Deep Dish, Twisted Food History! – Podcast Episode 18: Gingerbread Men!

In the first 2021 edition of Deep Dish, we take a look at a beloved Christmas cookie, and find out why they’re so associated with Christmas!  Are gingerbread cookies medicine?  Which came first, gingerbread loaves or gingerbread cookies?  What connection do these wholesome cookies have to Roman orgies?  Listen now to find out!

Highlights

  • A brief discussion of our New Year’s Resolutions and the new foods we want to make in 2021.
  • Learning about molasses and that time it killed 21 people… in absolutely the last way you’d expect. 
  • Queen Elizabeth I set the bar really high in the area of impressive treats for guests!
  • Story time as we review the fable of the gingerbread man, Shrek, and a random video game series from the Amiga days. 
  • The surprisingly horny history of gingerbread men, including a brief tangent about Japanese girls putting pubic hair and blood into Valentine’s chocolate! (It… makes sense in context.)
  • Defending Taco Express Plus in Selden, NY from 1-star review trolls in another Review Roast!

Episode 19: Off Topic! Super Bowl Foods By State! Deep Dish: Twisted Food History!

In this off-topic episode of Deep Dish, we look at another Google Trends map which shows some interesting search results from different U.S. states related to what kinda Super Bowl foods they're looking to make! After this, we tear apart an op-ed written by possibly the richest, most spoiled douchebag on Planet Earth, who published an entire article complaining that his vacation to Hawaii, in the middle of a pandemic, had to be cancelled. We finish up with a mind-boggling edition of Shitty Old Recipes which makes up for its short ingredient list by being truly confusing.
