Opinion


A little over a year ago, I wandered down the rabbit hole of the food & beverage industry. Like any outsider, I was slightly apprehensive; but I promptly learned two things: influencers make up a large part of the marketing

Cakes are gorgeous. Cakes are delicious. And the best part? There is one for every occasion, festival, and celebration! From vibrantly lit up birthday cakes to pristine white wedding cakes. But that’s just classifying it on the outside? What about

Fast food restaurants have been changing things up in the last couple of years by attempting to add more vegetarian items to the menu to cater to vegans around the world (we’re looking at you McVegan). However, it has come

There have been some pretty, ahem, unique food trends coming to the fore in the last couple of years (we’re looking at you activated charcoal). However, this lastest trend is truely bonkers. Food & Wine reported that award-winning Chef Marco Canora

Let’s be honest, nowadays eating out isn’t so much about tasting delicious, new foods, as it is about posting that perfect shot on Instagram. However, it turns out, that even that isn’t cutting it these days, as a ‘daring’ (who

Fruits, chocolates, and cookies are all amazing in their own unique way. And when blended into a thick and creamy beverage with milk, they become even better. Now, there is flavoured milk and then there is milkshake. Both separated by a

Crispy potato chips are often romanticised with PepsiCo’s chips label ‘Lay’s‘ (unless you can afford a facnier box of deliciously stacked wafers also known as Pringles). Not only has Lay’s been giving us bags full of aromatic air to inhale

Cooking food is an art, which makes every chef on the face of this planet – even your street side food vendor – an artist. While all artists are equally valuable, there are some that have over the years and

Yesterday we gave you an option to choose between some of the world’s best celebrity chefs. The list included the crème de la crème of the kitchen with names like Wolfgang Puck, Rachael Ray and Gordon Ramsay. There were no Indian

Even though most of us have accepted Mango – especially Alphonso – as the “King Of Fruits”, the truth is that that’s false. The actual King of Fruits is the highly sought after and highly pungent smelling Durian. Such is

It’s common knowledge that drinks like scotch and beer have been primarily marketed towards men, rather than women. When you imagine a night of cigars and scotch what do you see? I see men in their dinner jackets, laughing over

Nothing defines “chill” better than a pint – or better, a crate –of chilled beer. And just as we beer-guzzlers are particular about the beverage’s temperature, most of us are picky about the brands that contribute to our beer belly.

If you’ve ever stopped to contemplate how your significant other would plan to propose (if thoughts of marriage are on the cards) we’re sure that it wouldn’t involve an avocado. However, people around the world are using avocados to mark

Dining in is the easiest way of eating out. You get that same amazing food from the same amazing restaurant, minus the stepping out, dressing up or leaving the comfortable vicinity of the couch! In a nutshell, dining in is

In what I can only assume was a throwback to the 1950’s, during an interview with Freakonomics Radio PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi made some startling assumptions about the way women snack. In the segment Nooyi mentioned how when young men

Food trends have gotten out of control. There, I said it (pretty much what everyone is thinking). The internet is a strange place, where certain ingredients become all the rage, and before you know it, it’s anyone’s guess as to

Recently, social media has been set alight after photos of a sign posted outside a dive bar in New York, Continental, went viral. The sign posted on the window clearly reads, “Sorry but if you say the word ‘literally’ inside

Let’s just get one thing straight, I do not have anything against pickles. Pair ’em up with a sandwich or as a side for your burger and you get a lovely hit of acidity that cleanses your palate. However, what

In the continual effort to stay relevant (on social media, at least) chefs, and restaurants have come out with increasingly (dare I say) bizarre hybrid foods (you cannot convince me that anyone actually thought pasta biryani was a good idea). The

Thanks to internet anonymity, it’s become fairly common for everyone to have an opinion on pretty much everything. A woman named Amy Tingle recently weighed in on Dairy Air (a play on derriere) Ice Cream Co.’s logo featuring a ‘sexy
