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.

The Two Most… “Interesting” Videos On The Internet This Week.


mgid-uma-video-mtv.com-1068714

I had an interesting time this week combing through articles, photos, and videos on the internet, and two specific things, not only caught my eye, but will cease to leave my mind.  The first of which is the new Samsung Galaxy S7 commercial featuring Weezy himself.  Lil Wayne has said that his debut role in Apartments.com’s Super Bowl ad was “dope” and the “illest idea ever.”  He loved it so much that he’s now taken a new role in Samsung’s Galaxy S7 ad campaign. The rapper said he plans to do more acting in commercials in the future.  Adweek asked Lil Wayne if he’d like to be in more ads and he responded: “Hell yeah, I do … it was kind of different to have to actually follow the rules, and that was cool. Being on the set and knocking it out, it was fun.” The commercial itself is hilarious, and quite “different”.  Check the method below.

Sausage-Party-trailer-still

The second internet clip that is now seared into my memory, is the Pixar spoof from writers/producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  “Sausage Party” may look like it’s headed for an NC-17 rating, but the creators assured advanced audiences at SXSW that it has already been awarded an R rating by the MPAA. It is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. And it is definitely not for children, so keep them far, far away.  Seth Rogen headlines this adventure as a hotdog just looking to get laid inside a delicious bun. But he soon discovers his destiny lies upon a different path. The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars. The ensemble also includes Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.  Check the trailer below.

Nutritional Mods for Healthier Pizza Fries

Roast ’em, Don’t Fry ’em – The first thing I had to do was just ditch the frying. Obvious, right?!? And totally easy! Roasting potatoes at a high heat in the oven produces a wonderful, crispy, golden-brown exterior and a fluffy interior. So much great flavor and texture without the frying!

Load ’em Up (the Right Way) – These Pizza Fries get a big wallop of flavor from antioxidant-rich spices. Yum! Tasty little antioxidants! And, dipping your fries in pizza sauce offers up even more layers of awesome pizza-y flavor, plus great lycopene from the cooked tomatoes.

One of the best ways to healthify practically anything is to start by looking for ways to add in more veggies.  Colorful peppers and onions are fantastic additions, and you can add anything else you like, too – think mushrooms, tomatoes and olives. And sure, you can add some pepperoni or sausage if you’d like. Just be sure you go with reduced-fat options like turkey pepperoni, and try to focus more on the veggies than the meats!

How to Be a Potato Rock Star

Making the Cut – It’s really up to you how you’d like to cut your potatoes – have ’em your way, for sure! But if you start with jumbo (restaurant-sized) russets, or want to try thin shoestrings or round wafer fries … all of those things will affect your baking time slightly, so just keep an eye on your potatoes while they’re in the oven. For this recipe, we used standard-sized (not restaurant “jumbo”) russets, and cut each into 12 fries that were thin enough to offer lots of golden, crispy exterior, but thick enough (kind of like steak fries) to have satisfyingly fluffy insides, too. Here’s how we cut our potatoes:

Potato Equality – What’s most important when cutting your potatoes is ensuring that – whatever size and shape you decide on – you make all your potato pieces as similar in size and shape to each other as possible, so they all bake evenly in the oven.

Potatoes Like Their Space! – You know why potatoes are grown on big, spacious farms? Because they definitely like their real estate, especially when it comes to oven-baked taters! Another big key to Pizza Fry success (or success in roasting any veggie) is spreading your veggies out on the baking sheet. Our big 14×17″ baking sheet is at maximum capacity with about 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes, but you can see that there’s still just a little space between each french fry. That’s critical for good roasting.

If veggies are piled on top of each other or closely touching, they tend to steam more than roast, and you’ll miss out on that crispy-crunchy-golden exterior we’re going for here. If you feel like your baking sheet is too crowded or you want to make a double batch, just use two baking sheets instead of thinking you’ll be ok cruising by with only one.

Because really … would you want to skimp on this to save yourself digging out a second baking sheet:

What Happens When You Mix Asia, Cuba, And New York?


ASIA9 ASIA8 ASIA7

It’s Asian cuisine engineered by a Cuban born and raised chef done with a Latin twist. It speaks true to the character of New York City as its innovative, appeals to the senses and runs the fine line between sophisticated and whimsical. There’s a representation through the food of one man’s dream to make it big in New York, this man being chef Luis Pous but more importantly it holds a much larger significance within a unique social context. The menu is exquisite and genuinely original. From black bean & plantain empanadas to ginger & papaya marinated palomilla, there’s something for every persons taste. What’s most fascinating is how chef Pous has found intricate and delicate connections between two cuisines which traditionally have never mixed. It’s a classic example of art imitating life as the worlds of innovation and cultural diversity have originated from within a social context and transferred into an exciting gastronomical experience. It’s the New York mentality which has allowed such an amazing thing to occur.

ASIA5 ASIA4

The vision and inspiration behind the menu is particularly interesting as it’s an exploration by chef Pous into the evolution of Cuban cuisine. His belief being that the menu he has developed is a representation of where Cuban food would be had they had access to a wider range of global ingredients within the past 50 years.  Food is only really half of this amazing tale though. The other 50% is in Asia de Cuba’s sleek and modern design. Its clean, minimal, classical and a great interpretation of old Havana within a modern context. Conceived by renowned designer Rafael de Cárdenas this beautiful layout has characteristics of 1950’s Hollywood, it’s a little ‘mad men’, somewhere cool to escape the streets in salvation of a good drink and a nice meal.

Food Cubes?

In 2014, Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant contacted conceptual design studio Lernert & Sander to create a piece for a special documentary photography issue about food. Lernert & Sander responded with this somewhat miraculous photo of 98 unprocessed foods cut into extremely precise 2.5cm cubes aligned on a staggered grid. Looking at the shot it seems practically impossible, but the studio confirms it is indeed the real thing. The photo is available as a limited edition print of 50 copies printed on 40 x 50cm baryta paper signed by the artists for about €500.

The website ‘The Art Of Plating’, has luckily made it a point to demonstrate to chefs, and food aficionados alike how to get your plates to look like they came from the kitchen of a 5 star restaurant.  Check some of their examples, and make sure to pass by their site.

From the beginning, Pretty Beach House set a new standard not just because of its exquisite location and its exclusive home-like setting of just four private villas, but it also exceeded all expectations in terms of cuisine.  We stayed there every year and consistently kept it on our 10 best places to stay list, together with Castello Di Reschio in Italy , El Palauet in Barcelona land Saffire in Tasmania.  But it late 2012, a fire destroyed much of the main pavilion and our favorite resort closed for more than two years for complete restoration.  The main pavilion is elegantly restored with decommissioned railway timbers from 1883 and each of the four pavilions – Treetops, Bayview, Hideaway and The Retreat – are beautifully appointed with works and craftsmanship of local and international artists and artisans.

The resort continues its tradition as a foodies paradise with its spectacularly cool new kitchen led by distinguished chefs and restaurateurs, Stefano Manfredi and Julie Manfredi Hughes, whose incredible cuisine impresses us every single time.  The interior design of the villas is un-pretentious and  beautifully fitting for the environment. Natural fibres, muted colours and restful accents create a perfect setting for the views of the incredible landscape with hundreds of old gum trees standing there like living sculptures.  The villas interiors are luxurious but not over the top and feature raw, natural materials which blend in with the more ‘designer’ elements. Privacy is paramount which is why, three of the four villas also has its own private swimming pool. The villas have their own old school record player along with a selection of vinyl, iPods with songs already loaded on it, king size beds have linen sheets, bathtubs and wireless internet (for online-junkies) so there’s nothing else to do but slide from day bed to pool and back again in a haze of sedation, facilitated by attentive staff who materialise at your every whim.

The Future Of Cooking.


Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 2.59.28 PM

You probably don’t realize it, but you’ve been cooking inefficiently. We’re not talking the funky way you cut an onion or the lack of prep before starting a recipe, we’re talking about the pots and pans on your stove top. Flare Pans were designed with the help of Dr. Tom Povey, a rocket scientist from Oxford, in an effort to help you cook faster and better. Each pan allows the heat from the burner to be distributed evenly across the base and sides which will cook your food faster (44% faster) while using less energy and without burning or scorching the food around the edge. They belong on wedding registries everywhere.

Japan Airlines Has Quite The Menu.


Hiroki-Yoshitake-600x900

As the blog evolves, we’ve started to cover different topic, food is one everyone needs, and we haven’t talked about enough.  Hiroki Yoshitake, chef at the Parisian restaurant Sola, has created a new in-flight menu for Japan Airlines.  Through August 31, first-class and business passengers on Japan Airlines will enjoy meals by the chef and co-owner of Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris.  In first class, caviar, smoked salmon and beef tenderloin are among the high-end dishes travelers will enjoy. Business class passengers, meanwhile, will savor foie gras mousse and sauteed lobster, among other offerings.  Passengers can end their meal on a sweet note with a light tropical fruit cream, a bergamot-infused milk chocolate mousse and a light cookie.  The new menu is available only to passengers in these two classes on flights between Paris and the airlines’s Japanese destinations.  In September, Japan Airlines will introduce a new fall menu from Shinichi Sato, the chef at the Parisian restaurant Passage 53, accompanied by a dessert course from pastry chef Jean-Paul Hévin.  Tasty as hell.

Wheat is Wheat is Wheat | Peddy Mergui


06

In an exhibition titled Wheat is Wheat is Wheat, designer Peddy Mergui wraps over a dozen basic food products – from fruits to coffee and salami – in high-end designers’ patterns and big brands’ famous packagings in order to elicit reactions based on brand recognition. Meet Apple’s iMilk, Prada’s flour, and Burberry’s butter. “High-end brands are not selling the products, they are selling the lifestyle,” Mergui tells The Verge by phone. But now, those brands are beginning to branch out, “extending products to a lot of fields that did not use to be there.” Mergui says that people who have seen his exhibit have had a strong response. “People really liked it,” he said. “I felt a bit confused. You’re just buying flour, or milk, or whatever – this is a basic thing.” Wheat is Wheat is Wheat is currently showing in San Francisco at the Museum of Craft and Design and will be there through June 15th.

Artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves are authors of project called Food Maps. It’s a series of detailed maps of different countries and continents, created from the delicacies for which each place is known. The United States’ map is a glorious quilt of wheat and corn. India is the richly colored mosaic of spices. Maps of Australia and Japan feature love of their citizens to seafood. And so on. These maps show how food has traveled the globe – transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place. If you like such food creativity then you should also check delicious flags of different countries also made from food.

Brussels Airlines Hires Michelin Starred Chef


Geert-Van-Hecke-600x898

Passengers on the Belgian airline will be able to savor a meal created by one of the top names in contemporary Belgian gastronomy: triple Michelin-starred chef Geert Van Hecke. The chef, who has presided over his Bruges restaurant De Karmeliet for over 30 years, has prepared a starter with smoked Damme eel, tarragon yogurt sauce and mashed fennel. This first course will be followed by a dish of “Bruge-style shrimp,” curried sweet potatoes and steamed snow peas. Flemish beer and cheese will accompany the meal. This menu will be offered to business class passengers on long-haul flights leaving from Brussels for destinations in Africa or the US. The collaboration with Geert Van Hecke is the first in a series of tie-ups in Brussels Airlines’ “Belgian Star Chefs” initiative. Every four to five months, the company will invite a different celebrity chef to renew its business class menu with gourmet dishes based on seasonal, regional ingredients.

Unique Rorschach Tests With Various Foods


estherlobororschach1

Madrid-based photographer Esther Lobo, aka FahLoSue, has embarked on a personal project known simply as Rorschach that uses various food items to create works of art inspired by Rorschach inkblot tests. Each frame is a unique creation by the artist herself experimenting with splatters of condiments, yogurt, pudding, and other edible goods. Lobo presents each of her arrangements without any post-production magic to alter the design. By simply using her hands to smear the palatable ingredients on a plastic plate, she was able to form interesting shapes and patterns. Due to the flexibility of her canvas, Lobo proceeded to fold the plastic plate in half to attain a wonderful sense of symmetry, just like the Rorschach test. Upon completing each of her handcrafted images, the artist explains: “Finally I have placed the source of the stain over the symmetrical image, and so documented the psychological portrait of each food stuff.” In the end, it is up to the viewer to decide what they see in the stained splashes of food.

‘Cut food’ is a series of photographs by studio photographer Beth Galton, which exposes the innards of everyday culinary items. Together with stylist Charlotte omnes, the duo divided each of the diverse food items, allowing for a surprising glimpse a the cross sections of commonplace eats. Particularly interesting are the halved liquids — some of the food items, such as the doughnut and the boiled eggs, were able to be cut smoothly in half without any manipulation but other tricky elements, like soup and coffee, required the use of a gelatin subtance to solidify the fluid forms.

Almost every day for one month, Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi created a fun illustration made with food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs.
