The cough drops are probably made with foraged medicinal greens, rare turquoise berries and fermented skate placenta, so pick up a box and get right back to business.

Husk Cheeseburger

When Sean Brock opened Husk in Charleston in 2010, he knew we had to have a cheeseburger on the menu. That was simple. What wasn’t was figuring out what that burger should be.

The Scout Waterhouse & Kitchen in Chicago's South Loop has long loaves of brioche and isn't afraid to cut them lengthwise for the mammoth sandwich they call the Foot-Long Triple Cheese. It contains nine slices of cheese (American, muenster and cheddar, all made in Wisconsin) and comes with short rib if you so desire. Pair it with a Goose Island Endless IPA for the grown-up after-school snack we've all been dreaming of.

There Is Now A Third Use For Condoms! Thanks, Japanese Cookbook!

"Condom Meals I Want To Make For You." Great.
Sep 25, 2014 11:00 am

This new cookbook out of Japan is awesome while also being equally gross (and more than likely a joke). Not even the most enthusiastic safe sex advocate is going to stuff sushi fixins into a poor defenseless rubber and present it to their love — that is the opposite of the customarily romantic gesture of a home-cooked meal. See for yourself.
