The nine episodes of "Heavy Metal Vegan Cooking" are a combination of food preparation, metal music and sketch comedy. Hogarth supplies the recipes and cooks, plays much of the music himself, writes the scripts and acts all the characters.
Hogarth doesn't use the videos to preach about his vegan choices. The episodes are funny, even goofy, and you can learn to cook vegan food from them.
Running gags play on the theme: A recurring character is Satan, who appears in episodes in which Hogarth describes cooking with seitan, a vegan meat substitute. A vigilante bunny appears in an episode called "Easter Caskets," and other guests include "Hulk Hogan," "Paula Deen" and the ghost of Michael Jackson
At the center of each episode is a dish and a recipe: Black bean burgers, for example, or spring rolls or guacamole. Most have his own twist: In his Wings of Seitan, he bakes the seitan, rather than boiling it, which he says gives it a meatier, tougher texture.
This is awesome! I like this guy, and it's cool that he's getting noticed! His food looks really great too.
