I’m writing this seated on a plane heading to San Francisco. We’ve been in the air for under an hour, and the drink cart is just starting to make its way down the aisle. As the cart rolls nearer I’m forced to decide what drink I’ll be having. Since the cups are minuscule, and the liquid is largely displaced by ice cubes if one’s not quick enough to add “no ice, please” to the order, the decision is critical.
Foursquare tracked people’s tastes across America to come up with a very interesting way to determine the uniqueness of taste: they mined their user data to figure out which food or drink was disproportionately popular in each state. So this map doesn’t show what’s the most popular item in each state, but what item is most uniquely popular in each state (in relation to other places).

Video: You don’t have to tell me you were wondering what happens when you dunk an apple in liquid nitrogen and smash it with an 37kg weight. So were we.

Though it’s not unusual for eateries to place plenty of importance on presentation (“we eat with our eyes first”, and all that), the rise of amateur food photographers means that one US restaurant chain has now admitted that it actively designs dishes based on how good they will look on Instagram.
My eyes mislead me. Even though this photo looks so perfect that it must be CGI or digitally manipulated, it’s completely real. Artists Lernert and Sander took raw food — you can see meat and seafood and fruits and vegetables — and cut them into perfectly identical cubes and laid them out to form a perfect grid. Perfect!
There’s something really gorgeous (seriously, not a joke) about making mozzarella. The sheen of the cheese, the perfect shape of the mozz balls, the milky water, the look of the texture, the imagination of it when it’s done. It’s a really beautiful cheese. Here’s how artisanal mozzarella is made in Italy.
