Fast Food Fondue Mixology
The Montreal-based food pornographers Epic Meal Time take their obscene and brutish displays of fast food gluttony to the cocktail world, creating jet fuel with liquors and spirits, drinking from old boots, vitamin jars, and lunchboxes. Sushi is reinvented by replacing seaweed with a sheet of bacon, Big Mac halves for rice and fries for assorted fillings. Burgers are also battered and deep-fried, skewered onto junk food kebabs, and dunked in barbecue and McDonald’s special sauce fondues.
