Got some free time this weekend? Take a 57-second cooking class, courtesy of Swedish electronic duo The Knife.

The masked tricksters officially called in quits after 2013’s Shaking the Habitual, but recent activity on their Facebook page has left fans puzzling over the band’s status. Among the goodies are two short videos: one, a 26-second clip, features a large kitchen knife slicing through a cherry-shaped gummy, while the longer video is already giving The Food Network a run for its money.

“Mother of Knives Cooking Class” clocks in at just under a minute and teaches all the fundamentals of cooking—if you’re a ghoulish doll:

    1. Everyone likes cucumber pie, so here’s the recipe
    2. Definitely remove that hairy thing from your mixing bowl (or add it, it’s really up to you)
    3. The Knife looked damn cool in their crow masks, once upon a time.
Both videos were directed by Martin Falck, with styling by Christopher Insulander and design by Emelie Janrell.

No word on a reunion as of yet, but look out for the duo’s Shaking the Habitual: Live at Terminal 5 concert film, out Sept. 1 via Rabid.
