This is How to Turn Your Big Mac into a ‘Le McCube’

Question: What makes gourmet food “gourmet”? For a dish to earn the coveted title, does it need a certain amount of truffle oil present or must it pair well with a vintage pinot noir? defines gourmet as such: “of or characteristic of a gourmet, especially in involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation.” Translation: a meal or dish that features fancy ingredients you can’t pronounce that’s served on a table with cloth napkins.

Or, if you’d like a more visual representation of “gourmet,” examine the photo below:

Naturally, our investigation of gourmet’s elusive qualifications led us to wonder what would happen if this concept of “skilled preparation” were applied to your every day burger. Would a McDonald’s burger disguised as a gourmet dish be like hiding an elephant in peacock feathers? Or, more importantly, would one even be able to tell the difference?

We sought to find the answer using a bag of McDonald’s fries and a burger. Watch as we transform your average Whopper into some classy ass gourmet sh*t.





Craving: Chicken Chipotlioli (Fancy Chipotle Mexican Grill)

Erik of Fancy Fast Food is at again, this time heading to Chipotle Mexican Grill and picking up 1 burrito filled with grilled chicken, fresh tomato salsa, cheese and lettuce (no rice or beans), a condiment cup fo tomatillo-red chili salsa, a soft drink and organic basil leaves. With these ingredients, and these ingredients only, he turned what would normally be a burrito into an amazing looking ravioli experience. This guy’s game is seriously on a hundred thousand trillion.
