PCFG Deep Dish Podcast – Episode 5: Flan!

In this episode of Deep Dish, we take you all the way back to Ancient Rome where everybody’s favorite jiggly custard dessert, flan, was first created! Go on a mystical flan journey that spans several millenia, multiple civilizations collapsing, and all leading up to Japan creating versions of the dish that are larger than your face!


  • Flan has a lot of different names! And as usual, Britain gets it wrong.
  • Boobs. Loooots and lots of boob references in an episode about one of the bounciest desserts in the world.
  • The original recipes for flan kinda suck. They contained olive oil. And that wasn’t even the worst ingredient.
  • Flan is a surprisingly international food! There’s SO many variations of it out there, and so many ways to serve and eat it.
  • A very special edition of Shitty Old Recipes takes place, where, in the spirit of jiggly jiggly flan, we look through some old Jell-o mold abominations from the 1960s. They’re uh, they’re pretty bad.
