I Could Like this High-Tech Stovetop

August 27, 2010

The William Stovetop has just about all the features, and the control, that any home cook would want.  If this thing could crank out the BTUs and is easy to clean, I could see having this in my home.  The data that the unit offers is very cool, as it the basic concept.  It’s just a prototype right now, unfortunately.

Do you love the Muppets?  I know you do.  And you really, truly love the Swedish Chef.  Well, you’re gonna love this one, with the Chef rocking out to the electronica classic, “Popcorn.”

I really love this new long-format ad for Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Crunch.

Kitchen Art

I’ve heard of being artistic in the kitchen, but I never thought of making the kitchen into art.  Until now.


Capitol Q

July 14, 2009

My friend Joe York, filmmaker extraordinaire, has put together a fantastic film on one of North Carolina’s barbecue gems, the Skylight Inn in Ayden. The Skylight is a special place, a purist’s nirvana, where the crunchy skin is cut into the meat, and there are only three foods on the menu — barbecue, slaw, and cornbread. Yeah, they have soda and Moon Pies, but those aren’t made there. And the barbecue at the Skylight is seasoned very lightly, allowing you to savor the full flavor of the Q.

Watch the film, which was put together for the Southern Foodways Alliance with support from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group. The film debuted in New York, of all places, at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party.

Edit: I meant to re-post this great photo of James Henry Howell, the Skylight’s pitmaster:


Julie and Julia — The Movie

April 30, 2009

OK, this is a first.  I’m talking about a major Hollywood movie that won’t be released until August.  But when I saw this trailer a few minutes ago, I said, “I’ve got to take Ryan to see this.”  Ryan is my 13 year old daughter, and after seeing Meryl Streep doing Julia Child, I want to go.  Geesh, I might as well just forfeit my manhood card now.
