Aloha, Eggheads.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns (hey, I’ve actually pulled carrots there, not kidding) announces the latest fad in welcoming customers: a cured egg yolk lei! As patrons enter the restaurant, they’re greeted with the lei and directed to their seats.  Oh wait, no they’re not. The restaurant takes the cured eggs and grates them over pasta or whatever. So… why this guy (the chef) is making them into leis, who knows. But more importantly, how bad must he smell?

Other highlights from Bon Appetit’s Big Ingredients of 2014: pancakes for dinner (please don’t make pancakes into ramps, please please), bronze fennel (oh dear god) and “a shot and a beer” (i.e. Friday night).

As if books and blogs weren’t enough, foodies are now seriously being awful. A Times story today stunned us with the news that “There has been a recent rise in street corner slaughterhouses and urban animal husbandry.” JFC! and KFC! DID NO ONE READ THE JUNGLE BUT ME?
