These subcultural foods are making a splash in the hipster scene — can you make them?
Carrying the weight of being a “hipster” is an awkward burden to bear. Technically speaking, you’re a part of a subculture that shuns mainstream ideologies of what is “cool” and “appropriate,” but being hipster is so cool and so many people want to emulate it, that it is really a mainstream culture, too, in the end.
But whether you think that hipster ways of life are for or against “the man,” there are staples in this subculture that are easily identified as “hipster,” and food has not escaped this classification. To help you achieve ultra hipsterness (or to avoid it), here are six super hipster dishes you should know.
Now if you can manage to nix the pork and replace it with tofu, you’ll have an even more super-trendy sandwich.
Crispy Sriracha Mac and Cheese
Sriracha makes everything automatically hipster...

Because, of course.

It's time to break out the picnic basket and the checkered blanket!
As the weather grows warmer and the days grow longer, there's often one goal in mind for those who have spent the cold winter months holed up at home: getting themselves (and if they have them, their children) outside. And given that most people have spent the better part of the past year in Covid-related lockdowns and quarantines, spending ample time outdoors feels more pertinent than ever before. And while there are a number of summer activities one can do to get outside and get their body moving, from a simple walk outside to attending summer camp, there's arguably nothing better than enjoying a warm-weather picnic.
Figuring out what to pack for a picnic isn't always easy, though. Thankfully, there are a slew of picnic menu ideas for couples and families to choose from. From picnic sandwich recipes to deliciously cold finger foods to easy-to-pack desserts, there's no end to the number of picnic food recipes to choose from. You can even pack some summer cocktails. Of course, some healthy salad recipes and organic wraps are also a great foods to take on a picnic.
Whatever you decide to pack in your picnic basket, you'll love these picnic food ideas.
