This Blooming Apple Pie Is Big Brained Creativity

Kevin Durant, one of the most prolific scorers in NBA history, once famously responded to a reporter questioning how he’d hold up against pesky defender Patrick Beverley with, “I’m Kevin Durant. Y’all know who I am.”

And that same energy applies to Josh Elkin around these parts. Why is he Foodbeast fam, Foodbeast Kitchen League champion, and a regular feature on this page? He’s Josh Elkin. We know who he is.

Continuing that consistency is his latest madcap recipe for a Blooming Apple Pie. To picture it perfectly, take a Bloomin’ Onion and reconfigure that as a dessert using an apple. The recipe above let’s the delectable drama play out beautifully.

Recipe wiz and Kitchen League champ, Josh Elkin, is no stranger to whipping up some magic in the kitchen. He’s cast otherworldly spells before like sausage-stuffed breakfast donuts and mac & cheese lava cake, so we know the resume.

In one of his latest recipes, he continues the program with two eye-opening flips on the traditional hot dog: an In-N-Out dog and a Big Mac dog. I did a double take as I was scrolling down the feed, all while my brain was trying to catch up with the unruly fusion that presented itself to me on my screen.

Just picturing two iconic burgers in glizzy form has happy tears cascading down my chubby cheeks. Thankfully the recipe for these are posted, as Josh Elkin is never one to hoard the jewels to himself.

Chefs Nationwide Compete In Unprecedented Remote Cooking Tournament

Foodbeast Twitch will be hosting what might be the first-ever nationwide competitive cooking competition that viewers can control the outcome LIVE and in realtime. During this Bleed Purple tournament, each chef will be teamed up with a partner that will help them develop their recipes for the upcoming matchups.

Imagine a competitive cooking competition where any chef can compete from their home kitchens. With everyone staying in these days, getting our sports fix is limited to highlight reels or video games. What if, however, there was a real-time tournament where not only you can cheer on your favorite chef, but you can actively sabotage their competition live?!

For those unfamiliar with the Foodbeast Kitchen League, it’s a competitive cooking series on Foodbeast’s Twitch channel that pits two chefs against one another. While they cook, audience members can donate Twitch currency “BITS” to sabotage competing chefs with things like having to cook one-handed, being blindfolded, taking away their knife, or having to wear oven mitts for a period of time. Regardless of how many sabotages come their way, the chefs always manage to produce some of the coolest dishes we’ve seen and tasted.

There will be ways to support your favorite chefs during the stream too, with options such as sabotage protection, clearing sabotages, and revealing dreaded secret ingredients early in the competition.

As the chefs cook, their partners are tasked with guiding them through their sabotages as well as answering host questions to earn Swagger points that lend to the judges’ final deliberation.

For the first time, Kitchen League will be done in complete Squad Stream format, with chefs and their partners participating remotely across the country.

The winner of the entire tournament will be presented the Foodbeast Kitchen League Championship Belt on stream. Additionally, there will be a charity-based reward for all four teams, with bits contributed by your audience (to sabotage opposing teams) going to restaurants or charitable organizations that your team chooses. The overall winner will have $500 added to that cumulative total.

What To Eat With Man’s Best Friend While Dining At This Dog-Loving Restaurant Chain


A lot of restaurants and chains have incorporated dog and pet-friendly policies over the years, but not everyone has had one from the start. If you go to the Lazy Dog, a dog-themed and dog-friendly restaurant chain, though, you’ll find two entire menus: one dedicated to dogs, and another expansive one for their owners.

Foodbeast’s own Marc Kharrat and Elie Ayrouth teamed up with Josh Elkin, the Undisputed Champion of Breakfast and host of the Cooking Channel’s Sugar Showdown, to try out both menus from cover to cover. On the latest episode of Foodbeast’s show Going In, they went to the Lazy Dog location at the Del Amo Fashion Center to sample the chain’s entire offering.

Based on what they tried and reviewed, here are some recommendations on what to order for both you and man’s best friend on the Lazy Dog menu.

Food Bowls for Dogs 

The Lazy Dog’s dedicated dog menu is simple, but gets your pet all of the nutrients they need. It consists of plain grilled chicken or burger meat, white or brown rice, and veggies. It’s completely okay for humans to eat, too, should you want to eat dinner alongside your dog.

Three Cheese Pizza

In terms of human food, Ayrouth and Elkin were both big fans of the Three Cheese Pizza. The Lazy Dog’s take on the classic flavor combines mozzarella, Romano, and Parmesan cheese onto one pie.

Ayrouth recommends getting it with chili oil on the side. You can ask for it, drizzle it over the pizza, and get a tasty combo of spicy and cheesy that’ll leave your taste buds tingling.

Mac + Cheese

One of Elkin’s go-to favorites was the Mac + Cheese, a small plate with smoked bacon, hatch chiles, five cheese, and a green onion crumble. There’s plenty of flavor to go around on this one.

Chili Peanut Wings

The Chili Peanut Wings were also a tasty favorite for Elkin. They’re coated in a marinade featuring pineapple juice and fish sauce alongside a variety of chilies and other aromatics for a balanced, flavorsome wing.

Simms Family S’more 

Kharrat especially loved this treat because of the campfire nostalgia that it evoked. He said that it “speaks to that campfire culture that the founders seem to be pulling inspiration from and that made it stand out for me.”

Bison Burger

Ayrouth was a particularly huge fan of the bison burger because he felt that it was THE menu item that best achieved the “zen the founders of the restaurant set out to display,” as he put it. “It took me to the wilderness with every bite,” he said, “all the while remembering I was just in a shopping mall.”

As for Marc…

He was just really excited about the massive slab of watermelon served on the side.
