We live in the world of "egotarian cuisine," or, as Andrew Zimmern recently put it, "the age where no one is allowed to criticize the best chefs and restaurants in the world." Fair enough, we thought. Surely the best restaurants in the world can't be perfect, right? Right?
So, in order to give some really fair and balanced views of the world's best restaurants, we turned to the ever-reliable, ever-crazy customers unafraid to air their true opinions of a joint: Yelp. In a new series, we're digging through some of the most renowned restaurants' Yelp feedback to paint an accurate picture of what you're really getting for your dollar. As we suspected, Yelpers are hilariously jaded, bringing down the so-called best of the best.
While Richard Blais landed a sweet gig judging on this next Boston season of Top Chef, he landed yet another TV gig -- this time on the infamous Food Network. Could Blais, already the master of celebrity chefness (you've hit it big when you shill cat food, we guess?) give the Food Network a winning show?
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.
