Vegan Black Metal Chef
: This home cook (real name: Brian Manowitz) has garnered more than 1.4 million views with his first YouTube video, “Episode 1 Pad Thai
,” in which he cooks on a pentagram and uses such epic tools as a mace and daggers. His website
, which encourages viewers to “come learn vegan cooking set to Black Metal with a dash of mysticism,” includes information on him and his goth knives, as well as fan merchandise for sale. He may be a little out there for the Food Network, but a personality like this may be just what the food truck scene needs for re-ignition. More episodes
are now in release.
