Food writer extraordinaire Jonathan Gold has taken on a monumental task: cataloging the world's best of the world's best food. He says, "Let us pause to consider the sandwich, that magnificent unit of consumption, a construction so minimal that its form may be expressed as: Bread. Not-bread. Bread again...
Italian artist Sara Asnaghi has remained the human brain through a medium of something that's always on our minds (no, not sex): food. The series, titled What Have You Got In Your Head, features brains made from a variety of foods like chili peppers, sugar, coffee grounds, bread and candy.
Last week marked the seventh anniversary of the death of comedian Mitch Hedberg, the absurd comedian know for his perfectly crafted one-liners and non-sequiters.
To commemorate the cult comic, Laughspin dug up some little known and somewhat obscure radio ads that Hedberg did for Midwest-based sandwich shop, Jimmy John's.
Two of my great loves in life have finally been united: art and sandwiches. Brittany Powell created a whole series of sandwiches inspired by the works of famous artists. The Piet Mondrian piece (above) is definitely my favorite, but the rest are all really cool too.
Okay, so a few weeks ago, I shared this awesome roundup of chef-created sandwiches curated by 'wichcraft's Tom Colicchio and published in Saveur magazine.
I may also have called them the World's Five Best Sandwiches. So...
But, then I discovered blogger Nikole Herriott's work at her site FortySixth at Grace, and her Saturday Sandwich series, which features a totally different, but still amazing, take on some killer looking sandwiches.
When is a sandwich not just a sandwich? When it's created by a five-star chef, of course.
Saveur magazine recently released its sandwich issue, and employed Tom Colicchio of Craft and sandwich spot 'wichcraft to share what goes into a truly great sandwich.
The greasy breakfast is a classic post-imbibe trick, and as it turns out, there's scientific data to prove it. The BLT is a perfect food to help your body break down the effects of alcohol faster. The protein and aminos in bacon and the carbohydrates in bread are exactly what you need - in addition to LOTS of water - to begin to get your toxin levels down to normal.
The same study also proved something else we all know - Cooked bacon is nearly irrestible...
" 'The smell of sizzling bacon in a pan is enough to tempt even the staunchest of vegetarians. There's something deeper going on inside. It's not just the idea of a tasty snack
San Francisco-based artist Dan Kenneally has created Lunchbox, a series of 18"x18" sandwich paintings, that each use a minimal colored stripe to represent ingredients.
"Lunchbox presents a curious departure from an ordinary subject matter which is unprecedented in the art community. It communicates volumes though use of complex arrangement of color, and simplification. This ambitious feat achieves harmony through balance and composition."
I like that these are physical paintings with texture and drips, etc, rather than simple stripes drawn on the computer.
