The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let F&W do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Potable Pizza: For the month of October, Pasadena’s Trattoria Neapolis is offering a Pizza Cocktail. Made with tomato water, basil-infused vodka, ghost pepper-infused vodka, porcini powder and muddled basil, the cocktail is shaken and topped with Parmesan and mozzarella foam. According to LA Weekly, the flavor is “scarily accurate” and tastes as if you dropped a slice of pizza into a Vitamix with some vodka.
BBQ Odor-Emitting iPhone App: If you don’t live in one of the country’s barbecue centers like Texas or Tennessee, you’re probably not smelling enough grilled meats. A Japanese company can fix that. The Hana Yakiniku is a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and, in conjunction with an app, emits one of three smells: ribs, buttered potatoes or cow tongue (a popular BBQ cut in Japan). Those eager to add some meaty aromas to their lives will have to wait just a bit longer; the Hana Yakiniku goes on sale November 15.
