Life goals worth accomplishing
This man has eaten every slice of pizza in Manhattan. In the “Obsession Issue” of Lucky Peach, Hagendorf was the subject of a “Profile in Obsession.” Hagendorf systematically ate a slice of pizza from every single pizza joint on every single street. He chronicled his delicious adventure on his blog, sliceharvester.com, and he has a book coming out soon.

She can turn a spill into the most magical scenes. And she also works in the mediums of wine and Nutella.

Chefs coast to coast are upping the game on fried chicken sandwiches, Nashville-style hot chicken and fried chicken in many ways. At the moment, chicken is a faster growing segment than burgers in fast food, according to data from the NPD group.
