Fish sticks are among the most wondrous modernistic inventions of the previous century. They are easy to eat, efficient in their packaging & transport and the greatest of all: even people who don’t like fish will eat them. I am unsure if Mondrian appreciated abstract food.
Whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you may be. You can’t beat the real thing. It really refreshes and brings real satisfaction in every glass. It was not until America’s choice had been thirst best friend for decades and consumed by millions every day, when a serious drawback arose: the real thing makes you really fat.
Nanotechnology isn’t just protecting your food – it’s in your food. Scientists are manufacturing nano-sized vitamins that are easier for our bodies to absorb. In the future they hope to create ‘interactive’ food – food and drink that could change color, flavor or nutrients on demand.
Meanwhile, top chef Heston Blumenthal is dreaming of Willy Wonka style sweets, with three different tastes in one. Supported by the University of Nottingham, he’s even employed a research student who will investigate how nanotechnology could improve foods’ flavour.

Now this is how you do it. First you take the meat of a hundred animals; chickens (19%), turkeys (17%). Secondly, you blend them in a large tank with water, mais, wheat, oil, fat, chickencollagen, salt, soya, aroma, modified cornstarches, milk-parts, lemonjuice, maltodextrine, dispersant (E450, E451, E452), rising means: E500, taste amplifier: E621, anti-oxidant: E341.
Next you sculpt your mix into a shape which remotely resembles a chickens leg– like the ones folks know from the comics! Finally, you place your meat-water–corn–mix on a bone shaped peace of wood. Cover it with pan flourpan flour for the crispy bite. Tasty!
Gary Barwin – unsurprisingly from Canada – created this image in response to this weeks peculiar image. The good man even went on and wrote a little poem with it. Yes dear readers, consider this open season to send us your visual responses to our posts.
Created by Banksy. Peculiar image of the week.

Famous street artist Banksy left his grafitti spraycans at home and sets to opening a pet store. The difference with this pet store is that instead of looking at pets, you look at food products made of the pets. In these times where a lot of people don’t see the link with animals and meat anymore, this seems feasible and provocative idea.
Integrating nature in our technology. There are four different laptops: Floral Blossom (pink), which has a tropical, flowery scent; Musky Black (black), which incorporates a waft of cologne; Morning Dew (green), which smells clean and grassy, and Aqua Ocean (blue), which has an invigorating aquatic scent.
By placing the picture on this blog, the actual concept can’t even be fully grasped. For that you would need something like the concept itself: a laptop through which you could smell these laptops.
Copy and paste the successful and your shop will survive. That’s what these Indian entrepreneurs must have figured in the city of Mumbai. Peculiar detail: a trademark on that logo!?
Gola is a kind of Indian Slush Puppie – crushed ice with flavoured syrup on top.
But they love dinosaur!
Judge for yourself whether this dinosaur nugget product is supposed to give kids a history lesson on the evolutionary relation between dinosaurs and birds – indeed, chickens do stem from dinosaurs –, or simply a cleverly marketed fantasy product.
These two teenagers, Kate Stoeckle and Louisa Strauss, just found out many New York sushi restaurants and seafood markets are playing a game of bait and switch with their sushi.
“They found that one-fourth of the fish samples with identifiable DNA were mislabeled. A piece of sushi sold as the luxury treat white tuna turned out to be Mozambique tilapia, a much cheaper fish that is often raised by farming. Roe supposedly from flying fish was actually from smelt. Seven of nine samples that were called red snapper were mislabeled, and they turned out to be anything from Atlantic cod to Acadian redfish, an endangered species.”
Perhaps the most exciting part of the story is that DNA investigative tools once restricted to academia and crime labs are now moving into the hands of curious diners and amateur scientists. Like GPS – once a high-tech wonder now turned into a everyday gadget – simple DNA sequencing may soon be available to almost everyone. Who was I to think my mobile already had all the features: On my next phone I need a DNA sequencer.
According to the inventors of the dogpause bowl, slow eating dogs are happier than fast eating dogs. Having a dog in the first place is supposed to improve the quality of life, so imagine what a HAPPY dog can do for you?! No really, even dogless people should… Read more »
Rising supermarket prices are persuading hundreds of families to turn their back gardens into mini-ranches stocked with miniature cattle.
For between £200 and £2,000, people can buy a cow that stands no taller than a large German shepherd dog, gives 16 pints of milk a day that can be drunk unpasteurised, keeps the grass “mown” and will be a family pet for years before ending up in the freezer.
Schwan Consumer Brands, a leading frozen pizzas brand, has launched a challenging brand: UGLY. The design embraces the rising trend for natural, honest food and the notion that genuinely good food is all about taste and quality, not just about image consumption.
