Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Being a vampire chef is hard. Here's a clip from IFC's sketch variety show Comedy Bang! Bang!, in which The League's Jason Mantzoukas guest-stars as vampire chef Emeril Lugosi. Lugosi, who's conducting a morning-show demo for his "classic backyard bourbon burger," must suffer through the chatty host's terrible vampire/cooking puns. When asked if he likes his burgers bloody, Lugosi snaps: "Look, I know what you're trying to do — I'm trying to tell you how to cook meat responsibly." Why name his cookbook Steaks Not Stakes, then? "The publisher called it that, they said we needed a hook to drive online sales... my agent should have told you I don't like this shit." The full episode airs tonight at 10p.m. on IFC, but for now, go watch:
