German design studio Korefe created the world’s first completely edible cookbook. Designed as a limited edition series for the art and culinary publishing company Gerstenberg Publishing House, The Real Cookbook is an edible instruction manual made of 100% fresh pasta with a classic lasagna recipe embossed on its pages. The Real Cookbook can be opened, read, and then each page used as a layer for making the very same lasagna described on those pasta pages.
Japan has taken the humble hot dog and turned it into an adorably creepy lunchtime snack. According to RocketNews24, they’re called “sausage people”, which somehow makes them even creepier. These little red weenie folk appear all too eager to be boiled in soup, nestled in sandwiches or posed in cute bento meals.
There are undoubtedly children and adults throughout Japan entertaining each other by performing midday meal skits with their smiling sausage people. We know we would be.
Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
We’re sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts about the return of spring is the reappearance of Easter candy on store shelves, not the least of which are those oh-so-precious Cadbury Creme Eggs. Over the years our favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), has created a mouthwatering suite of recipes featuring Cadbury Eggs. And, because she’s all about sharing the sweetness, she always provides thorough instructions.
Here you see Jessie’s Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs, Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict, Cadbury Creme Egg Salad Sandwiches, Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs, and last but not least, her latest creation: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast. It’s a thick slice of pound cake with half a Cadbury Egg in the center that’s heated on a griddle and served warm, melty and delicious. (Each link will take you to the corresponding recipe)

We don’t know where Imgur user TryAnotherPiece works, but that’s not important. What really matters is that for their coworker’s last day of work they made this incredibly awesome farewell cake. Nothing says “So long and good luck!” quite like zombies, severed body parts, and lots and lots of chocolate.
Our newest inductee to the Department of Awesome Parenting is Beau Coffron, aka Lunchbox Dad, a San Francisco-based father who creates extraordinary lunchbox meals for his two children every week. These lunches are lots of fun to look while also being tasty, healthy meals for the lucky kids who actually get to eat them. Coffron draws inspiration for his homemade boxed lunches from movies and other pop cultures sources. He also takes requests from his son and daughter.
You can see many more of these awesome meals at the Lunchbox Dad website, where Coffron also provides extensive write-ups for each lunch, including ingredients and how-tos.

Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.
"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.
Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:
Italian sausage patty
Krispy Kreme doughnut
Macaroni and cheese
Quest blanco dip
For a whimsical series entitled A Tribute to Budgie, Buenos Aires-based food illustrator and stylist Anna Keville Joyce created beautiful bird illustrations on plates using nothing but food. Scattered around each plate are the edible materials used to create that particular bird.

This awesomely overindulgent edible behemoth is called the Ulti-Meatum. It’s a cheeseburger (complete with buns) inside another cheeseburger, sandwiched between two more cheeseburgers. It’s 10,000 calories worth of food on a single plate and it was created by Corinne Clarkson, owner of Mister Eaters Fish and Chips in Preston, Lancashire, England. Clarkson was inspired to create such an imposing tower of meat, cheese and bread after watching an episode of Regular Show on Cartoon Network.
Mrs. Clarkson freely admits that she hasn’t actually tried the Ulti-Meatum herself:
‘I couldn’t eat it – I haven’t even been tempted yet. It’s massive. There must be someone in the country who wants to try – and they’re more than welcome.’
She really means it too, the Ulti-Meatum is free to any customer able to finish it in one sitting. But if you’d rather break it up into ever-so-slightly more sensible portions, for £20 ($33 USD) Mrs. Clarkson’s husband John will happily prepare each section for you as a separate serving.
Behold the overindulgent awesomeness that is a 125.5 lb hot dog. It was just unveiled at the Miami-Dade County Fair by Brett Enright, founder of Juicy’s Outlaw Grill. Enright currently holds the Guinness record for the World’s Largest Commercially Available Hamburger, which weighs 777 lbs, costs $5,000 and has to be ordered two days in advance. He’s hoping that this monstrous hotdog will also prove to be a record breaker.
"Weighing in at 125.5 pounds — the naked dog tipped the scale at 51 pounds; the rest of the heft came from a gargantuan bun and gallons of condiments — the dog was cooked for three hours on a 100-foot mobile grill that travels from fair to fair on the bed of a 27-ton tractor-trailer."
After this particular hot dog was photographed and weighed, it was sliced up and served to fairgoers for $1 per serving with all proceeds going to charity. However Enright says that, like his giant burger, the colossal hot dog can be special-ordered for parties (or ravenously hungry giants) for a mere $1000.
