The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread…

In by Katherine, The Internets on July 28 at 2:40 pm

…is sliced Panda Bread from TARO-TARO in Japan.

Serious Eats says: “It’s sure to make the hearts of panda lovers everywhere explode with rainbows. Or, if you’ve ever wanted to eat pandas, this can be your socially safe panda-eating outlet.”

The Panda Bread’s artfully crafted layers of dough colored with green tea and cocoa make your traditional jelly roll look lazy and self-serving.  Unless you pass it off as Poliwag Bread.

Step it up, America.

We Follow: Fancy Fast Food

In by Katherine, The Internets on July 28 at 1:51 pm

Fancy Fast Food is built on the premise of “extreme makeovers of actual fast food items purchased at popular fast food restaurants.”  Dunkin’ Donuts become creme brulee, a Wendy’s Baconator becomes a savory Napoleon, Popeye’s Chicken becomes sushi.  No joke.

Best of all, no outside ingredients are added, except an occasional garnish.  And for the ambitious, tutorials are included!

Hello world!

In Foodie Fridays on July 28 at 8:00 am

Welcome to the Foodie Friday blog!

Welcome to Foody Friday

The legend:

“Foodie Friday started when a group of friends at Cal, jaded by the dorm food at Crossroads their freshman year, began cooking once a week in their apartments. It started off simple, with pastas and chilis, and gradually evolved into a weekly event with themes like Fondue Night and Southern Night.

When a core group of them lived together in the summer of 2009, and began cooking together throughout the week, the Foodie Friday blog was born to chronicle their adventures.”

As the blog takes off, we’ll be posting restaurant reviews, pictures of our own cooking, and other goodies. Be sure to check out “Meet the Foodies” to read more about us!
