An Impossible Burger which resembles meat but is made of plant products. Credit Jason Henry for The New York Times One of the chief selling points of the Impossible Burger, a much ballyhooed plant-based burger patty, is its resemblance to meat, right down to the taste and beeflike “blood.” Those qualities, from an ingredient produced by a genetically engineered yeast, have made the burger a darling among high-end restaurants like Momofuku Nishi in New York and Jardinière in...

New Group : Five Ingredients Or Less Recipies

I am starting a new group. I am calling it Five Ingredients Or Less, and I want it to center on recipes that use five ingredients or less.  Easy to make tasty, and can be made in a jif.  5 ingredient recipes or 4 ingredient recipes often use sauces that are store bought, which is fine.  Liquids like water , milk or broths do not count as an ingredient. I hope this will be fun.  Let's cook.

Serving the Fish Eye I have been asked to provide examples of some of the customs and societal differences I've come to enjoy in China, and I will include some that I don't enjoy as well.

The Order of Yoni ("yoni" being Sanskrit for "vagina," and debatably the oldest word for pussy known to man) is a beer company willing to make your wildest fantasies come true, assuming your wildest fantasies involve lactic acid, gynecological sticks, and sour ales. If you go to their website for additional information, the company – which, horrifyingly enough, refers to itself in the third person as "The Order" – tells, in somewhat broken English, of how they have,...

  The British have a pretty fantastic track record when it comes to keeping their armed forces buzzed: the British Royal Navy got rations of overproof rum in the 18th century; there were floating breweries for World War II-era British navy stationed in the Pacific; and to this day, Naval officers who’ve failed the Submarine Command Course (aka “The Perisher”) have traditionally received a bottle of whiskey . So the theory that “session beer” comes from a World War I-era...

You may want to grab a barstool before you hear this: Craft beer has some very serious issues. While things certainly seem bubbly on the surface for the category—years of double-digit sales growth have led to a large increase in brands and an overwhelming selection of IPAs, stouts, saisons, and just about every other conceivable type of beer on store shelves—growth is slowing, putting pressure on the industry. What makes matters worse is that breweries are still opening at a...
