‘The Katering Show’, A Gut-Bustingly Hilarious Parody Cooking Show

The Katering Show is a hilarious cooking show starring an Australian duo of Kates: Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. McLennan serves as a foodie chef preparing meals for McCartney, who has a tragically large amount of food intolerances (note the large intestine in their logo). This results in bizarre, disgusting substitutions in recipes—calcium tablets for cheese in a quesadilla, for example—and constant mockery and references to the dangers of McCartney defecating her pants. McLennan and McCartney brilliantly parody the cutesy smugness of foodie culture in each gut-busting episode.

Episode 1: “Mexicana Festiana

In this episode The Kates explore the cultural phenomenon/plague of food trucks and eating in gutters by creating a food intolerant-friendly Mexican quesadilla, then eating it in a gutter!

Episode 2: “Ethical Eating

As an ex-vegetarian, McCartney wants to be thoughtful about the meat that she eats. And as a wanker, Mclennan wants to use her new pressure cooker. In this episode The Kates prepare a ragu that is food intolerant-friendly AND made from a non-cute animal.

Episode 3: “We Quit Sugar

In an attempt to live forever, and become just like their Instagram idol, Sarah Wilson, McCartney and McLennan give up the sweet stuff; sugar. Please Note: This episode is booze, sugar, gluten, fructose, lactose and personality-free.

Australian media personality, journalist, and blogger Sarah Wilson even wrote a blog post in response to “We Quit Sugar,” taking it all in good fun.
