Mitú and go90 have teamed up to bring vegan fans a cooking reality show like no other.
Two chefs will battle head-to-head in a “high” stakes cooking challenge, where they must create vegan dishes for celebrity judges while high out of their minds. You read that right. The chefs brought onto the show will first have to smoke some weed before they are let loose in the kitchen to use their expertise to create some bomb vegan dishes. The winner of the competition will have their very own dish featured at Whiskey Baby, chef Jason Eisner’s new restaurant. Eisner, the owner of LA vegan spot Gracias Madre, and comedian Josh Blue join actress Marycarmen Lopez as judges.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect on the show.
First, Blue gets them nice and baked because “High Cuisine wouldn’t work any other way.”
Blue has his very own line of edibles with Mountain High Suckers called Josh’s Blue Dreams, making him the marijuana expert on the show. The comedian has Cerebral Palsy and uses marijuana for its medicinal properties, which ease his symptoms.
Once properly stoned, the chefs take to the kitchen and get to cooking.
Each week, the chefs will face a different challenge based on a theme. The first episode, which is currently live on go90, is Thanksgiving, or Danksgiving.
Finally, all the food is plated and submitted to the judges, who critique on looks and taste.
The judges then crown the winner. There can only be one every episode so these chefs need to deliver if they want the right to say they are the “High Cuisine” master.
