The latest ep of In the Mix with Matt FX features Matt’s mom, dad and at the very end... a whole gaggle of the BFD crew eating Mama FX’s homemade dumplings. It’s very sweet. Watch the whole season on Genius Kitchen!

Matt FX's mom never eats at restaurants. Why? She’s picky, thrifty, and can almost always cook it better herself! But Matt is determined to intro his mom to something fresh in New York’s culinary landscape. Will she like what she tries?

01/25/2019

Today our latest show premiered on Genius Kitchen. In The Mix with @mattfx (the man behind the Broad City soundtrack - also premiering today) is live on Facebook Watch and YouTube with new episodes every week for the next 10 weeks! Huge shoutout to @mattfx for bringing us along, the whole team at Rock Shrimp Productions, Alexandra Machover and the BFD PRODUCTIONS gang.
