Welcome to the first animated cooking show hosted by an appetizer. Deep Fried, Live! with Tako the Octopus is an entertaining, enlightening, and often dangerous look at the mysteries and methodology of modern food preparation. It’s the ultimate culinary spectacle, offering secret ingredients (that refuse to be cooked), in depth cooking science, printable recipes, and direct links to the latest cookware and ingredients. It’s also a thorough exploration of how much damage one octopus can do with an unlimited supply of kitchen artillery.

In this episode, Chef Tako explains the science behind baking great chocolate chip cookies, deals with some childhood fears, and has a conversation with... his mother. Psychologically stable? Let's not jump to conclusions.

Mabye being a chef helps,

This has to be one of the most origional flash movies out there. I can't believe that cooking can be so entertaining! Kudos to the crew for making a cooking site into a pop revolution (well, on a small scale, but growing nonetheless...)

Personally, learning to cook from an octopus rocks!
