'Chef's Table' Parody Will Make You See Everyday Food In A Whole New Way
Everyone knows Foodbeast is all about the food, not the food reviews.
Getting up close and personal with our food is a prerequisite before consumption. Food and us? That relationship is Facebook official.
And if you're not at that personal level yet with your meals, then hurry up and put a ring on that entree.
With that said, it's worth noting that when food is judged or critiqued on some over-the-top, "What culinary school did you go to?" scale, we lose interest quickly. Chances are, the average person does, too.
Food is important, and it shouldn't matter what you're cooking. Any person can have the same level of appreciation and excitement for every type of food.
Why should the guy cooking Top Ramen with bacon bits and Flamin' Hot Cheetos in his dorm room be looked at any differently than the Michelin-starred chef making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich before bed?
Pull up a seat at "Jeff's Table," where it doesn't matter what we're cooking, as long as you're making what you love to eat. It doesn't even matter if you use a microwave. In fact, it's encouraged.
"Jeff's Table" is a new documentary series that looks at food from the eyes of an average person. Yet, it's seasoned liberally with satirical perspective on taking a popular concept from "Chef's Table," making it Foodbeast-approved.
David Ma, Foodbeast's director for this project, said,
We love everything about 'Chef's Table,' from the slo-motion shots to the beautiful close-ups and story behind the dishes. We also love microwave burritos and PB&J sandwiches, so we set out to give them the same love as all those Michelin-star dishes.
The first episode of "Jeff's Table" features an in-depth look at the gorgeous simplicity of making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on basic-ass white bread. It looks amazing.
"Jeff's Table" also explores the beauty that comes from the Eggo. It's not hard to see these frozen waffles are a golden-brown discus from the gods sent to satiate us hungry, lazy mortals.
If that delicious display of breakfast food porn made you thirsty for more, don't worry. "Jeff's Table" also captures the molecular gastronomy of the luxurious liquid we call chocolate milk. Seriously, who knew normal food could look so damn magnificent?
