5 Food Mashups That Have Made the World a Better Place
Nothing in this world is original anymore, so they say. Well, who needs originality when you can just combine things that already exist! It's called building on previous knowledge right? So here are 5 delicious food love-childs that have made the world a better place.
LET'S EAT ALL THE FOOD!!
1. Waffle Sandwiches
Created by Dominque Ansel at his bakery in New York, the Cronut is basically croissant dough that has been shaped into a doughnut, then deep fried, filled with custard and iced, just like a doughnut. Now I don't know what kind of late night munchies created this artery clogging dessert, but it's one magnificent piece of work. So magnificent, in fact, that imitations have popped up all over the world. People are still queueing up round the block at Dominique Ansel's bakery, and scalpers are selling these babies at about $100 a pop! So rich I would suggest sharing, you can try a version of it in Sydney at Adriano Zumbo's patisseries.
3. Ramen Burger
I'm still not sure what kind of college late night memories inspired ramen burger creator Keizo Shimamoto, but I think that this is a delicious win either way. Many recipes and imitations have popped up around the world, and some of them include involved steps like including egg whites, to freezing the ramen 'buns', to other more elaborate steps to ensure a compact bun that can support the patty but still have a nice tender bite to it. In Sydney, On-Ramen has debuted their own version of the ramen burger, to mixed reviews.
4. Chicken Fried Steak
