Molecular Gastronomy Spherification Recipe: The Soup Dumpling Big Mac

Earlier this year, McDonald's released its famously well-guarded secret recipe for special sauce. The big reveal was, admittedly, a little disappointing. There was no dazzling secret ingredient; rather, there were simply sweet and acidic elements in it in perfect harmony with one another. Read more

Rice Krispies Treats

FoodNRecipe's Adults-Only Irish Lucky Charms Treats Recipe

This recipe is categorically NSFW, in that cooking it will probably inebriate you to the point of incapacity. This isn't healthy, this isn't a great way to start your day, and it certainly isn't part of a balanced breakfast in that you will be so drunk you cannot keep your balance. Read more

Espresso Black Bean Chili

Wrong: Mark Bittman's Chili Recipe Will Have You Cooking Black Beans in Espresso

We're fans of Mark Bittman in that we agree that ingredients can be nice. It pretty much stops there. There's an element of wrong-headedness, even culinary negligence, that goes into a few of his recipes. Since even non-cooks have been having a lot of laughs at the expense of the Food Network's resident strawman Sandra Lee, we feel it necessary to apply the same pressure to Mr. Read more


Molecular Gastronomy Spherification Recipe: FoodNRecipe's 4 Loko Caviar for Fancy Weekends

As far as molecular gastronomy goes, this pretty genius (if I do say so myself) original recipe for 4 Loko Caviar is as close as I'm going to get to a signature dish. It's the perfect marriage of El Bulli high-mindedness with the kind of ham-fisted low-brow cooking that makes the work of a home-cook so immediately recognizable. Read more

Rice Pudding

Recipe: Corn Pops Pudding with Rice

I thought about how I wanted to do this rice pudding, and nothing quite came to mind that hasn't already been done before to a tee, with much more precision than that which I typically concern myself. Read more

Corn Risotto

Dope Recipe Alert: Corn Husk Risotto with Lime, Basil, and Pancetta

I know, I know, I'm sort of obsessed with corn recipes right now. But it's with good reason. We've had such a scorching hot summer, and if we're to go by some old farmer's wisdom on this, it means our corn is sweeter than ever. So let's make good on that and do not just as much as we can with sweet summer corn, but as much as we can with every part of the corn. Read more

Corn Milk

The Only Corn Milk Recipe You'll Ever Need

It's August, which means that if you're in America, it's hotter than hell. Your cat is lying prostrate against the cool, teal tiles of your bathroom floor. Outside your window, the view of the world is all wavy and distorted from the heat. One of your Tumblr subscriptions has posted yet another picture of an egg cooking on the sidewalk. Read more

Summer Corn

Sweet Summer Corn Vichyssoise Soup Recipe

When it comes to a rewarding, cold summer soup, gazpacho is probably the first option that comes to mind in this country. But for those of us that are tired of eating the appropriately glorified and liquified salsa (especially in a city like New York, wherein we're inundated with Mexican food choices), France has the answer.

Snail Butter

Not Too Haute: Heston Blumenthal's "Fat Duck" Snail Porridge Recipe

Heston Blumenthal may very well be my favorite chef (sorry, Ms. His approach to cooking gels ever-so perfectly with my approach to eating, marrying the dazzlingly strange with the undeniably comforting. And when it comes to the considerable menu of the famous Fat Duck restaurant in London, no dish is as enticing to the mouth eating it or as rewarding to the home cook replicating it as Mr. Read more

Ivan Orkin

"Invader from Planet Ramen" Visits David Chang's Momofuku Noodle Bar

In a particularly generous move that we hope continues, Momofuku Noodle Bar, the most inconsistent and middling of David Chang's soapbox brand, sees Ivan Orkin of Ivan Ramen in Setagaya, Tokyo taking over for a one-night only ramen event they're affectionately calling "The Invader from Planet Ramen.
