The Top Five Odd Food Combos
Andrew Stephens from the Canberra Times
recently wrote an article on the Top Five Odd Food Combos. They talk about some of my favorites like the Luther Burger and the Jimmy Dean Sausage on a Stick, but they've got a few combos I haven't heard of like Apple Pie and Cheese, and a Nutella and Garlic Sandwich! Ingenious!
From: Email from Bazz
Hi, for whatever reason, dad sometimes brings home the Canberra Paper, and I found this article in the lifestyle liftout (It's called A2, Culture and Life, if you need to reference to it). Iit mentions luther burgers and a few other tasty goodies as well.
Negroni's Bacon Waterfall
The guys over at Negroni came up with this fine creation for their ad campaign. Makes me want to sing, "and I think to myself, what a wonderful wooooorld.."
Baconnaise, the Mayonnaise of champions
] Everything tastes better with bacon, right? So why should Mayonnaise be any different? The ingenious folks over at Baconnaise.com
came up with the idea after following on from their Bacon Salt
creation. I wonder what other fantastic bacon creations these guys will come up with?!?
We started with a customer request to make “spreadable bacon, namely mayonnaise.” At first, we were confused. Couldn’t you just combine Bacon Salt and mayo and be done with it?
Pa. man defeats 15lb Dennys Burger
He did it! Brad Sciullo, 21 of Pennsylvania is the first to defeat Denny's Beer Barrel Belly Buster
(incorrectly reported as the "Bruiser", which is 50lb). The 15lb monstrosity consists of 10lb's of meat molded into a 20-inch patty on a specially baked, 17-inch bun. Took him 4 hours to do it, but these sorts of things can't be rushed! We tip our hats to you Brad.
In this Monday, Oct. 13, 2008 photo released by Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, Brad Sciullo of Uniontown, Pa., is seen before attempting to eat a 15-pound cheese burger with five-pounds of toppings including bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers and a cup each of ketchup, mustard, relish, and mayonnaise at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pa., Monday, Oct. 13, 2008. Sciullo finished the concoction in 4 hours and 39 minutes
Fast food fan fined for monster gorge
Oh the SHAME KFC!! Fining your own customers for fulfilling their own Supersized fantasies with your fine product. Turns out a contracted company fined a customer $360 for staying in the carpark too long. Maybe they should put recliners and stereos in their restaurants?
A TRAINEE nurse who was hit with a $336 fine for staying too long while gorging on a monster-sized family bucket at KFC says she is "disgusted".
Man dies after chilli-eating contest
Ouch. Apparently this guy got the hottest of the hot chilli's grown for him, then made a super concentrated sauce out of them and ate a plateful of it for a dare. Later that night he had a heart attack. They haven't proven it was related though.... Be careful!
Andrew Lee made an ultra-hot sauce with homegrown chillis. The morning after he was found unconscious and paramedics were unable to revive him
Couple have Giant Hamburger instead of Wedding Cake
[via A Hamburger Today
] Forget the usual tiered white wedding cake. This couple love burgers so much they decided to make a giant one and use it instead! Tom and Kerry Watts of Poringland, England, served a 19 kilogram (42 pound) cheeseburger at their wedding reception made by American restaurant min-chain, Zaks. Looks an awful lot like one of our Megaburgers!
... Ah, how romantic...
While most bride and grooms traditionally cut a wedding cake on their special day, fast food fans Tom and Kerry Watts enjoyed a huge burger complete with all the trimmings. The mammoth 19kg (42lb) cheeseburger, which was nearly half a metre wide and weighed the equivalent of about 100 quarterpounders, was the highlight of the couple's wedding reception at Zaks at the Swan, in Poringland, after they got married at nearby All Saints Church yesterday
Man eats 23,000 Big Macs in 36 years
He's lovin' it! This guy ate pretty much 2 Big Mac's a day for 36 years, and kept the receipts for every single one. He only skipped eating Big Macs for 8 days over the 36 year period. He now keeps spare Big Mac's in the freezer just in case there's a snowstorm and he can't get to a McDonald's. Unbelievable!
FOND DU LAC, Wisconsin (AP) -- Talk about a Big Mac attack! Don Gorske says he has eaten 23,000 of the burgers in 36 years. The Fond du Lac man said he hit the 23,000 milestone last month, continuing a culinary obsession that began May 17, 1972, and is fed by his obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Critics bite at Hungry Jack's fat stack (Stacker)
It was only a matter of time before the media jumped on this bandwagon, and Hungry Jacks is no doubt laughing all the way to the bank. "The burger, which sells for $5.95, has no salad and the calorie content equates to more than half a woman's recommended daily energy intake and almost one-third of a man's."
Hmmm so what they're telling me is that I can eat 3 of these a day? Awesome!
A FAST-food chain's sale of a 4520-kilojoule hamburger is irresponsible and a sign the industry is ignoring health warnings about obesity, experts say.
12 Patty Burger Tower
With a few bamboo skewers as structural support, anything is possible! I think it's 12 high. Could be more....
