Pure Food and Wine Signature Dishes Reviewed. While watching Bad Vegan, I had to wonder whether Sarma Melngailis’s lasagna was as bad as her decisions. In case you’ve been dead all week, Bad Vegan is a four-part Netflix series that chronicles a scam pulled on star restauranteur Melngailis by her former boyfriend, Anthony Strangis. While providing a sketchy portrait of his life, Strangis elbowed his way into Melngailis’s businesses of the raw vegan New York restaurant Pure Food and Wine and its takeaway sister shop One Lucky Duck. He also extracted nearly $2 million from her, as a test of her loyalty, with promises that she’d be paid back and then some. (Spoiler alert: She wasn’t.) Early on in the doc, someone mentions the signature dish of Pure (which shuttered in 2015), a raw vegan lasagna. I should explain my biases/habits further: I don’t like the term but for the sake of brevity, I’m a pescatarian.

It’s bad enough not being able to decide whether to serve a cake or a pie, but which kind of cake or pie? One of the new stadium treats offered by the Atlanta Braves is the Burgerizza. Hayley Parker at the website The Domestic Rebel made a pie out of glazed doughnut holes. Kyle Marcoux, also known as the Vulgar Chef, created a North American fusion dish that’s not quite Mexican and not quite Canadian, but should appeal to the USA.

Here’s How to Make Deep Fried Water. Absolutely everything has gotten the deep fried treatment these days. So what about deep-frying absolutely nothing? That’s essentially what YouTuber Jonathan Marcus achieved when he decided to deep fry water. If the idea sounds dumb, you’re right, and not just because it’s conceptually silly, but because frying water has the potential to go horribly wrong. As the video description points out, “If water leaks out while the sphere is frying in hot oil, it may explode sending scalding oil everywhere,” meaning this project is “potentially very dangerous.” Related: HOW TO DEEP-FRY CADBURY EGGS Still, our bearded culinary adventurer says he pulled off his attempt at deep-frying water on his first try. Once he perfected the process, he apparently made a dozen deep fried waters and fittingly served them at the “Stupid Shit No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon 2.0” in San Francisco.

Good Steak Is Worth It The first and most important step in cooking a great steak is to buy a great steak. The best way to do this is to go to a local butcher, preferably one who either raises the animals himself or sources them from a local farm, or find a store that sources sustainably and humanely raised meat. Besides being a more ethical buying choice, this meat is usually of better quality and tastes significantly better.
