    The bizarre dish combines your dinner and sweet course into a mammoth dish which contains two days worth of calories. It features six beef patties covered in melted, gooey cheese and between each layer is a spoonful of Lotus Biscoff spread. The bonkers burger was created by Tom Hope, 33, who wanted to create a salty-but-sweet combo. Surprisingly, the dish is a bestseller at his burger joint – Stripclub Streetfood.

    I don’t know when it happened, but at some point we—as a society—decided that it was indecent to consume a carbohydrate on or in another carbohydrate. There are some exceptions, such as Taco Bell’s now retired spicy potato soft taco and the UK’s chip butty, but in most circles, carb-on-carb is a fairly rare configuration. Potatoes are the easiest to get away with. Both the taco and butty (which is British for “odd little sandwich”) I mention above use potato as the “filling carb,” and a wheat-based carb as the delivery system. Getting two wheat-based carbs involved, on the other...

    Pizza company, Pizza Punks, are selling special kits this December where you can 'punk up your pizza' by using Christmas dinner ingredients as your toppings. f there are two things that we know to be true, it's that pizza is delicious and so is Christmas dinner. These, my friends, are foods of the gods, so why not combine the two and create the ultimate festive pizza?! Sounds interesting, right? Well, it turns out that this is something one pizza company have already done. Pizza Punks, which has pizzerias located in Glasgow, Belfast and Newcastle, have launched an Xmas Pizza Party...
  • Baked Brie en Croûte with Honey, Dried Cherries, Rosemary & Pecans

    once upon a chef ^ | 12/21/2020 | jenn segal
    I would love to think it’s my “engaging personality” that makes me popular at parties but, if I’m being honest, I know it’s really my baked brie — a warm and creamy round of brie topped with honey, dried cherries and nuts, all encased in golden puff pastry. People love this stuff and always ask for the recipe. The truth is that you barely need a recipe; store-bought frozen puff pastry makes it super simple.
  • Panforte: Italy’s Medieval-Era Fruitcake With a Peppery Kick

    Grand Island Independent ^ | Dec 9, 2020 | Amy Bizzarri
    Christmas in Tuscany would not be complete without a slice of panforte — the peppery, dried fruit and nut-based spice cake born in the central Tuscan hill town of Siena in the Middle Ages — served with a glass of vin santo, a sweet Italian dessert wine. Several legendary origin stories surround panforte. Some culinary historians believe it was inspired by lokum, aka Turkish delight, the ancient date- and nut-based confection popular in different forms in several Middle Eastern countries to this day, brought back to Tuscany by medieval-era crusaders. According to local lore, Sienese soldiers won the Battle of...

    Dallas Morning News ^ | Leslie Brenner
    The universal feel-good elixir expresses itself deliciously from culture to culture.It’s rare that a dish appears in cuisines all over the world. Chicken soup — the global feel-better elixir — is one of them. Soothing and comforting at a time when so many Americans are ailing from a pandemic or smarting from bruising political battles, it is this season’s perfect panacea. Chicken soup can celebrate what so many of us have in common: When someone sniffles, moms and grandmas (and increasingly pops and grandpas) around the globe drop chicken in water with aromatics and simmer away. At the same...

    Back in the day, when Southerners hit the road five-deep in the family car to visit relatives during the holidays or head down to the beach for the annual summer vacation, there was always time for a stop at Stuckey’s, the most beloved of all retro roadside stores founded in Eastman, Georgia, in 1937. It served as the perfect spot to grab their most legendary product: pecan logs. You know, the things with the fluffy homemade nougat center, thin coating of homemade caramel, and a crunchy outer layer of pecan pieces? Stuckey’s pecan logs have been “world-famous” for decades now...

    Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue says sales spiked so dramatically after her calls for a boycott that he named Democratic New York Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “employee of the month.” Unanue told Michael Berry that his sales spiked 1000% after Ocasio-Cortez supported calls to boycott Goya Foods in mid-July. How did @GoyaFoods CEO Bob Unanue (ooh-NON-new-a) respond to AOC’s threatened boycott of his delicious foods? Well, he named her “employee of the month” for helping increase sales. Interesting man, & unafraid to speak of faith, family & patriotism — Michael Berry (@MichaelBerrySho) December 7, 2020

    San Antonio Express-News ^ | Sep. 28, 2020 | Chuck Blount
    Chef Sean Archer of San Antonio’s Max and Louie’s New York Diner knows a thing or two about pastrami sandwiches. It’s the most requested item on the menu at the popular North Side restaurant, and he estimates at least 20 to 30 pounds is carved up for customers every day. The Max and Louie’s take on pastrami is one of the best you will find in the San Antonio area, with 6 ounces of the cured beef piled high on your bread of choice. But if you prefer to stay true to the classics, rye bread should be your pick,...

    It’s been four and a half years since Chick-fil-A made the difficult decision to pull its fan-favorite col slaw side from menus, and its tang still lingers in our hearts and mouths. "For a long time, we were really hesitant to take anything off the menu because we couldn't bring ourselves to disappoint anybody," David Farmer, senior vice president of menu development for Chick-fil-A told Business Insider in 2016. "But as our sales volumes grew, it just wasn't feasible to keep adding to the menu without taking anything away." *Wipes eyes* Recognizing the pain the coleslaw’s loyal fanbase was experiencing,...

Florida-based YouTube stars Robert Arrington and his wife Sarah will teach you how to properly prepare, grill and fry an alligator tail.

    After cooking more at home during supposed "Lock-downs", I've begun catching up on cataloging all the family recipes from several generations, including newspaper and package clippings from the 30s. Curious if others are all sensing a resurgence in home-cooking from scratch. Can't find an older Quiche Lorraine recipe. Maybe we can exchange recipes.
  • Air-fry without an air fryer: Consumer Reports

    CONSUMER REPORTS — Sales of air fryers are hot. People love the idea of crispy, fried food that’s supposed to be a bit healthier because very little oil is used. But what if you don’t have an air fryer? Consumer Reports say chances are you can still air-fry home without spending money or cluttering up your countertop with a new appliance. So what’s the deal with air fryers? These popular countertop cookers turn out chicken wings, french fries, shrimp, and other traditionally fried foods without using a lot of oil. You can spend $50 to $300 for one. The good...

    Wherever you are in the world, I hope you're safe and sound at home. As we all navigate the global COVID-19 crisis, it's important that we're still nourishing ourselves - not just our stomachs, but also our minds, our hearts, and our communities. As my colleague Brinda's grandmother texted her today from Singapore, "Don't get depressed. Sing, play on the piano, read novels, learn knitting and sewing, meditate - all these help." I don't know if I believe that the simple comforts of cooking will indelibly cure the ailments of today and tomorrow, but I do know that walking into...

    I am semi-retired. Meaning that I still work part time. I don't have to, but I do mainly to stay involved with other people's lives and as a healthy distraction. My job as a caregiver for disabled adults means I make them dinner, dispense medications, listen to concerns, etc. Yesterday, there was a surprise on the menu; Tri-Tip Steak. Of course I'd heard of it, but I had never eaten any. At about $13.00 a pound, my family would never have been buying it years ago, even when adjusted for inflation. Most of the staff know that I like to...

    I posted recipes yesterday for chocolate pudding cake, which is by its nature eggless. One person freepmailed and told me that a young relative is highly allergice to eggs and she was very happy to have that recipes. So, I figured that a thread with many eggless recipes may be useful to people with egg allergies, or those cooking for people with such allergies. Observant Hindus also do not eat eggs, and then of course there are vegetarians who for various reasons may not eat eggs. So, in honor of the young relative who is highly allergic to eggs, here...
