|Adding massive amounts of ground beef soil to a "Meat Garden"|
What Epic Meal Time essentially is several twenty-something Montreal natives get together and concoct some massive meal. Now, it takes meals to the next level, usually involving meat and almost always involving bacon. This isn't a regular dish that they are preparing on the Food Network - no, they are preparing a feast with tens of thousands - if not hundreds of thousands - of calories. It is something that is totally within anybody's grasp to do and is essentially quite simple, yet, there is a simple brilliance to preparing gigantic amounts of caloric concoctions.
|On occasion, they do desserts, too|
Also, while the preparation of the food is interesting, there are several further fascinating elements to what they do (in addition to the epic music): 1) They include a caloric counter and fat counter to show the viewer just how any calories are going into their meal; 2) They drink lots of alcohol (primarily Jack Daniel's Whiskey, but also beer and Patron), which makes it seem totally unpretentious; and 3) The tongue-in-cheek usage of Hip-Hop language (such as "haters", saying things are "stupid", and taking cooking to "the next level".
|They make a lot of different elements, but eat it all|
Thus far, I've seen a small fraction of the episodes, but the ones I have seen make me hungrier for more.
