Instead of a Wine Quiz Today…

December 15, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Yes, I had a full intention of publishing the next wine quiz. But I stumbled. The quiz was supposed to be about Dolcetto, and I really couldn’t figure out my approach to the questions, hence… no quiz.

But you know that nasty feeling, when you created a program, a plan, a schedule, if you will  – which you now can’t fulfill? Yeah, not pleasant. So, as I usually do in the difficult blogging moments, I bring the videos to the rescue.

Below are some of my most favorite food videos – I’m even surprised that I didn’t share them before. Two of them are the commercials of the Lurpak butter. No, they are not new, but to tell you the truth, they represent food porn in such a pure form, that I keep coming back to them just for a quick minute of pleasure.

I also recommend watching these videos in the full screen mode – for the maximum effect.

The first one was called Kitchen Odyssey:

The next one, is a whole group of Lurpak commercials:

The last one is not for the faint at heart – if you are on a diet, or simply despise heavy foods, skip it. For the rest of you – this is a hard core food. This video comes from the Epic Meal Time, which has a whole series dedicated to fun and radical cooking. Disclaimer – no, I don’t eat like that, but find watching this video very enjoyable.

That’s all I have for you for today. Off to work on my Beef Bourguignon recipe – will be shared soon. Cheers!

    I love the lurpak commercials, they are beautifully done, artistic, and make me want to cook. The last video, well you warned us but I actually found it very entertaining, felt like my stomach was doing flip flops with all that deep fried high fat carb laden food but it was well done.

      Yep, Lurpak are probably some of the best out there. Epic has more of the cool stuff, you can look them up. But I agree, I kind of jump with every next calories- intensifying cooking maneuver…

    I may have to rethink my avoidance of television after the first two commercials. They are mini-works of art and make one realize that a glass of wine is perfect to accompany most dishes.

      Well, it is much easier to watch on youtube – I definitely don’t watch enough TV to see those commercials on the TV itself… I think Lurpak commercials are outstanding.

    OK, I was going to make lunch but after the Epic Meal Breakfast video, I think that I might fast.

      Well, you don’t have to cook with that much bacon and beer batter : )

    The first two were very artistic. That last one was funny until they started eating it, and then it crossed over into gross, but very funny. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      I agree with you – the consumption part in the last video looks quite gross… But I still find this video funny : )

    The last one I like most. It’s pretty funny and entertaining 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
    Looking forward to your next quiz 🙂

      Julian, I’m glad you liked the video! Yes, it is quite funny – you can look up some other videos from the Epic Food – they are quite entertaining. The quizzes will resume, but probably after the New Year.
