vegan black metal chef


Guess what’s still awesome? Vegan Black Metal Chef.


Vegan Black Metal Chef returns with episode 13: vegan lasagna! Have you ever chopped mushrooms with an axe? (Is that an axe?) Then you haven’t chopped a mushroom, friend.

I will note that adding salt to boiling water doesn’t help your noodles boil any faster, so save your NaCl for the rest of the recipe. Now let’s get cooking!


Vegan Black Metal Chef episode 1, Pad Thai (2011)


What do Norah Jones, Christopher Walken,  the band “ ****edUp”, Vegan Black Metal Chef,  Sam Brown, nightmare of Eastern European folklore Krampus, the Catalonian Pooping Log, Dave Arnold, chefs Lidia Bastianich,  April Bloomfield, Kurt Gutenbrunner, Eder Montero, Alexandra Raij, Carlos Llaguno Morales and the voices of Adam Richman and Andrew Zimmern have in common?

They all foolishly agreed to appear in our scandalous, dark, action-packed fever dream of a Holiday Show which airs this Monday, December 12th at 10PM—when, presumably, the kiddies will be asleep.

Frankly, I think it’s our finest (and most disturbing and deranged) hour yet, a holiday classic. The above artists were—all of them—heroically good humored and generous with their time. And I’d like to give particular thanks to Sam Brown—whose appearance is particularly fearless, frightening  and so far from her “brand” as to make us all look like wussies. Thank you Sam. Never shall I make another snarky remark. You ****in’ rule.  Now wash that mouth out with soap. Your language is appalling! Thanks Norah Jones for learning to sing scatological ditties in Catalan—and for all your work on the show.  Christopher Walken. Now I can scratch a major item off my bucket list. And the rest of you…I am forever grateful.

Do NOT miss this. Christmas has never been stranger.

The Vegan Black Metal Chef shows us how to cook seitan

I totally forgot about this guy but just saw that he’s done four more black metal cookery videos since I last checked. These are all so amazing. I might need to cook along to one of these soon. Epic.

Vegan Black Metal Chef Episode 13 - Vegan Lasagna (by VeganBlackMetalChef)

the best pad thai recipe ever

So you guys have probably seen that “Vegan Black Metal Chef” show on youtube. I must have seen the first episode at least 10 times out of pure enjoyment o__o But I bet you haven’t tried to make the pad thai recipe he makes in that episode! It actually makes the best fucking noodle dish in the world.

½ cup sugar (NOT a typo hah)
½ cup crushed peanuts
2-3 tbsp tamarind paste
about a tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp garlic powder
½ cup water
less than a ¼ cup vinegar (i used white wine vinegar)
2-3 tbsp chili flakes
2 tbsp sriracha (a.k.a. rooster sauce!!)
5 cloves minced garlic
handful of chopped cilantro (save some to garnish later, it tastes better!)
2 tbsp peanut butter

Everything else
A pack of rice noodles, one of those brick-sized ones or whatever
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
a bunch of green onions, chopped
bean sprouts (optional)

Soak or cook rice noodles while you prepare sauce. All you do to prepare sauce is combine everything in that top list. Stir fry the tomatoes for a few minutes to get them a little mushy, then add everything else: the green onions, the bean sprouts, the rice noodles, and the sauce. Mix everything really well so that the noodles soak up all the flavor. Ta-da! Finished! Add some fresh cilantro as garnish if you want! :9

Vegan Black Metal Chef is back with a second video! This time he’s making a few different dishes. To be honest, I haven’t watched it yet (I’ve got this thing called WORK, people!), so you tell me what you think!

Also Wired* has an interview with him! I guess we know what it takes to get some mainstream attention for being vegan now. Way to go, Brian Manowitz. Well-played.

*Disclosure: I work at Wired but had nothing to do with this, I swear.

Check out episode 2 for a few easy vegan recipes, complete with custom recorded black metal music. God I love this.
