This is ridiculous. The UK's annual Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling—in which a wheel of cheese is hurled down a large hill and a bunch of yahoos chase after it, inevitably hurting themselves in the process—has been canceled due to safety concerns. Not for the participants, who are somewhat delightfully deranged [...]

We recently received issue number one of Fire & Knives, a new print quarterly of "new writing about food" out of the UK. In their own words: "We give established writers a place for work that would not be published elsewhere; new writers a place to show [...]

London Skyline Recreated With Fruit and Vegetables

Back in November, Carl Warner (responsible for many of the foodscape photographs you may have come across) was commissioned by the Good Food channel in the UK to make an edible version of the London skyline.

Gordon Ramsay's new line of appliances by Argos are just so damned sexy: rugged, handsome, brushed stainless steel. Maybe it's the well-executed product photography that's deceiving us, but they look heavy. And expensive.
And that's because they are! At £89.99 (~$143) for the sandwich griddle. £149.99 (~$238) for the mini oven, £199.99 (~$317) for [...]

Video Tribute to Keith Floyd, UK Celebrity Chef

This time last week, our world was adrift, bereft of a true original. Keith Floyd — the inimitable — was dead. Having passed away as a result of a heart attack (not surprising, really), the televised world of cooking had at last, lost its most irreplaceable artifact.
Floyd enjoyed as he might have put it, rip-roaring [...]
