- #13 Home Alone (1990) & Mac and Cheese
Paul and Jeremy discuss kid politics on a global scale, the game theory of Sylvester Stallone and the sexual politics of donuts. All of these things are related to the seminal Christmas movie, Home Alone. Jeremy treats us to a delicious recipe for Home Invasion Mac And Cheese.
Home Invasion Mac & Cheese Recipe
-All Purpose Flour Milk (1 carton)
-Medium cheddar cheese (1 BRICK GRATED)
-Creamy cheese like Havarti (1 BRICK GRATED)
Boil some well-salted water Make a roux. Melt a stick of butter (or two) and slowly add flour, stirring constantly. Once the flour is incorporated with the butter add more. Do this a little bit at a time until it has a smooth paste-like consistency. If you add too much flour, just add more butter. Slowly add milk to the roux. One cup at a time. The goal is to make a smooth creamy sauce that has the consistency of gravy that is on the thin side. Once you get there start adding in the cheese one handful at a time. Incorporate each handful until the sauce has the consistency of a thick gravy and slightly more orange in colour. Reserve 1/3 of the grated cheese.
Add pepper and salt to taste. Boil the elbow pasta until it is just about half cooked. On the firm side of al dente. Strain off the water and rinse with cold water to slow the cooking process. Add the noodles to a tinfoil baking tray or any baking tray that makes you feel good. Mix in the creamy cheese sauce. Make sure the noodles are well mixed in. Top with the leftover cheese and place in a 400-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese on top is melted and the whole thing is bubbling. Broil for a few minutes to crisp up the cheese on top. Serve, but don’t eat it as you have to go deal with home invaders.

- #8 Ratatouille (2007) is an Allegory for Libertarianism and an Omelette
Paul gets fired up explaining how Ratatouille is a libertarian propaganda film while Jeremy goes deep on French cuisine and the benefits of foodcations.
The French Omelette – Mushroom and goats cheese
This is a really simple one. Not too many moving parts, but the technique is where the challenge comes in. You will definitely have to work your way through a few deformed omelettes before you get it right. Even I still struggle with it.
A knob of butter
A frying pan- not too big. If you have too much surface area your omelet gets too thin and becomes a weird egg crepe
Chives- finely chopped
Onions- finely chopped
Mushrooms- sliced vertically
Tomme de Chevre de Pays- or any harder goat’s cheese. Shredded on the finest setting your shredder has
Sauté the onions until translucent and add in the mushrooms. Sautee both until the moisture is drawn out of the mushrooms and everything is getting caramelized. Remove from the heat and set this aside.
In a small bowl, beat 3 eggs until the yolks and whites are combined. Heat up your pan and add in the butter to coat the bottom. Pour in the eggs and keep them moving by dragging the liquid from the outside in and allowing more to take its place this will prevent burning and keep your omelette fluffy.
Once you have a semi-cooked layer over a fully cooked bottom, add in the mushrooms and sprinkle liberally with the cheese.
Now comes the flip. If you want to be fancy, make sure the edges of your omelet have released from the pan and it is moving freely. As if you are sauteing vegetables flip the egg over on itself using the rim of the pan. The goal is to make it into an omelette burrito.
If this fails and you throw mushrooms all over yourself roll it over with a spatula and call it a day.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chives for garnish.1h 12m | Nov 11, 2022
- #7 Annie Hall (1977) & Breakup Brisket
Paul and Jeremy discuss the mating habits of New York City Jewish intellectuals. Jeremy breaks down the film on a cultural level while Paul chimes in with film nerd observations. We try to get through this podcast without get pre-cancelled and Jeremy delivers a spectacular traditional Jewish brisket recipe made to mend broken hearts.
Break up brisket
You will need:
A 3 or 4 pound brisket – fat cap trimmed. You can use a whole brisket or sometimes you can just buy the flat. This is the portion of the brisket that provides the long slices. The point is the fatty section that provides a lot of flavor, but is harder to slice properly.
2 bottles of Heinz sweet chili sauce
One packet of Lipton onion soup mix
A large roasting pan
An oven that has been preheated to 300 degrees F
How to make it:
Mix the chilli sauce and soup mix in a bowl until combined. Put the brisket in the pan and cover with the sauce. Let it cook at 300 for about 3 or 4 hours. Start testing for tenderness at the 3 hour mark. If a toothpick or fork can be pushed in without any resistance, you’re good.
Cut the slices against the grain and pour the left-over sauce on top.1h 29m | Nov 3, 2022

- #5 The French Dispatch (2021) & Deviled Eggs
Paul and Jeremy explore the geometric precision of Wes Anderson's most food forward film. Blackbird Pie, Blasé Oyster soup and City-Park Pigeon Hash are just some of the food presented in this most Wes Andersony of Wes Anderson films. Jeremy's recipe of the day is elevated Deviled Eggs.
The French Dispatch: Deviled eggs
- 6 large eggs
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar… you can use apple cider if you want to feel superior
- salt and pepper, to taste
- paprika or chives or both… you naughty so and so
First things first, how to boil the perfect egg. You don’t want any of that weird green shit in your deviled eggs.
Place 6 eggs in a pot of cool water and put that on the stove until the water comes to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat and let the eggs sit in that hot water for 11 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the hot water and submerge in an ice bath until cool to the touch.
Carefully remove the shells and slice the eggs in half. Gently remove the yolks without destroying the shape of the whites. This takes practice.
Mash the egg yolks through a sieve (or just with a fork in a bowl if you aren’t too fancy). Once finely mashed, add the mayo, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix gregariously until smooth.
Scoop equal parts of the mixture back into the egg halves and sprinkle paprika and/or chives on top.
Serve on a silver platter.1h 38m | Oct 19, 2022
