I cannot think of a worse Halloween costume than dressing up entirely in different cuts of meat. If the prospect of spreading salmonella, e. coli and other diseases around you isn’t enough, try fending off all the small critters. Wait a second…this isn’t a costume? Someone actually wore this for real? And to top it off, a group of butchers has actually warned the public about trying to duplicate it this Halloween? OK, so maybe pass on the GaGa-influenced meat outfits. But in that spirit, here are 10 more foodie Halloween costumes we hope no one will duplicate this year.

“We’ll force a half-smile as long as your promise not to show these to anyone, Mom.”
9. Sandwich Girl

8. Vanilla Bean

The Onion’s video podcast has been absolutely killing the popular food landscape lately and the feedbag story is no exception. Funny, I don’t remember seeing this on the behind-the-scenes tour at Taco Bell! Someone at The Onion must have made a run for the border lately, because they recently took a shot at Taco Bell’s ingredients (without resorting to the obvious Soylent Green joke, thankfully).
Also in their cross-hairs: the crowd at Denny’s, for whom I still have more respect than the folks at Olive Garden.
– The press release fairy sent word today that the new season of Top Chef will debut on August 26th. You can meet and greet with the new chef’testants thanks to a video introduction from Bravo.
– In addition to a delicious-looking recipe for a manchego-stuffed pork burger, the new edition of Food Network Magazine says that their poll found: “Nearly 60% of chefs said they’d want their own cooking show.” In possibly unrelated news: little did I know a few weeks back when I tossed around chef Jose Garces’ name for food TV consideration that the scuttlebutt on the street would be that he missed his James Beard Award presentation to attend a Food Network-related engagement.
After the jump: we double the amount of coverage we’ve given to this season’s Next Food Network Star (in other words, we have two items) and we look at food celebrity footwear…and I promise it has nothing to do with Crocs.Read More›
