Deep Dish, Twisted Food History! – Episode 8: S’mores!

In this episode of Deep Dish, we hang out around the campfire and roast up some s’mores!  How long have we been roasting marshmallows around fires?  Did the person who wrote down the s’mores recipe have the best Girl Scout leader name?  You’ll have to listen to find out!

Highlights

  • A brief trip down memory lane of school cafeterias/school lunches.
  • The history of s’mores basically stops at the invention of s’mores because they’re so perfect!  What else is there to talk about?
  • Marshmallows used to be medicine!? Well… sort of!
  • An insane deep-dive on one of the biggest fad-diet purveyors of all time, Sylvester Graham!
  • We finally praise England for one of their contributions to the culinary world!
  • A somewhat more recent edition of Shitty Old Recipes that tragically combines s’mores with hamburgers… (It’s as terrible as it sounds.)

Episode 19: Off Topic! Super Bowl Foods By State! Deep Dish: Twisted Food History!

In this off-topic episode of Deep Dish, we look at another Google Trends map which shows some interesting search results from different U.S. states related to what kinda Super Bowl foods they're looking to make! After this, we tear apart an op-ed written by possibly the richest, most spoiled douchebag on Planet Earth, who published an entire article complaining that his vacation to Hawaii, in the middle of a pandemic, had to be cancelled. We finish up with a mind-boggling edition of Shitty Old Recipes which makes up for its short ingredient list by being truly confusing.

  2. Episode 18: Gingerbread Men!
  3. Episode 17: Off Topic! Christmas Special!
  4. Episode 16: Chili Con Carne!
  5. Episode 15: Ranking Thanksgiving Foods!

Next week we focus on a true dessert sandwich, after questioning if s’mores count as a sandwich. This tasty frozen treat was born in New York at the turn of the 20th century, before coming a fixture in freezers around the globe. Think you know what it is? Guess in the comments here, on Facebook, Youtube, or Instagram, and we’ll feature you on a future episode of Deep Dish! Until then, stay hungry
