The Best THC Drinks That Taste as Good as They Make You Feel

Bon Appétit

Cannabis cocktails have changed my life. I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but after going “Cali sober”—cutting out all alcohol and intoxicants with the exception of weed—for health reasons a couple summers ago, I had to build an entirely new relationship with drinking. And while it was easy enough to find bars in my […]

How We Divided the Cookware in the Divorce

How We Divided the Cookware in the Divorce

“We’re only making it official for the All-Clad,” I joked to friends and family at my backyard engagement party on a balmy Midwestern May evening in 2012. Everybody thinks they need a full cookware set when they get married. I was no exception. I had just turned 30, and though I was getting paid to […]

Could Chocolate Chip Cookies Taste Better Without the Chips?

Other people, like Sun, love chocolate but prefer it free of its dough prison. “You don’t need it in a cookie,” he tells me. “It’s that simple.” For me, it’s about texture: a firm hunk out of nowhere is disorienting. And for voice coach Tiara Aracama, it’s about sweetness. A self-proclaimed savory tooth, overly saccharine […]

What I Eat as a 33-Year-Old Ob-Gyn Making $290,000 in Los Angeles

Bon Appétit

We have a bunch of ripe avocados in the fridge so I make a quick guacamole, adding in leftover lime (from my parents’ backyard), red onion, garlic, hot sauce, a bit of tomato, salt, and pepper. Finally, I prep some pickled red onions—sliced red onions thrown into a mix of red wine vinegar, water, sugar, […]

Martha Stewart’s Lobster-Chicken Hybrid Is a Real $250 Dish

Somehow, she’s done it again. Martha Stewart set the internet ablaze this week by way of a chilling photo posted blithely to her personal Instagram. The photo, which has nearly 30,000 likes and thousands of horrified comments, shows a dish from an apparent meal at New York City’s Café Boulud: On a wooden serving board, […]

Grocery Store Sushi, You Never Let Me Down

Bon Appétit

In Underrated we review the ordinary rituals we build around food. Next up: dining on grocery store sushi. On long road trips growing up, one food headlined my family’s snack rotation: grocery store sushi. My mom stockpiled trays of it ahead of our departure—cucumber-avocado rolls, shrimp tempura—and periodically fed us from the passenger seat, mechanically twisting […]

With their glassy coatings and bright colors, tanghulu is a treat that has gone from traditional Chinese street snack to social media sensation. It’s most recognizable as a stick that’s about eight inches long stacked with bright red hawthorn berries, like strings of rubies clustered atop food carts.

What Does Wendy’s ‘Dynamic Pricing,’ Really Mean?

What Does Wendy’s ‘Dynamic Pricing,’ Really Mean?

Welcome to Delicious or Distressing, where we rate recent food memes, videos, and other entertainment news. Last week we discussed Pitbull’s new restaurant inside a Vegas Walmart. Dynamic pricing isn’t new. It’s why Disney World costs more during the holiday season, why a plane ticket is cheaper in the middle of the work week and, […]

She Spends Her Days With Bees, But Can’t Hear Them Buzz

Bon Appétit

Scent is another important mode of correspondence for the bees. They emit a pheromone with a banana-like aroma to signal alarm, and another that smells like lemongrass, which acts as a homing beacon. Paying attention to such subtle nuances requires a kind of patience that wouldn’t be possible if Kaye were operating within a larger […]
