Annotated Chicken Slaughter

Our farmer friend culled his flock of chickens and we went out to help. I wrote up a description of how to turn a live chicken in to something resembling what you would pick up at the supermarket. Content warning: includes descriptions of killing and processing chickens. Photos are mostly gore-free but may not be appropriate for everyone.

Eat Everywhere (smartphone app)

I'm part of a team that just released a unique, pretty amazing food app (iOS and Android). It's called Eat Everywhere, created by Chowhound founder Jim Leff (though tons of us worked on it). It covers virtually every cuisine, offering pragmatic, quick, witty advice on how and what to order, and experience things like an insider. Great while traveling, as well as for eating in ethnic restaurants near home. Great for newbies who've always hesitated about strolling into the local Jamaican take-out, but also great for filling gaps for experts (also: calligraphs to show waiters in Chinese regional restaurants, etc. etc.). Here's Leff's launching statement, and the app's web page is linked above. [more inside]

Cookbook Title Generator

Today's bestselling cookbooks can seem a little formulaic. The titles start to sound the same. The success of one book begets sequels, riffs and shameless wannabes. With such nakedly formulaic titles, couldn't you assemble a cookbook title by slapping together some diet buzzwords, food trends and publishing tropes? Why, yes you could!

The I Eat Food Survey

I made a survey using Google Forms to try and gain some insight into the eating preferences of Internet people. Results are available at the end! It's kind of silly and apparently some folks have enjoyed taking it. I solemnly promise the data won't be sold to a horrible marketing firm.

HOW many eggs?

So, my friend and I, (both librarians and enthusiastic eaters) who did a previous food-related project, have a new one where we make things we've always wanted to eat from our favorite books. We are far from the first to have this idea, but we get kind of intense about it. [more inside]

The Fridge app: save food, save money (with app video)

I've finally released an iPhone app I've been working on for four years: The Fridge. It's made to help you remember about your perishable foods so they don't go to waste. It has some unique UI elements that (I hope) are interesting. And of course, it comes with a demo video, but not a usual one (absolutely no soft ukulele music). [more inside]

Culture Kitchen

I was perturbed by the rising xenophobia (or at least, anti-immigrant sentiment) in my city-state of Singapore. I decide to start a series of events celebrating the food and art of our many communities. The idea is to put people who wouldn't typically find themselves in the same room, much less at the same dinner table, in the same place and feed them great food. In the first instalment, we had Bangladeshis and South Indians, mostly construction workers, come to have biryani with Singaporeans and white collar residents/expats. In the second, we had walking tours of Little Myanmar, showcased all of the culinary highlights of the country, and also showed a great little film from indie Myanmar filmmakers. Of course it's debatable really how much of an impact this can really have on policy, but my hope is that we can at least start conversations and friendships.

OnlyTheBestRecipes.com

Most Recipes are Rated 4 or 5 Stars. This is my attempt for finding the Best of the Best. I have a large (~1 million recipes) database of recipes and ratings from popular recipe websites. Most recipes are rated a 4.5-5 on average, and most site encourage these high ratings. This makes it hard to distinguish between good and great recipes. I made a website that that takes the top 1% most highly rated recipes from each website in my database. [more inside]

Offbeat Eats, v3

You last read about Offbeat Eats, my food blog, back in early 2011. On that site, I track the interesting places I've eaten, mostly so that other travelers can find some of the more obscure places I've enjoyed. Since then, the blog has continued to grow (it's over doubled in size), and with it more than a few growing pains on the backend as various things didn't scale well. Since I've been stuck at home waiting for a kidney stone issue to resolve, this was finally a time to resolve it. Mostly based upon feedback from my earlier post, I've migrated it to the newest Google Maps API (faster), implemented map autozooming (cooler), and implemented marker clustering to reduce clutter on most of the maps (which were starting to look like the dartboard at an old bar with too many pins on them). I'm looking for more feedback and ideas.

How to Shoot a Wolf

MFK Fisher's 'How to Cook a Wolf' was a masterpiece of food writing that explored the time of food rations during WW2 (related, related). We set out create a photo series that would capture the tone and atmosphere of the book and to explore that kind of hunger - going from comfortable fulfillment to a forced cutting back. Photographed recipes include sardine pie, tomato soup cake, chicken foot soup, and ladyslipper tea, along with moldy cheese, pigeons, and frogs. Delicious. This is our 5th in a series (previously, previously, previously).

Only the Best Recipes

A collection of the top recipes based on user reviews. I wanted a recipe site where I knew everything on it would be tested and delicious, so I took less than 1% of the recipes from sites like epicurious, foodnetwork, etc and made them searchable by keyword and ingredient.

Offbeat Eats

Since late 2005, I've been tracking some of the more interesting places I've eaten, mostly so that other travelers can find some of the more obscure places I've enjoyed. The latest effort has been porting the whole thing to wordpress and getting full geotagging working so that you can easily see my places by category and map. Feedback wanted, since I'm trying to make this sight actually useful to people.

Contropastasciutta

FT Marinetti's 1932 'Futurist Cookbook' was one big practical joke filled with bizarre dinners composed of even more bizarre recipes. The photographer, prop stylist, and food stylist all set out to recreate the not just the dishes but also the feel of the cookbook and just how radical it was at the time. This is our 3rd shoot in a series exploring hunger through photography. Previously, previously.

Objects, signs, and dictionaries

If it were still 1997, I would be out a billion dollars in domain names. But seeing as it isn't 1997, I've created three sites in three weeks. Feeding Objects is a site where people...feed objects. It's kind of in the name. Hey, I Found Your Sign is a site that encourages people to remove illegally placed business signs (we buy houses, earn cash from home) from their community. And, finally, My Dictionaric (because dictionaric.com was taken), the call-in podcast where I read the dictionary aloud until someone calls in to chat. I know, I know. I'm really raising the bar for quality internet content.
