Thanks to colleague and friend Tad Dickens, who is one of the most unusual dudes I know, I have found the weirdest food Web site I’ve ever seen.
Over at Fancyfastfood.com, they spend untold amounts of time transforming fast food into what looks like gourmet dishes. A few recent examples: a Subway sandwich became a plate of bow tie pasta; McDonald’s chicken nuggets and fries became chicken confit over pureed potatoes; 7-Eleven nachos and hot dogs become a fancy fondue.
Some entries are more appetizing than that (think tiramisou made with maple donuts and donut shop coffee) and some are waaaaaay gross (check this one out). A disturbing number of the recipes involve a food processor and water. It’s like a few high school boys got together and made a bet.
Seriously, though, I’m pretty sure this Web site is intended for comedy purposes only. And boy, is it funny. So if you need a laugh, get over there and check out The Colonel’s Chicken Corn Chowder (made, of course, out of KFC food) or the Dao Mi Noh Chow Mein (made with a Domino’s pizza).
Would you eat any of this stuff?
