When Stoners Cook

“We’ll take the hottie–Cat Cora!”

This declaration begins one of the funniest episodes of Iron Chef America I’ve run into so far. Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, aka The Food Dudes, take on Iron Chef Cat Cora in an episode I caught last weekend. (Check FoodTV.com‘s website for other scheduled showings. There’s one tonight if you can tear yourself away from the Smithwick’s.)

Funny as hell, well worth the time, and I don’t give a shit what they look like, I’d hire ’em to cater the wedding–if I could afford them, that is. These guys look like your brother’s sk8tr buddies, or the guys who swiped your weed and then offered to sell it to you, but looks are deceiving in this case. The food looks delightlfully yummy and snobbish enough to please the biggest food snob. It seems the newest star-level caterers and chefs say “dude.” Gotta love that.

I won’t give out any spoilers, but watch the pignolios. Just watch ’em.
