'Food Party': Sneak Peak Into the Surreal Cooking Show

On April 27, the new season of IFC's "Food Party" -- a colorful combination of puppet theater, mad creativity, hallucinatory storylines and even some cooking -- premieres with 20 new 15-minute episodes. Two episodes will run back to back Tuesdays on IFC, paired with "Dinner With the Band."

Last week, I did a visit to the show's Brooklyn, N.Y., sets, as host Thu Tran and her coterie of fellow young artists were building sets and props to prepare to shoot a new episode. There'll be more goodies coming closer to the premiere date, but in honor of the six-episode "Food Party" marathon airing Sunday, April 11, on IFC, here are some sneak preview photos.

Watch this space for more.
