The Daily Dish: This Black Ice Cream Will Cure Your Hangover

This Black Ice Cream Will Cure Your Hangover

Scratch Restaurants in Encino, California, have created an ice cream cone made with coconut milk, homemade sprinkles, and activated charcoal, the latter of which gives the dessert its distinctive black color. The dessert is served at the end of Scratch’s tasting menu, and it’s perfect for an end-of-the-meal digéstif or as a hangover cure, owner Margarita Kallas-Lee told Vice’s Munchies. "Whenever I was feeling ill or she wanted me to detox, [my grandmother] always gave me charcoal," Kallas-Lee said. "It creates this beautiful color and it also is unbelievable for you to have after dinner."

Eat Like Tom Brady With His New Meal Subscription Service

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele are known for their restrictive eating habits: Brady won’t eat any processed foods, completely eliminates sugar and fruit, and has never had a drink of coffee. Brady’s new meal subscription service, launched in collaboration with The Purple Carrot, offers a meal kit that is almost (but not quite) as limiting. The TB12 Performance Meals are vegan, gluten-free, totally free of processed foods, and restrictive regarding soy and sugar. For $78 per week, subscribers can cook and enjoy high-performance meals that are almost completely plant-based. "Eating meals just like the ones we'll send out to our customers has helped me stay at the top of my game, and it's really exciting to be able to deliver the recipes and ingredients for people to easily cook these meals at home," Brady said in a press release.

The Queen of England Drinks Champagne Every Day

Never one to shirk her responsibility as representative of the royal palate, Queen Elizabeth II, 90, enjoys a glass of Champagne every evening, according to a recent report by Business Insider. Her preferred brands are Bollinger, Krug, Lanson, and Pol Roger. The nightly glass of Champagne before retiring to her bedchamber is not the only alcohol the Queen indulges in daily — she also reportedly enjoys a gin and Dubonnet (a sweet, wine-based apéritif) with a slice of lemon on the rocks daily before lunch. The queen is reportedly not a huge fan of wine, but it is kept in the palace, of course.

We have to hand it to Ina — she always knows what we need, when we need it. Like the comically large cosmo she made on Instagram in April. And this three-ingredient, five-minute pasta dish on the Food Network Kitchen app that's undeniably delicious and perfect for when you have no time to put dinner on the table.

Made with just lemons, butter and pasta, this dish is one of Ina's go-to recipes. In her class, she shares that she makes it every New Year's Eve after spending the evening working up an appetite gallivanting around Paris (oh, Ina). For the rest of us, it makes for a tasty and easy weeknight dinner after you've spent the day juggling work, kids, pets and life in general.

According to Ina, this lemon cappelini is "officially one of [her] favorite dishes of all time." And reviewers agree, calling it "my go-to lemon-butter sauce", "wonderful and so easy to prepare after work", "a keeper for sure" and "honestly the best pasta I've ever had."

What's so great about it, you ask? Ina gives three reasons: One, it's incredibly fast to make. Aside from boiling water, the whole dish takes just five minutes. The secret? Capellini. According to Ina, it's a little thinner than spaghetti so it cooks in just four minutes. Imagine what you can accomplish in the other 25 minutes you normally take to make dinner!

The second reason Ina loves this dish is because it has only three ingredients: lemon, butter and pasta. Together, the lemon zest and juice combine with the melted butter and the residual starchy pasta water to create a rich and velvety sauce that the pasta absorbs for maximum flavor. "I was afraid the lemon would be overpowering and the butter really rich and heavy," said one reviewer. "But it was light and fresh!"

And finally, the third reason Ina calls this pasta "amazing" is its versatility. You can eat it plain as your standalone supper or as a side dish. Or, you can top it with some roasted shrimp or — as Ina suggests, of course — caviar for a heftier main course. Since this recipe is part of the Best of Barefoot Contessa course on the app, we suggest watching the rest of the classes and pairing it with Ina's Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken. How easy is that?
