This Restaurant Encourages And Teaches Proper Instagramming Of Your Food

foodography-1

If you’re like any normal North American, you’ve snapped pics of your food and posted them on Instagram. Good on you, although we hope this trend dies soon. Regardless of how we feel about it, it’s interesting to note at least one restaurant is embracing the practice wholeheartedly. Israeli restaurant Catit, in partnership with Carmel Winery, have launched a project called Foodography that provides the restaurant’s patrons with special plates designed for Instagram photography. One plate is called The Limbo, and features a slot for your smartphone on one end, and a curved backdrop on the other. Another plate is called The 360 and has a rotating plate as well as a smartphone slot, to allow you to shoot short video clips. If these accessories are not enough to create the perfect shot, the restaurant occasionally invites top food photographer Dan Perez to teach some workshops on the art. The entire experience costs $155 an hour, and should run through June. Of course you’ll have to add airfare if you’re not, you know, in Israel, although Carmel Winery does have plans to expand the experience to many of its international locations.

DestapaBanana Is A Tool For Stuffing Your Bananas

destapa-banana-590x330

Ever felt like your banana was just too… healthy? Yeah, we thought so. So now that you’ve been having bananas stuffed with banana all your life, we’d like to open your eyes and turn your attention to the DestapaBanana. It appears to be a tool for boring a hole in a banana. You’re then free to fill that hole with other things that may not be quite as banana-y, like caramel, Nutella, Pop Rocks, peanuts… the sky is the limit.

To be honest, we’re not really sure this is a real product. The pictures look like a computer rendering, and we can’t seem to find where you can buy it. But we could be wrong, since this does seem like something that would be very popular among a certain demographic.

Dragon Cake Pan Must Be Ours

cake1

With Game of Thrones in full swing, everyone’s thinking of dragons. At least we are, especially when they look as delicious as the cake that comes out of the Dragon Cake Pan pictured above. I mean, if you’re going to go through the trouble of baking a cake, why not make it something to remember? Layers are good, dragons are better. The thing has a 10 1/2″ diameter and is 4″ tall, so that’s a decent sized cake. It’s $24, but could cost twice as much and we’d still consider purchasing it. It’s currently backordered, but Thinkgeek is quoting a 1-3 lead time.

Burger King Japan To Release Whopper Fragrance

burger-king-fragrance

Considering Burger King Japan will be “releasing” this on April 1st, I’m not 100% sure this information is legit and isn’t a simple Fool’s Day prank. But just in case it’s not, we’d like to inform you that for 1 day only, the burger maker will apparently be selling a little bottle of Whopper Fragrance for 5,000 yen or about $42, and it comes with a Whopper to boot. We don’t know what it actually smells like, but we sure hope it’s exactly what it sounds like. Additionally, you’ll apparently be able to purchase a Whopper Pass for $41, which gives you 30 days of Whopper meals. Considering it’s usually around $7 each, this pass is a heck of a bargain. And yes, it’s one day only. And… only if any of this is actually true.

A Pizza Oven That Looks Like A Pizza Box

pizza-oven

Other than “why not?”, we can’t think of a single reason why anyone would want a pizza oven that looks like a pizza box at first glance. But hey, as long as it makes decent pizza, right? The 1,200-Watt heating element can bring temperatures up to 525 degrees Fahrenheit, and the rotating inner dish ensures that pizzas up to 12 inches across can get baked evenly. A 30 minute timer allows you to go do something else and not worry about burning your pie. Sure, it’s a gimmick but at $48, it’s not a complete waste of money.

Game On: Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

Air Hockey Salt & Pepper Shakers

I’m sure your mom taught you not to play with your food or goof around at the dining table. But I don’t think she ever said anything about playing with condiments– specially with the salt and pepper shakers– because play is exactly what the folks behind these uber-fun S&P shakers want you to do, seeing as they’re made in the same shape and form as your typical air hockey pusher.

The added bonus? It comes with a puck so you don’t have to use biscuits or frozen slices of ham to play a round or two.

KFC UK To Offer Coffee In An Edible Cup

kfc-scoffee-cup-2

It seems KFC will be offering Seattle’s Best Coffee branded brew in a special drinking vessel soon: edible cups. That’s right, after you’re done sipping on your cup o’ Joe, you can just eat the container it came in. KFC did this by partnering up with

food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

We don’t know for how long the cups are able to keep the liquid in without leaking, but for those of you who like to sip on cold coffee throughout the day (like me), this might be a risky proposition.

The cups are being introduced to mark the launch of KFC’s Seattle’s Best Coffee across its UK branches. They aren’t ready yet, so don’t go running to your local branch just yet; the hope is that they will be by summer.

Time Locking Kitchen Container Helps You With The Cravings

time-locking-container-640x533

If you’ve gone all Cookie Monster and are looking for a way to control the cravings, while still being able to indulge once in a while, you might want to consider the ‘Kitchen Safe: Time Locking Container’. It’s a plastic container that locks up once you’ve filled it with your favourite snacks. Simply put the food in, set the timer from 1 minute to 10 days, and lock it. It won’t open until the timer runs out, and there are no overrides! The only way you’ll get to your M&Ms is by either braking the 3X-thicker-than-a-typical-container plastic walls, or going out to buy more.

This will help you with your diet, considering you’ll be able to set a reasonable timeframe when you’re full and won’t be able to change your mind once you start getting hungry again; this is, as many of you know, the typical scenario that anyone with weight control issues faces daily. The Kitchen Safe has tons of 5-star reviews and works perfectly. The batteries last between 6 to 12 months, and it stores 3.5 quarts or about 25 ounces of stuff.
