Duff Goldman and His Puppet Crew Explore the Science Behind Your Fave Dishes and Desserts
Duff’s Happy Fun Bake Time will stream exclusively on discovery+ starting Thursday, April 29.
Join Duff Goldman in his laboratory kitchen along with his puppet crew as they explore the science behind cooking and baking to create popular foods on Duff’s Happy Fun Bake Time, the new discovery+ series from The Jim Henson Company. Each of the six half-hour episodes is a flavorful adventure that goes beyond food rules and recipes to discover how ingredients work together to create delicious dishes and desserts. With comedy and whimsical fun, Duff and his entertaining puppet friends teach fundamental cooking techniques and tasty, easy-to-make recipes that inspire chefs of all ages to experiment in the kitchen. It’s always a food adventure with Duff and his friends!
“I think cooking is absolutely fascinating and I wanted to make a show that explained why things happen the way they do in the kitchen. When I understand the science behind the food I make, I somehow feel more connected to it and I wanted to share that with everyone,” said Duff Goldman.
In the land of Bakersburg, Duff goes on a journey of food discovery with his puppet team created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. There's Couscous, his robot sidekick and sous chef; Dizzy, the enthusiastic industrial mixer and literal elephant-in-the-room who loves to stick her nose into everything going on in the kitchen; Edgar, the crabby crab straight out of the Chesapeake Bay; S’Later, the wise and quizzical slow-moving sloth; and Dragon Oven, who communicates with roars, hiccups, and smoke. Duff is also regularly visited by his musical grocer Geof (played by Duff’s real long-time executive sous chef, and songwriter, Geof Manthorne).
In each episode, Duff and his friends learn interesting science lessons with food experiments, from what happens if you bake a birthday cake without eggs, to why patience is the most important ingredient to baking the Best Bread on Earth, and why taste buds tingle with delight when mixing salty and sweet flavors. The fun doesn’t stop as Duff and his gang explore cake, bread, ice cream, pasta, chocolate, and other favorite food items.
