In my online travels, in search for all things food, I often see attempts at innovation that seldom hit their mark.Â However, I recently came upon a site, Fancy Fast Food, that tries an interesting angle â€“ the â€œextreme makeovers of actual fast food items purchased at popular fast food restaurants.â€Â Apparently, the person/team behind this site buys an assortment of goods from a certain fast food establishment, and thereafter totally deconstructs the food in order to create a new and far more compelling meal.Â Hmmmâ€¦.
In one instance, FFF buys two sack meals from White Castle (along with fried clams) and turns it into Tapas de Castillo Blanco (see above).Â Â Â
Understanding how they got from A to B requires reading a laundry list of steps ranging from the following tasks:
Bring the remaining Coke to a boil under medium heat in a non-stick saucepan and evaporate it down to a dark, sweet syrup.
Using a food processor, blend the french fries into a pulp with a little water.
Grate the buns with a grater to make a bowl of fine breadcrumbs.
I said the same thing â€“ someone has lots of time on their hands.Â However, I do admire the effort, even though I would still not eat any of this stuff, before or after.
