'Star Wars' on Serious Eats

Star Wars-themed Burgers Coming Soon to Belgian/French Chain Quick

Belgian/French burger chain Quick will release Star Wars-themed burgers for a limited time in conjunction with the February release of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace 3D in theaters. Three double patty burgers will be available starting in February: the Dark Burger (available until March 1), the Jedi Burger (available until March 5), and the black-bunned Dark Vador (Darth Vader) Burger (available until March 1). The Darth Vader is getting all the attention, of course, because black bun = WTF. I couldn't find a description of the toppings, but I'd guess it's spicy since the red bits look like peppers. More

Death Star Grill on eBay

Photographs by Bryan Tate "The basic idea was to have a working grill that looked like the Death Star and could actually cook something," says sheet metal worker Bryan Tate. And thus the Death Star Grill was born out of two bottom-halves of Weber grills, welding, and barbecue paint. You have just three more days to get your hands on this grilling beauty on eBay.

The Most Awesome Ice Cube Tray Ever

Saw this on Boing Boing, where the sentiment seems to be that the talking R2D2 ice bucket is a near-sighted scrap pile but that the Han Solo–frozen-in-carbonite ice mold that comes with it stone cold awesome. One commenter there laments that the shape of the Han Solice would limit it to highball glasses but another envisions pressing it into duty as a chocolate mold. Unfortunately, the set, which was only available by pre-order in the U.K., now appears to have been removed from websites there.... More

In Videos: Food Commercials of the '80s, Nerd Cereals Edition

Editor's note: This week, it's, like, omigawd, totally '80s for our daily In Videos segment. Big hair, breakdancing, and before-they-were-big celebrity commercial appearances to the max. So kick back your fat-laced high tops and take a chill pill. —The Serious Eats Team What better food tie-in could you have with popular icons of nerd-dom than artificially colored, diabetes-inducing breakfast cereal? You've got your Pac-Man Lucky Charms knock-off, your C3POs that look more like conjoined Cheerios than anything Star Wars related, and the pseudo-amorphous fruit-flavored blobs of Super Mario Bros. cereal. Watch the crunchy, vitamin-enriched fun, after the jump.... More

Like a Star Wars Costume for Your Pizza

"The Force is an energy field, created by all living things, that surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together." Up above me is what Obi Wan said, and that's what pizza is—minus the part about being created by "all living things." (Only a small percentage of all living things create pizza, when you really stop to think about it.) But the rest of the quote holds true. Whatevs. I just think these Star Wars-ified pies rock. Looks easy enough to dress up your pizza, eh? Still, these pizzas are not as good as my pumpkin-vampire costume, which rocks... More
