Drag queen Bianca Del Rio and actress Haneefah Wood at an elaborately set dinner table.

Hulu’s new competition series Drag Me to Dinner looks like what you’d get if you crossed RuPaul’s Drag Race with Top Chef. Each episode, two pairs of drag queens face off to create the perfect dinner party for the show’s superstar judges: Neil Patrick Harris, Bianca Del Rio, and Haneefah Wood. There will be cooking, there will be decorating, and there will be glorious, fabulous chaos.

Besides the show’s judges, Drag Me to Dinner boasts some pretty big names. New York City legend Murray Hill (so good in HBO’s Somebody Somewhere) hosts, while David Burtka produces and helps reveal each episode’s theme. And of course, the list of competitors is a veritable who’s who of drag, including Drag Race icons like Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme, Dragula stars like Biqtch Puddin’ and Merrie Cherry, and legendary drag scene staples like Sherry Vine and the late Heklina.

My biggest question heading into Drag Me to Dinner: How many punny dishes will we be served over the course of the show’s 10 episodes? Will queens like Peaches Christ, Kim Chi, and Jasmine Rice LaBeija cook meals based on their food-centric drag names? Will we see Alaska laboring over a baked Alaska or Meatball whipping up some spaghetti and meatballs? All we’re missing is Victoria “Porkchop” Parker, and we’d have a full spread.

All episodes of Drag Me to Dinner are streaming May 31 on Hulu.
