Here’s the official ‘Ted Lasso’ biscuit recipe

There’s a new recipe trending on TikTok — and it’s not chaffles or twisted bacon.

Fans of the hit Apple TV show “Ted Lasso” are making the series’ iconic biscuits in their own kitchens, and the result is a buttery delight.

In the show, Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from the Midwest hired to coach a pro soccer team in England despite knowing nothing about soccer, tries to win over the team’s owner, Rebecca Welton, by making his famous biscuit recipe.

What are biscuits in the U.K. are actually cookies in the U.S., and Ted’s shortbread cookies become a recurring theme in the series, which recently became the most Emmy-nominated freshman series ever with more than 20 nominations.

Jason Sudeikis, who plays Ted Lasso in the series, recently appeared on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna alongside fellow stars Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein to talk about season two of the show.

“We heard the real cookies are not that appetizing?” Jenna asked the cast.

Hannah Waddington, who plays team owner Rebecca in the show, admitted she wasn’t always a fan.

“I will be kind and say they are significantly better this season,” she said.

As a Plus-Size Woman, Here’s How I Protect My Mental Health From Diet Culture

anti diet special report bug

Hi there.

Welcome to my diary, friend.

No, you won’t hear a peep about my sex life. You won’t be entering a catalogue of my weird, petty obsessions. You will, however, find something that might make you feel a lot better as you move through the world. My name is Virgie, and I’ve worked in body positivity as a plus-size woman for almost a decade, helping to educate people on the harmful long-term effects of weight-based discrimination and to recover from body shame. I’ve written books and essays, and I host a podcast and lecture all over the country on these topics.

As you may know without expert-me telling you, living in our diet-obsessed culture can be brutal if you’re fat (also if you’re not, but it’s way worse if you’re fat, a woman, and especially a BIPOC woman, as I am). The world (everyone from “experts” on TV to random Internet trolls) feels free to criticize my body, treat me like a tax liability, make presumptions about how I eat and live and refuse me medical care because of bias about my weight. But I learned many years ago that my body is not a problem and

Nisei looks to usher in a new era of Japanese fine dining in S.F. Here’s a first look inside

San Francisco’s Japanese fine dining scene is entering a new era with next week’s arrival of Restaurant Nisei.

Opening Aug. 18 in the former La Folie space at 2316 Polk St., Restaurant Nisei will see chef David Yoshimura present modern Japanese dishes across 12 courses for $157. Formerly the chef de cuisine at San Francisco’s Michelin-starred Californios, Yoshimura is applying an American tasting menu format to traditional Japanese flavors. He’s also avoiding sushi, which currently dominates high-end Japanese restaurant experiences in the city.

Next door is Bar Iris, a cocktail lounge decked out with midcentury modern furniture and an emphasis on Japanese whiskey. Yoshimura hopes it’ll debut the same day as the restaurant.

Reservations for Nisei are available on Tock, and the restaurant is requiring proof of vaccination to enter.

The dining room at Restaurant Nisei in San Francisco features handmade oak tables and a black-and-white color scheme.

Nisei debuted as a pop-up about two years ago. Yoshimura served 10-course Japanese tasting menus and then, during the early months of the pandemic, stunning bento boxes for takeout from Mister Jiu’s. Regardless of the format, Yoshimura says his food is based on the principles of
