Jack In The Box And Jason Derulo Are Running A Virtual Pop-Up

Since quarantine began, Jason Derulo has been cooking up some insane looking creations in his own kitchen. That kind of creativity has apparently resonated with Jack in the Box, who hit up Derulo to do a collab and created a pop-up restaurant as a result.

Called One In A Milli, the virtual ghost kitchen can be found on UberEats in different parts of Los Angeles from June 14-28. One of the items however, the Milli Meal, will be available nationwide through August 8th to anyone who has the Jack in the Box app.

The Milli Meal consists of a Triple Bacon Cheesy Jack, Roost Fries (a new Jack product consisting of chicken tender loaded spuds), and mini Chocolate Croissant Bites. It goes for $10-$11 based on where you live.

Each of the other One In A Milli items will be exclusive to the LA pop-up’s menu. There’s two food orders available: the “BurgerAco,” which takes a Jack taco and jams it into a jumbo burger, and the “Mega Milli Platter,” where a base of mini tacos, jalapeno poppers, and curly fries gets loaded with cheese, bacon, cheese sauce, ranch, and mystery sauce.

For drinks, there’s the OREO Cookie Cheesecake Milli Shake, as well as a Bacon Churro Milli Shake topped with both churros and strips of bacon.

All of the items sound like late-night munchies delights, but they should be available all day long, based on where you’re located in Los Angeles. For everyone else, there is the Milli Meal available through the app.

Watch Gordon Ramsay Make Scrambled Egg Dishes From Around The World

Gordon Ramsay is known for his high-drama reality cooking series, but also has been whipping up a variety of unique egg dishes on his YouTube channel.

As part of a series on his channel, Scrambled, Chef Ramsay has been cooking up a variety of unique egg dishes that draw influence from different countries. The locations coincide with episodes of his National Geographic show, Uncharted.

Below are just a few of the tasty unique scrambled egg dishes Ramsay has made that might inspire a few creative takes of your own.

Sea Urchin Scrambled Eggs In Tasmania

Uni scrambled eggs are always a luxurious, savory treat, especially when served in the shell. In spots like California, where sea urchin is considered an invasive species, this could be a way to treat yourself, have a fun scrambled egg experience, and help the environment out at the same time.

Peruvian Alpaca Fat Scrambled Eggs

Alpaca is a common protein in Peru, but Chef Ramsay stuck to using the fat, alongside chilies and herbs whisked inside. Could be interesting to do this with another type of animal fat if alpaca isn’t available near you. Pork fat, perhaps?

Black Iberian Bacon and Eggs from Portugal

Iberico Pork is one of the highest-quality meats you can find out there, and Chef Ramsay managed to get some from Black Iberian Pigs (Porco Preto) and turn it into a tasty take on bacon and eggs. He actually doesn’t use the belly, which makes me intrigued on what other cuts of pork could go great alongside eggs that we normally don’t use.

Norwegian Reindeer Sausage Omelette

Reindeer is commonly eaten in the colder parts of the Northern Hemisphere, especially in Scandinavian countries and even Alaska. If you don’t want to track down reindeer sausages on Amazon (yes, you can find them there), maybe another game meat sausage or even something spicy like andouille would work?

Regardless of which dish you take on, it’s cool to get a ton of inspiration around a single item, and Chef Ramsay is doing just that with this unique series all about scrambled eggs.

Watch Renowned Seafood Chef Josh Niland Create a Stunning “Porchetta of the Sea”

Josh Niland, the Australian chef renowned for his nose-to-tail approach to seafood, is a master of fish butchery. His restaurant, Saint Peter, is a veritable cathedral to seafood excellence.

Niland’s mastery of seafood and adherence to sustainability has led to numerous accolades and recognition, which is no wonder as to why he was invited as a guest chef in the current season of MasterChef Australia. In a recent episode, he butchered a whole cod, practically making it “disappear,” then recalibrated the fish’s parts into what one contestant described as a “porchetta of the sea,” though Niland dubbed it as a rolled roasted Murray cod.

A fish transmogrified into a never before seen dish like this is something only the likes of a talent like Niland can do, which makes for must see television itself.

Utah Jazz Star Jordan Clarkson Helps Filipino Food Truck Vandalized With Racist Graffiti

Last week, a Filipino food truck in Northern Utah, World Famous Yum Yum Truck, was vandalized with anti-Asian slurs and hateful graffiti.

“I really can’t believe that some people can be so mean. My family works so hard, sometimes 12 hours a day and we didn’t expect to come home to this,” posted Yum Yum Food Truck on their Instagram page earlier this week.

Utah Jazz star and the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Jordan Clarkson got wind of the situation and decided to give his most important assist this season by lending a hand to help restore the truck with a new paint job. Clarkson, who is Filipino-American and holds dual citizenship in America and the Philippines, came to the rescue along with Layton Mayor Joy Petro, city council members, and Identity Graphix to restore the truck with a brand new paint job.
