What Is In Those Little 'Do Not Eat' Packets? And Can You Eat The Contents?

You know the exact ones we're talking about
Nov 11, 2014 9:00 am

Pop open a bag of beef jerky or a bottle of multivitamins and you'll come across a few of them. They’re like the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks…but without the prize part. You know the packets we’re talking about: those small white ones with some variation of “THROW AWAY” scrawled all over them. They also regularly come with a more ominous, albeit curiosity-inducing, warning: “DO NOT EAT." But what is in them exactly? And is it possible to eat their contents?

30 grams of coffee, 500 grams of water and a little tried-and-true technique will yield the best cup of coffee you ever made manually.

Symphony Eats Ghost Chilis, Attempts To Play Instruments

Classical music and hot peppers in perfect harmony
Nov 7, 2014 9:00 am

We've watched in horror as countless people take their figurative lives in their hands and chow down on something supremely spicy. You'd think members of the Danish National Chamber Orchestra with their music Ph.D's would know better than to take a ghost chili to the face before diving into an up-tempo ditty like Jacob Gade's "Tango Jalousie," but it makes for one spicy dance.

Watch Magnus Nilsson And Christian Puglisi Go Camping, Grill Serious Pork Chops

Mind of a Chef star makes camping food look good
Nov 6, 2014 4:00 pm

We’ve all been on camping trips at some point or another. And we’ve all come to associate certain foods with these trips — hot dogs, burgers, perhaps some s’mores for dessert. These are not exactly glamorous foods. Then again, two world-famous chefs were probably never part of your camping trip. When Magnus Nilsson and Christian Puglisi got together for a trip to the forest as part of The Mind of a Chef, the food was just a little bit different.

Miracle Whip Mac And Cheese: Worth A Shot?

Watch this video and tell us you wouldn't do that
Nov 5, 2014 3:30 pm

Sometimes mayonnaise can come in handy at unexpected times: mixing up great burger meat that stays moist and flavorful, for instance. Or, perhaps lesser-known, using it as a macaroni and cheese-enhancing ingredient. Enter Miracle Whip, the sandwich spread with the marketing team of a lifetime, your potential new mac and cheese-enricher. Don't worry, bacon and hot sauce are also involved. Alright, maybe worry.

We Approve Of Food Huggers: Because Vegetables Need Hugs, Not Plastic Wrap

This simple gadget hugs, extends produce's life
Nov 4, 2014 4:00 pm

Don't halfheartedly "wrap" produce in plastic wrap and assume it'll just be fine in the fridge like that. It won't. It's going to get brown and wrinkly, dry out and not inspire you to use the rest. You'll probably forget about it, remembering only when it crawls out of the fridge months later. Don't let that be your eggplant. Pick up a set of Food Huggers and show your produce you're coming back for it later. Everyone knows that relaxed eggplant makes better parm. 

Watch Estela's Ignacio Mattos Turn Cod And Potatoes Into A Surreal, Delicious Dish

A new Nowness video shows a great mind at work
Nov 3, 2014 1:00 pm

There's a reason that Estela, located right on E. Houston St. in the heart of New York City (well, up a short staircase anyway) is one of the most hyped-up restaurants of the past few years. Not just because the Obamas recently ate there or because it's become the unofficial canteen for NYC's food media, but owing to chef and co-owner Ignacio Mattos' highly nuanced spins on classic dishes. Watch him create one in this brand new video. 

Watch Adam Richman Obsess Over Tottenham Soccer, Take Over Team's TV Network

The American TV host is a diehard Spurs fan
Oct 30, 2014 1:00 pm

It’s easy to imagine Adam Richman obsessing over something. Just think back to his time as host of the ever-popular Man vs. Food series. Off screen, however, the Brooklyn native has a diverse range of interests that include being a super-fan of the English Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur. The team rewarded him last week with the chance to watch a game in person and take over their TV network. We've got the video.
