Gothenburg-based Katja Wulff runs a blog called Coffee Machine Cuisine - How to cook food with your coffee maker. She's been hooked on coffeemaker cooking since she pioneered the field in a 2009 dorm room, whipping up her first batch of noodles in the pot; to date she's made "pizzas, pastas, cat food...shellfish soup, testicle tacos (this was really a good one), cakes, breads, burgers, Swedish meatballs, pig tail soup... Pretty much everything in my old coffee maker."
Wulff's blog, filled with her entries accompanied by boyfriend Dan Sorenson's photos, is as weird as it is fascinating. And in addition to the coffeemaker—handed down from her grandmother, it appears to be from the 70s or '80s—she also experiments with using other household devices to produce meals, resulting in descriptions like the following:
Grease the minute steak and chop the onion and the bell pepper. Add pasta and a dash of oil in the coffee maker carafe, pour water into the brewer and a pinch of salt in the filter thingy. Start your coffee maker and plug in your hair waffle iron.
Yes, two types of curling iron, a clothes iron, a hair straightener, a hair dryer and a dishwasher have all popped up in Wulff's recipes. It's a fascinating look at how many objects in our house are designed to create heat, and how they can all be hacked for culinary purposes.
We know it's hump day and you're dying to take a look, and the blog is SFW--as long as you keep the text small in your browser; Wulff's quirky sense of humor has led her to caption one otherwise harmless photo with "I like this picture because my arm pit looks like a girl's vagina."
