A film by Jeff Warmouth. An epic of vegetable proportions: this live kung-fu satire with an all-vegetable cast is an ironic tribute to the martial arts film genre. E-Gu-Pah (Johnny Eggplant-Li) battles to wrest the scroll of the Ultimate Flavor Enhancement from the evil Ka-Ba-Ji (Raymond Cabbage-Wong). In Vegetablese with English subtitles.

Kung-fu Kitchen sprang from a body of work grounded in what I had pared down to the essentials of mt life: comedy and cooking. To this stir-fry I added my love for contemporary martial arts films, perceived through a think lens of irony.
