McDonald’s decision to bring back the McRib has absolutely inundated food news over the past few days. Even mainstream media lamed things up with their coverage and there has been a surge of new “make your own McRib” posts going up. So why did I jump on the band wagon? B/c the McRib is just another fantastic opportunity for me to direct y’all to Fancy Fast Food, a website I’ve mentioned before.
With all the brouhaha over the re-launch of this “cult classic,” it’s nice to find a somewhat unique twist on the story. Basically, Fancy Fast Food is a website (and now a cookbook that you can buy on amazon) dedicated to remixing your favorite fast food dishes. Erik Trinidad takes what was once homely and depressing and re-engineers it into something beautiful. In the case of the McRib (pictured above with a few other Chez Mac classics), FFF has put together a Hawaiian Thanksgiving feast. Though I have yet to try the recipe, I would recommend replacing the bottled water with a more “natural” option. Other than that, it looks good to me! With all the McRib obsession, who says we’re in a health conscious era?
