Shark On A Plate

by Nicholas Bostick

In the wake of sharknados and this year’s controversial  shark week, It might be safe to say that summer 2013, was the summer we all stopped giving a shit about sharks. They’re big, they’re scary, they make perfect source material for ‘80’s type businessman analogies, we get it. It’s easy to feel insignificant after watching hours of T.V. gold like “Voodoo Sharks,” “Alien Sharks” or the ambiguously titled (and possible sequel to ‘The Great White Hope’?) “Great White Serial Killer.” Let us not forget brothers and sisters, we’re the tippy-top of the food chain.

So we’ll clean our mental palates with a look at a few local delicacies’, staring our forward minded fish friends. You’re gonna’ need a bigger plate.   Continue reading

Experts however, disagree.  Channel 8 meteorologist Pete Delkus tweeted his concern for our collective doom, and he’s on TV. Every. Day. Continue reading

Crave Stuff To Enjoy While Reading Crave

by Steven Doyle

Pegasus News and FW Star Telegram food critic Teresa Gubbins sends us word that there is a new product we might want to investigate. She sent over a link to the Dallas Morning News where they actually reviewed a new breakfast cereal called Krave.

News writer Jeffrey Weiss didn’t care much for the new cereal being test marketed in North Texas, using words like ‘sawdust’ and ‘cold, fibrous mush’ to describe a bowl he prepared for himself. At one point he even threw out the most oft used culinary term ‘Yuck-o’, so we are thinking the near-namesake cold cereal is not going to be high on our shopping list for the craveDFW test kitchens.   Continue reading

Mister Ed Says “Eat Me”

by Steven Doyle

Through out the world horses are a general source of meat. In Parma you may find pesto di cavallo, or a horse meat tartare, on the menu. In Austria you may find a type of bologna called Leberkäse, which sometimes can be made with horse, sold at hot dog stands. In China you may find a Donkey Burger on the menu, and in Japan it is common to see raw horse meat called basash which is thinly sliced and eaten raw.

In English speaking countries such as the United States, UK, Canada and Australia eating horse is taboo, but you just might start seeing Trigger or Mister Ed show up on your dinner table soon as it is now legal to slaughter horses for a source of food in the United States.  Continue reading

Yes Virginia, There Really is a Pie Council

by Steven Doyle

We just ran through some of our favorite pies in celebration of at least one National Pie Day celebration. While gathering facts for the story we ran across something called the Pie Council. We wanted to find out who was behind such an organization, and it appears to be insane pie enthusiasts. What a wonderful career to have… pie enthusiast.

They seem to be backed by large corporations such as Crisco, the basis for any good pie in America today.   Continue reading
