Rabbit Pizza

New Zealand's Hell Pizza is introducing rabbit pizza just in time for Easter. And they're advertising it with billboards covered in rabbit skins. To make the pizza, they combine the rabbit meat with spiced beetroot and horopito relish, and then add pine nuts and cream cheese as toppings. Hell Pizza says it's a "beautiful subtle flavor". []

Vegan Art

Austria-based artist Anamaria Finta went vegan two years ago. And for some reason that change inspired her to start making art out of her food.

A lot of her art pieces seem to rely heavily on cream cheese and yogurt, both of which (last time I checked) aren't vegan. So I'm assuming she must use vegan substitutes for these.

So actually, I'm not sure what her art has to do with veganism at all. But it is nice food art. [via]

The Cakes The Thing!

Vicky Knoop wanted to make a a scary over the top birthday cake for her boyfriend. So she put together a very realistic rendition of 'split-face' from John Carpenter's The Thing. Her effort was even praised by John Carpenter himself via a note from his wife Sandy to Vicky. Great job, so good in fact that I don't know if I could have eaten it!

Girl Scout Cookie Pairings

It's a question that comes up often this time of year. What wines and beers should I pair with girl scout cookies?

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette interviewed experts to find the answer. Basically, you want sweet wines and beers, but they offer some more specific recommendations. For instance:

Thin Mints: a sparkling Shiraz, or a hoppy, chocolatey American porter.

Samoas: a fortified wine (such as R.L. Buller Victoria Tokay), or a dry, Irish stout aged in bourbon barrels.

New Use For Baby Poo

Research to produce sausage containing probiotic properties is being undertaken in Spain. They are working with bacteria found in baby poo to make the specialized sausage. The idea is to make getting probiotics from food easier for people who do not like dairy products such as yogurt.
