How To Hard-Boil Eggs, For Godly Or Ungodly Purposes

Interestingly (or maybe not interestingly) (I mean, we are talking about boiled eggs, and we are gonna have to calibrate our "interesting" scale pretty generously here), hard-boiled eggs, when made properly, receive a much softer boiling than soft-boiled eggs. The "-boiled" is what confuses things: It makes you think that… » 4/19/14 1:06pm Yesterday 1:06pm

Tell Us Your Awesome/Humiliating Childhood Sports Stories

Readers! We want your childhood sports stories. Heroic ones, and embarrassing ones. The time you closed your eyes, swung from your heels, and turned the dimpled Golden Boy's best fastball into a screeching rocket for a double. The time you heaved a half-court buzzer-beater, missed the basket by 25 yards, and hit a… » 4/17/14 2:13pm Thursday 2:13pm

That's an oversimplification. Boxing's problems are myriad, and most of them have nothing to do with fight fixing. The sport was hurt by its migration to premium cable and pay-per-view, which all but eliminated its exposure to casual sports fans; elite athletes migrated to other sports that offer greater chances of… » 4/16/14 7:20pm Wednesday 7:20pm

Personally, I wouldn't do it. The merit of poaching is that it's a good way to cook delicate, mildly-flavored foods without completely overwhelming them; bacon fat is so strong that it basically negates that merit: bacon-fat-poached food is going to taste like bacon, and like nothing else. I like bacon very much, but I … » 4/16/14 10:59am Wednesday 10:59am

How To Grill A Flank Steak, The Steak For Socialists

We are Americans (no, not you, Canadians) (OK, you too, c'mon over here ya big galoots), and we like big hunks of steak*. To be precise, we like our own big hunks of steak: We like to saunter into Bob's House of Steak all bowlegged and gimlet-eyed like John Wayne and order for ourselves some great obscene wad of… » 4/12/14 1:30pm 4/12/14 1:30pm

Our Pimento Cheese Is Better Than Augusta National's

The Masters Tournament started yesterday (Go Tiger! ...oh, never mind.), and Bon Appétit's Adam Rapoport is chatting about Masters foods, and dammit, that's a perfectly good excuse to remind you that our pimento cheese karate-chops the shriveled, linen-suit-clad nards off the orange sludge they're serving at Augusta… » 4/11/14 1:39pm 4/11/14 1:39pm

Sriracha Declared A Public Nuisance; Civilization To Collapse

Ask not for whom the bell tolls, motherfuckers: It tolls for sriracha. In a unanimous, bourgeois-food-world-rocking vote Wednesday evening, the City Council of Irwindale, California declared the noxious hot-sauce fumes emitting from the town's Huy Fong Foods factory a [dun dun dun] public nuisance. » 4/10/14 12:12pm 4/10/14 12:12pm

Never Buy New Sneakers In March. Never.

These are my new shoes. I have had them for, oh, a little longer than a week. They are muddy shit, now. I tell myself that I will clean them later, but we all know that even if that does happen—even if I do not forget; even if I am not overwhelmed by the obvious futility of such an enterprise—"cleaning" will not restore… » 4/03/14 4:53pm 4/03/14 4:53pm

So You Want Cream Cheese And Fish Eggs In Your Pizza Crust, You Say

Looks like you'll have to travel to get it (and also it looks like you might be a lunatic): Pizza Hut locations in Hong Kong are now selling the uncreatively named Fish Roe Salmon Cream Cheese Pizza. As its name suggests, this is a pizza with salmon-flavored cream cheese and roe inside its crust, waiting to emerge and… » 4/03/14 3:39pm 4/03/14 3:39pm
