Food Ikea Has Been Quietly Working on Bug Meatballs and Beetle Burgers
Burger King trolls McDonald's with fiery holiday gift
The Whopper chain, known for its flame broiled-burgers, "gifted" McDonald's with real flames for the holidays.In the hyper-competitive fast food marketplace, chains are constantly trying to best each other with new, over-the-top foods, discount dining deals, and, occasionally, a little social media shade.
Ikea meatballs have truly come full circle: They wentin 2014, then in 2015, and now they’re back to meat again, only it’s from … . Last year, the company after realizing that almost a third of its shoppers were visiting stores only to eat in the cafeteria, and even announced a in Copenhagen known as , which was working to develop a modern, sustainable menu. Well, Space10 has of sorts on Medium, and the Noma–meets–Silicon Valley dishes they’ve concocted are a far cry from Sjoräpport salmon fillets.
Olive Garden’s Huge New Meatball Pizza Bowl Comes Loaded With 10 Meatballs
Olive Garden Adds Meatball Pizza Bowl to Lunch Duos Menu
The post lists five traditional dishes “reimagined” for people to consume in a “not-too-distant” future. The so-called “Neatball” is Ikea’s tweak to its menu mainstay, and it comes in two types aimed at reducing Earth’s meat consumption: a mealworm version, and another that uses beets, carrots, and parsnips. To keep at least one aspect of the dish traditional, Space10 still serves the little orbs with mashed potatoes, gravy, and lingonberry sauce.
Next, there’s the “Dogless Hotdog,” kind of like a Chicago dog for vegans, cranked up to an 11. Instead of a frank, you get a glazed dried carrot, stem and all. Toppings include a beet-berry ketchup, cream made from mustard and turmeric, roasted onions, cucumbers, and an herb-salad mix. You’ll notice the bun is a strong shade of green: It’s made from spirulina — a blue-green microalgae that’s exceptionally nutrient-dense (it’s got more protein than an entire standard hot dog).
How to Become a Burger Scholar
<p>Apply within if you want your life tocompletely revolvearound burgers.</p>Don't worry: You're not alone. You're wondering what a burger scholar is, too? “It's OK,” says George Motz, the force behind TV series Burger Land and the documentary Hamburger America, and a self-proclaimed burger scholar. “I’m still scratching my head,” he admits.
Up third, there’s the “Bug Burger,” which is pretty self-explanatory: A burger whose patty is four-fifths root vegetable, and one-fifthlarva. It comes topped with relish, that same beet-berry ketchup, a chive spread, and some greens.
The fourth dish is a salad that sounds like it might be from Sweetgreen (a mix of, say, sorrel, broccoli, and tarragon; or pea sprouts, radish, and thyme), except that everything was grown hydroponically in a glass box in Ikea’s basement. Each one gets a basil-tarragon-lemon-balm dressing, and to eliminate food waste, the croutons on top are made from leftover bread.
And for dessert, there’s finally something more exciting than Swedish apple cake, though you may balk at the texture: microgreen ice cream. To whip this up, they mix herbs from the underground garden (fennel, coriander, basil, or mint) into an agar-carob-starch base with some sugar, lemon juice, and apple, to yield a product apparently resembling this:
Invasive beetle threatens Japan's famed cherry blossoms
Across Japan's capital, delicate pink and white cherry blossoms are emerging, but the famed blooms are facing a potentially mortal enemy, experts say: an invasive foreign beetle. The alien invader is aromia bungii, otherwise known as the red-necked longhorn beetle, which is native to China, Taiwan, the Korean peninsula and northern Vietnam. The beetles live inside cherry and plum trees, stripping them of their bark. In serious cases, an infestation can kill a tree, and experts are sounding the alarm.
