Food Network On South Park
Posted by Jillian Madison

Last night’s Food Network episode of South Park was absolutely hilarious. They somehow managed to cram almost every celebrity chef stereotype into a 22-minute episode, from Fieri’s ridiculous jewelry and lame use of the English language to Giada’s breasticles and Bobby Flay’s dumb Throwdown challenges. Combine all that with a side story about the Shake Weight, and you have one of the funniest South Park episodes of all time. They perfectly depicted how lame the Food Network and wanna-be celebrity chefs can often be.

Here are a few pics and video clips from the show:

You can watch the whole episode on Comedy Central.

    The moral of the episode, getting an old fashioned every now and again will relieve us of our need to watch food network and cook. Fraiche.

  2. BurgundyLee says:

    All the chefs looked like their real counter parts except Gordon Ramsay & unfortunately, they missed him by a lot appearance wise.

  3. SLC says:

    so…is it just me or is anyone else getting clips from their new musical instead of the episode clips? can’t view the entire episode either.

  4. SEA says:

    But Guy wasn’t wearing any rings!

    • Lana says:

      True. But at least the rib he’s holding isn’t phallic or anything. Nor is the sauce around his mouth suggestive … of … anything ….

  5. Knightro says:

    I bet Matt and Trey could have convinced AB to voice his own character.

    • Annicka says:

      Alton has enough of a sense of humor to do it, too! I’m so sad they didn’t take advantage of all the material they could’ve had with Sandra Lee. She’s a walking joke.

  6. Kim says:

    I think they read FNH

    This episode was so hilarious. I could barely breathe cause i was laughing so hard.

    By far the best thing was Giada. They seriously NAILED her – which is kind of sad because looking exactly like your South Park caricature is probably not a good thing….I also loved Randy and his obsession with “Crame Freesh” LOL

    13 years on the air, and South Park still has it. It has its hits and misses, but the hits usually outnumber the misses….

    • Andrew says:

      One of the best South Park episodes ever. I didn’t understand the joke behind the mispronunciation of “crème fraiche” though.

      • Robert says:

        I believe it was supposed to be a subtle jab at how stupid the Food Network and it’s blind “I’ll worship anyone on TV” followers are. FN mispronounces it, so the viewer takes it at face value and runs with it. It’s how Rachel Ray has a talk show.

        • adamo says:

          dude, this episode was about how awesome food network is. Don’t hate everything South Park makes fun of, thats not living.

          • Robert says:

            Right. That’s why the caricatures were so grossly bizarre, Jamie Oliver cried in a corner the whole time, and Sharon had to block the network in the house because her husband was beating off to it all day long. Sounds like a rousing round of support, especially with the “screw the FN stars” ending.

      • wagyu says:

        I think the joke behind the mispronunciation of “creem freesh” is that ingredients often get mispronounced on FN. For example, mars-ca-pone, chi-pol-tay, pap-per-ri-ka, etc.

    • Eric says:

      I’m pretty sure this episode of South Park will make sales of “Crame Freesh” skyrocket, and moreso than any Food Network program has made a product’s sales go up.

  9. Diane says:

    Damn, I missed it! Gonna have go check out Comedy Central now. :)

  10. Hookerbot says:

    One of the few SP episodes that literally had nothing but well-placed humor in it. Cartman’s impression of Ramsay was perfect.

  11. Cooker says:

    Best Episode….it is soooo great! I would love to see another spoof using more characters…Mario Batali was life like!!!

  12. MoreBeef says:

    I laughed so hard. Just the pics alone are enough to make me giggle again. Randy sitting on the couch shuckin’ the corn to Food Network was epic.

    Also the shake weight, I’m glad I’m not the only one who saw that infomercial and thought that it was solely designed to improve an individuals “old fashioned” skills LOL epic win by Matt and Trey.

    The celebrity chefs are awesome…I just wish they woulda had Bobby Flay mispronouncing chipotle. My personal pet peeve..LOL

  13. Chris says:

    Loved it!!

  14. Kristin says:

    I need an MP3 of Cafeteria Freesh’s theme song.

  15. siamkittie says:

    I’m always watching the No No Channel. I’ve watched the episode 2x already.

    Cooling gel. Here’s your cab fare. Going into sleep mode.


  16. Alex S says:

    I like my version of Fieri better! It was more douchetastic than their version. That being said that episode was hilarious, as much as I like what Jamie Oliver has to say, I was unable to not laugh at him crying in the corner. Giada was my favorite spoof, spot-on.

  17. Scott_PJ says:

    It wasn’t the best South Park episode, imo, but that didn’t stop it from being damn funny and satirical. Food Porn kind of has become it’s own culture in America.

    The Food Network parodies were dead on, their version of Giada absolutely killed me. I wish they could of made fun of Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee too, but I’m happy they went into it a good amount. And Cartman as Gordon Ramsay was so funny, especially since he used all of his little words right.

    I think the Shake Weight thing was a little tiresome, until the final act where we learn what the true purpose of the Shake Weight was…that was fantastic.

  18. C.K. says:

    i loved how Randy pronounced mozzarella how Giada does, as “mooz-uh-rrrrrrella” when he was making lunch in the cafeteria.

  19. Antony says:

    Lord. Stan’s dad getting off by sniffing the turkey’s butt. That killed me.

  20. gordonliu says:

    The joke associated with the mispronunciation is a running joke/comedic method employed by the writers of south park.

    they commonly mispronounce words…

    there are various possible reasons for the use of this comedic method…

    the most likely reason is that many of the shows satirize American media, and often times they utilize child like speech patterns or phrasing…

    I can think of a variety of random, intentional, mispronunciations used in various south park episodes…

    one very blatant example is the “Lake Tardicaca” episode.

    at the begining, the fake “warning” that presents the Intervention for Towely has a narration.

    they say”

    “Viewer discrEEtion is advised” (instead of “discr-eh-tion”

    often times, characters say “Gahl” instead of “gosh” or “god”


    “I’m doing it sharon, leave me alone, Gahl!”

    there are many other examples, but as I said, the main reason is that:

    It simply sounds funny.

    • gordonliu says:

      oh, also the most well known examples

      “super serial” instead of “super serious”

      cartman says “authoritahh” not “authority”

      in the “Follow that Egg” episode, Ms. Garison says:

      “whats wrong, you scarred of a little eeeegggggggg” with a wierd accent.

      they do it all the time. sometimes it has obvious meaning…

      but most of the time they do it to make the characters sound funny/stupid/unique

    • Scruffy says:

      Exactly. It’s the same show that has crowds actually say “rabble.”

      Or the goobacks episode where “they took our jobs” devolves into absolute gibberish by the end.

      I love Randy episodes. Only Butters comes as close to being as great. A good rebound from the craptacular Coon episodes the past 3 weeks.

      • KT says:

        Thank you for showing me I’m not the only one who didn’t like this latest three parter! SP three-parters have never been good.
        This was a good comeback though.

  21. Lee says:

    How is a guy masturbating to the food network funny? They didn’t even try to get the parodied chef’s voices close. I seriously don’t think throwing every foodie pop culture reference into an episode and adding fart noises is humor.

    The plots are stupid, the jokes are stupid, and they don’t put any effort into it. I fucking hate South Park, ugh

    • YourName1 says:

      I hear if you comment and whine about it more that the show will be taken off the air. Just sayin’.

    • nikkibot says:

      How is a guy commenting to the food network humor funny? They didn’t even try to get the trolling close. I seriously don’t think throwing every annoying whining complaint into a comment and adding fart noises is humor.

      The formats are stupid, the adjectives are stupid, and they don’t put any effort into it. I fucking hate Lee, ugh

    • Scruffy says:

      When has South Park ever tried to duplicate celebrity voices? Listen to what they did to Saddam Hussein.

    • jennylola says:

      guess what made it funny, lee? he was doing it in the same room the KIDS were in! thats what made it hilarious, and oh, so wrong…

  22. Boomie says:

    My boyfriend and I almost died at the mention of Giada’s gigantic head and huge tata’s.

    • Juan says:

      I think it’s funny how they exaggerated her … you know. I wonder what Giada, or the others thought of this episode.

  23. THE Holly says:

    I’m guessing that the South Park guys are Alton Brown fans. He was treated very kindly and even the credits for Good Eats were very good, do I detect some tenderness there?

  24. Derek says:

    It was pretty funny especially since it was uncensored…lol

  25. Juan says:

    That is sad when the Food Network has to be blocked by parental controls. Then again, as much as I like watching “Good Eats,” I never get that into the show.

  26. Bree says:

    this was like the best episode ever! i loved all of the FN chefs being on it, cuz they did such a good job at getting them all right. and the shake weight was funny too. like that it popped out change for the cab ride home. :P
