Flavorful World’s Friday Fourplay offers up a bite-sized tidbit of info on each of the four food- and drink-related things we found most interesting each week.
Pizza Hut Singapore’s Double Sensation pizza
I have seen the future of pizza and I really want Christopher Nolan to make a movie about it. The Double Sensation pizza is a pie within a pie fashioned with two rings of stuffed crust (one stuffed with three cheeses, the other with chicken sausage and yet more cheese) and multiple toppings like smoked chicken, zucchini, and turkey ham, with a cherry on top (I’m not even joking about that last bit.) Available for a limited time, it’s currently being included in some of Pizza Hut Singapore‘s standard menu holiday specials.
Burritos By Parachute
I’ve often lamented, on those days when getting out of bed and getting dressed simply seemed too much tedium to warrant serious consideration, that food doesn’t simply fall out of the sky to assuage my hunger. Thanks to industrious minds at Darwin Aerospace, it seems that it may not be long before it does, and even those who aren’t fans of Mexican food should be able to admit that’s pretty cool. Of course, there may still be some issues to iron out regarding the navigation of unmanned flying machines through residential areas, but what a brave new world that has such burrito accessibility in it.
Trash Imitates Art Imitates Trash
Your kitchen trash may be gone, but it is not forgotten. Photojournalist Huguette Roe’s “Recycle” photo series chronicles our castoff refashionables on their journey from trash bin to recycling center. Having spent the past two years visiting more than a hundred recycling centers in France and the United States, she has through her work offered us the gift of a fresh perspective on food packaging waste and the nature of aesthetic merit found in unlikely places, teaching old trash new tricks in the process.

Starbucks After Dark
Coffee giant Starbucks is growing up just in time to help you wile away the boredom on your next airport layover. Starbucks Evenings, a new restaurant venture aimed at more adult tastes, is already operating in the D.C. area’s Dulles International Airport. In addition to pouring wines and beers alongside their teas and coffees, it also serves up small, shareable plates of savories and sweets. This means that after you’ve finished your Truffle Mac and Cheese or your Artichoke and Goat Cheese Flatbread, you can follow it with the likes of chocolate fondue or rosemary brown sugar-glazed cashews for dessert. That growing swell of silence you’re noticing is the sound of passenger grumbling over lengthy plane transfers (at least those coming through Dulles) diminishing because everyone’s mouths are full.
