How Four Empty Tuna Cans Can Feed A Crowd — DIY Foodies, Take Note! [VIDEO]

Right from the title of this video, there’s sort of a Jesus-vibe going on, if you’re down for that. Seamus Mullen, a chef and author has gifted us with a dubious claim: he’s going to feed a hungry crowd with four empty tuna cans.

If you’re like me (and you are, more than you’ll ever know) you were hooked by the title alone. When I saw it, I was like “Well, what the hell does that mean?” Fortunately, this isn’t one of those questions that we’ll never get answered, like “Why do bad things happen to good people?” or “Why do hot dogs come in packs of 10 while hot dog buns come in packs of eight?” And while the answer to feeding a crowd with four empty tuna cans ends up being less Jesus-style magic and more MacGyver-style bbq-grilling ingenuity that also involves a big piece of delicious prime rib, it’s safe to say that we all all learned a little something about cooking, courtesy of Seamus and Epicurious.

And considering that I’m terrible at cooking, but love to eat, I’d say I learned a lot. Everybody wins today … except the vegans.
