Restaurant Introduces 'Clear Pumpkin Pie' And People Have Some Issues

I dunno what everyone’s up in arms about, because the people who made this are straight up genius. 

Alinea is a restaurant in Chicago that has for years been considered one of the finest restaurants in the world, earning a preposterously rare Three Star rating from Michelin. The fella at the helm is Grant Achatz, and I watched his episode of Chef’s Table, and he is a staggering culinary genius with an incredible story: Dude lost his sense of taste to cancer and got it back. And resumed creating insanity like translucent pumpkin pie. 

I’m in. Because of madness like this:

You might look at this pie and think, what happened? This is wrong.

But that’s because you haven’t seen Grant’s episode of Chef’s Table, and therefore you are not yet a believer. This guy served a balloon as desert and diners loved it. 

Behold: disbelievers.

The upshot of all this is that Alinea is something like $ 170-350 a  person, so very few of us will be able to personally try the clear, wondrous pie. So just do yourselves a favor and watch that episode of Netflix’s Chef’s Table. And save up, I guess.

Watch This 'Kids React' Kid Change His Mind On LGBTQ Issues As He Grows Up

And because they have used many of the same kids in these videos, it’s possible to trace their evolution on different social issues—like Twitter user VelvetPJM did when he noticed that one of the kids in the videos got progressively more tolerant about same-sex marriage in videos taken at different times in his childhood.

The videos were each shot one year apart, beginning when the boy was only five—one in 2013, the year that a large part of the Defense of Marriage Act was overturned; one after Obergefell v. Hodges legalized gay marriage nationwide in 2015; and one after “Heartbeat,” an animated short film featuring a same-sex couple, was released in 2017.

It’s a heartwarming reminder about how quickly public opinion has changed about LGBTQ issues—and how it will perhaps continue to do so about other social justice issues. In a few years, perhaps, bathroom bans and debates over trans service members will also seem like the distant past.

This kid, after all, is a reminder that change is possible.
