Seeing as how we already have a pizza museum here, it might be more trouble than it's worth to head up to NYC to catch a pizza art exhibit at the brand new Marlborough Broome Street. Still, this write-up of the show from Smithsonian mag's Food & Think blog may make you reconsider. At the very least, I think we can all appreciate a piece of art whose medium is listed as "pizza on pizza in artist-made pizza box."
"The Problems with Cinnabon's New Salted Caramel Center of the Roll Start with the Name," says Serious Eats in a post that is great but also alarming, because yikes, why have there been so many articles written about Cinnabon lately? Based on all available evidence (i.e., the fact that I sometimes used to smell Cinnabons at Market East but can't recall having smelled them there for a while now), I was among those that thought Cinnabon had ceased to exist. Not only was I wrong, but now they sell rolls (I would've guessed Bons) pre-cut up into little pieces—just like my mom used to do with fried eggs on toast when I was in kindergarten! Why cut or tear your food into manageable pieces if someone else will do it for you? This is America, goddammit!
This round-up of fake foods from First We Feast runs the gamut from low-level 'scams' (e.g., stuff labeled "Parmesan" in the U.S. bears little if any resemblance to Parmigiano-Reggiano) to genuinely weird cons like "chicken eggs" formed of wax and resin. Warning: some of them are markedly more gross. One to add to the list: remember earlier this year when walnuts were being sold in China that were really just shells glued back together around concrete and rocks?
