A new App from an food focused Argentinian start-up is giving cooks, both professionals and ambitious amateurs, an innovative way to mingle.
CookApp in action: Two Argentinian chefs prepare dinner for guests in their home in Buenos Aires on April 12. 2014.
CookApp is a new social network aimed at the burgeoning ‘pop-up’ restaurant ethic, allowing ambitious and innovative cooks access to a much wider swath beyond their family and friends for potential clients and future fans. With a rating system for chefs, and “donations” up front to cover the cost of product, CookApp can minimize the risk for chefs by eliminating the need to rent a space, advertise, & worrying about no-shows.
Guests getting the “silverware will be counted” lecture.
As it says in it’s tagline, CookApp promises to let members “meet & eat”. Check out what they are up to at CookApp and if NYC goes as well as Buenos Aires did, maybe we will get it in the G.T.A.! ( after the Bay Area, and Boston, AND… well, you get the idea)
During my Sunday night ritual of waiting for Game of Thrones to downloa….. I mean, air on television, I saw this fun little article about chefs, restaurants and even brewers in New York joining in on the excitement and fun of the HBO series.
The only thing more dead than the mutton in that bowl are Cersei’s eyes.
I think the main take away for everyone that reads the article is the phrase “Game meat is coming back into style.” If everyone could adhere to that, we would sincerely appreciate it!
In case the piece of cheese you ate of the floor yesterday was keeping you up night, rejoice! Or at least relax a little bit… Some Biology students at the University of Birmingham tested several foods to see how they fared in “bacteria transfer”
Table Bagel: Safer than Floor Bagel.
Even though some foods fared better than others, it’s probably always safer to not eat that freshly buttered bagel you dropped in the Food Court, but you can make your own judgements after reading all about it!

Late this month, an Emu escaped from it’s farm and made a break for the dense forest outside of Nanimo on British Columbia’s Vancouver Island. The inappropriately named Lucy is a 16 year old male emu who broke out of his enclosure and had been spotted several times enjoying sweet,sweet freedom in Nanimo’s Northwest side.
Of course, a Twitter account appeared shortly after, and Lucy quickly became somewhat of a local celebrity.
Due to reports of deep, low growls, it is thought that Lucy made himself a bit of hideout somewhere along Jingle Pot Road, somewhat ironic considering that emu is amongst the tastiest of game species being raised in Canada. Since their growling is most often compared to a cougar’s, the below graphic might just help someone figure out what could be out woods…
In case anyone was actually concerned for Lucy’s well-being while loose on an island chock-full of bears, cougars, and more bears, Lucy was safely apprehended after nearly a week on the lamb and returned home.
