Sep 15, 2014 3:00 pm

On Friday word hit the comedy news wires that Saturday Night Live had hired comedian Michael Che to join its cast, and team with Colin Jost behind the anchor desk on its long-running "Weekend Update" segment.

Crucial Food Quiz: Opera Or Stinky Cheese?

You know Carmen from Camembert. It gets harder.
Sep 15, 2014 1:00 pm

Classic FM is a public radio station in the United Kingdom, broadcasting enough Rachmaninov and Verdi hits to shake a conductor wand at. It’s not our typical listening fare, but we took notice this morning when we discovered one of their brilliantly (insert London accent) mind-bending quiz: Opera or Stinky Cheese. Do you know your Mascagni from your Mascarpone?

Photos Of New Yorkers Eating Alone At Home Is Not As Depressing As It Sounds

In fact, solo dining is a growing trend
Sep 15, 2014 11:00 am

Four years ago photographer Miho Aikawa set out to capture the essence of the home dining culture in New York City.  The series of portraits, shot with an honest, fly-on-the-wall aesthetic, aimed to show that urban diners — more often than not — take meals solo, while surrounded with flickering screens (mobile phones, televisions and computers mainly). It’s a fascinating study, revealing how a graduate student from Belgium eats a salad at home after a late-evening class on the Upper East Side, or a distracted Brooklyn teenager picks at a bowl of her father’s fettuccini.

Sep 15, 2014 9:00 am

It's basic science: hot peppers need heat, and America's concrete jungles attract plenty of that New York City, especially. Chris Shott examines why urban rooftop gardeners are so intensely proud of their intensely good peppers.

Our 12 Most Popular Stories This Week

Burritos, pretzel poutine, marijuana cooking, D.C.
Sep 12, 2014 4:00 pm

Pop a pot brownie for this week's top stories. Or maybe just that one story where Vogue food critic Jeffrey Steingarten proved to be a lightweight, then, somewhat predictably, provided too much detail at all the wrong parts of the experience. We lived vicariously through Alex Guarnaschelli's summer travels, prepared ourselves for fall restaurant openings and drank a lot of the incredible hot chocolate that's going to power us through the next 8 or so months. Also, poutine. Our most popular stories, right this way.
