Caffeinated Beef Jerky

I have long wondered what was missing from beef jerky.  It has the vital texture, proper salt content, occasionally some teriyaki, lots of proteins.  Sometimes it takes thinking outside of the artificial tubular casing to see what should have been obvious from the start.

Caffeine! CAFFEINE1!!1

Perky Jerky

Well done, lads.

Making an omelette inside an eggshell

It’s a somewhat primitive method (Austin and I hard-boil the egg, remove the shell with a dremel, decoagulate the egg white and yolk separately with a proprietary unbinding formula, make whatever omelette we desire, repackage and compact in a stainless mold made from the original shell, then reattach the two halves of the original shell with plastic surgery-grade epoxy) but for the home chef this seems quite approachable:

Omelette by injection

Of course we applaud ingenuity in whatever form it comes.  Now if they’d done this with hummingbird eggs we might be impressed.

Now that's an egg.

Robert Parker is an idiot

Never, never NEVER do a blind tasting without cheating!  Especially of things that you’ve tasted and rated before, using an elaborate point system, and when you’re the world’s foremost authority!

My old nemesis, Dr. Nathan Myhrvold, has been stealing my secrets and is now publishing a book!  The gall!  The sheer nerve of the man!

Serious Eats has an interesting article here:

I recently purchased a commercial product at Wegman’s:

The first example is, obviously, not vegetarian.  The second, believe it or not, *is*.  I am going to try to form it back into a bacony shape and make crisps to put on my marmite/blue cheese breakfast sammich.
