Marzipan City is a place where anything can happen and the unorthodox is commonplace. In the middle of this bizarre city is a quaint little shop known as Mung Daal Catering, which is owned by Mung Daal, one of the ost accomplished chefs and well known in the entire world. However, things have become a bit hectic in the kitchen as of late, as Mung Daal has recently acquired a young apprentice named Chowder, whom he wishes to pass along all of his knowledge towards. Chowder is an energetic young lad who wishes to become the greatest chef in the world, but his love of food and his extremely short attention span often results in him causing unintended havoc.

However, they’re not alone. Truffles works at Mung Daal Catering and she takes the orders that her husband, Mung Daal, must prepare. Shnitzel, a rock monster, also helps out in the kitchen as he has worked for Mung Daal for years. Along the way, they’ll meet the many colorful and zany residents of Marzipan City, though there will always be new dishes to prepare and exciting recipes to follow.

Chowder Episode Review: "Gazpacho Stands Up"Rating: 3 likes, 0 dislikes

This episode of Chowder was the first one I saw as whole (Grubble Gum being the first, but I only watched a few minutes) and it was absolutely marvelous. Gazpacho is a great side character, and I loved to see an episode that centered around him. Mung Daal, my favorite character, spouted some pretty memorable lines which only added to the laughs. The jokes were pretty well done, and the comment on the "CN" screen bug was great. All in all, this episode was fantastic, and my third favorite. Read more

1x20: Mung On The Rocks recap: Mung Daal’s Catering has been commissioned to prepare a dish that requires a particular fish, so Mung Daal has decided to take the boys out into the wilderness in order to retrieve it. After checking to ensure that they have the proper equipment, they make their way outside, though Truffles stops her husband and asks him where he’s going. He explains the situation to her, which results in her asking him if he has forgotten anything. He tells her that he hasn’t and he continues to make his way outside, but when Truffles further attempts to convince him that he has forgotten something, he yells at her and insists that he hasn’t forgotten anything, slamming the door as he goes outside. Truffles looks on in disbelief, with a large “Happy 450th Anniversary” banner hanging from the ceiling above her; a bunch of confetti falls onto the ground and day quickly passes into night, with a sullen Truffles not moving an inch. The door opens and Chowder, Mung Daal and Shnitzel make their way inside, a little worse for wear. Truffles asks her husband if the fishing went well, in which he tells her that what’s important is that they made it back alive, and he asks her if she wants to kiss her conquering hero. Truffles angrily grabs a fish from Chowder’s head and slaps Mung Daal with it... read more.

1x19: Sniffleball recap: It’s the start of a new day in Marzipan City and all is well, except for the fact that Mung Daal has lost some of the utensils that he needs to do his job. However, when he goes upstairs in order to ask Chowder if he knows where they are, he discovers that he has all of the utensils in his bedroom. He watches Chowder as he socializes with the utensils, giving them a voice and praising them for being the best friends that a child could ask for. Mung Daal walks over towards the window, asking Chowder when he last went outside, but when he opens a blind, Chowder merely hisses at the prospect of going into the light. Mung Daal expresses that today is the perfect day for them to get out of the kitchen; Chowder mocks him by having the utensils repeat what he said, which causes Mung Daal to forcibly drag Chowder outside. The two of them make their way towards the local playground; Mung Daal attempts to tell his young apprentice that one needs to be social, but Chowder ignores him and instead grabs onto a pedestrian. When Mung Daal continues to drag him, the man’s clothing is ripped from his body and Chowder is sent flying off into the distance. Chowder exploits the opportunity to run away from Mung Daal, though his mentor manages to catch him and they continue their trek towards the local playground... read more.

The scene changes to Mung Daal Catering, where Mung Daal is wearing a hazmat suit while trying to pluck a fruit from a tree. Right as he successfully removes it, Chowder calls out his name and causes him to drop it on the ground, shrieking in terror. Chowder asks Mung Daal why they have to stay behind the protective wall; Mung Daal reminds his apprentice that puckerberries are extremely dangerous and that he once knew somebody who ate one and got sucked into his own mouth, though he expresses that a good chef knows how to use the berries in a non lethal fashion... read more.

Chowder, Mung Daal, Truffles and Shnitzel had just arrived at the festival grounds and were looking for their spot, though Mung Daal met up with an old friend of his, Kapusta.
