"What does 'fold in the cheese' even mean?"

I got sucked into Schitt’s Creek during lockdown one, and since then I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve now watched it start to finish three times. It was the perfect lockdown antidote, and now it’s the ideal show to throw on for a bit of background noise when you just don’t know what to watch.

So as a result, I now have an obsession with Dan Levy. I can be certain I’m not alone here, which is why the news of Dan Levy’s new show is just so good.

Dan has landed his own cookery show on HBO, called The Big Brunch, focusing on – you guessed it, brunch. The most important meal of the day, obviously. The show itself will be in the style of a reality competition, with aspiring chefs getting creative with their brunch dishes in order to win a “life-altering prize.”

In a statement about the show, Dan shared: “Everybody has a friend, a family member, or a co-worker that is extraordinary at what they do, they just need a leg up so that their talents can be appreciated on a larger scale.

“Thanks to an almost obsessive love of food, I’ve been lucky enough to come across many of those people in the culinary world – friends working out of cafes or food trucks, revolutionizing the menus at local diners – those special humans who create communities around their cooking, hoping to take their skills to the next level.

“I created this show for them, the local culinary heroes of America who deserve a spotlight. That, and who doesn’t want to watch maple syrup being poured slowly over a golden stack of perfectly cooked, creme brûlée inspired French toast?”

While we don’t have a trailer just yet, or even a release date (although it’s set for 2022 at some stage), you can place your bets that this is going to be sublime Sunday viewing.

Anyone else craving brunch of some sorts now?
