A disgusting factor which separates consuming human flesh from consuming muscle tissue of non-speaking animals is that you can’t separate eating dead humans from eating live humans. In the way that you call a baby cow “veal” or a pig “pork,” human flesh is just human flesh—you wouldn’t think about eating Dave’s…
Love is infamously hard to define. But according to the man, it is absolutely not an ingredient.
If you went back in time to 1998 and told McDonald’s team of test kitchen chefs that the new Szechuan dipping sauce they’d just created as a promotional tie-in for the Disney movie Mulan would one day have a cult-like following, they’d probably listen to you and start hoarding bottles of the stuff to make a profit.
Never let it be said that the Russian arm of Burger King doesn’t have its priorities in order.

Until recently I had reserved myself to living a life of dry toast and flavorless corn-on-the-cob, but then a one-trick kitchen gadget came along with exactly the one-trick I desperately wanted.
Researchers at MIT have developed deep-learning algorithm that can compile a list of ingredients and even recommend recipes after looking at photos of food. The artificially intelligent system still needs some fine tuning, but this tool could eventually help us learn to cook, count calories, and track our eating…
