The Cube Rule of Food identification was first outlined in a tweet by @Phosphatide (a then 25-year-old man named Brandon) and expanded into the cuberule.com website by Andre Arko. It defines the type of food by the location of starch elements that are structural to the food. (Such as bread, crusts, etc.)

The Cube Rule of Food identification was first outlined in a tweet by @Phosphatide and expanded into the cuberule.com website by Andre Arko. It defines the type of food by the location of starch elements that are structural to the food. (Such as bread, crusts, etc.)

In this typology, there are 7 types of food:

  • Salad (0 starches)
  • Toast (1 starch)
  • Sandwich (2 starches, typically in parallel planes)
  • Taco (starch on 3 planes)
  • Sushi (starch on 4 planes - wrapped around the rest of the food)
  • Quiche (starch on all sides of the food except one)
  • Calzone (starch completely surrounding the food)

Examples

The following are examples of each type:

Salad

  • Steak
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Fried rice
  • Spaghetti
  • Soup

Toast

  • Pizza
  • Nigiri sushi

Sandwich

  • Traditional sandwich between two slices of bread
  • Lasagna

Taco

  • Hot dog
  • Sub sandwich

Sushi

  • Falafal wrap
  • Pigs in a blanket

Quiche

  • Cheesecake
  • Soup in a bread bowl

Calzone

  • Burrito
