Top 5 Cooking with Dog Episodes

Posted By on Thu, Jan 5, 2012 at 1:00 PM

First, everyone relax! It's a cooking show about a woman who cooks with her dog. Second, his name is Frances, he's internet savvy, he wears many hats (figuratively and literally), and he loves to sit on the kitchen counter and narrate each episode while his mom (girlfriend? beard?) does the cooking. SFoodie is rightfully obsessed with Frances so get excited for some unsanitary deliciousness via our five favorite episodes. Take it away, dog!

5. Kohaku Namasu (Pickled Daikon and Carrot Salad)

It's a new year's recipe, so we have to include it. Plus, Frances asks for votes in some YouTube contest at the end, and it's truly amazing. If you do one thing for me today, please pay my rent. If you do another thing, please get to the end of this video to see Frances using a PowerBook. He's good in the kitchen, he knows how to work a computer, and he can talk -- he's really got it all!

4. Christmas Crepes

Although the holidays have passed, nothing beats Frances in a Santa hat. Plus, I swear, Frances is sleeping standing up for over half of this episode. Quit sleeping on the job, dog! Okay, okay: Keep sleeping on the job. It's adorable.

3. Inarizushi

Those chewy tofu pouches! That irresistible sweet rice! That dog falling asleep! It's almost too much. ALMOST.

2. Chocolate Cornets

Actually, I just really want to make these. See, Cooking with Dog is not only adorable/unsanitary, it also really teaches you how to cook. Miracles upon miracles.

1. Bento Box

An instant classic. If this doesn't make you consider cutting a carrot into the shape of a starfish, I'm worried for your soul. I love you, Frances and Frances' Mom!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
