Food/Travel: Rare Taiwanese Mutton Dish Is Dangerous And Delicious (Video)

Okay, so that blowfish sushi could kill the person eating it. Their choice. But this dish risks (e.g. shortens) the life of the chef?? Daaaamn! That better be some good azz mutton. And (hand raised)… um… what is mutton exactly?

We visited a legendary restaurant in Taiwan! A 72-hour mutton hot pot! Buried under ground for three days heated in a walk in furnace with rice hulls! One of the best meals of my entire life! Make sure to check it out and follow me on Instagram for updates!
Luke Martin

Well, the food does look good. Gotta admit. Oh, and I Googled it up: Mutton is meat from a sheep that is older than a year, ideally 3 years of age.

Food/Science: That’s Not Blood Leaking From Your Steak (Video)

If that KRS-ONE line, “Red and bloody, a corpse neatly packed,” hasn’t stopped you from eating steak, this won’t. Hey, enjoy your steak famlam.

(If it has stopped you, can I have yours? I love a good steak!)

Raw steaks usually have a natural, blood-like liquid in their packaging. Although its red coloring looks a lot like blood, that liquid is not what it seems.
– Tech Insider

Aha! Thought this clip was gonna go ‘anti-artificial’ on you, right? Interesting video. A couple of things: Bloodlike liquid (wtf) and… those percentages don’t add up to 100 (hahaa, thanks to Youtube commenters/fact-checkers for catching that).

Food: South L.A.’s African-American Taco Movement (Video)

Okay, you know Memphis for the barbecue and Philly for the cheesesteak… Basically, there are a lot of cities with food that reps. Check out a new food movement: South Los Angeles’ African American Tacos. Just a taste of Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series.

Welcome to Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she’s travelled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from Atlanta’s lemon-pepper wings, to NYC’s beef patties. These are America’s food grails.
First We Feast

Learned some math: Profit from slanging tacos > profit from selling weed (wow, plus weed heads probably come through with ‘the munchies’ yo). Serious business here. Watch.

Watch Action Bronson Make the World’s Best Sandwich (Video)

Though he’s high out of his mind, fresh out the studio, Bronson is not touting this as a ‘stoner sandwich’… slathered with a lot of that classic f#cking ‘old Chevy oil sludge’ sauce (joking, but so is Bronson through most of this)!

Action Bronson stopped by the MUNCHIES Test Kitchen to show us how to make his version of a simple butcher’s sandwich. While a regular butcher’s sandwich usually consists of some meat on bread with very little garnish, this version is as over-the-top as the man showing you how to make it. First, we start with some good Italian bread, a juicy rib-eye, and some olive oil. The second realm of this beast consists of ricotta salata and Calabrian chiles, and as if that weren’t enough, a smear of grape must from the 1989 vintage of Paolo Bea Winery’s top red wine. Enjoy!
– Munchies

Best part, beyond the sammich itself, is Bronson busting that ricotta salata nut. Bwaaahahaaa!

Action Bronson Makes The Ultimate Stoner Sandwich (Video)

The only thing is… I cannot be certain if Bronson is 100% serious about the sandwich. Dude is hilarious, but he is always hilarious. And Action in the kitchen will come up with food that makes you go F#ck That’s Delicious!

It’s a multicultural stoner sandwich starring a hockey puck of salami.
– GQ

The ‘Dirty Rabbi’… looks like an insane snack. That doesn’t mean I would not try it. But would you eat this ‘420 special’ sandwich though?

Charles Oakley Can Stand The Heat, So He Is In The Kitchen (Video)

Peep game… Soon enough, Charles Oakley is gonna be ‘holding court’ in the kitchen! And it’s looking like opponents won’t wanna mess with him there either. Haaa!

No ‘rough stuff’ per se. And the above video is just a rough cut for an old trailer that hints at what is to come. Who new Oak – the former NBA bruiser baller turned courtside cusser – had such flair, debonair (shooting his shot at the Honey next to him) and skills with the whisk and grill? Oh, and in case you were wondering why Oakley would want to cook instead of hire someone for that…

A lot of people don’t like to cook it the way you asked. You have it on the menu, and you say you want it one way, but a lot of chefs do it the way they want to do it. They get it wrong. I’m not mad at them, but when you wait 20, 30 minutes and it’s not right, a lot of times that’s disrespectful to me. When I cook, 95% of the time I know my food is gonna come out great.
Charles Oakley

For now, the title of the series being pitched is “Oak In The Kitchen,” and scenes for a demo reel to show to networks were filmed over the summer at the New Jersey home of Golden Era emcee Masta Ace and his wife (Leschea). All that throwback flavor involved for a potential cooking show. Nice! Hope it ‘pans’ out (grrrroan).

(Shout to @SoulPhoodie for this story.)

The World’s First Food Delivery Robot Is Now Making Deliveries In Washington DC (Video)

Hey people. This is happening. They got ‘Wall E’ from the movies (well, it looks like it…anyway) delivering your food now. Get your hoagies & chips, you gyros or whatever brought to you by a robot. Convenience encapsulated in mobile tech form. Rolling your order right on over at a [relatively] speedy 4 miles per hour, programmed not to run into stuff and to arrive safe & secure (like “they’ll email you a code to unlock the delivery case when it arrives” secure) for you to enjoy.

Starship Technology (maker of the deilivery bot) has partnered with Postmates (online ordering company) to make this all happen. Starship says this whole thing is still in its infancy, but this baby is a live baby, baby.

The news story is embedded above. Footage of the robot at work appears after the jump.

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!!

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.
