Triptych: This May Be... The BEST Post I've Made For You So Far

"Super Sexy Burger Time" by Paul Robertson

"Square Meal Makers" by Jamie Roberts

"Cooking Nightmares" (t-shirt) by Snellby

Bit of a change of pace here, but the wife-to-be has gotten me watching all sorts of cooking competition shows - mainly Masterchef, Iron Chef and Top Chef. Of these three, Masterchef is by far the most infuriating: I don't know how much say Gordon Ramsay has in how Masterchef is edited (I'm assuming a lot) but there's something about it that drives me insane and makes me yell at my TV. There's absolutely no subtlety to it. And yet, I keep watching it. To be fair, I'm not going out of my way to watch Masterchef - Heather kind of forces these shows on me - but there's something cartoonishly entertaining about Gordon Ramsay. And so, I dedicate this Triptych to Chef Ramsay*, the angriest, most over-the-top chef the world has ever known.

* To be fair to Gordon Ramsay, the way he handled the owners of Amy's Baking Company on Kitchen Nightmares - and more to the point, the genuine, human sympathy he displayed towards their poor, abused employees - earned a ton of respect from me. If you haven't watched the episode, try and track it down. It's one of the greatest television moments of the year.
