Let's be clear: there are a few bigger food festival events than Meatball Madness over the course of a calendar year. Burger Bash in both New York and South Beach maybe. Otherwise, Meatball Madness (technically S. Pellegrino's Meatball Madness hosted by Giada De Laurentiis on first reference) at the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival is a big one. This year's big event (taking place at 82 Mercer Street from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.) features meatballs by at least 37 different chefs (37, can that really be true?), some by event vets like The Meatball Shop, Pulino's, Donatella, Rubirosa, Hearth, and new participants like Alison EIghteen, Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, and Carmine's (welcome).

Regardless of who you're handicapping as this year's winner, there are a few truisms to follow:

#1 Don't wear white.

#2 Go hungry, there are 30-plus different meatballs

#3 Get there a little early, remember lines for food are shorter the farther you get away from Giada.

#4 It's pretty much just meatballs. if you want salad, veggies, fish, or anything else, eat it before you get there

#5 The beer and wine are great and all, but this is really about the meatballs.

#6 If you take a bite and don't love it, and that means really love it, throw it out and move onto the next meatball. Don't feel guilty, donate money to the food bank the next day.

#7 Ask everyone you meet what their favorite meatball was, narrow your list from there. Every bite is precious. Don't listen to people that are drunk, really skinny, or look like media — they don't know what they are doing and are there for the wrong reasons.

#8 Drink lots of water before and after. But don't waste valuable stomachs space during. Remember, salt is always the secret ingredient.

#9 There are people who try to eat every meatball. It's possible to accomplish. But if you see them, get out of their way. Do not attempt to interrupt or converse with them. It's called a mission.

#10 "Balls" jokes are bridge-and-tunnel. Don't be tempted. Besides, The Meatball Shop guys will be there.

Japan is expected to expand a state of emergency to cover the island of Okinawa on Friday, and it is also set to approve Moderna Inc and AstraZeneca PLC COVID-19 vaccines after health regulators' green light a day earlier. Japan kicked off its vaccination campaign in mid-February using Pfizer Inc's vaccine but has so far inoculated just 3.9% of its population - the slowest rate among the world's larger, rich countries.

Japan likely to forgo submitting extra budget to current parliament -Yomiuri

Japan's government is likely to forgo submitting an extra budget to the current parliament session running until June 16, the Yomiuri newspaper reported on Friday. Some lawmakers have called for an extra budget to fund spending to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, as state of emergency curbs to prevent the spread of the virus heighten the risk of another recession. But the government judged there was not enough time to pass a budget through parliament with less than a month before it closes, the newspaper said, citing several government and ruling coalition lawmakers.


How Do I Get My Meatballs to Stick Together?

The combination of bread crumbs and egg are the “binder” that holds your meatballs together. If the mixture gets too moist it can become soggy, which makes it hard to form the meatballs.

If you run into this problem, start by adding panko bread crumbs 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture allows you to form nice, rounded meatballs.

Be careful not to wind up adding too much extra bread crumbs, or you’ll end up with a meatball mixture that is too loose that will not hold it’s shape.


Bakso (Indonesian Beef Balls)

Last month I had the pleasure of contributing to Melissa Joulwan’s awesome meatball recipe collection, “March Meatball Madness.” My dish, Bakso, is one of my favorite ways to eat ground meat. Be sure to check out the rest of March Meatball Madness on her blog, The Clothes Make the Girl!

Bakso is an Indonesian beef ball similar to Chinese or Vietnamese beef balls. Like all Asian beef balls, they are dense yet spongy, with a texture similar to fishcake. The key component of this texture is pulverizing the meat into a paste, often described as surimi, wherein its proteins are broken down. I like this spongy texture, and it’s a great alternative to your typical uses for ground beef.

It’s commonly believed that Bakso was first brought to Indonesia by Chinese immigrants. Bakso vendors can be found on most busy Indonesian city streets. Recently, there has been a health stigma against Bakso vendors, since additives such as Borax and MSG are commonly found in the beef balls or broth they’re served in. But in their natural form – as found in this recipe – Bakso is both delicious and healthy. The only modification I made from typical Bakso recipes is that I omitted the bit of sugar that is usually added to the balls to enhance their flavor.

Bakso (Indonesian Beef Balls)

  • Servings: 6
  • Time: 30 minutes plus 4 hours
  • Difficulty: Easy

Beef balls:
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork or chicken
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2″ grated ginger or galangal (1/4 tsp ground ginger okay)
1/4 cup water

Soup:
1 cup beef broth
1″ whole ginger or galangal, peeled
1 cinnamon stick
2 black cardamom pods
4 whole cloves
1/2 tbsp fish sauce
juice of 1/2 lime (

1/2 tbsp)
1/2 tsp white pepper
salt to taste (about 2 tsp)

Suggested accompaniments:
1 lb Chinese cabbage (choy sum or kai lan preferred), washed and cut into 2″ lengths
2 carrots, julienned
chopped cilantro to garnish

1. Mix all of the beef ball ingredients together with your hands, then transfer to a food processor. Process the meat until bright pink, finely mixed, and somewhat tacky in texture. Stop the processor every minute and scrape down the sides with a spatula. Transfer the meat paste to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and put in the fridge for at least four hours, or overnight if you’d like.

5 quarts) to boil, then reduce heat until it is gently simmering. Wet your hands, then grab some of the meat in one hand squeeze the meat through your thumb and index finger, then scoop away the ball with a spoon and gently drop into the water (pictured below). Once the ball starts to float, let it simmer for 2 more minutes then fish it out and place it in a bowl of ice water. Check your first meatball or two to make sure they’re cooked through. Repeat this procedure with all of the meat it’s easiest if you have someone making the balls while someone else monitors the balls for doneness and fishes them out. Once all of the balls are cooked and in the ice bath, strain and rinse them gently with cold water. At this point, your beef balls are done – enjoy them right away or freeze/refrigerate for later use. If you want to enjoy them immediately, proceed to step 3.

3. Spoon out any fat or chunks from the water you used to boil the beef balls – it’s going to be our soup base. Add the beef broth, ginger/galangal, cinnamon stick, black cardamom pods, and whole cloves. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to marry, then fish out the ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves (alternatively, you could put them in a tea bag or cheesecloth and pull it out). Add the fish sauce, lime juice, white pepper, and add salt to taste.

4. Add the Chinese cabbage and blanch for 30 seconds, then add them to the soup bowls. Do the same with the carrots, but blanch them for only 10 seconds. Add the beef balls to the soup and return to a simmer, then scoop the balls and broth into the individual bowls. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

** Feel free to experiment with the types of meat. Using half beef and half chicken/pork is my favorite, but you can use all beef, all pork, etc. Since Indonesia is a predominately Muslim country, Bakso is commonly made with just beef, or mixed with chicken.

** The accompaniments are just a suggestion – you could add all sorts of things, like rice noodles, zucchini noodles, sweet potato noodles, enoki mushrooms, scallions, fried shallots, or hard-boiled eggs. The possibilities are endless.


Gooey, tacky meat paste = springy, delicious beef balls.


The trick to getting smooth beef balls is to push them through your thumb and index finger, as demonstrated by the prettiest lady in my house.


Make large batches of beef balls so that you can freeze them for quick, weekday meals.


We Made the Ultimate Pop-Tart Tasting Bracket (Because We Could)

For a humble toaster pastry, the Pop-Tart is at the epicenter of some very strong opinions. Are you a berry person, or do you prefer one of the chocolatier flavors? Frosted or unfrosted? Toasted or straight outta the packet? And so it&aposs only natural that as one of our first endeavors, the Extra Crispy staff made it our business to make a definitive bracketed ranking of our nation&aposs most precious vending machine offering. That means each of us tried at least a small bit of every single flavor of Pop-Tart the good folks at Kellogg&aposs would send along to us.

Yes, there were some serious office sugar comas. No, no one tried them with butter (you monsters).

The basic bracketology was this: Two flavors were tasted against each other, and the one found most universally pleasing advanced to the next round. All were eaten plain out of the packet rather than toasted, because laziness and we don&apost have a 22-slot toaster—yet. (Though, FYI, our address is in the footer and we love toaster-sized surprises.) Out of the potential Pop-Tart contenders, we selected only the frosted kind, to prevent filling flavor overlap, and because if there is an option for frosting, we&aposll take it. We seeded them in rounds based on what flavors we suspected would be most likely to win. Some results followed our predictions (long live raspberry!) and others were hotly debated upsets (who thought cinnamon roll would beat out chocolate chip?) but overall we could agree that, um, we were extremely full.

Because no one else should probably eat 22 Pop-Tarts in a single sitting, here are the results from our extremely scientific Pop-Tart madness bracket.


Giada De Laurentiis' 3 Meatball Rules

Gentlemen, Giada De Laurentiis, host of Food Network's Giada at Home, wants you to know that the perfect meatball is a truly beautiful thing.

Learn to craft and cook these delicious, satisfying orbs of meat and you've acquired not only an essential recipe, but an heirloom. We talked with De Laurentiis during the Meatball Madness event at this year's New York City Wine & Food Festival. Both she and several of the other chefs at the event cited their grandfather's and/or grandmother's recipe as inspiration for their own.

Immortality by way of meatball? It's possible. Just follow De Laurentiis rules. (And for the perfect meal any time, check out the 125 Best Foods for Men.)

Rule #1: Tenderness is paramount
You know those "meatballs" tucked into your sandwiches offered up at the local sandwich chain? The meatballs that, if dropped, ricochet like bouncy balls? Those aren't real meatballs, according to De Laurentiis. A real meatball should be structurally sound enough so that it doesn't collapse while cooking, yet tender enough to divide and conquer easily with a fork. The mistake most meatballers make? Packing them too tightly, says De Laurentiis. When making the meatballs, roll them together, pressing gently. Never knead or smush the meat.

Rule #2: Add a secret ingredient
Great meatballs have a kick of flavor, says De Laurentiis. Maybe yours is a sharp Pecorino Romano, fresh basil, or crushed red pepper. You want to taste the heartiness of meat, yes, but you also want a surprise that will trigger that "Wow. What's in this?" response among your fellow meatball eaters. (Eat what you want, when you want, with Eat This, Not That! 2013.)

Rule #3: Ratchet up texture
Tender, juicy meatballs require a counterpoint of crunch, De Laurentiis says. This is why a well-made meatball sandwich can taste so delicious&mdashthe toasted bread provides a crispy, crusty textural element. To replicate this beyond the sandwich, top meatballs with toasted breadcrumbs or serve them with grilled crostini or sturdy potato chips.

Many men and women do not fully grasp that the foods you decide on can either help you to be healthy or can adversely effect your health. Its also wise to understand that there are foods that you’ll want to avoid at all costs and that would be the majority of food you find at the fast food chain restaurants. The foods that you get from these fast food places are foods that are very unhealthy, loaded with fat and generally have little to no nourishment. Because of this we are going to be going over the healthy foods that you should be eating that will have a positive effect on your health.

Also when you are trying to find a snack to hold you over in between meals, grab a handful of nuts or seeds. You will come to realize that these snack items are usually loaded with Omega-3 and Omega-6, although some nuts and seeds will have more than others. Your body will use these types of fatty acids as a source for creating hormones that your body requires to stay healthy. Some of these hormones that are needed are only able to be created by having these fatty acids within your diet.
