The Friday Five – December 17th, 2010

17 12 2010

A weekly round up food and drink-related news stories:

1.  If you’ve already started thinking about eating healthier in 2011, you can start by avoiding these Worst Foods in America.  One of the dishes has more than 2,700 calories per serving! Yikes. (Yahoo)

2.  The last days of Kodachrome film are upon us.  Check out a retro styled holiday meal to celebrate the end of an era: The Last Kodachrome Christmas. (

3.  Barney’s department store in New York has unveiled their annual holiday window and this year’s theme is the Food Network.  I’m not sure what is more nightmare-inducing: a mock-up of Mario Batali’s severed head or the fact that he is surrounded by his signature orange Crocs. (The Village Voice)

4.  If you’ve spent any time on food-related internet forums, you’ve likely heard about Sandra Lee’s infamous Kwanzaa Cake (if you haven’t, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with it – it’s hilariously awful). However, it turns out the real story of where the recipe came from goes beyond Ms. Lee’s talents.  It takes a brave woman to own up to that… (Huffington Post)

5.  If the forecast calls for snow, why not make ice cream! However, given how filthy the snow is near my house, I don’t know if I would try it in the city (and be sure to steer clear of any yellow snow!) (Eatocracy)

Have a great weekend!

The Friday Five will return on January 7th, 2011.
