Lacking culinary inspiration at the moment, so I thought I’d share some interesting foodie tidbits from around the web this month:
Confused by the elaborate menu at your local sushi restaurant? Become a Japanese food expert with this handy list of sushi types and interesting information you can drop in to conversation to impress your friends (who knew ‘gunkan’ meant ‘battleship’?!)
This has been a great reference while I’ve been following The Fast Diet. Visualising how many calories are in that snack you’re coveting is a great way to keep track!
This one’s a little heart-wrenching – photographer James Reynolds shopt a photographic advertising campaign for Amnesty International featuring the last meals of innocent men on death row.
Summertime in London and there’s new restaurants and bars popping up EVERYWHERE.
Renowned chef Ferran Adrià from the Catalan coast’s elBulli restaurant has put together an exhibition that explores the relationship between art and food.
Adrià said of the Somerset House show: “Even though the restaurant of elBulli is now closed, the spirit of elBulli is still very much alive and this exhibition is one of the ways of keeping it so. For some, I hope it will revive good memories, and for others it will give a flavour of a fine dining experience like no other. Overall, it is an ode to the creativity, imagination, innovation, talent and teamwork of everyone at elBulli, but especially the world-famous chefs who trained with us and took these values into their own restaurants around the world.”
