Finalist in Weird

About The Food Surgeon

A Seattle-based ”culinary practitioner” who is neither a chef nor a surgeon, The Food Surgeon started posting YouTube videos in early 2016, beginning by “Dissecting a Cutie (Californian Mandarin Orange).” With his sterile operating table, blue latex gloves, and scalpel, he undertakes daring—if wildly unnecessary—procedures on everything from strawberries to Oreos (transplanting the latter’s cream inside a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup). He creates candy hybrids straight out of childhood fantasies, in surgical circumstances that sometimes feel more like an adult’s nightmare. No matter if you find them funny or frightening, there is no question that The Food Surgeon’s meticulous videos leave you hypnotized with hunger.
