The Five Must-Watch Food Videos of the Week

New, 1 comment

In this week's roundup of new videos, the creative people of Fog and Smog parody the cocktail scene, a pretty look at Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad, Anthony Bourdain gets deep with Eric Ripert, Anita Lo and April Bloomfield have a chat with Google, and a few food truck owners open up about the business. And this week, a little bonus video: a recap of North End Grill's Family Meal for Eater Exclusives.

1) Mocking Mixologists:
Fog and Smog, the people who brought us "Whole Foods Parking Lot," are back with "Mixologist," a rap parody of the mixology hype. There's oversized ice cubes, wax mustaches, secret passwords, and a catchy chorus: "Hey Mr. Mixologist, did you have to go to college for this?"

2) EMP and The NoMad in Circles and Squares:
Here's a very pretty and geometrically stunning video by Made Nice, the newly named restaurant group of Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad:

3) Anthony Bourdain Opens Up on Eric Ripert's Show:
The first episode of Eric Ripert's new YouTube Show On the Table features his buddy Anthony Bourdain. They talk sex, drugs, rock n' roll and, of course, food. In this segment, Bourdain gets deep while cooking up a Portuguese Seafood Stew:

4) Anita Lo and April Bloomfield Talk Business:
Anita Lo and April Bloomfield sit down for a chat with Google to discuss early aspirations, Top Chef Masters, beating Michael Symon on Iron Chef, and Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Taco:

5) Confessions of a Food Truck Owner:
A couple of NYC and Portland restaurateurs discuss the whys and hows of starting a food truck business. The "why" almost universally seems to be "because I got laid off in the recession," but the "how" is a little more interesting:

Bonus: And for some extra food porn, here's an inside look at North End Grill's special Family Meal for Eater Exclusives:
