Oceans 234's "Culinary Cult" is a Foodie's Paradise with Caribbean Flavor

There's nothing wrong with a little ambition in the kitchen. Since launching back in March, Oceans 234's culinary series for foodies, "Culinary Cult" has been able to adequately showcase executive Chef Victor Franco's range in the popular seafood restaurant's kitchen. Events of this nature usually take northern rides with dollar amounts but for a very reasonable $60 a head, this can be a rewarding once-a-month experience for adventurous diners on a budget.

This month's cult meeting, finalizes the summer of 2014 with one last kick of tangy beach vacay flavor with "Passport to Paradise: A Caribbean Affair" and it being the fourth in the series, it will be heavy with expectation as the chef and his kitchen can no longer rely on rookie/sophomore mistakes. It might not break the bank, but the series does pride itself in exclusivity and exclusivity demands perfection -- all the hallmarks of the better cults.

Better than carnations.
We get it...everyone loves fried chicken. It's golden crispy shell hides moist, slightly salty meat. It's savory, juicy, and decadent. Plus...fried.

But there's got to be a limit to our eternal love for a bucket of finger lickin' goodness. Or is there?

Do we love fried chicken so much we'd wear it....to prom?

That's the question Kentucky Fried Chicken asks in their new #HowDoYouKFC campaign, where the Colonel is offering fried chicken fans actual fried chicken corsages for sale.

Yes...they're real.

Nick Kroll and Conan let the fries fly.
If you haven't been watching The Kroll Show on Comedy Central, you should. Nick Kroll, the star of the show is a master of characters like Young Larry Bird, the tunafish-obsessed George, and Gil.

Nick came on Conan to chat -- and we learned just how food obsessed he is. From sharing Twitter pictures of tuna sandwiches to chatting about Katy Perry's star turn on the show (that involved the pop star having a conflict over endorsing a new spicy corn chip called Blisteritos).

The Great Chicken Wing Hunt
One man's obsession with wings.
Super Bowl Sunday is upon us. May we suggest subbing out the pre-game show with a movie?

Actually, it's not just any movie. It's a movie about one man's search for the best chicken wings in America -- our favorite kind of movie.

The Great Chicken Wing Hunt is the story of journalist Matt Reynolds. While on assignment overseas, it seems the Upstate New York native missed chicken wings....badly.

For the past few years, truffle scented dishes have been popping up on menus all over the place.

Pretty much any and everywhere you go, some kind of truffle dish is on the menu.

From truffle fries to truffle mac and cheese to truffle-maple-bacon-ice-cream -- all right, we made that one up, but you get the point -- copious amounts of the rare funghi are turning up in places that once would have been unimaginable.

That's not something we would normally complain about, but the vast majority of the fragrant substance are about as far away from the earthy substance as one could imagine. It's mostly a chemical called 2,4-dithiapentane.

Proponents claim by giving your digestive tract a break with a jucing cleanse, the body is able to efficiently relieve itself of the massive amounts of toxins we consume on a daily basis.

With the excess and indulgence of the holidays behind us, I decided it was time to try out a juice cleanse myself along with three friends. Together we make up a hodgepodge of diets and fitness routines.

For someone who makes a living by eating incessantly, it's going to be a challenge -- and probably hilarious.

Lately, there's been a whole lot of fuss about juice cleansing -- we've even featured a bunch of articles on the subject.

Proponents claim by giving your digestive tract a break, the body is able to efficiently relieve itself of the massive amounts of toxins we consume on a daily basis.

From chemicals in the water to pesticides and herbicides on produce to the saturated fats in animal products, it's no doubt that the average American ingest his or her fair-share of unhealthy waste.

The 13 Most Overcooked Food Trends of 2013: #3 "Reality" TV Cooking Shows, a la Amy's Baking Company

The world of gastronomy is as subject to the whim and whimsy of the "trend" as any industry, from fashion to music. Some foods are eternal, like pizza, and others come and go from our midst, for better or for worse.

So, we got together all of the food writers we could find and asked them what they thought the most overdone, needs to come out of the oven, stick a fork in them already food trends of 2013 were.

Since 13 is our lucky number (we like to live on the edge), that's exactly how many we came up with. Some we loved, some we hated, some we loved to hate, and others we just couldn't resist loving until we hated ourselves.
