I often think about which modern innovations, mini-miracles, if you will, are my favourites. Laser eye surgery is right up there, along with online reservations for library books, and dutch ovens by Le Creuset.
But now, I am thinking hard about adding another present-day invention to my list of faves. It’s the spaghetti cone.
Yes, this little gem has just arrived in Edmonton, care of Seble Amelga, the owner of Tiramisu Bistro (10750 124 St). The cone, manufactured in New York, has been a boon to street food lovers and others devoted to eating while walking (because sometimes plain old busy people do that, too).
The new cone launches at the Bistro on June 21 for the Make Music Edmonton festival along 124 Street. But would also be great for anyone needing to eat spaghetti while going to the 124 Grand Market on Thursday evenings, or anyone who fancies a stroll around the neighbourhood while chewing.
The spaghetti cone can be filled with a variety of spaghetti/sauce combos from the bistro (including formaggio, asiago cream sauce and mushrooms, marinara and aglio olio) for the special price of $11 on June 21. You can tuck in a couple of meatballs for $5 extra.
The Guardian wrote a great story on this innovation when it first came to New York.
