Christmas dinner in a can

FoodstuffEdward KiledjianComment

In August I wrote an article about fine dining in a can. It was the ultimate way to consume a 12 course meal with a can opener (link). A game retailer in the UK, called GAME, has decided that its customers are too busy to cook Christmas dinner. For this holiday season, they are offering a complete Christmas meal in a can (link).

Weird Food - What is Balut

FoodstuffEdward KiledjianComment

Balut is a fertilized egg embryo that is typically aged for 16-21 days (depending on which country you eat it in) then boiled like a hard boiled egg and eaten. It is supremely popular in the Philippines and Vietnam.

I have encountered it often in those countries but just couldn't get myself to try it. My western palate just can't stomach this.

It is such a difficult concept for us that it was even a Fear Factor even

Cola flavored Wine is here

FoodstuffEdward KiledjianComment
A French winemaker (Haussmann Famille) is about to make your wildest dreams come true by introducing Cola flavored wine. This "magical" concoction is called Rouge Sucette and is 75% wine and 25% sugar,water and cola flavoring. It contains about 9% alcohol.
Citizens of the winemaking kingdom (aka France) will be able to enjoy [or be repulsed by] this new product as soon as next month. Could this be a new club favorite, something between regular code and rum and coke?
Why would a venerable industry like the French wine industry try something this different? They need to attract a younger demographic that currently prefers beer and spirits. You may not be aware but flavored wine has already been tried before with products like Arachon which is a grapefruit flavored rosée.
