A map showing each state's most unique favorite food

A map showing each state's most unique favorite food

Foursquare tracked people’s tastes across America to come up with a very interesting way to determine the uniqueness of taste: they mined their user data to figure out which food or drink was disproportionately popular in each state. So this map doesn’t show what’s the most popular item in each state, but what item is most uniquely popular in each state (in relation to other places).

This way,...

This is a real photo of different types of food cut into identical cubes

This is a real photo of different types of food cut into identical cubes

My eyes mislead me. Even though this photo looks so perfect that it must be CGI’d or digitally manipulated, it’s not, it’s completely real. Artists Lernert and Sander took raw food—you can see meat and seafood and fruits and vegetables—and cut them into perfectly identical cubes and laid them out to form a perfect grid. Perfect!

This french fry burger taco proves that happiness comes in many forms

This french fry burger taco proves that happiness comes in many forms

This is probably an unnecessary use of genius but I won’t deny the awesomeness of turning a taco into a vehicle for hamburgers and fries. That is, the fries become the taco shell that holds the burger food together. The form of a taco is nearly perfect and the taste of a hamburger is unbeatable (it is true vice versa too), so melding two perfect things together very probably breaks reality....

Hamburger and fries. Spaghetti and meatballs. And brain and bone marrow... I guess? Our friend Anna Péter, from the Hungarian food blog Malackaraj, shows us how she makes deep fried brain and bone marrow and because the universal rule across all types of cooking is that deep frying things and adding bone marrow is...

Meat glue is always going to be totally weird sounding but we’ve all eaten it before (if you eat at fast food restaurants, at least). It’s derived from blood and is a clotting agent that allows different types of meat to stick to each other, hence the name. You can do a lot of weird, Frankenstein-type experiments with...

A peanut butter and jelly burger is totally weird but I'd still eat it

A peanut butter and jelly burger is totally weird but I'd still eat it

Peanut butter and jelly is as perfect a combination as there can be in sandwich form. A hamburger is the most delicious thing you can have between two buns. Is it possible that combining two perfectly delicious food things can actually backfire and be awful? I want to find out by eating this PB & J Burger from Cook With Meat.

I think it’s too weird to actually be good. The throat clogging of...

10 of the most delicious food porn scenes in movies

10 of the most delicious food porn scenes in movies

Two movies made me immediately run out of the theater to the best restaurant I could find to immediately put delicious food things in my mouth because the scenes involving food in those movies were just so damn titillating. The first was Jiro Dreams of Sushi, which led me to a feast of bone marrow and beef at Minetta Tavern because all the sushi places were closed, and the other was Chef,...

It takes $1500, 6 months, and a lot of farming to truly make a sandwich at home from scratch

It takes $1500, 6 months, and a lot of farming to truly make a sandwich at home from scratch

How do you make a sandwich at home? Grab some bread, slap together some mustard and mayo, throw in some turkey, add some cheese, lettuce, tomato and onions, and then eat it right? That’s what normal people do but that’s a total shortcut. How do you truly make a sandwich at home and from scratch? It involves farming vegetables, milking cows, killing a chicken and so much more.

This video made me crave coffee this morning (even more)

If you like coffee as much as I do, New York City is the place you want to be. Filmmaker James Casey shares New Yorker's obsession with coffee and shows them talking about it in this neat video that made me crave a cup of deep black joe.

While I was enjoying my good hot black coffee this video popped into my mind:

How to make delicious Singapore chilli crab

How to make delicious Singapore chilli crab

The hawker stands of Singapore are filled with so much delicious food that you want to eat everything your eyes smell and your nose sees. It overloads the sense and crosses some wires and the dish that might be responsible for doing most of that is Singapore Chilli Crab. The sauce is edible crack and despite the name (and the use of chilis), it’s not that spicy!

Here’s how you make it (a lot...

A gun machine that shoots dumplings together would be the greatest thing

A gun machine that shoots dumplings together would be the greatest thing

The world should put together all their brain power and weapons experts and artillery and dumpling ammo so that we can make this dumpling gun machine happen. Imagine a world where at a push of a button we can shoot out the perfect amount of meat, spice it, wrap it and cook it in less than 2 seconds.

That's the world I want to live in. Those are the guns I want in my house. NTT Docomo

This deep fried Big Mac is the pinnacle of fast food ingenuity

This deep fried Big Mac is the pinnacle of fast food ingenuity

Today is a momentous day. Just by existing, this deep fried Big Mac has brought humanity forward. Because the only thing missing from the poster child of fast food, a Big Mac, is the key ingredient to most junk food goodness: getting deep fried. That mistake by mankind has been corrected. And here it is.

We’ve truly reached a higher level of being. Look at how Peep My Eats (via Foodbeast) made...

This is the biggest burger that McDonald's new menu lets you make

McDonald’s new Create Your Taste menu lets you make your own completely customizable and *gasp* delicious looking, gourmet McDonald’s burgers . The set up is simple: you hop on a kiosk and select whatever toppings you like on a burger and McD’s will whip it up for you with better ingredients. But that’s not fun!

These 7 wildly creative burgers look so damn tasty

There’s probably not a person on this planet that would associate burgers with Christmas but after watching this video from Food, People, Places, I just might start. They made burgers inspired (very loosely!) by Christmas and the sheer visual deliciousness of all their wild creations is so incredible and the recipes are so inventive that Christmas dinner should just be a sampler platter of...

Chef magically cuts a carrot into an elaborate net

Chef magically cuts a carrot into an elaborate net

On good days, my knife skills could be considered rudimentary. On most other days though, I'm probably a danger to myself. So never in my wildest dreams would I ever think that I could pull this sorcery off: turn a regular carrot into a perfectly webbed net by strategically cutting it with a knife. The chef is a magician.

This is magic.

This trailer for <i>Mind of a Chef</i> makes me crave foods I never ate before

Mind of a Chef is one of the best shows about food on television right now and this upcoming season they’re going to feature Gabrielle Hamilton from Prune in New York City. She’s a James Beard award winner so it’ll be fun to see what influences her and how she works but really, it’ll just be super cool to see all the food porn.

Here’s a trailer for Mind of a Chef Season Four which airs on PBS....

A spaghetti bun and meatball sandwich is evolution at its finest

Ramen burgers are just nutty mad scientist creations cooked up to force people to form lines. It's shock value packaged in a sandwich and it doesn't even make sense. But this. This spaghetti bun and meatball sandwich makes perfect sense. Spaghetti and meatballs are perfect together. A meatball parm is a perfect sandwich. Let's add perfect with perfect and see what we get.

The answer is the new...
