I Think We'll All Want To Check This Out: Thu Tran, Food Party, And IFC

Monday, June 08, 2009

So I got some info sent in via e-mail (thanks John) about a new show on IFC which is going to star Thu Tran called Food Party airing on the IFC channel tomorrow (that's June 9th people) at 11:15 pm.

Here's the scoop:

Food Party is a mind-bending, non-reality cooking show with Thu Tran as your hostess, a cast of unruly puppets as culinary aides, and a cavalcade of fictitious celebrities as surprise dinner guests. Shot on location in a Technicolor cardboard kitchen as well as other foreign and exotic cardboard locations, each episode will or will not instruct you on how to prepare wild gourmet multi-course meals with ingredients you probably have on hand in your kitchen already, such as pretzel rods, eggs, narwhal lungs, bizarre plot twists, secret ingredients, and pizza. After all, you never know who might show up for dinner.

Here's a "behind the scenes" video that introduces the cast of Food Party and gives a little flavor (no pun intended) to the show.

The NY Times recently posted a review for Food Party, here's the link.
