foodpod

The Foodpod is a modern silicone cooking tool designed to save time when boiling, blanching or steaming by conveniently containing, removing and draining foods like eggs, veggies, shellfish and more in one easy-to-use vessel. Saves time and water when preparing a meal, keeps foods together for easy removal and even cooking and acts as a strainer, reserving the cooking liquid. Easily holds up to a dozen large eggs or several heads of broccoli. Built-in grip clip allows for convenient removal from water. Simply place foods in the Foodpod and put in water to cook. Lift from water, let drain. Remove and enjoy!

rotating kitchen

I’ve always wondered what our kitchen would look like if I’d turn it upside down. Given G is a kitchen designer, I am sure this will make him chuckle.

Mix My Granola

mixmygraonla

Being swiss, I am a lover of all things Muesli/Granola. I was excited to discover MixMyGranola, a service that let’s you customize your very own Granola mix. Here’s how it works: First choose one of the four granolas. Then continue on to their large selection of fruits, nuts, seeds, and extras to create a mix the way you like it. And voila, the cool tube shaped container is then being shipped right to your house. What’s not to love?

rhubarb

rhubarb

Chris Glass did some ‘rhubarb’ wiki’ing and found these uncited tidbits about the stalky red vegetable:

It is or was common for a crowd of extras in acting to shout the word “rhubarb” repeatedly and in an unsynchronised manner, to cause the effect of general hubbub. As a result, the word “rhubarb” sometimes is used to mean “length of superfluous text in speaking or writing”, or a general term to refer to irrelevant chatter by chorus or extra actors. The American equivalent is walla. Stage actors in the United States also use word “rhubarb” repeated asynchronously in a low or murmured tone to provide background voice ambience in crowd or party scenes. A variation of this is the repetition of the phrase “peas and carrots”

While this Funky Food Gallery is highly amusing, I am not sure it would do the trick and coax our little one into eating. (I particularly love the space shuttle and sheep. Ha!)

Can you grill a bratwurst?

bratwurst_iPhone_app

Now here’s a completely useless but *highly* entertaining iPhone App that was just released by Bell, a big swiss butcher chain. The app basically let’s you BBQ a bratwurst in real time. By blowing into the microphone you increase the BBQ fire/heat. Two thumbs up for originality to the crew over at ROD communications. Made me laugh (and hungry).

Download the App here over at iTunes.
