Then the picture, I started dribbling from the moment I saw the thumbnail. And finally because the way it's cooked. I couldn't describe it better than the guys at Serious Eats:
The Basque Country is the culinary center of the world. Not only for its many gastronomical temples—like Martín Berasategui, Arzak, Zuberoa, or Azurmendi—but for the infinite amount of places where they prepare amazing plates—and pintxos. The Inglorious Basque-ard Burger is Pornburger's homage to the latter.
If you have a tongue equipped with moderately functional taste buds and can put aside regional allegiances, you'd know that Shake Shack is very probably the world's best burger chain. And to celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Shake Shack got the best chefs in the world to create a special burger for them. I'll trade…
Were you expecting to see a Michelin Star restaurant? Something like Per Se? Certainly a restaurant where fine dining doesn't even begin to describe the orgasmic experience, right? Like Alinea? Nope. Those excellent restaurants—and others of their kind—are not the best restaurant in the USA according to Yelp. That…
The cured pork meat and fat sausages above—a type of thin salchichón called fuet in Catalonia, Spain—are truly delicious, with a wonderfully intense umami flavor. They are also excellent for your health, as good as having a yogurt, because they are full of probiotics. Oh, they are also made with poop. Baby poop.
Why pay $5 for a tiny bag of beef jerky that's been sitting on that gas station shelf since the Carter administration? Just because it looks like leather doesn't mean it has to taste like it. Instead, make your own delectable dried-out meats using nothing more than an oven.
In the wake of Yahoo's $1.1 billion acquisition of beloved social platform Tumblr, it's perhaps worth looking back what the company did after it caught—and gutted—another big fish.
After being strapped onto the front of a 15-story controlled explosion and launched clear out of the atmosphere to live in an experimental laboratory orbiting around the Earth at thousands of miles an hour, the least NASA can do is give you a good meal.
Bourbon and rye are absolutely wonderful just as they are, but variety is the spice of life. What if you could take a delicious whiskey and make it even smoother? Attenuate that high-proof alcohol bite? It's easier—and even more delicious—than you think.
Web startups are made out of two things: people and code. The people make the code, and the code makes the people rich. Code is like a poem; it has to follow certain structural requirements, and yet out of that structure can come art. But code is art that does something. It is the assembly of something brand new from…
Sweet? She's sweet enough for you, old man. I don't know who made this geeky confection, but I want to hug them. The attention to detail, the... the chocolate! And oh my god it's filled with even more chocolate.
If you attend a Sci-Fi convention, you're going to see about a squadron of Stormtrooper costumes. But only one Stormtrooper is a moist dessert that goes great with milk. Caketrooper.
The social bookmarking site Delicious is back. Those who loved saving their favorite links to a public (or private) profile page will find that experience unchanged. But there's a new central focus to Delicious. It's called Stacks.
