    Nothing beats wholesome, simple homemade food made by someone's granny or mom. This expensive, exclusive, borderline estatuesque food seems so untouchable, it ceases to be appealing, except for the status it confers to the diner.

    You want to see how a real scallop man opens and cleans in less than 10,,,seconds that is. He also gets the yellow sac with the scallop,,without removing the scallop or anything from the shell. other than the bad bits. Skip to 2:25 here>>> Gordon gets shut down. It is truly amazing.

    This is just so ridiculously absurd. People are starving..literally starving all over the world and this absurdity is what people spend their wealth on. I genuinely love cooking channels..but I just can't with this degree of pretentiousness

    If anyone has seen the movie Idiocracy, where they don't know what to do with all the trash, the restaurant industry is to be to blamed the most. All that packaging for the shrimp, etc, is totally unnecessary. All that paper to dry off meat, new plastic spoons to taste EACH caviar container, etc. And they do this every day? I can see why the rich and elite was us common folk to conserve so they can splurge. Same with fossil fuel. 140 private planes used for the Oscars but yet they preach to us about Global Warming because of fossil fuels. smh

    With expensive, highest quality ingredients, how could you possibly go wrong? Well, I tell you how you could go wrong: minuscule portion sizes. Why does everything in these super expensive, high-end restaurants have to be about minuscule portions?! They tease you, and burn a hole in your stomach and pocketbook, with quality, but almost no quantity. This is how anorexic supermodels eat, not normal people with reasonably healthy appetites.

    Restaurants in this grand style are dying out. There is only one left in Chicago, Les Nomades. Tru, Spiaggia, and the Everest Room managed to hang on but have now closed. This anti-fine dining trend had started before Covid. Even people with money to burn don’t like the formality anymore. A shame.

    So revisiting this video I love how Jean Georges still has to le jeur de main his 2nd in command by saying “yeah he’s Canadian but they are good with fish,” lol. Speaking of, Mark is like the nicest executive chef ever, probably for reasons already mentioned.

    it's insane that they taste every single one of the cans of caviar. is there really that much variation between cans or is it really that inconsistent?

    • Freedrick

      Its to make sure that they don't serve a bad batch by accident, because the price is so high they need to be absolutely sure that each serving will be good

  • EggyRepublic

    1:01 Nobody's gonna mention how Mark Lapico looks exactly like Linguini from Ratatouille?
