Top Dog Chef
I’m not sure this Saturday Night Live sketch is worth the 30-second ad you’re required to watch first, but it has its moments.
All in all, though, it makes me long for the good old days, both when it comes to SNL and when it comes to cooking shows.
Once they were soothing things to watch — one person preparing a dish — so simple, so relaxing, so sleep-inducing. Now they’re mostly cut-throat competitions in which multiple chefs feverishly vie to make the most judge-pleasing concoction. Those who fail get axed, or chopped, or otherwise sent home.
And that may be the unkindest cut of all.
