Slideshow: This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

Spam Wellington

It's Spam like you've never seen before. We hope. To use up the leftovers from our Spam taste test, Kenji made loads of dishes containing Spam, such as this Spam Wellington, a Spam loaf topped and bottomed with duxelles, further topped with foie gras pâté, then wrapped in puff pastry.

This used to be Spam. Whatever it got blended into, it wasn't good.

Jed was the only intern in the office last Friday to help Kenji prepare his Spam recipes. All the other interns totally missed out, obviously.

We knew that tiny Coca-Cola bottle and sandwich would come in handy someday.

Max was in Singapore this week on an intense noodle bender. Though he didn't get to eat this particular crab, he did enjoy several of its tasty friends.

Part of the stash Max brought back from Singapore: a whole bunch of Oreos we haven't seen here. We were most intrigued by "Mildly Sweet."
Jed's good-bye cake
Jed's good-bye cake
Since today was Jed's last day in the office [sniffle], we said our good-byes the Serious Eats way: by feeding him one of our favorite cakes, Balthazar's coconut cake. We told him to look sad for the photo, but he said he couldn't look sad while holding cake. Totally valid reason.

So good, it even pleased the Serious Eaters who said they didn't like coconut.
Hambone wants a banana
Hambone wants a banana
Sorry we don't have any new Hambone photos; he wasn't in the office this week. To tide you over until Hambone's return, here's an old photo Robyn shot with her iPod. Hambone doesn't like bananas, but he tends to forget that whenever Robyn eats a banana. Result: mopey Hambone injecting guilt into Robyn's soul.
