'Stephen Colbert' on Serious Eats

Video: Crispycones Pizza Cone on 'Colbert Report'

Crispycones appeared on the October 15, 2009, Colbert Report. Stephen gives it both a Tip of the Hat and a Wag of the Finger for being too easy to eat. The cone-shaped treat solves an age-old problem—namely the difficultly inherent in eating a slice of pizza. And, hah! The Crispycones website has embedded the Colbert video.

And so much more! Watch the video after the jump.... More

In Videos: Michael Pollan on 'The Colbert Report'

Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food, was on The Colbert Report last night. Colbert welcomed him with Sierra Mist soda, which definitely doesn't make Pollan's five-ingredients-or-less rule for virtuous foods. But Pollan politely took a sip and argued that he can still be American while avoiding American cheese (and other synthetic foods). For example, he encourages all parents to go the breast milk route, except we learn, thanks to a Mrs. Pollan in the audience, that he was not breast fed himself! Scandal.

In case you didn't watch last night, the clip of Mark Bittman on The Colbert Report. [Video, after the jump.] Colbert: "One aspect of conscious eating that I understand is that I like to eat things that were once conscious.

Colbert: Should We Bail Out Sbarro?

Everyone knows the finest cheese is aged. And no cheese slice sits out longer than the ones in Sbarro. So, should we bail out Sbarro? Well they do employ almost 6,000 people in 45 states. Plus, Sbarro is a mall staple. If they go under, who's next? Spencer's Gifts? Where will America go for our farts and fart-related accessories? On the other hand, sometimes at Sbarro, the Parmesan cheese gets stuck in the shaker and won’t come out as fast as I like. So ... f--k em.... More

John Legend's 'Nutmeg' Song on Stephen Colbert's Christmas Special

"I wanna nog your egg." If you watched Stephen Colbert's A Colbert Christmas last night, I'm sorry. That was an hour you'll never get back. Only marginally funny, the show's best bit was perhaps the John Legend performance. The R&B star played a visiting forest ranger singing a song about nutmeg. Legend: "I'll sprinkle your Christmas cream with my spice supreme Colbert: "What about all-spice?" "You know it leaves me cold as ice" "Cinnamon?" "Don't even think of putting that in" "Cardamom?" "It won't let me drop my love bomb" The video, after the jump.... More

In Videos: Cookie Monster on 'The Colbert Report'

"Me have crazy times in '70s and '80s. Me like the Robert Downey Jr. of cookies." —Cookie Monster, on 'The Colbert Report' Nation, last Thursday, Stephen Colbert got a surprise visit from the Cookie Monster on The Colbert Report, just as he was lamenting the fact that fruit had replaced cookies as American kids' after-school snack of choice. Downright un-American, he said. Last night, on Jon Stewart's Daily Show, the two fake newsmen had a little back-and-forth about Cookie Monster's appearance. Seems the blue dude trashed Colbert's green room after getting angry about his green-room request list. After the jump, videos of Cookie Monster's original appearance and the ridiculous terms of his rider, including triple-stuffed Oreos.... More

In Videos: Dickson Despommier Interviewed on 'The Colbert Report' About Vertical Farming
