Master Chef: theater of the culinary absurd, or a good watch?
Shall we add this new competition show to the growing list of the culinary absurd, or is it simply a good watch. First of all, the designation Master Chef is used inappropriatly here. I doubt that any of the contestants would ever achieve Master Chef status. It goes on from there, from the warehouse setting with trucks unloading food ingredients to the hyper-tastings and frowns from the judges.
I don't know, maybe I should lighten up and play with my food too...
