What Exactly Netflix’s ‘The Curious Creations Of Christine McConnell’ Is All About

Published

on

Netflix is known for delivering surprising, yet always entertaining, original series, documentaries, and films. This includes the media service’s surreal new cooking/crafting/puppet show, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. Many viewers don’t have any clue how to describe the show, but it’s not as complex as it first appears.

Martha Stewart Meets Tim Burton

Author Christine McConnell gained an Instagram following in recent years for her gothic-inspired culinary and crafting posts. She turns classic baked goods (layer cakes, bread dough, chocolate-dipped strawberries, etc.) into ominous creations. She decorates her desserts with aliens, vampires, and more.

Nightmare on Film Street

McConnell’s account has been praised as “Martha Stewart meets Tim Burton.” But now, you don’t have to follow her Instagram account to see her creations. In October, Netflix released McConnell’s own series, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. Fans can’t get enough of the “bizarre, morbid, and beautiful” cooking program.

How To Describe McConnell

McConnell is described as a “strange, wraithlike woman with an immense talent for baking.” Her house sports Halloween decorations year-round. But from her appearance, one shouldn’t judge her too quickly.

While McConnell isn’t overly charismatic, she speaks calmly to her audience. She walks viewers through a step-by-step process of how to bake a tray of edible monsters. She’s referred to as a dark version of Martha Stewart or Bob Ross, but also a modern version of Morticia Addams.

After watching one episode, viewers won’t be able to resist the baking guru’s undeniable, yet mysterious, charm.

An Odd Group Of Guests

On her Netflix cooking show, McConnell deals with an odd group of dinner guests that act as lifelike puppets—a large werewolf, a cranky reanimated Egyptian cat-mummy, and a creature she sewed together from a variety of different roadkill.

As McConnell walks viewers through a new recipe, her monstrous guests provide their sarcastic comments and try to distract the baker. But McConnell always has a surprising trick up her sleeve.

If you love Halloween, this is another show to help get you into the spooky spirit.

What Caused the Rift Between Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians

Caitlyn Jenner changed the world twice. Once in 1976 when she took home a gold medal and set records in the Montreal Olympics as Bruce Jenner, and the second time in 2015 when she came out to the world as a transgender woman. Both as Bruce and as Caitlyn, she has been heavily tied to the Kardashian family pop-culture powerhouse through her 24-year marriage to family matriarch Kris. Since introducing herself to the world as Caitlyn, though, Jenner has had a fallout with the Kardashian family – and drama ensued. Here’s how it all went down, and where they are today.
