Risotto Is Just Hot, Wet Rice
Not since a little-known BBC show called Posh Nosh
came out about 10 years ago have I come across a show quite like this. Aussie comedians Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney have joined forces and put together their very punny take on cooking programs The Katering Show
The web series is six 7-minute episodes in which the two hosts put their dead-pan spin on the increasingly ridiculous modern world of food: from absurd intolerances, to fad diets, to expensive kitchen appliances and the increasingly ridiculous obsession with photographing every meal.
For an idea of the show's comedic sensibilties, I give you this excerpt from their web page; a delightful bio of one of the show's hosts who has been dragged into this experience by her food-obsessed friend:
"Kate McCartney has been interested in food since never. If you try to engage her in conversations about food and/or cooking, she will push you into the sea. In fact, her most successful recent culinary experience was when she saw a thing on the floor, picked it up and tried to eat it. It was a button."
I implore you to not only watch the episodes, but scour
the website. It is absolutely laden with comedic gems. I have not laughed to myself so much in a very long time. More please!http://thekateringshow.com/
