Stop Everything Because Champagne 6-Packs Exist


Summer just got approximately 2348230948234 times better, because now you can bring not only a six-pack of rosé or beer to the beach, but a six-pack of Champagne.
Created by Moët & Chandon, who recently introduced the Champagne vending machine, the Moët Mini Share Pack comes with six 187-milliliter bottles of Moët’s classic Imperial Brut.


Though adorable and convenient, the pack, which is available nationwide, costs $100. If you're committed to drinking mini bottles of Champagne regardless, the pack also comes with golden flute toppers so you can be classy as hell wherever you sip.

How to Flawlessly Grill Fish Without Losing It

We’d all agree that patio grillin’ in the heat of the summer is where it’s at. But there’s *nothing* worse than being pumped about grilling a delicious salmon, and then watching it fall through the grate into a fiery pit of doom. (Nooooooo!) This summer, things are gonna be different. We’ve got eight valuable tips and tricks that will ensure your fish grilling skills are off the hook. 1. Heat the grill and grease it up. To keep delicate fish from sticking, season the grates, much like you would a cast-iron skillet.

The Grilled Snapper Recipe I’ll Be Making All Summer

170125_BA_WeekNightGrilling_Snapper_0757 copy
I worked on a lot of grilling recipes for the June issue of Bon Appétit, but this easy grilled fish recipe is my favorite. Snapper with Blistered Bean Salad and Chile Vinegar fits perfectly into the "weeknight grilling" theme. Because you're cooking in a cast-iron skillet, you don't have to make it on the grill, but, if you do, you can blister those green beans with abandon and not worry about your smoke alarm going off. You can get that fish skin extra-crispy without worrying about stinking up your house for two days. The ingredients speak for themselves: Green beans are a miracle vegetable—you can do anything to them and they will still be delicious. I really like the texture and the...

We’re Drooling Over This Wildly Romantic Drip Layer Cake That’s Perfect for Your Bridal Shower


Pretty and demure or technicolor bright, drip cakes are definitely having a moment. There’s such drama in a colorful drip streaking down the side of a tall layer cake — it’s no surprise they’ve become so popular at weddings and showers. And it’s surprisingly simple to create your own. You just need to bake your favorite sponge cake, get creative with the decorations… and then decide on the all-important color of your drip! We used white chocolate ganache to create the drip in this recipe, and then tinted it using Americolor gel food coloring. We chose a medley of fresh fruit and herbs for the topper, but you can choose the decorations to suit your theme and occasion.
