Can’t even boil water? Never fear. By watching the chef demonstrate his best kitchen moves, guys are sure to impress anyone who eats at their table and is a great alternative to any take-out, drive-thru, delivery or bowl of cereal any man can get. Food Mob is a new kind of culinary show for a new kind of chef.

New shows air every Thursday at 9 AM ET/6 AM PT. Follow Food Mob at http://www.twitter.com/foodmob.
“We’re excited about our new show Food Mob as it represents a fresh way to get our audience into the kitchen – a sort of “final frontier” for people that are daunted by all that is cooking,” said Ryan Vance, VP of Programming and Production, Revision3. “But aside from the culinary subject matter, the show offers a new level of interaction by capturing the audience where they already are – online.”
Revision3 is the first media company that gets it. Born from the Internet, Revision3 is the home of Internet Television, creating and producing shows for a new audience: passionate, committed fans who want to watch shows about technology, modern culture, video games, entertainment, music and comedy that entertain, educate and help to expand their life experiences.
