High-End Chefs Are Taking Weed Way Beyond Edibles

It started with an amuse-bouche of quail eggs with caviar and lemon gelée, followed by truffle risotto with forest mushrooms, game hen with barley and tomato, Japanese Wagyu beef and parsnip—on and on until the 11-course meal ended with a dessert of molecular peanut butter powder and a berry-flavored, jelly-filled bubble meant to combine in your mouth. This wasn't a tasting menu at a gastronomic temple collecting Michelin stars or topping World's 50 Best Restaurants lists, but a private dinner in a Santa Barbara, California, hotel suite complete with a kitchen. Oh, and all of the dishes on the menu were infused with a common ingredient: marijuana. "I wanted to do something special for my fiancé, John, and our third anniversary,"...

A Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Is Actually Happening


The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino has officially arrived in stores. (Don't ask us what flavor that means, though, unless you count pink as a flavor, in which case, pink). The #unicornfrappuccino hashtag on Instagram now wields about 650 posts, though it looks like only some stores have it now, while others might offer them later this week, for a very limited time. Click the hashtag for more photos of the Lisa Frankian beverage, and then head to your local Starbucks to try it (and Instagram it) for yourself.

Now Your Kitchen Can Wear Dolce & Gabbana


Following their buzzy collaboration on high-fashion refrigerators last Spring, D&G and Italian home appliance company SMEG are teaming up again on a line of chic kitchen appliances. Coming in October, the "Sicily Is My Love" collection includes toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, stand mixers, and slow juicers.
Each product pays homage to Southern Italy and features designs inspired by Sicilian folklore. Symbolic motifs include Mount Etna, ornamental friezes, decorative acanthus leaves, lemons, prickly pears, and bright red cherries. (Told you fruit was so in.) There are also floral patterns that call to mind D&G's runway designs.

Pasta With Baby Artichokes, Mascarpone, And Hazelnuts


Pasta With Baby Artichokes, Mascarpone, And Hazelnuts

The hardest part of making this recipe is trimming the artichokes, which isn’t as hard as it seems. If you can’t get your hands on baby artichokes, use the hearts of two globe artichokes.

Inside The Kitchen At Ladurée

While nothing quite rivals the gift of a Tiffany blue box, a light pistachio green one from Ladurée Paris, promising an assortment of divine pastel pastries, comes pretty close. Desperate to discover how one of our favorite patisseries makes the macaron based treats we cannot get enough of, we visited the shop's NYC flagship for a behind-the-scenes look at how their sugary sensations take shape. Their iconic macarons are flown in fresh every day from Paris, so you won't see them made here, but their best-known, irresistible pastries and tarts all come together in-house—and are almost too pretty to eat. Here, watch how they make their famed Saint Honoré Rose, Tarte Citron and Ispahan, that taste just as perfect (and...
