Side Show which opened to critical acclaim in New York City on Monday night, is everything a Broadway musical should be. Centered around two joined-at-the-hip twins, Violet and Daisy Hilton, the glamorous, thrilling, epic story follows the duo’s quest for true love and acceptance through the spectacle of fame and the scrutiny of the spotlight.
To celebrate its opening, Cooking Channel teamed up with Zac Young, resident Musical Maestro of Sweets and Executive Pastry Chef at David Burke Fabrick, to create a Sweet Show to match the grandeur of the twins’ incredible Freak Show (you have to see it to understand). Exotic and enticing, playful and full of passion, these recipes — cleverly named for big Side Show numbers — are sure to stop the show at your next holiday gathering. And just like the Hiton twins, what makes these dessert recipes just a little different is what makes them extraordinary.

Thank goodness it’s bulky sweater season: Nick of DudeFoods.com has come up with a button-popping recipe for Beer and Bacon Battered Deep Fried Doritos.
We’re all about combining foods we love like Chili Mac ‘n Cheese and Chicken Caesar Salad Pasta, but this takes the idea of a food mash-up to a whole new level. My mouth is watering, but my pants are getting tighter just from looking at this image.
The process sounds fairly simple. According to the dude at DudeFoods, all you need to do is:
- Mix equal parts flour and beer
- Toss in some diced bacon pieces
- Dip the Doritos into your batter
- Deep fry in hot oil until crispy
We suggest a 5th step: Call your Cardiologist and make an appointment.
Make these, enjoy, then check out Pinterest for ugly holiday sweaters to cover your new food baby.

The holiday season is finally upon us, and that means one thing. The folks at Oreo have done it again and concocted a new seasonal variety to delight us: Limited edition Gingerbread Oreos are now on the shelves at your local grocery. We snagged a bag and put them to the seasonal taste test.
How do these Gingerbread Oreos stack up?

When celebrating the birthday of an American literary icon, not just any grocery story birthday cake will do. For American food-lover Mark Twain, perhaps the greatest and most mythologized American writer ever, only an iconic American dessert starring an ingredient that shares its name with his most famous character will do. Since Twain loved “all sorts of American pastry” and “fresh American fruits” this Huckleberry Pie (above) seems like the obvious choice to stick a candle in to celebrate his birthday while rafting down a river reading (or SparkNotes-ing) The Adventures of Huck Finn.
Twain’s love of food wasn’t limited to pie. On one long voyage over seas, he (as he would) waxed poetic about a long list of favorite American foods he couldn’t wait to get home to enjoy. We’ve got recipes for lots of ‘em, and we think Mr. Twain (born Samuel Langhorne Clemens) had pretty good literary and culinary taste.

At a time when technology and food are rapidly becoming intertwined, New York City’s MONO+MONO stands out as a unique bar and restaurant that is throwing back to an earlier time of scientific know-how. On December 1, this Korean eatery will premiere its menu on 3-D View-Masters (pictured above). While other restaurants are offering their menus on apps and iPads, owner M.J. Chung (above) says that his Korean restaurant is “proudly old-school.” M.J.’s impressive collection of View-Masters showcase beautifully photographed images of MONO+MONO’s nightly specials (Garlic Soy fried Chicken, anyone?). If the menu, which features delicate crispy beef buns and Korean fried chicken, is not tempting enough on its own, seeing it in 3-D will surely push you over the edge.
But the View-Master menu is not the only unique feature that MONO+MONO boasts.
