A poster of meat. What more needs to be articulated about this 18” X 24” carnivorous, educational, orgy. The 2 color screen print pops off the rich, thick 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock begging to be cooked. Alas, the tooth of the paper breaks the reverie every time. The delightful bi-product is a trip to the butcher. Hanging this meat poster in the kitchen is obvious as it doubles as a reference guide but we prefer it over our bed so our porterhouse dreams are met with ribeye mornings. Yank Marc Howell and Limey Luke Paisley have a great hand. Their other designs, and apologetic company name, seems to be most fitting for their work, current design MOST poignantly included.

You know we have a soft spot for pizza at FTHQ. Teagan White’s “Trash Squirrel” Pin reverberated through the office after Missus Tasty found this rodent gem. Teagan has a whole series of critters doing people like things. Most of it illustrated paint on paper. That’s why this is a rare gem and probably sold out by now. There’s something about a squirrel with a slice that just screams NYC to us. Maybe given that a pizza slice is the perfect quick hit and NYers tend to move like squirrels through the streets. Either way it’s a great addition to a lapel as you hustle from meeting to meeting wrestling your fellow citizens and hunger pangs.
Crafting should be renamed. The term conjures images of grandma’s knitting ornaments and hoarding bottle caps for a new macrame frame idea. Well, thanks to ETSY and Renegade the definition needs to be reworked. In fact, let’s just call these people what they are, artists. Case in point is what Ukrainian artist Hanna Dovhan does with felt. Themed after our own stomach, her Felted Food Friends Series is most possibly the cutest collection of non-edibles we’ve seen this year. They sell out quick so get dibbs while you can.
Amidst the ridiculous and borderline offensive St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts available, we thought this Jack & Jim St Patrick’s Day T-Shirt had a little respect to it. It’s nostalgic, historical and not overtly inebriation focused. Appropriate? No. Acceptable? Yes.
Whether you are on the New York team or the Montreal team, we can all get behind an everything. Maybe not your first choice at the counter but certainly the most magical dough pun we’ve seen this month. Fish Cake Studios has bakers dozen of food greetings from “just for fun” to “Just Married”. Ohh, and don’t worry about them running out on a Sunday morning.
