Back for another installment here is your weekly food round up. We’re sorry for the lengthy delay, technical issues have put this blog on hold. Unlike a 2 star hygiene rated chicken restaurant, we’re back!
1) A Chip Off the Old Bloc
Just when you thought the nanny state was already telling us how to live our lives, the Guardian has decided they were going to do one better and tell us all how we should eat chips. I like mine with seasoning and hot, just in case you were wondering.
2) Seeing is Beer-lieving, Welcome to Oktoberfest
Yes yes, we’ve been away, but the world of food goes on, and September was the start of the festival with Oktober in the title. What crazy madness is this? Bavarian drinking games are put on hold in this fifteen day period, for good reason too. Welcome to Oktoberfest!
3) Honey, I’m Home…
We apologise for the puns… Restricted to runny honey? Thought of the viral combating Manuka honey? How about a honey that has all the potential to actually kill you? (Admittedly, that would be the last type of honey we buy) Well, we’re in luck, honey, which in Eatosi’s humble opinion, amazing, is finally showing that the golden sweet stuff deserves its own special place!
4) Food Robot Created By Ex-PM to Test Thai Food
When you are a former Prime Minister of a major Asian economy there is one thing that plagues the mind… “what’s in my food?” So instead of asking the chef, which seems reasonable, the Ex-PM, Yingluck Shinawatra has developed a robot to identify food and flavours. Does anyone else think that retirement could mean a lot of time on the hands?
5) Farting Over Again
Launch a product that effectively removes the need to chew food ever again. Make sure you give it a scientific sounding name. Forget about flatulence as a side effect and carry on as usual. If we were launching a product, this is what we would do, but if you’re a major company looking to change the face of food, farting can be the silent, but violent killer.
