Happy Halloween!

The Pumpkin Tap Kit by KegWorks

You know what to do if your pumpkin survives pumpkin-smashing night, right? Turn it into a pumpkin drink dispenser with The Pumpkin Tap Kit!

Actually, you might want to use a fresh one, considering the tap turns the gourd into a big ol’ drink dispenser. And besides, those jack-o-lantern eyes, nose and mouth kind of make it hard to fill up with liquid.

Happy Halloween!

First Annual L.A. Sriracha Festival

L.A. Sriracha Festival

Three hours is not enough. That’s how long the First Annual Sriracha Festival will last.

Randy Clemens, author of two of the easiest books ever to be written in the history of ever (The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch and The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook: 50 Vegan “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch) is behind the idea along with Josh Lurie of Food GPS.

Considering that Sriracha goes with everything, perhaps there will be some surprises at the L.A. Sriracha Festival. It will cost you about $50 to find out on Sunday, October 27, from 3 pm to 6 pm at LOT 613 in the downtown L.A. Arts District. Or, you could just take that $50, go grocery shopping and just squirt some of that delicious, delicious hot sauce on anything and everything you buy. It will taste good.

Then again, the festival is officially sponsored by the maker of the iconic condiment, Huy Fong Foods and David Tran will be making a special appearance. Shaking the hand of the man who changed condiment history might be worth it alone. Be sure to lick your fingers afterward.

Make Your Own Cheese Kit

Complete Artisan Cheese Making Kit from Grow and Make

How cheese gets from the cow to the plate is a journey that many may be interested in. Not surprisingly, to get there involves a lot of things that start with the letter ‘c.’ That would include: cheese wax, cheese shaping mold, cheese cultures, cheesecloth, cheese salt, and a cheese brush.

And that doesn’t even take into account all the things that don’t start with ‘cheese!’ For example, where would someone get the other necessary ingredients and tools? Well, if after all that one still needs: rennet, calcium chloride, coloring, thermometer and a wax melting pot, they most certainly did not pick up the Complete Artisan Cheese Making Kit from Grow and Make.

Everything listed above is included in the DIY cheese-making kit. That is, everything but the cow and the milk.

Product Description:
A complete cheese making kit for the culinary artisan (does not include milk). Includes ingredients and instructions for making gouda, colby, monterey jack, mozzarella and ricotta cheese. Includes cheese wax, cheese shaping mold, rennet, cheese cultures, cheesecloth, cheese salt, calcium chloride, cheese brush & coloring, thermometer, wax melting pot

OREO Separator Machine

Finally! It is unknown what percentage of the population prefers Oreo cookies to Oreo cream, but it is a good bet that all those Double-Stuffers out there outnumber the cookie fans. That is why it took so long to build the OREO Separator Machine.

Well, no longer:

It’s a basic human desire to separate an OREO cookie. Humans love either cookie or creme. And sometimes a man just needs to invent a machine to do the hard work of separating the two. Today, that man is physicist and cookie-part preferrer David Neevel. Watch him operate the machine he created that separates OREO cookies.

No longer must those who like the cookie part better walk past the Oreo Double Stuf package in the supermarket and shield their eyes in disgust. Finally, cookie fans have their day!
