So last night, The Colbert Report was food, food, and more food! Nothing like a few laughs to go along with that $125 slice of pie. While commenting über expensive dishes is a bit passé, this episode was pretty damn funny. During the episode, host Stephen Colbert decided to dash around New York City and have one of the most expensive three-course meals ever. Laughs after the jump!

While I was knocking out some 9-5 work a few minutes ago, I had last nights Colbert Report playing in the background. However, my attention quickly moved away from databases and spreadsheets as soon as I heard the words “meat loving American.” Take about 5 minutes and watch this schaweet clip! Mmmm… shmeat!
Tuesday night was a double dip of pleasure for me. Not only did I get my fix of The Colbert Report, but, Stephen was kind enough to have a foodie themed interview. Mark Bittman, a blogger on NYTimes.com, author, and socially conscious cook, talked with Colbert about “eating without thinking.” It’s always funny to see Stephen interview people who are obviously uncomfortable when put on the spot.
Enjoy the video and if it pleases you … pick up a copy of Bittman’s newest book: Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating. Even if you don’t want that one – I STRONGLY SUGGEST you grab How to Cook Everything. I think it belongs in most everyone’s kitchen (it is indeed in mine).
