It's a pretty Top Chef heavy week and all, what with season 12 premiering October 15. But now crewmembers are exposing a pretty nasty incident between Teamsters and the crew of Top Chef that happened this last June, and are blaming both Bravo and the production company, Magical Elves, for putting the team in a dangerous situation.
El Jefe and the gang is back: now that Jon Favreau and Open Road Films have announced a re-release of the movie Chef at the end of the month, it's safe to assume that the move is all about nabbing those awards -- you know, Oscars and such. (The Hollywood Reporter shares that when Chef hits theaters again August 29, film guild members will be able to see it for free, so more incentive to see it and vote for it.) But does Chef have what it takes to go all the way? Is Favreau et al. hungry enough to get after it? Our analysis ahead:
Chefs are remembering the Delaware chef Matt Haley, who died earlier this week while on a humanitarian trip in Leh, India. The chef was in a motorcycle accident, and died en route to a hospital in New Delhi. In 2014, he won the James Beard Humanitarian of the Year award.
Have you not seen the spoof of HBO’sGirls, starring Laraine Newman as Hannah Horvath and Wendie Malick as Marnie Michaels 36 years into the future? Well you should, because it’s pretty fucking spot-on, plus it’s the cultural zeitgeist, plus it’s five days old, so all your friends have seen it already, and you’re probably definitely missing out on some references.
What does this have to do with us? Well besides being deeply concerned with your cultural educations, Girls Season 38 has given us a powerful glimpse into how hipsters of the future will eat. Obviously, Hannah’s stuffing her face for the entire time she isn’t getting boned (by Martin goddamn Starr), and this provides useful information on what the foodscape of Greenpoint circa 2049 will look like. Below, a helpful slideshow of all the foods consumed on Girls Season 38.
