Food Party

This is why some higher deity gave us You Tube! Thu Tran’s TV series, Food Party, is just nuts, so truly terrible it becomes a work of art.

Shown on the Independent Film Channel (IFC) in the US it’s the most original cooking show on television, probably because it’s not just about the cooking. It also features characters (including E.P.S. (Especially Psychic Spud), his cousin E.S.P (Especially Special Potato), Ice Cream Cone, and the Devil). This is what the UK needs.

It really does offer an insight into the finer points of cookery with lines such as “I really love eggs. Eggs are very wonderful and versatile.” So what is it like? Imagine watching a Fraggle Rock version of master chef whilst enjoying weapons grade narcotics and your close. This episode, or Applesode synopsis says it all.

After running out of apples for her apple-stuffed, caramel-coated pork chop recipe, Thu invites Johnny Appleseed over for an apple party. Against Johnny’s advice, Thu travels to Mount Avocado to search for the mystical “White Tiger” apple and battles a Viking heavy metal band along the way.
