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 Jams. F. Kennedy and Bobby Evans – an eclectic rap duo from Los Angeles, formed out of the ashes of previously awesome LA rap group, Brother Reade. Widows are playing in San Francisco on Thursday June 13 at 111 Minna Gallery with support from Antwon and Alexander Spit. It’s all the name of the Colors of Tequila traveling pop-up series being presented by Olmeca Altos Tequila and which will be celebrating the best in drink, food, music and art.
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.
It seems that fruit and vegetable subscriptions are becoming more popular in Australia. If you’ve never subscribed to one of them and you’re a little nervous about it trying it, I’ve found one that you definitely should give a go. Barham Avocados are a fine company from the banks of the Murray River in New South Wales that pick and pack some of the tastiest avocados around between August and March every year. There’s a couple of ways to subscribe but we’d recommend the six month subscription: that way you get to taste all four breeds of avocados that Barham grow – Hass, Reed, Bacon and Fuerte. Try some of these bad boys on toast for lunch and you’ll be hooked for life.
Minneapolis-based designer and illustrator David Schwen literally layered a bunch of food ingredient names on top of one another to form what he calls type sandwiches. Useful if you’re thinking about what goes first in a BLT (correct answer: toast, tomato, lettuce, bacon, toast).
I’m someone who gets their weekend kicks out of a good BBC crime show and a packet of Cheese and Bacon Shapes, so this Violent Soho clip was like a friggen fun-storm for me. Their new single, Neighbour Neighbour, makes me wanna ride a BMX off my Grandma’s roof. The Brisbane lads have always been […]
The work of Zdzislaw Beksinski is certainly not new, but although it’s been around for several decades, it is still mesmerizing. Some of his paintings have a Francis Bacon meets William Turner feel to them. You often see blurry objects in the background disappearing behind a veil of light next to nightmarish creatures and dark gloomy atmospheres, all with unsaturated colors and ghostly brush strokes. I see it as a dark post-apocalyptic surrealism, which is no wonder taking into account he was a teenager during the Second World War.
Solar is a beautifully-designed weather app that was released for iOS yesterday. This app features a few simple, but useful ways to see the 24-hour and 3-day forecasts. It’s a stylish way to make sure you don’t get caught in the rain unprepared.
It’s not often you arrive somewhere for a lazy breakfast on a Saturday morning, to find a DJ pumping out tunes, a clown and a fairy doing wacky things with balloons, Italian cheese makers kneading mozzarella, chickens pecking about their coop, and row after row of impressive veggie patches. It’s a complex and seemingly chaotic package, but somehow, it all melds together, in a civilized, serene and incredibly cool oasis that’s attracting Sydney’s foodies in droves. Set in an old pie factory in the industrial suburb of Alexandria, The Grounds is almost more of a concept than a café or restaurant – a vast, gastronomic playground.
