Well, I’m pretty proud of that headline. Cornell University and the French Culinary Institute have developed a food printer that runs off puree and spits out sculptures – like rocketships made of gouda and scallions. And now we can have coconut sans awful coconut texture.
I’m not sure how readily the service is available, but La Muse and I took (stole) one of the picnic baskets from The Roundhouse to the beach this weekend. We indulged in the likes of their homemade truffle cream cheese, spread on ciabatta, with shaven ham and oysters on the side. Naturally there was a [...]
A lot of people said that it would be hard to top last year’s Vibe party – but that was obviously before we pulled out the little ace up our sleeve, in the form of The Grand Cafe And Beach who will be presenting this year’s Vibe party. And for those of you trying to [...]
The giant has realised a gap in the market with this new feature it’s adding to the existing structural layout of the site. Like you’d click on the left toolbar to access news or images, soon you’ll search for a recipe based on quite specific criteria. Even real chefs are amped.
Popped into Giovanni’s last night to grab some snackaroos, following an epic evening at Cape Town’s Design Indaba (loved the MINI stand – which let’s you design your own MINI). So La Muse and I picked up some cold meats and salads, as you do, and headed to the counter to pay. Lo and behold, [...]
In sticking with the theme of striving to keep you up-to-date with all the latest information concerning matters of investment and business, we now bring you a story to tickle your taste buds in a new way. Brussels has declared the pasty is now no longer in any danger of being plagiarised.
That’s how they’re rolling in Game stores at the moment. This genuine in-store signage was spotted by 2oceansviber Casey A, who was no doubt in the store to get a 90cm Telefunken plasma for thirty bucks. Luckily her trip was made all the more enjoyable, with this beaut! Naturally this post will be going straight [...]
You may be aware that there have been Himalayan Tahr’s living on the slopes our beloved Table Mountain for many years. The population has dwindled in recent times, and it was decided to remove all of the exotic creatures for good. However, a have few managed to evade the sniper’s barrel. Until now.
Our friends from the eastern side of the world have long been known to be rather enterprising with the way that they decimate the ocean to sustain their fish needs. A photographer has been able to reveal their latest shocking technique: cyanide poisoning free-divers.
Eating out of dust bins has been all the rage here in South Africa for quite a while now and our rubbish is sorted by bergies long before it even reaches the recycling area back at the depot. Now, a certain Sasha Hall has been arrested in the UK for “theft by finding.”
It’s quite full-on, this one – and it certainly doesn’t need any explanation. I mean, you GET the humour, right? It would have been one thing if the label was on a 6-pack of eggs. Because a male chicken is a cock, and it would kind of make sense that the eggs are ‘cock’s fresh.’ [...]
But not by Julian Assange. This American Life reports that the recipe was published as a photograph on page 28 of the Atlantic Journal-Constitution newspaper in 1979 as part of an inconspicuous historical piece on the Coca-Cola company, but the small size of the newspaper, the poor placement of the article and a complete lack of the World Wide Web meant that the historical leak went unnoticed. You can see it after the jump.
Well this seems like a good way to end the week/start the weekend. Beer-batter marshmallows. I don’t know how I feel about these things, taste-wise, but in terms of taking something awesome and then coating it in something else that’s awesome, beer marshmallows get my stamp of approval.
In a great example of irony, two McDonald’s executives have decided to throw the concept of fast food on its head and launch a chain of healthy restaurants. However, more ironic is the name that has been given to the chain: Lyfe. You are not going to believe this.
If you haven’t heard of the Good Work Gig then you’re in for a treat. The GWG will be hosted by the Grand Cafe on Camps Bay beach, and is in aid of The Good Work Foundation. Keeping in spirit with its name, the Good Work Foundation is a charity dedicated to helping the young [...]
Look, there’s no doubt that a fine dining experience can be a memorable occasion. But there comes a time in a man’s working week, and sometime’s in a woman’s, even, when a sinking realisation settles in the pit of your stomach. We’re talking about the need to have a “chow” and where you can get one with a draught beer for under fifty bucks.
Feeling bad about buying, say, “Ass” products for example, and the related ethical practices involved in their manufacture? Well, you no longer need to worry my friends, because as usual, there is now an app available to clear up any confusion you may have had prior to deciding on your now, ethical purchase.
It is not known what sparked off this very-public in-store mockery, but Pick n Pay has clearly got something against Tiger Brands and, in particular ‘Enterprise’ – their meat products range. Apparently Pick n Pay reckons that Enterprise Renown “Spreads Ass.” We caught up with Enterprise Foods’ Marketing Executive, Sonja Botha, for comment. Click link [...]
With the Radlantic continuing its game of lake-lake as far as Windguru will forecast (7 days ahead, actually), rumours of your plastic water bottle causing cancer are bound to peak. No doubt reaching for a sun exposed bottle of warm water will be met with upturned noses and precautionary words. So, hit them with the truth.
Wow. I’m not sure what the appropriate response is here. Finnish folk referring to themselves as the ‘Food Liberation Army’ have ‘kidnapped’ a statue of Ronald McDonald, and are threatening to execute within a week if their questions concerning the quality of McDonald’s food production are not answered.
We’ve covered a lot of Ass-Flavoured Products on this website and have noticed great progress for this alternative, yet popular flavour. From hot and cold drinks, to cleaning products and even lighters, it seemed the ass flavour could be applied to anything. But it’s one thing giving everything an ass ‘edge,’ a completely different thing [...]
“Hey guys. I’m Gary Thomas. Welcome to The Waiting Room. We’re going to play you some music, in case you were wondering about all…this.” So began Gary Thomas’ Long Street gig last night. It stayed awkward, but the music got better as the night went on.
Ja, so basically I surprised even the great Silwood Cooking school, with my orgasmic roast summer vegetable dish. But I can’t take all the credit for it – as it was sent through from France, by Mother Dearest. Click link for the video (and recipe), in case you missed it. Fans of Idols’ Adeline will be quite pleased with this too..
Unrest in the Ivory Coast is making it impossible to live there let alone farm cocoa. Now, half the world’s cocoa comes from the Ivory Coast. Which means half the world’s chocolate comes from the Ivory Coast. We can absolutely not get by with half the world producing the whole world’s chocolate. Absolutely not.
Just before the soccer world cup we brought you a story about a deranged restaurant owner in Arizona serving up lion’s meat as a cute homage to SA. Now those yanks are at it again. This time in a different restaurant in the same carnivorous state. They just can’t keep their hands off our cats.
If you’re as grossly obese as this man taking a brisk walk every couple of days just won’t do when attempting to lose weight. There are a number of reasons for this, foremost amongst which are that you weigh so much that you cannot walk and if you do manage to get up your legs will sheer at the ankles.
So! Pretend we’re having that bit of dialogue from Pulp Fiction where we talk about Burger King burgers being called ‘royale’ in France, except we’re talking about North Korea, and they call them “minced meat and bread,” to avoid referring to the uniquely American hamburger. Also, this is a new thing.
The phrase goes, “If you can’t handle the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen”. In economic terms, the past two years have been pretty chilly, which has in turn left more than a few businesses owners feeling a little hot under the collar. Controversial Cape Town restaurant, Jardine, is the latest to fall foul of the global recession, and the head chef has made for greener pastures.
Now your chocolate hoovering habit is propping up the revenues of would-be dictators, more specifically, the regime of the Ivory Coast’s political limpet, Laurent Gbagbo. Feel bad. Feel very bad. And fat. Evil and fat.
