As the host of Carnival Eats, Noah Cappe samples all sorts of wacky, decadent and over-the-top carnival food. But there’s one item he’s still looking forward to: a sweet and savoury creation he calls the ‘Clubbel’.
“I’m still waiting for someone to do the funnel cake club sandwich,” says Noah. “You’ve got funnel cake, your turkey, bacon, cheese and another funnel cake. Then, turkey cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, whatever you want, and put another funnel cake on top. Cut that in half and you have a funnel cake club sandwich. A Clubbel!”
As Noah explains, the Clubbel™ just makes sense.
“Funnel cake is one of the pillars of carnival foods,” he says.
“The funnel cake itself is deep fried batter dough. It’s like a doughnut but sprung out in a twisted, curvy, tangle that gives you more of that crunchy golden outside part that everyone loves. It’s just around the outside because it’s intertwined within itself,” he says, stating that’s the key to the funnel cake. “That’s what makes it such an amazing replacement for bread, in the Clubbel sandwich.”
We couldn’t agree more!
In the meantime, we’ll be satiating our ‘Clubbel’ cravings by tossing homemade funnel cakes in a bowl with bacon, turkey, cheese, lettuce and tomato, dousing the whole thing with mustard and mayo and devouring it on the couch while we catch up on Carnival Eats.
Tune into an all new season of Carnival Eats starting Saturday, April 9 at 8 E/P.
