Last week I asked how people define "pizza" — does it have to have sauce? Cheese? What about the crust? For me, the crust is the most essential element. So how does this whole cauliflower pizza crust situation fit in, and why do people do it?
Mhmm you butter believe that these large cows and princesses are made out of butter (sorry, not sorry). These strange and kind of awesome sculptures are a staple at many state fairs across the country. What is your fair's butter sculpture this year?
As far as I can tell, there are two types of "good" food Vines: those that are funny or strange, and those that are actually helpful. The helpful ones are usually recipes or tutorials, like how to make a pie lattice crust.
In order to create a successful helpful food Vine, there are a couple things to keep in mind:
Pizza is undeniably one of the most wonderful foods on the planet, and lot of people have recognized its virtues in music. What follows are some of my favorite songs inspired by pizza. There are seven songs, one for every day of the week. Happy Monday!
Have you ever kept a food diary? I'm inspired by this one from an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Not only does this girl write down what she eats, but she also draws it, and uploads it to her Tumblr which cutely named "Foodoodle." If she ate at a restaurant during the day, she even provides the link to its website.
I've heard of cooking things inside of a coffee pot or on an engine block, but cooking food in a dishwasher kind of blew my mind. Yesterday Slate shared a video that explored the possibilities of dishwasher cooking. The verdict? Eggs were a disaster, seafood was sketchy, but the poached pears were apparently delightful.
While there's been a lot of talk about Instagram video, the ridiculous videos on Vine should not be pushed into a corner. Vine, the app owned by Twitter, allows you take six second videos of whatever you want. The time limit on the app forces people to get creative — a quality which is showcased in these awesome food videos.
Last week we asked you to share photos on Instagram of recipes you've made from The Kitchn. It was, in short, a delicious success. From Nutella cookies to summer rolls here are some of the 'grams we fell in love with.
A common argument I find myself in with other people, especially New Yorkers, is what qualifies something as a pizza. There are so many things called "pizza" that consist of some kind of carb as a base that is loaded with topping(s) - so where do you draw the line and say enough is enough?
New York City officials announced recently that they are starting a pilot program where doctors will prescribe fruit and vegetables to patients struggling with obesity. This is a part of an ongoing national study called FVRx (Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program). The program will target low-income, high-risk patients and it will be implemented in two hospitals: Lincoln Medical Center in the Bronx and Harlem Hospital.
