WHAT’S THE STORY?

86_2012055977_l

There is no denying the relationship between food and many facets of life, including relationships, holidays and momentous life occasions. But, what may be a less obvious is where food shows up in the fictional stories we read. Realizing that some of the greatest books of our time actually laid out some of the most unique, meaningful meals, artist Dinah Fried took it upon herself to shed light on the dishes we may have overlooked.


In her newly published collection titled “Fictitious Foods,”Fried (with a most appropriate last name for the theme) has staged 50 meals from some of the most noteworthy stories, including ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ (featured above), ‘The Bell Jar,’ ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ and ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,’ to name a few. In each image, you can grasp the nature of the story and the characters who captured our hearts. So, while we may have turned the page and missed the role of food in each plot, be sure to take a look at Fried’s book to transport you back into the magic of literature, only this time, by way of your stomach.

As much as we love pie, no one ever said, “Let them eat pie.” With that in mind, we’ve morphed one of our favorite pies into a killer cake, as is the case with this Key Lime Cake Recipe, a moist and delicious cake that has all the flavors of a Key Lime Pie. This Key Lime Cake hits the perfect balance between sweet and tart, with luscious layers (4 in all!) encased in key lime cream cheese frosting and coated in a graham cracker crumble. This one really takes the cake!

Looking For A Buzz?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard of (read: spend way too much time on) Buzzfeed. A hub for social news, Buzzfeed is a go-to source for all things relevant at any moment in time. From world news, to technology updates, to celebrity updates and all things entertainment, Buzzfeed is a platform that quite literally feeds you what you need to know when you need to know it (that is, in a buzz). 

A newer addition to the site that has quickly grown to overwhelming popularity is the quiz section. They pretty much have every type of quiz you could ever want (perhaps more than you even want), with those spanning from “What Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Are You?” to “Which Beat Generation Writer Are You?” Although, of course, in true Bite Me More fashion, it is the crop of food quizzes that have us giddy and needing to share. With such hilarious questions to even more hilarious results, here are Buzzfeed quizzes we just can’t pass up:

What Food Matches Your Personality?

Which Sandwich Are You?

What Should You Actually Eat For Lunch?

Which Cereal Are You?

Which Fast Food Chain Are You?

Which Pie Are You?

What Cheese Are You?

What Kind Of Cookie Are You?

Do You Eat Your Age?

What Does Your Favourite Breakfast Food Say About You?

Bump and Grind (and Bite!!!)

With this past weekend having been the first of the two-weekend Coachella Valley Music and Arts extravaganza, we can officially say that festival season has begun! It seems a most recent fad that summer music festivals have entered the scene, but hey, we aren’t complaining. With festivals like Coachella in Palm Springs, Osheaga in Montreal, Bonnaroo in Tennesse, The Governor’s Ball in NYC and even Glastonbury in England, you really could take a (pricey) trip around the world enjoying each one.

While the festivals are obviously built to revolve around music and have sparked notable fashion trends to fit the vibe (note: flowy fringe dresses, flower crowns, bright colors, prints and the perfect pair of sunglasses are a must), what cannot be disregarded is the food. Ah yes, the food. Nothing like a crowd of eager hipsters wanting that ideal food Instagram to seal the music festival deal. 

But really, more than the Instagram, it seems that music festivals are hosting a crop of food vendors featuring foods that are to die for, with prominent restaurants even jumping to join in the mix. At Coachella this year, the famed Sugarfish sushi will be making an appearance, as well as noted sandwich shops Num Pang and Mile End that will be at Governor’s Ball. So while you may be thinking the music is the focus, we suggest you consider the promising ten pound weight gain that will also follow. We know we will!

Here are some of the most trendy eats you will find across the board at the countless festivals:

Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwiches
With flavors as interesting as Whiskey and Lucky Charms, this snack is a delicious cool down treat that you might just stretch out your mouth trying to bite!

Korean BBQ
Just trust us when we say, do not eat too much of the beef and noodles.

Big Bite Fruit
While you may or may not be familiar, the hipster way to eat fruit at a festival is to take bites out of an entire half a watermelon. Makes for a great picture!

Booze
Craft beers and specialty cocktails with flavorful twists are the go-to drink to wash down all the other tasty bites. 

Mexican Street Food
But really, what could be better than scarfing down a couple tacos or nibbling on some decadently dressed corn?

Lobster Rolls
Never a disappointment, this is the perfect option for anyone looking for an easy fix.

Fancy Shmancy Grilled Cheese
In case you didn’t get the memo, grilled cheese is no longer as simple as bread and cheese. Oh no no no. Now, gourmet grillers are not only upping the cheese option (hello brie, goodbye cheddar), but the choices of vegetable and meat add-ons as well as saucy toppings are also of note.

Classics with a Twist
And, of course, if you’re wanting to stick to your roots, there are the standard fast-food items that can be plain or dressed up! From five story burgers to fries with endless toppings, deliciously greasy pizza, curious shake combinations, and piled on hot dogs, it is pretty hard to go wrong.

HOP TO IT!!!
