The Humble Potpie Gets a Decadent Makeover

Once a lowly frozen convenience food, potpie is showing up in restaurants across the country—and with fillings that transcend chicken (think pheasant, oxtail, and pork). Robbie Arnold-Starr of Belcampo in Los Angeles says, "There's a bit of serenity making a stew and then rolling out the dough for it—it's almost like meditation." Mindfulness aside, these golden, puffed stunners are on menus mostly because "people want to have that emotional experience that comfort food can bring," says Daniel Humm of the NoMad Bar in New York City. And what's not to get emotional about when you're forking through a hot, buttery see more

Someone Paid $61,250 for a Really Big Piece of Edible Fungus

Gaze lovingly upon the picture above, because you are looking at what is being dubbed the "world's largest truffle." This massive, decadent slab of fungus tips the scales at just over a record-breaking four pounds and was flown from its original home in Umbria, Italy, to New York City last week to be auctioned off at Sotheby's. According to Grub Street, the tony auction house sold the highfalutin risotto ingredient on Saturday, with the bidding starting at a whopping $40,000.
