This week's guest editor at Food52 was Yotam Ottolenghi, which of course was going to mean some good recipes, but still I was blindsided by this cake. That cake is now the only food I'm willing to accept from now until whenever I get to eat that cake. (But if you're still open to non-cake edibles, you might also want to check out the recipes Rich and Kate from Vedge shared during their own stint as guest editors a couple of weeks ago.)
Serious Eats compiled their eight Favorite Wacky Ramen Commercials here—which, if you crunch the numbers, means that there are way more than eight "wacky ramen commercials" out there. I was fine not knowing that, and I think I'll be fine not experiencing the rest of them moving forward, but I am a little bit glad I saw the Nissin Cheese Alien.
This Scientific American article, Eating Dirt: The Benefits of Being (Relatively) Filthy, is kind of a tough sell—a little because it's called that; a lot because you don't get halfway through the first paragraph before running headfirst into the phrase "fecal-oral transmission route." Try to power through, though (and click through to all the cited materials!), because the look at various ways in which hygiene can help and harm us is pretty fascinating.
