  • The Smorgascake from Regular Ordinary Swedish Mealtime

Scandinavian cuisine. It's more than just Noma, Sesame Street's Swedish Chef and Bocuse d'Or-winners. It's the madmen of Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time.

A parody of Canadian stunt-cooking show Epic Meal Time, the video series, done in Swenglish, features culinary wonders like the smörgåscake, a smörgåsbord (a traditional open-faced sandwich) combined with a cake. Then there's Swedish Sausage Stroganov Suicide and Meatball Massacre. You can imagine what happens.

  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
