French street artist turned graphic designer Tysra creates 'Tysramisu'

"Tysramisu" is the latest creation of French graphic designer Tyrsa, a decadent homage to the arts of typography and pastry-making. Commissioned by Parisian bakery LIBERTÉ, Tysra and pastry chef Benoît Castel used three different tiramisu recipes to create towers of cream, coffee, and cacao powders, each contrasting in color. The tops of these towers each boast a different solid chocolate letter that, when finally compiled, spelled out the name of the project. Fortunately for us, LIBERTÉ has created a short video promoting the project and giving us a little behind-the-scenes peek at the process behind such a creative (and delicious!) work. Now who's hungry?

Travel the World with These 5 Delicious Vegan Recipes
If you're anything like me, you're definitely an international foodie. You've tried Russian food with your friends or tried making your own vegetarian sushi at home. Trying international foods is a terrific way to find out more about a culture - and it's certainly cheaper than a roundtrip ticket! Below I have five different vegan and vegetarian-friendly recipes from five different countries: Spain, France, Ethiopia, South Korea, and Jamaica! Try them out the next time you want to travel the world from inside your kitchen. Paella de Verduras (Spain) Vegetarian Paella (From La Tienda) MAKES 4 SERVINGS INGREDIENTS: 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 3 piquillo peppers 1 large bermuda or Vidalia onion, chopped 1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped 1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped 3 large cloves or garlic, peeled and finely minced 1 - 1/2 tsp bittersweet Spanish paprika (Pimentón de la Vera) 5 - 10 strands of saffron 1 medium zucchini, trimmed and cubed 4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped (or 8 - 10 halved grape tomatoes) Salt and pepper to taste 1 1/2 cups Bomba rice, or Calasparra rice 3 cups vegetable stock, or 2 cubes vegetable bouillon.

Lower heat to medium low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until most of the stock is absorbed. 2) Cover with foil, put in 350 F oven for another 10 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed. 3) To serve, decorate with lemon wedges and chopped parsley. Pissaladiere (France) Marseilles-Style Pizza (From Eat Live Run) MAKES 3 SERVINGS INGREDIENTS: 1/2 recipe Vegan DIY pizza dough (or store bought works well) 2 tablespoons pesto (store bought or homemade) 2 tablespoons tomato sauce or paste 5 white onions 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1/4 cup water 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/3 cup sliced black olives 1/4 cup sliced sundried tomatoes A pinch of red pepper flakes DIRECTIONS: 1) Slice onions very thin and toss them in your largest pot along with the water, oregano, salt and pepper.

Place in greased long rectangular tart pan and prick the bottom with a fork. Brush with pesto and tomato sauce and then add a thick layer of cooked onions (you might not need all the onions). Sprinkle the sliced olives and sundried tomatoes on top and finish with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. 3) Bake at 450 for about fifteen minutes, or until the bottom of the pizza is done. Remove and let cool then pop out of tart pan and trim sides. 4) Serve with a glass of red wine and pretend you’re in Nice.

Then add ginger, garlic, and turmeric and cook 1 minute. 2) Add to the cooked peas. 3) Add a little more water and simmer again until the peas are very soft. Add salt to taste Vegan Bibimbap (South Korea) Mixed Rice and Vegetables (From Peaceful Dumpling) MAKES 3 - 4 SERVINGS INGREDIENTS: Sauteed fern (Available at Korean supermarkets, but if you omit, that's okay too!) 1 bunch spinach, washed and trimmed 1 package mung bean sprouts (or soybean sprouts), washed and trimmed 1 medium carrot, cleaned and julienned 1/2 block extra firm tofu, cut into dominoes About 6 cloves garlic, minced 1 green onion, chopped 2 cups cooked rice 2-3 tbsp sesame oil About 1 tbsp cooking oil for stir frying 3 tbsp Korean hot pepper paste (gochujang, available in many supermarkets and Asian stores) Toasted sesame seeds (for garnish) Salt and pepper DIRECTIONS: 1) Boil mung bean sprouts in water for about 5-7 minutes until just tender. Drain thoroughly using a colander. Move to a large bowl. Using a pair of chopsticks, dress with about 2 tsp sesame oil, salt, pepper, about 1 minced garlic clove, 1 tsp green onions. Set aside on a plate. 2) Blanch the spinach in boiling water for no longer than 15 seconds and drain using colander. Run under cold water immediately, then squeeze out all the water. In the same large bowl that you used for sprouts, dress using the same exact ingredients. Move to the plate next to the sprouts (but don’t mix them together!). 3) Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large wok or frying pan over medium heat. Add carrots and saute for about 5-6 minutes until done. Set aside. 4) Using the same frying pan, pan fry the tofu until golden crispy, about 4 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside. 5) In a small bowl, whisk 3 tbsp hot pepper paste with 1 tbsp sesame oil. 6) If you got the dry ferns, soak them in water for about 4-5 hours until completely reconstituted. Drain. Boil in water for about 30-45 minutes until these suckers are completely limp. Drain. Then saute in soy sauce (to taste), 3-4 cloves minced garlic, and sesame oil (also to taste) for about 5 minutes. 7) Assemble all of the above over a bowl of brown rice. Admire for a few seconds and then mix it all together with a spoon, then eat it! Veggie Patties (Jamaica) Pocket Pastry filled with Diced Vegetables (From Vegan Soul Kitchen) MAKES 6 LARGE PATTIES INGREDIENTS: 1 tablespoon coconut oil 1/2 cup 1/4-inch-diced yellow onion 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon allspice 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/8 teaspoon cayenne Coarse sea salt 2 larges cloves garlic, minced 3/4 cup coconut milk 1/4 cup 1/4-inch-diced carrots 1/4 cup 1/4-inch-diced yellow potatoes 1/2 cup fresh green peas (or frozen) 1/2 cup sweet fresh corn (or frozen) 1/2 cup shredded cabbage 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper Pastry: 1 3/4 cups unbleached flour 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 2 teaspoons turmeric 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 3/4 cup chilled coconut oil 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons ice water DIRECTIONS: 1) In a medium-size saute pan over medium-low heat, combine the coconut oil, the onion cinnamon, allspice, cumin, red pepper flakes, cayenne, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Saute, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are caramelized. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, carrots, and potatoes, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the carrots and potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the green peas, corn, cabbage, thyme, and lemon juice, cover, and cook for 3 minutes more. Season with additional salt and the white pepper (or to taste) and set aside to allow the flavors to marry. 2) Combine 1 1/2 cups of the white flour with the pastry flour, turmeric, and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Set the remaining 1/4 cup white flour aside. Add the coconut butter to the flour mixture and rub with your fingertip until the mixture resembles fine sand, about 10 minutes. 3) Combine the vinegar and water and mix well. Then, without overworking the dough, add the vinegar mixture by the tablespoon, while stirring, just until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl and begins to coalesce. Squeeze into a tight ball, flatten, cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 4) Preheat the oven to 350F and remove the dough from the refrigerator. 5) With the reserved flour, lightly dust a clean surface, roll out the dough until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Cut six 6-inch circles from the dough (you can use a bowl). Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of the filling onto the center of one side of each circle, leaving about a 1/8-inch border. Fold the other half over to make a half-moon, press to seal, and make ridges around the edge using a fork. (hs note: if your dough is at all on the dry side you may need to run wet fingers around the edge of the circles to help get a good seal). 6) Transfer the patties to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve immediately with some hot sauce.
France Experiences A Shortage Of Baguettes?
Sacré bleu! It seems that France has quite the dilemma on their hands. Due to a national reform in labor laws, a reported two-thirds of the country's bakers have spent the months of July and August on vacation. For the first time in 50 years, the government has allowed bakers to choose their own vacation dates. Previously, these days were decided and delegated by the government to ensure that fresh artisanal bread would be available even during the summer months. Needless to say, the bakers immediately pulled off their aprons, closed up shop, and YOLOed their way up out of dodge. This has properly pissed off some Parisians, including Aude Debout, a 30-year-old designer from East Paris, who expressed in an interview with NBC: "It's more difficult. I find myself buying more sliced bread from the supermarket - and that's not even really bread." Side note: It might just be me, but nothing makes you feel more like a 'dumb Yankee' than when a French person tells you that flour-based impostor you've been making your BLTs with isn't actually bread. My life is now a lie. Thanks, Aude. Anyway, back to the baguettes. These bakers, however, see it from an entirely different perspective, believing that the opportunity to take vacations during the slower summer months just makes more business sense. Rue de Charonne baker Morgan Marie has decided to close her bakery for the summer, explaining: "If nearly all my clients are on holiday it's not profitable. It's much better to be able to open when I like. It's not that bad if clients have to walk a little longer for a few weeks to find bread in August." Perhaps the winners of this whole debacle are the few bakers that decided to stay open while the rest of their local competition closed, as they're currently rolling in dough - in both a literal and figurative sense because.. well, baking. One bakery, A La Flûte Enchantée, decided not to close at all this summer, a decision that manager Arnand Anita hopes will generate loyalty: "For us it's a plus, we will bring in customers and hopefully keep them." As of right now, no plans are set to build upon or adjust these new and more lax labor regulations. But I hope hungry Frenchmen everywhere are able to get their favorite baguette fix back again soon.
5 of the Most Important Reactions to the French Terrorist Attacks
2 days ago France experienced a great tragedy... Terrorists across the city killed over 130 people. With the incredibly awful events that happened this weekend, it's easy to see the ripple effect of reactions. People around the world reacted to this event strongly. And here are the most important ones... according to me. France The country effected by this tragedy is making some really big steps. Not only are they stepping up security in the city, around the country, but they are also launching airstrikes on ISIS. Recently they launched fighter jets in their biggest raids in Syria to date, targeting the Islamic State’s stronghold in Raqqa. Over 20 bombs were dropped. Obama Obama held a press conference after the event. And evoking thoughts and feelings of the 9/11 tragedy the same thoughts change sympathy: "We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves. And whenever these kinds of attacks happened, we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us. They have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner, and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion." Essentially: America stands with France. Social Media Is it just me or is your Facebook feed flooded with images, thoughts, and pictures related to the. In My twitter feed is also blown up with the hashtags. Three themes I've seen: The Pray for Paris People - these people are the vast majority, sending sentiments of sympathy. The 'If Only' People - these are the people that have to bring about another point and use France as a example. If only they had guns, if only they had better security, if only we had stopped ISIS earlier. The Other Issue People - similar to the if only people, these social media people have thoughts on another issue that they use Paris to bring up. What about the refugees! What about the attack in Beirut! What about... There also seems to be a big change in profile pictures. (Thanks Facebook!) What are your thoughts on the profile picture change? Anonymous A hacker group, Anonymous came forward stating they are officially in War with ISIS. Ok, so I'm normally not a fan of hackers but they seem like they are terrifying. And many news organizations are intrigued by their decision. To date these self-proclaimed "hacktivists" claim to have destroyed 149 Islamic State-linked websites and flagged roughly 101,000 Twitter accounts and 5,900 propaganda videos. Many people around the world are questioning this groups capabilities, but who knows? It sure is fun to get behind a group of masked hackers. Helpers Around the World A famous Mr. Rogers quote is, "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" So where are the helpers from the Paris Attacks? Red Cross went into full swing helping and providing medical assistance for those in the disaster. The French National Blood Service took donations outside of France. Taxi cabs in Paris offered free rides home. Little helpers all over the city put up signs and candles. #PorteOuverte was the hashtag used to reach out and house those Parisians all over the world. And these won't be the only reactions. I'm sure we will experience more in the future. And we have our own reaction. @ButterflyBlu @InPlainSight @carenabobo @Animaniafreak @alywoah @gabbycalzada @LeticiaMendez @vonchio @LunaCordero @ImUrBestFriend @netchtiBates @fallenangeljess @kat121 @MarjorieSound @vonchio @kanghyobin @KalyanMadoori @starsun7 @CreeTheOtaku @shantalcamara @christianmordi @KathyCrew @TessStevens @TingThang @CassidyRoush @jorekawaii What was your reaction to the French terrorist attacks?
