Would I consider myself a genuine Cheetos enthusiast? Yeah, I guess you could say that. To be fair, I only mess with the crunchy kind — there's something unnatural about the puffs, it's a texture thing. Perhaps I just haven't eaten them in the right context though. Anyway, personal Cheetos preferences aside, I've got some Grade A Foodie Porn news for ya'll. As a disclaimer, if you don't live anywhere near New York City, I'm sorry. I will do my best not to brag in the face of your Middle-America-Square-State-Existence. According to CNN Money —
"Cheetos, the snack chip owned by PepsiCo (PEP), is launching a pop-up restaurant in New York City devoted to Cheetos-inspired dishes. The Spotted Cheetah, which opens to the public between August 15 and August 17, is a marriage between Cheetos and celebrity chef Anne Burrell. Burrell has worked at several high-end New York restaurants, is an author of popular cookbooks and host of culinary shows, Chef Wanted, Worst Cooks in America and Secrets of a Restaurant Chef."
"The all-Cheetos menu will feature dishes that range from $8 to $22, such as Flamin' Hot and White Cheddar Mac n' Cheetos."
Anne Burrell may look like the female version of Guy Fieri, but she's one badddassss mamba-jamba. Seriously, her culinary skills are off the charts! And not only that, how freakin' cool is it that no matter how high-brow she's gone in the culinary world, she's willing to bring it back down to something like Cheetos. I mean, let's face it, they're delicious but they aren't exactly synonymous with truffles in the cooking-industry.
