Himalayan Salt Plate

*I’d love to credit where I stumbled across this but sadly, I just can’t remember. Apologies in advance if it was you.

I’ve never seen or heard of cooking on a salt plate but after this description and its supporting images, I’m sold. You can serve food on it both hot and cold, and as an added bonus, you can put it directly on the grill.

Double Down Chicken Sandwich

In a case of this may be a heart-attack-sans-bun, KFC looks to be doing some test marketing on their new Double Down Chicken Sandwich. I love chicken, and KFC has the ability to make a tasty fried bird, but this may be the least appetizing products I have seen come to market in a long time.

I just hope this isn’t a push towards multiple items in the meat-as-a-bread category.


A foodie

I have a strange relationship with food. I love food but I don’t like to eat. Not avoiding eating in the anorexic sense, just the fact that many foods don’t go down well into my stomach. I know that it is a mental thing but in 30 years I haven’t been able to beat it.

I love food. I like the way it smells, the way it looks on a plate, how it looks in high-definition, the science behind making it all work together and the people who work with and around food. And with all of that, I don’t like food.

I want to like food. I really do. If I loved food, I would no longer be the “lowest common denominator” in any food related discussion in my circle. People would no longer have to base their food decisions on whether or not I would be negatively affected. Stories told about who the pickiest eater of all is would cease before my name became the capstone. I wish I could enjoy food.

There are things “I know” I can’t eat even though I have never even tried them. I have no idea what eggplant tastes like but I’ve seen it and have convinced myself that it won’t make it past my tongue.
