Formula 1 Car Made of Bread

You won’t be able to drive it, but you can sure take a bite out of it.

One of the weirdest Formula 1 cars ever is on display at the Royal Plaza on Scotts, in Singapore and you can see it live until September 27. A Culinary Executive Chef led a team of 6 chefs, 2 artists, 2 technicians and 5 volunteers in an effort to create the largest bread Formula 1 car in Asia. They succeeded and the result is simply delicious.

The team from the Royal Plaza on Scotts used 15 kg of yeast, 14 liters of water, 2 kg of salt and 10800 ml of food varnish to create 1,000 loaves and 22 different kinds of bread. It took $15,000 and 549 hours of assembly work but I’m sure they’re all very proud of their achievement.

The Tasty Cooked Mice of Malawi

I knew cooked field rats were eaten in Asian countries like Thailand and Vietnam (they look very tasty too), but it seems they’re regarded as a delicacy in African countries like Malawi.

Living in one of the world’s poorest countries, the people of Malawi have to survive any way they can, so when they’re confronted with the choice of eating mice or starving to death, you can guess what they opt for.

Young children chase the “tasty” critters through the corn fields, right after the harvest, when the mice are nice and fat. To easily catch Kapuku, the most popular edible species of mice, locals set up traps throughout the fields. They fill large clay vats with water and smear them with fried corn husks. As the rats fight over the husks, some of them fall in and drown.

The mice are cooked, salted or dried, then strung on sticks and sold as delicacies. Yum!

Blue, Green and Red Beer from Japan

Leave it to the Japanese to come up with something totally weird yet not totally unpleasant. After some of the weirdest. After stuff like the  Hello-Kitty Gundam and the husband-hunting bra, Japan introduces the blue, green and red beer.

The people at the Abashiri Brewery have found a use for the icebergs that wash up on Japan’s cost every year. They’ve melted them and used the water to make the world’s first blue beer. The unusual draft looks amazing and is said to taste pretty good as well. Japanese blue beer also contains a fair amount of seaweed.

Abashiri’s green beer is also made of seaweed, as well as hops and a mixture of plants from Japan’s Siretoko peninsula. The red beer contains anthocyans, natural pigments found in plants and fruit.

Mega-Pizza

I like my pizza with rich toppings, just like everyone else I suppose,  but how much is too much?

Take this mega-pizza for example, the cook added a crazy amount of toppings, including, sausage, mushrooms, ham, shrimps, pineapple, cream-cheese, Parmesan, bacon and an egg on top. This delicacy was over 4 inches thick before going into the oven and judging by that last, delicious-looking photo, it didn’t drop too much after cooking.

I have to say I’m a big pizza fan (who isn’t, right?) and I would love to try this tasty-looking mega-pizza. Who knows, maybe I’ll try making one of my own, right after I’m finished with this stupid diet. It certainly easier to make than the meat house.

Chinese Chef Makes World’s Longest Noodle

Li Enhai, a talented cook from China, insured himself a spot in the Guinness Book of Records after  making a 2,852 meters long noodle, with just one kilogram of flour. In the photos, you can witness his noodle stretching technique, at a hotel opening, in Keshikten, northern China, on July 29.

Giant Mortadella

I have been eating Mortadella ever since I can remember and I’m not even Italian. But I never knew Mortadella can be this big.

Apparently, in Bologna and the surrounding area, the boiled sausage known as Mortadella can be as heavy as 200 kilograms. Even weirder is the fact that it’s cut into the thinnest slices, so its taste and aroma can be fully appreciated.

If that’s really the case then one of those giant Mortadellas is enough to feed the whole city.

Canned Bacon, Can You Believe It?

It’s official, everything can be canned, even the tasty bacon. So prepare to go from “ummm, bacon” to “ummm, canned bacon”.

Apparently, canned bacon isn’t as new as I thought. According to the site that sells this canned delicacy, it was popular in America, over 20 years ago. Well now it’s back, but you can only order online, you won’t be able to find it in stores any time soon.

The bacon is already sliced, cooked and packed in paper, all you have to do is open the can and stuff your face. With a shelf life of over 10 years (???) and, together with the canned cheeseburger, canned bacon makes a great meal out in the wild.

How to Cook Lasagna in Your Dishwasher

Get ready to send your cooker to the junkyard, you’re not gonna need it once you learn how to make lasagna using your dishwasher.

It’s really no big deal, just prepare your lasagna the way you normally do, cut into smaller pieces and place each of them on extra-thick aluminum foils. Wrap every piece just like you would a child’s lunch in a paper bag. Then take the lasagna pouches and place them on the bottom rack of the dishwasher. Set the machine to normal cycle and select “heated dry” and “sanitize”, for maximum heat.

Now all you have to do is wait for the dishwasher to finish and you’ll be able to enjoy a well-done lasagna, everyone’s favorite Italian dish. The best thing about this wacky way of cooking is you can wash the dirty dishes at the same time, as long as you make sure the lasagna is sealed shut.

Isn’t this great?!?

Canned Cheeseburger, Yummm!

I’m not a big fan of canned foods, not since the whole chicken in a can post, but if you like them, you’re gonna love this.

It turns out they put everything in a can these days, even cheeseburgers. Honk, a brave German dude from the Something Awful forums, decided to try this weird dish and document his experience.

Apparently, all you have to do is boil the damn thing, open the can and stuff your face. Honk tried the cheeseburger in a can and said it had a very bland taste and left him with a bitter aftertaste. It doesn’t look as bad as I imagined a canned cheeseburger would look like, but the bottom bun does look a bit soggy.

Honk says he would eat one of these things again and admits he would appreciate canned cheeseburgers more if he was serving them on top of a mountain. Let’s face it, any kind of cheeseburger is better than dry bread or power bars, even a disgusting burger.

Spaghetti and Meetbals Cake

It may look like a main course but these spaghetti and meetballs are a delicious dessert.

This odd-looking cake was served by Linda, from Ciao Chow Linda, on Father’s Day and was a big hit. She kept telling her guests to leave room for spaghetti and meetballs, when they were eating burgers, ribs and other side dishes. When she actually came out of the kitchen with what looked to be a bib plate of spaghetti and meetballs, they were speechless.

For the recipe and more photos of the spaghetti and meetballs cake, head over to Linda’s cooking blog, Ciao Chow Linda

Edible Dough Hat

Now here’s one fashion accessory the world’s fattest man, or the world’s fattest athlete would just love to have.

I tried tracing these photos to the original source to get more info, but got nowhere. I found them on a Russian photo site, but judging by the ingredients used, this tasty hat wasn’t made in Russia. Anyway, even though I wasn’t able to get any information about this edible hat, the photos pretty much speak for themselves. Congratulations to the designer/baker on a job well done!

If anyone recognizes the photos, please leave a link to the original source in a comment, so I can credit the work.

Home-Made Washing Machine Grill

What can you do with a broken washing machine? Normally just drag it out of the house and dump it somewhere for the garbage-men to pick up. But not if you need a grill…

Finally a way to put that old washing machine to good use and get some nice burgers out of it. Just look at this do-it-yourself grill I found, it’s practical and very easy to build. just go out in your backyard, tear your dirty old washing machine appart and just keep the metal drum. That, a few metal rods and some steel wire are all you’re going to need for a state-of-the art grill.

Biggest Custard Pie Fight Ever

Everybody loves a good food fight. But there’s no food fight like a pie fight.

251 children gathered at the Kidz Stuff Festival, in Horsham, southern England, to stage the biggest custard pie fight ever. The event took place on May 31 2009 with the clear goal of setting a new record for the largest custard pie fight. The current record stands at 120, but it will surely fall once the Guinness Book of Records finishes its verification.
