We’ve seen a lot of animated gifs – most of them are some crazy cat/dog/weird meme.

The drop-down header menu, with the slot-machine-like icon animation is another great touch. And don’t miss the “Chefs” area – http://www.visual-kitchen.com/#Chefs – a cool and brief use of Flash, that enhances the rest of the site.
