Andy Milonakis's New Cooking Show, 'The Makeshift Gourmet,' Features World's Priciest Hamburger Helper

Jan 14, 2013

Comedian Andy Milonakis, most recognizable from his MTV sketch show "The Andy Milonakis Show," has a new project that just might be the weirdest cooking show we've ever seen.

"The Makeshift Gourmet" is a web series in which Milonakis, whose other YouTube work suggests his predilection for good food, wastes uses elevated ingredients in everyday grocery items.

In the first episode, Milonakis cooks up what could be the classiest dish of Hamburger Helper ever, subbing in hand-ground Wagyu for the customary cheap ground beef. He also stops by a specialty store for $562.50-worth of black truffles. In the end, though, he winds up using the dried cheese product that comes in the Hamburger Helper box.

If that's not odd enough, actor David Arquette appears as his helper and inexplicably wears sunglasses the entire time.
