S3 Ep2- Fast Food, Scotch Pods, No Effin Ziti

On this weeks episode of NotAFoodie we drop some HUGE News, but first some FOOD News

Food News

  • A Panera Bread employee posted a TikTok of how the Mac and Cheese gets made, and surprise it’s done in a sous vide method. The employee drops a vacuum-sealed bag into boiling water, cooks it, cuts the bag open and plates it up. This is such a non-story because Panera Bread, like any massive chain, has Standard Operation Procedures that make streamline their product so it is the same wherever you go. If they made it from scratch it would taste different from location to location, and the most important thing about chain restaurants is consistency. Panera fired the employee who posted this, I’m sure they violated a rule but give me a break, I can’t imagine all the free engagement that this got them.
  • The McRib is back! You don’t really need to add anything to that sentence. But check out the podcast because I get to drop some Ray Dalio x Fast Food Factoids
  • Glenlivet Tide Pods are a thing now. Apparently they’re more than just a clever marketing ploy. These are edible cocktails made in a seaweed encasement. I would try one but wouldn’t go out of my way to procure these

No Effin’ Ziti

A few months ago I had an idea for content so I brought it up to Tom. I told him I wanted to do a Sopranos Cooking Show where I cook my way through all 86 episodes of the show, this means I’ll be cooking a dish that the characters are eating, referencing, or anything else that makes sense for that episode. We have shot a few so far and should be releasing the first episode in a week or two. Be on the lookout for it and get excited. This project is going to be a massive undertaking so I would appreciate it if you all would share it with everyone.
