Thank heavens, burrito-less nights are now a thing of the past! At least for the citizens of Los Angeles. The world’s first burrito vending machine, Burrito Box, offers six varieties: uncured bacon with egg and cheese, roasted potato with egg and cheese, free-range chicken with beans and rice, shredded beef and cheese, roasted potato with […]
First spiders, then crocodiles, now Anaconda-sized earthworms? Australia is really making it hard for me to pay them a visit. The Giant Gippsland, which can be found in Gippsland in the south-eastern part of Australia, is 31 inches long and one inch thick. That makes it the world’s largest species of earthworms. But worry not, […]
With gamers still in their honeymoon phase with the newly-released PS4 and Xbox One consoles, it’s going to be pretty hard to separate them from the computer – even for a festive dinner on Christmas day. UK video game retailer GAME decided to capitalize on this opportunity and came out with the “Christmas Tinner,” a […]
Have a bit of the macabre for breakfast and your mornings will never be the same. Eat death with a side of bacon, and if you survive, nothing will faze you afterwards. Cranky boss? Psshh I ate death for breakfast. And I went back for seconds. To use this wonderful contraption, just crack open two eggs into the rings and enjoy!
New York is a foodie’s paradise. From Michelin star restaurants and world-class chefs to mouth-watering food trucks stationed on the side of the street—this city is alive with delicious eats, anytime of day or night. But what draws my attention as a self-confessed “college-grade foodie” (aka I never grow old of ramen noodles or pizza) […]
Bread lovers, rejoice! Before, you can only eat toast, but now, you can smell like one. Created by The Federation of Bakers, this limited edition scent aims to challenge the fashion for bread-free diets. What? A toast-free diet? That’s preposterous! Though, personally, I have some reservations about this toast-perfume. Is it just toast without the […]
If you’ve always wanted to get your hands on an authentic triceratops skull or a set of Francis Bacon’s paintbrushes, now is your time. Christie’s in London is holding a very interesting auction come September 5, aptly named Out of The Ordinary. Of course, the auction will have all the usual Christie’s stuff, like paintings, […]
No matter what time of the day, a good burger is a good burger. We are firm believers in this and it is with no shame that we confess to having eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner at Charlie & Co Burgers in Sydney. It’s a magical place where chili, beef, chicken, bacon, cheese and tasty […]
How do you invent a dish like the Donut Zinger, which combines sriracha, chicken, marshmallows and peanut butter into something that’s quite… indescribably epic? Well, you challenge the chef. The odd dish was concocted when Bjorn Shen, the owner and chef of Artichoke Cafe & Bar, decided he needed some culinary simulation and got people […]

Widows are playing in San Francisco on Thursday June 13 at 111 Minna Gallery with support from Antwon and Alexander Spit.

I used to work at a place that combined chocolate and bacon together in a dessert. Most customers I tried selling it to were usually disgusted, but there were the brave few who would give it a try. And thing this is, they almost always loved it. There’s just something delicious about sweet and savory combined together.
Sandy Levins has the coolest job. She makes sure the kitchens and dining rooms of historic houses and museums are well-stocked with era-appropriate replica food. For just the smokehouse of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, Levins was commissioned to make 70 pieces of meat out of clay, papier-mâché and plaster of Paris. That’s 70 hams, […]
Living on the tiny uninhabited island of Big Major Cay in the Bahamas, these wild pigs swim in the tropical waters, happy to show off their piggy-paddlin’ skills to amazed tourists who regularly visit. The pigs swim out to yachts and boats in the hope of finding a free lunch and are surprisingly adept in the clear salty water. (Let no one mention salty bacon at all)
Chocolate is just chocolate, right? Not when it comes to Chocomize, which makes customized chocolate bars that you can stuff a multitude of pretty random stuff in, like 23 karat gold flakes, mini pretzels, graham teddies, bacon bits and Monkey Munch. Yes, you can even have them stick a candle in it. Sadly, the wax isn’t edible.
