A top chef recently showed TikTok how to remix a McDonald's Happy Meal into a gourmet dish, but the result seems to only be making the internet angry and a little grossed out.

The video shows top chef Amy Brandwein making pasta out of fries, chicken nuggets and a few apple pies, and honestly, we have to wonder why she'd ruin a perfectly good Happy Meal.

Think back to when you were a kid, didn't everything seem so blissful and simple? It was a time when worries ceased to exist and time stood still. From the smell of crisp fall air to the sound of crunchy coloured leaves — seasons changing felt exciting.

Autumn memories were made on scenic road trips down country roads and in picturesque apple orchards. The magic of Halloween was always just around the corner. Wouldn't you do anything to go back to those good old days?

As a kid growing up, an unreal cake consisted of a picture of Barney placed onto a cake from the grocery store. These days, things are definitely different. But in the best way possible.

Whether you like cake or not, you have to admit that when cakes are made into pieces of art, they're crazy to look at. It takes the cake decorators so much time to get everything perfect, and that's a huge talent. There are so many talented cake decorators in Ottawa, but these ones stand out in the crowd.

Kingston never stops surprising us, making it one of the most underrated cities to visit in Canada. Perched right beside Lake Ontario already gives the views necessary for a dream city, but it's proven meal after meal that its culinary standards are not to be missed. The best part about Kingston is not just the fact we have the most restaurants per capita in Canada, but we also have a huge variety of locally owned restaurants. These are places where people don't just open it to feed you a measly meal - but to give you a mother f*cking experience. We're talking locally sourced foods that make your Ramen Noodles seem like cardboard (even more than they already do). We're talking about a wine and beer list so meticulously crafted it seems like a Da vinci code. And obviously, WE'RE TALKING AESTHETICS PEOPLE! You think someone wants to stamp their name on an ugly looking restaurant? You're definitely not in Kingston.

The restaurant scene is hitting another level, that's not a question. The question is who is eating out at these fine establishments? Kingston is unique in many ways, but one standout is the way that the population grows in numbers from September to April- the students pour in. That means we've got every type of restaurant here for every type of person. From student budget friendly places, to the "I'm gonna go ahead and forget it I just worked for 12 hours straight" splurge worthy spots.
