BBQ&A: Pitmaster Ed Mitchell’s Grilling Tips

When it comes to barbecue obsession, Ed Mitchell goes the whole hog — literally and figuratively.  The pitmaster of Raleigh-Durham’s The Pit and the new Ed Mitchell’s Que is revered for using farm-raised pigs and traditional cooking methods. We caught up with the legend at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party to dig into his […]

Review: Willy Wonka’s Peelable Ice Cream Pops

Willy Wonka’s candy inventions are as erroneously named as they are innovative. Nerds are actually quite popular, Everlasting Gobstoppers dissolve several millennia sooner than forever and Laffy Taffy, in all its uniform ruddiness, can be very austere. In all likelihood, the snozzberries on his lickable wallpaper taste more like kumquats. Public deceit isn’t his worst […]

May the Fourth Be With You: 5 Star Wars Kitchen Gadgets

A long time ago, a seemingly wise, old, green being of an unspecific species stole a human’s lunch and asked, “how you get so big eating food of this kind?” So maybe his wiseness is questionable.  Also of questionable wiseness: purchasing any of the following Star Wars-themed kitchen wares to celebrate Star Wars Day, May […]

How to Win at Competitive Chicken Wing Eating

With the Red Hot Chili Peppers taking the stage during the halftime show, this Super Bowl is the year of food — and also apparently bringing back stuff that peaked in the early 90s. (Looking at you, too, Full House commercial.) That means drinking games should be replaced with eating games. Instead of gulping a […]

Blitzkrieg Hop and More The Ramones Beers

I don’t wanna go down to the basement … unless it’s filled with craft beers themed after The Ramones. Fortunately, an East Village basement bar called Idle Hands (a mere 54 blocks from 53rd and 3rd) really was serving attendees of New York’s first Get Real Beer Week brews celebrating the Queens punk rockers. It’s a […]

Director David Lynch Now Sells His Own Coffee

Have you ever had that dream where you’re drinking coffee in a red-curtained room and a backward-speaking dwarf starts dancing to dreamy sax for no discernible reason whatsoever? Sometimes dreams do come true! Sort of. The outré Twin Peaks director David Lynch is now selling his own coffee — an organic house blend, organic espresso […]

Not everyone can make it to San Diego and pay homage to Wolverine at Comic Con, so Cooking Channel is celebrating the food people way — with an easy hero recipe you can make at home.
