Help! Every restaurant is booked up and I blame Millennials

Here’s a kitchen confession I think it’s time to make. Before lockdown last year I had never used a food delivery app. Not even once.

I was so clueless that when I saw the TV adverts with all the different bags of Chinese, Indian and Italian food being delivered, I genuinely thought you could order them all at once and they would be brought together. I know, right?

Fast forward a year of getting heartily bored of my own cooking and I am, if not quite fluent in JustEat, at least capable of finding my way round an online menu.

Like in prison or boarding school, staying home to save lives made eating the focus of every day. Much has already been written about the damnable curse of family lunches; a lovely, leisurely highlight if you’re renting a villa on Sardinia and browsing the morning catch on the village jetty.

ATL Music Lunch Club meets at Bo Bo Garden

Thankfully, at my first few club meetings, I got to experience the extraordinary storytelling of local music legend Bruce Hampton, before he died onstage at the Fox Theatre during his 70th birthday concert.

The lunch group actually dates back about 20 years, to when Hampton and former Capricorn Records exec Dick Wooley would meet for lunch. Gradually, others started to tag along.

Add comma separated checklist of components to include in recipe. Chef Andy Kao develops The Original Orange Rooster® entree for Panda Specific.

Sure, I utterly modified the recipe, however I wished to review it anyway to precise my appreciation for the concept. I made one serving and simply eyeballed the amounts of components to my choice. I used russett potatoes, parmesan, margarine, and milk. I boiled the garlic together with the potatoes, which resulted in a loss of all garlic flavour. Subsequent time I will strive oven roasting … Read More

5 Most Controversial Fast-Food Items Ever Created

When fast-food companies get bad press, it’s often due to their own marketing efforts backfiring. Burger King’s tone-deaf International Women’s Day tweet is a striking recent example. The McDonald’s “#McDStories” campaign created the opposite of a feel-good response in a similar fashion when a 2018 Twitter campaign meant to promote McDonald’s farmers prompted the sharing of negative stories about the brand instead. Even Wendy’s once tweeted a dubious Pepe the Frog meme. Putting the proverbial foot in the mouth is practically a tradition with fast-food brands.

Sometimes, however, it’s not the ads but the food itself that causes controversy, and the backlash in such cases can be more severe. The “all press is good press” saying doesn’t quite hold up in the restaurant industry when the press is about menu items falling short of expectations or worse, causing digestive issues.

Here’s a look at some of the most
