It's time to face the facts: if you want to open a restaurant that is a) not ginormous, b) not in Las Vegas, and c) does not serve donkey sauce, you are not going to ever be a millionaire. Sorry to disappoint.
It's been a bode for female chefs this month, after Acquavit'sEmma Bengtsson landed a second Michelin star for the restaurant. She's only the second female executive chef to have two Michelin stars under her belt (the first being Dominique Crenn in San Francisco). Turns out, Bengtsson almost didn't take the job in the first place. With the wave of her success, it's safe to say now: no more excuses, lady chefs.
Bocuse d'Or 2015 -- aka the Olympics of fancy chefs -- is just around the corner, so buzz away about the big announcement this morning. Grant Achatz of Next and Alinea (maybe you've heard of them?) will preside as the "honorary president" over the panel of judges during the competition.
Earlier this week the internet was introduced to the completely insane Watermelon Stroller, and we got to thinking — humans have come up with some pretty cool things for the sake of convenience. Here, we’ve rounded up a list of products that make food portable in the strangest and most ridiculous ways possible. People spent time, hours of their days, inventing these products so that we could eat and drink using as little effort as possible. Way to go, humans.
A few of the picks will really come in handy if you plan on celebrating Cinco de Mayo with any of these chefs. So toss your melons in a stroller and get ready for a life that’s at least six times more convenient.
