Here at BUST we love cooking shows, recipe blogs and generally anything food related, (see our Food issue out now) but honestly, this is THE BEST cooking demo EVER!! Meet the Vegan Black Metal chef as he demonstrates how to make Pad Thai, it's the best thing I've seen in a long while.
Yes he sings the entire 14 minute demo, and head bangs while the "Heat of Satan" cooks the "glorious Pad Thai!" I hope Martha Stewart invites him on her show real soon.
You need to a ... Read More

The cliché “writer meets a starlet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The starlet, usually of slim and gamine proportions, appears to thwart our expectations by ordering and consuming, with conspicuous relish, a meal that might satisfy a hungry dockworker.” New York Times writer, Jeff Gordinier points out that this situation has become oddly familiar, and it has even been coined “the documented instance of public eating” ...

I’m a wanna-be foodie; absolutely love reading food blogs and cookbooks. But as a college student I never really have the time nor the ingredients to make much of anything. That and I have a horrible habit of making things and never eating them myself. I just feed them to everyone else.So I mostly just content myself with drooling over the scrumptious food photos and recipes. Here are some of my favorite foodie blogs that are just chock full of pictures and ... Read More

Why not check out Thursdays? A recently launched website, it features crafts and recipes intended to be shared with your buddies.

Saint Cupcake's frostings and cupcakes are handmade and super fresh with no synthetic flavorings! They have lots of different flavors and even have vegan friendly varieties. There are also ... Read More

We’ve all read about or watched a movie about the terrifying processed food industry and its effects on how we live. The blame has reasonably been put on the corporations that somehow manage to produce modified “food” in record time, but the death of the family meal has been blamed for the increased need of (or addiction to) fast food. And who is to blame for the death of the family meal? Women, or specifically second-wave feminists, according to ... Read More

Here's the pitch -- a great chef who loves music creates "tour food" for his favorite indie bands. What doesn't this new IFC show have going for it? You can be the judge tonight, when Chef Sam Mason brings his culinary talents and visual splendor to the small screen's premiere episode* of "Dinner with the Band," airing at 10:30 EST.OK, I'm calling it "tour food" because I don't see pheasant actually hitting an on-the-go menu anytime soon, but who cares? It's such ... Read More
