Author: Alex  |  Category: Food

Looking for an alternative to restaurants and fast food. Well… take a look at Super Marmite! Super Marmite is a social network that enables ordinary people who cooks too much food at home and sell their extra servings to customers nearby. Cooking for one or two has always been a challenge and not cost effective since most recipes are designed to generate four or more servings. Aiming to help minimize waste while earning home cooks a little extra cash, this social network give home cooks a way to be rewarded for their cooking efforts.

Cooks can list their food on the Super Marmite site, specifying their location and when the meal will be ready. The consumer pays a fee in exchange for the food. For those of you who are always cooking too much, this is one way other than throwing the leftovers into the bin. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection to start cooking right away.

Home Beer Brewing Kit

Author: Alex  |  Category: Food

For all beer drinkers and connoisseurs out there, this might just interest you. There is nothing better than freshly brewed beers. Those you get in restaurants and pubs are not as fresh as those which are served in microbrewery beer gardens. Baking your own cake at home is something commonly done at home but have you heard of brewing your own beer? Well… it is not that common because breweries usually take up significant amount of space. Well, a New York-based Brooklyn Brew shop came up with the idea of selling a variety of diminutive brewing kits that could easily be purchased by apartment-dwellers and others with limited quarter. The kit takes up only less than one square foot while in use. Imagine having a nice cool freshly brewed beer while sitting on your log furniture at the balcony. Wouldn’t it be a nice way to enjoy your evening?

I am sure there is a demand for such a thing. However do check first whether it is legal to do it in your own country before you purchase one.

You may heard of cooking classes but have you heard of butchery classes. Apparently there is a craze going around and there are people who actually pays for classes conducted by butchers e.g. Ryan Farr.

This butchery class are perfect for those who wants to learn how to how to produce a selection of meats ready for the oven. A team of talented of butchers will select a range of cuts for the students. Students will also have the chance to learn how to separate the different cuts from a whole chicken and then how to tackle a whole beef feather blade, where pupils learn the correct way to trim the fat from the meat and the right technique to use when cutting the perfect braising steak.

All of a sudden, the butcher in the market has become somewhat a rock star. I think I need to start something as well. Maybe a class to teach people how to squeeze their pimple as fashionable acne solution.

When you fuse food and technology together, you get a whole new dining experience. Well… a London-based restaurant did just that by launching Inamo, a pan-Asian restaurant that has gone away with the traditional printed menu.

To replace the printed menu, an illustrated menu is projected onto the diners’ touch-sensitive table where diners can select their food. Once selected, diners can use the touch-table to watch a live feed of their chefs at work.Diners can even personalize the decor of their dining booth by selecting sounds and animated, projected table ‘cloths’.

So wait no more, go to your nearest Plano dentist to get your teeth nice and shiny, put on your best suit and take your date to Inamo during Valentines.

Bananas are super delicious but they do not last very long as they ripen and turn brown too fast. However, a company by the name of Del Monte has developed a new plastic wrap for bananas that promises to more than double their shelf life by keeping out air and moisture. Currently, they are conducting trials in 27 7-eleven stores around Dallas area. This could be a major breakthrough in resolving food wastage as a result of going bad.

Time to hire business plan writers and start getting yourself a distributorship. I am sure there are many other food products that require such packaging

Pop-up Restaurant

For those who have been following my blogged, I am quite into Green innovations. Anything that has anything to do with cleaning up waste, recycling old products or alternative energy sources will get me excited.

Well…some genius has came up with the idea of using old standard shipping container as pop-up restaurants. The container transforms into a ‘chic fast food’ restaurant in 90 seconds at the touch of a button. Aptly named Müvbox, the container features a fully functional kitchen with enough space for four members of staff and a wood-fired pizza oven.

The walls of the container collapse to create a covered patio with enough room to serve 28 people, half of whom can be seated at small bistro tables. The floor is made from recycled tires and its roof contains solar panels to provide up to 40% of required energy. Fresh, high-quality local products such as lobster rolls, seafood pizza and other local lobster delicacies are for sale. Come to think of it, this idea can be applied for businesses other than food.
