The 7 Grossest Things The Internet Has Done To McDonald's Food

McDonald’s food is already pretty unappealing, but as a lifetime of internet consumption has taught me, the moral bottom is limitless. Here are the most repulsive secondary preparations for food ostensibly cooked by a 53-year-old clown.

The amount of “fake food” you eat annually is probably higher than you would like. And no, we’re not talking about food made from plastic.


The Amazing Contraption That Made This Impossible Burger Drop Shot Possible

How Fish Sticks Became The Food Of The Future That Nobody Asked For

As a society, our relationship with food is in constant flux. Sometimes we value efficiency in the name of feeding as many people as possible. Other times we value quality ingredients in the name of nurturing the body or soul. When the modern fish stick was invented in the 1950s, it was definitely for efficiency.

What A Star Chef's Midnight Snack Looks Like

Video: James Kenji Lopez-Alt is a chef and food writer. He’s been called the “nerd king of cooking” and he’s done plenty to earn that title.
