In his outrageous attempt to “dignify a New Jersey stoner breakfast sandwich,” Josh Ozersky takes a greasy, meaty, monster of a sandwich, throws it on a rooftop grill and renames it a “Banh Mi.”
Join Ozersky on his trip to the “worst supermarket ever,” (C-Town, of course) to purchase his special ingredients of Brown ‘N’ Serve breakfast sausage, Spam, and Kraft Deli Deluxe cheese slices, among other supplies. Combining a total of six different breakfast meats, scrambled eggs, and a buttered and grilled french bread roll (the only wisp of a Banh Mi here), it would be difficult for stoners anywhere not to enjoy this “dignified” indulgence.
Enjoy the ridiculousness on this week’s Ozersky TV.
An evening of pure decadence, glamour, excess and more excess aboard a re-imagined journey that ended with laughter and satiated passengers, re-imagined by the DineTitanic Culinary Brigade, as captured by Underground Eats.
On the evening of April 14, 2012, Chefs Rob McCue, Adam C. Banks and Jonathan Cristaldi a.k.a. Jonny Cigar, set out to re-imagine the exuberant moments of a meal, served aboard the R.M.S. Titanic, before any threat of danger was perceived. The Chefs set out to elevate the ingredients of the original 1912 menu to contemporary expectations of haute cuisine. Wine Evangelist Cristaldi set out to change the course of history, no less. On April 14th, diners experienced a meal that would have been served aboard the R.M.S. Titanic had she avoided her known fate, and if according to Cristaldi, “history itself had re-calibrated to the tune of an alternative reality.”
Sitting on the fence about attending Googa Mooga? The food-drink-music-comedy festival-within-a-festival that is Extra Mooga has just been announced, and the answer is pretty clear: drop everything and get tickets now.
Confirmed for Extra Mooga are a wonderland of theme parties, like the Big Gay Ice Cream Disco, Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken Party, Marcus Samuelsson’s Harlem Renaissance Party, plus a bovine breakdown with the Meat Hook’s Tom Mylan, a whole fish breakdown with Masaharu Morimoto, cooking demonstrations with Michael Symon, molecular cocktails by Dave Arnold and a silly amount more. Joining the party will be Anthony Bourdain, April Bloomfield, Aziz Ansari, David Chang and Ruth Reichl.
And after reading this, no doubt you’ll be there, too. May 19th and 20th at Prospect Park. Full line-up and tickets here. Not convinced? This video should seal the deal.
We love when art and food combine, especially when you can also eat the art. This Sunday, April 22nd, performance artist Alison Knowles is bringing her Make a Salad installation piece to New York’s High Line. She assembles a giant salad and serves it to the public, to the beat of Mozart, a performance she first debuted in 1962 and has toured the world with.
Just how big is the salad? This clip from her Tate Modern show in 2008 shows 12 people holding the tarp into which she throws the salad ingredients – including dressing – from a balcony.
Join in this Sunday at the Chelsea Market Passage at West 15th St between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
