“There is no sincerer love than the love of food” – George Bernard Shaw
Life is all about simple pleasures, and when it comes to simple pleasures nothing beats a good meal. Food breaks down barriers, crosses borders and brings people together in a way that sometimes words just can’t.
Here at Wimp we see a lot of food videos pass through, and we love all of them. From delicious recipes to insanely talented chefs to just plain bizarre dishes, pretty much everything that can be done with food can be found in our archives. But there are some that stand out. For today’s journey into the past we are featuring some of our favorite food moments, starring one of the all-time great chefs and some lunches that will make you hungry right now.
All this time we thought the only thing to do with a carrot was eat it. Turns out, the vegetable can also turn into a very serviceable clarinet. What a shame it took humanity this long to figure that out. The carrot clarinet can really come in handy if you forget to bring your instrument to band class one day. Now someone just needs to create an entire carrot orchestra.
Say what you want about the French, but you can’t deny they know how to do lunch. This look into a French school’s lunch program reveals the lengths they go to in order to provide children with healthy meals and appreciation for authentic French cuisine. Sure looks a lot better than the chicken fingers and pudding that I used to eat.
What’s an article about food without a mention of the master chef herself, Julia Child. In honor of what would have been her 100th birthday, PBS put together an auto-tuned tribute to Julia and gave her the only thing her brilliant career was lacking, a hit song.
