Homaro Cantu Video Speaks In Tongues

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Jul 31, 2009 5:20PM

Both Grub Street Chicago and LTHForum were abuzz yesterday by the video above featuring moto's Homaro Cantu and Ben Roche working their dark arts of the kitchen. The video shows Cantu and Roche brewing crumbled Dunkin' Donuts for cops, serving pizza-flavored photos to pizza deliverymen and making ice cream that doesn't melt at room temperature. Cantu asks in the LTH thread, "When was the last time we had a real paradigm shift in food? Get ready, because its about to happen and every top tier food company ceo is going to be scratching their heads trying to figure out what Moto has been up to with the crazy NDA's (non-disclosure agreements) and secrecy. Its almost time to let the ticking bomb go off. Tick tock tick tock tick tock..." Ellipses his.

Cantu calls the video "Future Food" and it looks very much like a teaser pilot to a possible tv series. Although what Cantu and Roche showcase in the video is stuff that moto is already known for, which begs the question: Is it really "future food" if you've been doing it for five years?
