I tend to eat any food that has A. Cheese on top of it B. Does not appear on any of the food pyramids C. Has not fallen on the floor or D. Causes cancer in my rats. I’m what is known in the foodie community as a junk foodie. I love to cook and bake, but I don’t do it. I don’t go out to many overpriced restaurants because, you guessed it – they,re overpriced.
I am pretty content with my new plant based diet of Trader Joe’s soft pretzels, Taco Bell spicy potato tacos, or white rice. My old diet of chili cheese fries and a Diet Coke took a toll on my health. Recently while I was scanning the reader section of blogs that I follow I came across a post on the blog from Australia. You should check out what comes out of that country. Some really clever, wombat-shit, crazy, funny stuff.
One blog post that caught my eye featured a Youtube video from the Australian comedy duo of Kane and Kate testing out a food mixer. Those two are hysterical. I wanted more so I checked out their Youtube page. They have a series on Youtube called The Katering Show. The premise is simple: The journey of a food intolerant and an intolerable foodie. The blonde, Kate McLennan, is a foodie and the brunette, Kate McCartney, is food intolerant. Together they hysterical demolish the concept of the traditional cooking show. It’s brilliant. It’s fun. It’s groundbreaking.
As a former Hollywood talent agent, I kinda get squishy in my pants when I see so much talent all in one place. Together these girls are a comedic force that needs much wider recognition. I wanna help them out any way I can. You can follow them on all the typical social media platforms.
Both Kates are talented actresses in addition to both being gifted comediennes. They previously teamed up and made the award-winning comedy, Bleak: The Web Series, where their on-set catering was largely made up of vegetable lasagnas from Costco. Bleak is currently in script development with the ABC, where The Kates hope to turn the show into a full half-hour series. This would be welcomed news considering some of the crap ABC is currently churning out. Can anyone say, “Fresh Off the Boat” or that dreaded, “Modern Family”?
The real foodie of the two is McLennan. The other, as previously mentioned is food intolerant, much like yours truly, Mr. Brick. You can read my much-celebrated blog post about my own food intolerance battle here.
Have a yummy day.
