Culinary Hacks.


Get In The Veggie Zone.


In today’s society, it’s easy to forget about eating the right things. There’s often a time I’ll find myself making a sandwich and look to the fridge for inspiration, only to be greeted with empty shelves and a packet of ham…bleak. I may be lucky to have a bag of mixed salad leaves which have not held up. With the use of urban gardens, aeroponics, and hydroponics – healthy eating is now more accessible as ever.  The AeroGarden Harvest Touch set out to make sure big city living, with all of the hustle and bustle, doesn’t mean neglecting the importance of a balanced diet.

Diet isn’t the only importance regarding urban gardening, it’s a hugely important aspect in the future of sustainable farming.  The overall design for the indoor garden is warm and approachable. The form doesn’t threaten to dominate the interior layout/design of its environment. The indoor garden greets you with a large 360 open view space – which not only gives the impression of the garden taking up less space that one thinks but also giving the user a quick ‘one glance’ update on progress/growth.

AeroGarden’s Harvest Touch was designed to integrate seamlessly into a city dwelling environment, allowing anyone to grow their very own vegetables at home. The system is soil free and harnesses its growth through the use of 100 high power performance LED lights, enough for optimal growing conditions year round while sitting nicely on your countertop. There is an intuitive LCD display to help the user through every step of the way.

Flaming Cupcakes Of Love?

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me.  Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal.  I’ve been looking for something different to serve for Valentine’s dessert, and this is definitely different.  The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match.

This more of a gentle suggestion post more than a straight up recipe, but when it comes to the actual cupcake, you feel free to use whatever type of cupcake and frosting you choose. Obviously chocolate would work well the strawberry, but I know you’ve got moxy, so that inventive nature of yours and come up with something dope.  However, the flaming strawberries themselves have a bit stricter of guidelines.

strawberry

Notes for flaming strawberries:

  • Any alcohol below 80 proof will not ignite well.  I used 80 proof which makes a small blue flame.  Note: some have had trouble getting 80 proof to ignite – lots of people are recommending Bacardi 151 as a fail-safe.
  • You can add a little sugar to the inside of the strawberry to sweeten things up.  However, the flame seems to last longer without the addition of sugar.
  • Make sure to use a liquor that you like.  Vodka is a good choice if you want very little flavor.
  • Alcohol evaporates, so light the strawberry soon after you spoon the liquor in.
  • Room temperature alcohol ignites better than refrigerated.
  • Do I have to say it?  Probably not, but my conscience will not let me go without.  Do not attempt to eat a flaming strawberry.  It has a relatively short burn time, lasting about 30 seconds to 1 minute. So, enjoy but be careful.  Use your noodle.

Have You Ever Had A Floating Drink?

We almost chose not to blog this incredible creation from Nikola Zistakis, simply because the staff wanted them for themselves, but we chose not to be selfish.  If holding a fancy glass of bourbon scotch wasn’t classy enough, the Levitating Cup makes The act of drinking even cooler. The cup/glass hovers magically over its base, almost as if it’s attained nirvana, or is being abducted by aliens.

Using quantum levitation to achieve this feat, the cups are made from shatter-proof faux glass and come with chrome plated magnetic underside. The glasses/cups come in great variety, depending on whether you’re a juice, beer, coffee, wine, or even a dessert person. Plus, since these glasses are connected to their bases through a magnetic field, they don’t accidentally tip or spill over. They just pirouette around on spot in their own elegant style.  To pick up some of your own right here.

What Is ‘The William’?


the-william-stove-3

The William is an innovative stove top concept that utilizes the full surface area potential for cooking. It also ditches knobs and dials for touch screen control. Even though items placed on the surface of The William don’t automatically heat up. They are automatically recognized, but only when the user is ready to cook and activates the surface by tapping the control panel. Then, when a signature is recognized, the user has to manually raise the temperature in order for the signature to receive any heat.  That all may seem a bit complicated, until you check out the video below.
