A double scoop of Huevos Rancheros

Posted by Asmaa / October 18, 2006

pep6.jpg Are you tired of the mess eating pizza makes? The drippy sauce, the limp crust and especially the stringy, dangerously hot cheese? How about if I told you could enjoy all the taste and all the fun of a slice of pepperoni pizza in a compact, no-muss, no-fuss format? Sound too good to be true?

Well, it is ... true, that is. Nir Adar is a food stylist who claims his innovation, the Crispy Cone, will do for food what the iPod has done for music. "The cone is a big idea that's catching on," Adar told industry glossy, Food Management, a magazine which obviously has its finger on the pulse of culinary advancement. "Thanks to the ice cream cone, society is familiar with the cone's shape. A meal in the cone is the future." And all this time, I had hoped the future would look more like the Jetsons' Food-a-Rac-a-Cycle.

He simply takes the ingredients, chicken, vegetables, soy sauce and rice, and scoops them into a savoury cone. Voilà ... Chi-cone Teriyaki! That smell, my friends, is the fresh, hot whiff of progress. No longer will we be enslaved by the tyranny of Utensils and Plates. We can now take our greasy fast-food fate into our own hands.

But what, you ask, are these magic cones made of? Here's what the folks at the company have to say: "This is the $64K question. The Crispy Cones dough is made from a special formula that allows it to bake in our patent-pending oven to produce a drip-free cone every time." That's right, the Crispy Cone is people ... peeee-ple!!!

I am trying to decide if this is gross or good. Many many years ago while traveling in Africa, I wound up in Durban, which has a thick streak of Indian history and culture running through it. The city is known for many things, but the one that stood out during the planning of my trip, and the experience that is firmly planted in my brain today, is Bunny Chow.
It's not what it seems, but instead it is a small loaf of bread, with the top chopped off and a hunk of the soft interior pulled out. Into that depression, a big scoop of curry is placed. So, you see, although Bunny Chow requires utensils, I can fully understand the portability appeal of the "Curry-cone."
And of course, its the eating of the saucy, bread-bit with your curry-charred mouth that is the best part of the experience.

I want to say yuck, every French gene in my body (and my mother's voice) is telling me to say yuk... but my mouth is saying YUM.

Now, that is gross. And I don't have any French genes in my body.
