Bagel Improv Sundae

“The most creative and inventive snacks are the result of mastering the art of improv” – me quoting me! Read the article I wrote for The Kitchn. The improv snack pictured is a bagel sundae topped with hot fudge, caramel sauce, popcorn, Raisinettes, whipped cream, cherries and of course sprinkles. There are also links to two original recipes I developed for The Kitchn’s Snack Week.

Fair Food II

May 26, 2012

 

My favorite fair food has all the qualities of a carnival freak show. It has elements of the unexpected; it’s bigger and weirder than the food I see everyday; and it evokes awe and borderline disgust. The more absurd the better. This is my second year documenting the food at my county fair, and even though some of the food wasn’t as over the top as I would have liked, I still found it all pretty intriguing. Here are a few photos:
