On this week's Burger Lab, Richard Blais asserts that his British-inspired Welsh Rarebit Burger is both the world's best hangover food, and a late-night go-to. We're inclined to agree, but if we attempted to spherify horseradish while drunk or hungover, we would 100% end up on the front page of Pinterest Fails.
Amy's Baking Co. owners Amy and Samy sat down with Phoenix radio station My103.9 to hash out their side of what is now everyone's own personal Kitchen Nightmare in no less than a seven-part interview, all conveniently uploaded to YouTube.
It’s National Doughnut Day and do you know what we’ve discovered at The Braiser? Celebrity chefs really like gourmet-ifying other classic American staple desserts, like pies, cupcakes, and whoopee pies (which is basically the love child of pies and cupcakes). But few have tackled the doughnut.
In fact, most celebrity chefs have a publicly troubled relationship with the very American doughnut, choosing to call whatever deep-fried dough thing they put on their menu a beignet. (Beignets are a wonderful New Orleans pastry which are far more delicate and artisanal. Also, they’re French. So there.) Maybe the doughnut is associated with the worst, unhealthiest aspects of American cuisine?
Whatever it is, we’ve noticed that doughnuts and celebrity chefs never really mix. Here are four examples of this observation in action, and one prominent exception to the rule. Happy Doughnut Day! (Or, if you’re a hipster, “Happy Artisanal Beignet Day.”)
