Daily Hash: A $77,615 party foul, the strange diets of Olympic athletes, Punchfork rules, and more

Posted By on Mon, Jul 23, 2012 at 4:17 PM

Watch Justin Warner of Food Network’s Rebel With a Culinary Cause rap about why Chateauneuf de Pape is so dope.

Party foul. A customer at London's Playboy Club shattered a $77,615 (£50,000) bottle of historic Cognac, which dated back to 1788.

Today is National Hot Dog Day. To celebrate, check out this slideshow of the World's Most Expensive Wieners including Capitol Dawg's $149.49 "California Capitol City Dawg." The Sacramento hot dog stand currently holds the official Guinness World Record for most expensive hot dog.

It turns out that the diets of Olympic athletes are a bit stranger than your stereotypical Wheaties and milk. The Olympic team from Kazakhstan loads up on horse meat sausage, and McDonald's is a staple for Michael Phelps.

Martha Stewart is not a fan of fast food, but she did give In-N-Out in Beverly Hills a try while on a media tour for her upcoming PBS show, Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. "It was OK," Stewart said, adding that she would "much rather have a salad or sushi or something like that."

Punchfork has the best recipe app, ever.*

*This claim is not backed by, well, anything, but the author's opinion after searching the App Store on her newly purchased iPhone. If you know of another badass recipe app, tell us about it in the comments.
