Chopped 420 with Comedian Ron Funches
Chopped 420 with comedian Ron Funches today on Dazed and Infused with Latham Woodward only on cannabis radio. According to the press info, in each hour-long episode of Chopped 420, the chefs must try to please the palates of a panel of recurring judges, including chef Esther Choi, drag performer and cannabis activist Laganja Estranja, chef Luke Reyes, chef Sam Talbot, and comedian Tacarra Williams, if they want to avoid being chopped. Episodes will include chefs trying to make dishes that use spot prawns and borscht, something called “chocolate dentures,” and the not-very-appetizing-sounding combo of armadillo eggs and eel.
Chopped 420 isn’t the first culinary competition to emphasize weed cuisine. Portland-based chef Leather Storrs was featured on a Netflix show called “Cooked With Cannabis,” which premiered last year on Netflix. Like the popular “Chopped” show on Food Network, “Chopped 420″ will challenge chefs to prepare delicious meals with unpredictable ingredients. But “Chopped 420″ adds a twist. As the press information promises, the show will break new ground, “with each episode featuring four budding cannabis chefs who are challenged to create tasty and mind-warping dishes through three rounds – appetizer, entrée, and dessert – from a mystery basket of ingredients for a chance at winning the $10,000 grand prize. Besides scouring the Chopped pantry for ingredients, each competitor must also navigate the Chopped greenhouse for cannabis or CBD-infused products to incorporate into their dishes.”
