The Simpsons Preview: "The Food Wife," with (bleep) Ramsay, Bourdain, Batali and more
Quick! Can you name the celebrity chefs?
This Sunday night, at 7 p.m. on FOX, The Simpsons will dish up a food-centric episode, in which oh-my-god! star chefs Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay all appear in animated cameos. It's all part of a weird dream that Marge has about starting a food blog called "The Three Mouthketeers," which also involves Bart and Lisa. Predictably, Ramsay gets bleeped (and reduces Marge to tears), Bourdain calls himself a "food bad boy" and Homer, who Marge disses, strips down to his tighty-whiteys while diving face first into La Refrig.
If you want a sneak peek of the video clips and a more detailed synopsis (but no spoilers), flip the page.
Marge takes Bart and Lisa on a weekend excursion, but when an unexpected restaurant detour awakens their taste buds, fellow foodies Amuse Bruce and Fois Garth inspire them to start their own food blog, "The Three Mouthketeers." They score an exclusive reservation at Springfield's premiere modern restaurant, but Marge has an unsettling dream during which Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, and Mario Batali lead her to reconsider extending the invite to Homer. Later, Marge directs Homer to a different type of cooking lab where he gets into a bind with law enforcement authorities. -- Written by Fox Publicity
