The Birth of Saké (Documentary)

The award-winning documentary “The Birth of Saké” balances the physical labors of saké-making with the brewery workers’ personal stories and private sacrifices.

Incredible! This documentary is about a tradition, an art, craftsmanship, a lifestyle, a family business, a journey of self-discovery and appreciation and so much more brought to us by Japanese-American documentarian Erik Shirai. Turns out that Saké is waaaay more than fancy rice wine. The story’s telling – in “The Birth of Saké” – does involve a lot of cups of it though. The best!

In Japan, it’s such a normal thing to be an artisan, to dedicate your entire life to one craft and to be really good at it, so much so that Japanese people don’t find it interesting. But I was able to understand the culture, but also see it from a different perspective and really appreciate it. Hanging out [at the Tedorigawa brewery] for such a long period of time helped me realize that the Japanese culture is very embedded in who I am, in my aesthetics, my values, and how I see the world.- Erik Shirai

Check out the trailer above. Catch it on Netflix. More on the documentary at NBC News online.

The World’s Most Expensive Cheese… Is Made From WHAT???!! (Video)

$500 a pound? How did 2 Chainz not try this as The Most Expensivest cheese? But the $500 tag…not the standout fact about this cheese. It’s what it’s made of: not goat or cow milk. Naaah, son. DONKEY milk!

At the Zasavica Special Nature Reserve in Serbia, Slobodan Simić creates the world’s most expensive cheese with milk from his herd of donkeys. Donkeys only produce a tiny amount of milk, so that—coupled with the fact that Slobodan is the only one with the recipe—means that his cheese goes for around $500 dollars per pound.

So… ASS cheese. Is that’s what’s hot in these streets? When you get your paper way up, you can have donkey cheese on that expensive ass burger. Ha!!

Prodigy Shares And Shows How He Cooks BBQ Salmon (Video)

Verrrry interesting. A recipe demo for the Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook that Prodigy is pushing. While marketing execs might call this Merch 101, don’t you still want to try this fish? Plus: Knowledge dropped about his sickle cell disease, and how he adapted his diet while locked up (talked about that situation, too) to help him stay healthy.

First things first: You always wash your hands first!

In The Kitchen: Artists At Work (Video)

Most would agree that folks who master food excel in an art form that we can all appreciate. One that makes us go, “Wow!” Especially the dudes who risk getting slammed with a mallet every second making delicious chewy treats. Watch all this though. A FEAST for the eyes!

Diverse routes, same destination — these craftspeople are killin’ it in the kitchen from every angle. From barbecue in Compton to mochi in Japan, it’s cook hard, eat hard.

College Football Field Transforms Into Tuition-Paying Farm (Video)

Now, I’ll holler at any TV screen showing a college football field being put to good use. Before now, I thought that that was filling the field with high-powered, pounding offense and aggressive defense, with all the scores and collisions that come along with those. Gotta admit though. This…pretty good idea. Greens will grow, just like grass did. If you’re not pushing a sled down that field, dig it up and push a plow up it. Sow and harvest. Address the nearby food dessert (where residents have very limited access to fresh produce) AND fund higher education to boot.

Awesome. Simply awesome.

Action Bronson With Food and Fun From The Festival In Jamaica (Video)

Well, well, if it isn’t ol’ Bam Bam at the Nyam Jam Festival in Jamaica. And what’s cooking chef? Whatever it is… We’re sure to say, “F#ck, That’s Delicious!”

As Action Bronson’s presence in the “Food World” becomes more permanent, new and diverse opportunities are popping up for the self proclaimed Human Highlight Reel. This time it popped up in the most beautiful location possible, Goldeneye Resort in Oracabessa, Jamaica. The event was entitled Nyam Jam, and even before Action knew exactly what it was, he agreed to attend. As stated in the video, there was not a single bad bite of food, and if you love hot sauces and various pepper spreads, then you really couldn’t do much better. Mr. Bronson honed in on a calabasa slaw prepared by visiting Puerto Rican chef, Jose Enrique and a smoked chicken sandwich from Jamaican grill master, Gariel Ferguson. His experience at Nyam Jam inspired him so much, that upon his arrival back in New York, he immediately got cow foot stew and ate in the parking lot of Home Depot. One love.

FullyRawKristina: “Eating Healthy During the Holidays” [Video]

The Holidays are upon us and a big component of most holidays is the feasting that takes place.  Big meals second plates, leftovers that get snacked on throughout the day.  With Black Friday going into Christmas a lot of shopping will take place people purchasing high end items.  The fact is your health is something that is priceless and should be taken very serious.  FullyRawKristina is a vegan who promotes health, fitness, and eating real foods.  I enjoy her videos and social media where she gives healthy alternatives.  Now I am not expecting everyone to turn full vegan for the holidays but you can take some tips to help you eat better.  The fact is in the U.S. there are many more unhealthy choices than healthy ones.  So Kristina is challenging you to just eat one fully raw meal a day.  Worth giving a try recently I started juicing and eating one raw meal a day.  I can feel the difference so watch her fun video and hopefully it helps inspire you to make some healthy choices this Hoilday season.  Visit her site FullyRaw.com for more tips, recipes, and details!
