Oven Mitts for your inner geek

I’ve recently being upgrading my kitchen gear, and was on the lookout for a pair of oven mitts that clearly defined me, as a person, in a humorous and quirky way. I came across these by Brazil based Bazar Design on OhGizmo, only to find that they aren’t available quite yet. Which was somewhat depressing. Still they are pretty cute. I hope they will be cheap. via...

Omurice Recipe – Simple Japanese Comfort Food...

Omurice (short for Omlette Rice) is as Japanese as you can get. It’s fairly simple food – basically tomato friend rice wrapped up in an omlette. Sometimes served with a side of meat or veggies. You usually find these in Japanese ‘family’ restaurants like Denny’s or Gusto’s. As a picky little child, when it came to meals – if it wasn’t sweets, I probably wouldn’t eat it. But one of the few savoury dishes I always wanted was Omurice. Anyway – there aren’t many places in Sydney you can get Omurice (except the new Poporo place in Chinatown that we love) but we’ll cover that next time. But really it’s not that hard to make. Here’s how its...

The Urban Cookbook – Recipes for the Graffiti Generation...

Came accross this in my favourite Sydney bookstore, Ariel, the other day. A pretty novel concept – combining two of our favourite things in the world: Art and Eating. The author put this book together over a great excuse for a trip around Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam to London and New York. His road-trip rules were to use public transport, eat street food, and stay in cheap, locally run hotels. All of which allowing him to focus on visiting underground-art-type places, people and events that are seldom covered in traditional culinary or travel titles. There’s fifty recipes including such tantalising urban dishes as:┬áJerk chicken with hot pepper gravy, Ras-el-hanout lamb, Trinchada, Potjiekos and Rajad’s perfect steak. I’m hungry...

Brilliant: Anti-Theft Lunch Bags

We rarely bring a pre-made sandwich into the DEGOURGET offices, but from our past experiences working in corporate hellholes, we understand the pain involved in losing ones midday meal to some light fingered co-worker scum. To combat this worldwide problem, Sherwood Forlee comes up with this brilliant concept. Stealing your co-worker’s lunch is a downright contemptible act, that is, if it’s perpetrated by someone other than you. But, if you’ve ever had your lunch stolen, you know the the frustration and anger it causes. You know the revenge and ill-will it inspires. And you know that no matter how well you try to hide your lunch bag at the back of the refrigerator, something’s gonna be missing when...

North Korean Denim

The Noko Jeans project has sent my imagination running wild and my jealousy levels through the roof. Run by three Swedish guys with a self-described background in PR and advertising, it’s a company set up for the purpose of making jeans in North Korea. Or as they describe it: Noko Jeans is our attempt to approach and get closer to North Korea, and it is our attempt to answer the question: is it possible to do what no one has ever done before? Is it possible to design, produce and import jeans from North Korea? They’ve got a nice little blog detailing the whole adventure called the Noko Process. You’ll find some cool videos they’ve put together like...
