Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, says the key to a man’s heart, and other parts, is pumpkin pie. Out of the 40 odors tested in Hirsch’s study, a mixture of lavender and pumpkin pie got the biggest rise out of men ages 18 to 64. That particular fragrance was found to increase penile blood flow by an average of 40%. “Maybe the odors acted to reduce anxiety. By reducing anxiety, it acted to remove inhibitions,” said Hirsch.
FTA: “Every odor we tested aroused the participants,” said Hirsch. … “Nothing turns a man off.”

Foodenator now presents you with the user-voted most awful looking thing to eat ever. EVER.
Ever heard of geoducks? First of all, they’re pronounced gooey-ducks. The prehistoric-looking and, well, pretty ugly shellfish, are native to the Pacific Northwest and fascinating creatures. Though tough to raise (it involves hours of hunched-over farming), they’ve been called the prime rib of clams. Liza de Guia tried some for the first time on her recent trip to Washington state.
“I can honestly say as a seafood lover I felt like I had been missing out my whole life. I tried geoduck sashimi, geoduck fritters, geoduck in chowder and geoduck ceviche.” She visited Taylor Shellfish‘s geoduck farm on Stretch Island in Puget Sound, the largest growers in the Northwest, in this episode of Food Curated.

Both claim to make amazing pizza. Both claim to be fresh and tasty. Both claim to be .. THE BEST. But who are these guys, anyway? Mafia? Former Food Network Stars (FFNS)?
Papa Gino and Papa John? Are they the same dude? Gino sure sounds like John – there’s no question there. They are never seen in the same place at the same time, either. Are they related? Do they hate eachother? Is their pizza the same? Please comment with some answers – we’re losing sleep over here. Borderline freaking out.

Byron M,Foodenate Reader: I heard on CNN that hot babes cannot cook – that they are only able to do certain things well in certain rooms – and kitchen things are not one. IS THIS TRUE? People said my mom was hot and I liked her food. Does that mean I grew up eating bad food? Or were my friends r’tarded? Cause if I don’t know food I think it will really hurt my chances with the ladies. I am kind of scared, please tell me the answer soon.
Marcello C,Foodenate Sous Chef: Dear reader, don’t believe everything you hear on the news. I’m a sous chef at a very prominent ristorante in Boston.Read the rest of this entry »
We just got werd that Procter and Gamble is recalling some of its sexiest Pringle flavors ever: “Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger” and “Family Faves Taco Night” are both GONERS. The reason is due to tainted nasty HPV – (not Human Papaloma Virus) Salmonella-tainted hydrolyzed vegetable protein.
The tainting is causing grief for other companies too – Nestle Professional North America just recalled for about 6,000 pounds (3 TONS, approximately 24.5 pigs-worth) of ready-to-eat bacon, and Ruiz Foods is recalling ready-to-eat beef, whatever the hell that is.
For more info on the awful Pringle situation, watch this video, yo.
