Because Hot Dog News Is Important: The Royal Dog

PINK'S WELCOMES THE ROYAL COUPLE TO L.A. by offering The Royal Dog on the menu and now has a banner across the front of Pink's saying

I didn’t know the Royal Couple was honeymooning in Hollywood, but I do know a good hot dog when I see one. Maybe Will and Kate (whoever they are) can take one back to the other side of the pond to give the food of their country a much needed, uh, hot beef injection of flavor.

This is a press release:

Come one, come all, thou shall dine like Royalty!!

Safe To Touch After Handling: Chili Grinder

Alessi Piccantino Chilli Cruncher designed by Jim Hannon-Tan

Nuclear-hot red chili peppers add a decisive kick to what could be an otherwise boring meal. However it’s exactly the fact that they are so damn hot that can make them too hot to handle. Literally. Releasing endorphins is great and all, but it doesn’t count if they’re triggered via hot pepper in the eye.

Bake your own hot dog buns

Americoat Nonstick 15
Whether you call them frankfurters or wieners, hot dogs offer something for everyone. Available in a multitude of varieties, meat in tube form continues to be a classic meal no matter where you may be from. Yet for all the different forms (and varying degrees of quality) sausages can take, the bun sadly is too often overlooked. The lowly bun is capable of so much more than being relegated to oddly-numbered packages smushed into the back of a grocer’s counter—especially when you bake your own.

The Americoat Nonstick 15″ x 6″ Hot Dog Bun Pan encourages hot dog buns to rise to their full potential. The raised ridges form indentations into the buns as they bake, in the process creating quick-access cutting guides. As all hot dog fans know, the quicker to the dog, the better. Pile the resulting dog high with condiments (no ketchup), and the perfect hot dog is finally completed in all its glory, from its chili-coated top to hearty bread bottom.
