>mfw reading the comments


To all the morons shouting "pretentious", "scam" and other hateful, ignorant statements, it's obvious that you have no idea what cooking and food is about. Does that mean a New York city hot dog isn't considered good food? No. But this guy is reimagining food and changing the conventional way we think about eat. Sight, taste smell, etc, all come into play when you eat. Some of your best memories are centered around food, and a lot of how good you remember something "tasted", you remember more about the people and experiences around you than even the flavors. Not only does his food taste incredible, he plays, he discovers, he experiments, and does things you lot would never even think of while standing in line for something you're just used to eating, filled with salt and sugar, told is good by someone else, shovel in your mouth, and a million other ways of dulling your dining experience. The reason he's voted best in the world are for some of these reasons. I would gladly pay hundreds for his food because at the end of the day, he is giving you something you will probably experience once in your life and is the reason (even in a pretentious, ego driven word as the culinary one can be) that chefs are called artists. But go on then, keep dribbling about how you are a better, more genuine critic of "real" food while this guy keeps collecting awards, respect, recognition and $$ while you post mean comments on YouTube and feel proud knowing you know how to cook a steak.

>you can only be born into class

You actually think that people are just naturally classy? No, you idiot. They grew up LEARNING it from their parents and/or educators. Has your brain malfunctioned and is unable to store/rewrite information that you can execute for future use? Are you unable to change the mistakes you've made in your life? You're able to join the thread, so I guess it still works.

That's an unfair assumption to those who are actually trying to be better. Yes, it's unavoidable that some people might opt for the easy way and just pretend, but it's better to just assume that they are actually trying, just to maintain the survival of a higher-standard in living.

That way they can be corrected and actually respect your opinions, with a higher chance of them emulating the said opinion.

Plebs are scum, I agree with that too, and believe they are needed to exist to actually define what it means to live better. The objective though, is to not strike a balance between the two, but to limit their numbers so that as a tool, people who are living better can actually explain HOW they're better.

This post reminds me of a old Food Network episode on food presentation and its effects on customers

They opened up two restaurants and sold the same food and drinks but did the presentation different.

One just put food on paper plates and wine in plastic cups with a slice of cake

The other put the same food on nice ceramic plates and fancied up the food then put the same wine in nice wine glasses and presented the same cake differently too

Then they got two groups of people and told them to go to both restaurants and rate the food.

Remember this was the same food and wine just presented differently. The Restaurants also priced their food differently the one with the paper plates and plastic cups sold their meals for $4. 50 and the one with the nice plates and wine glasses sold their meals for $14.50

Both groups said that the food on the plastic plate was tasteless and that the wine was cheap and that the cake was too sweet. Some didn't even finish thier meals and one asked for their money back

They both said they would never eat at the first restaurant again

Then they went to the other restaurant and said the food was superb and to give compliments to the chef they also said the wine was exquisite and they could tell it was a good wine.
The cake was rated top notch and just the right amount of sweet without being overbearing

Both groups said they would definitely eat at this restaurant again

Then they were brought back to the Office where they were briefed at the beginning of the show and brought both owners out, both worked for Food Network.

They then told the groups that the show was really about food presentation and that the food They ate at both restaurants was the same and then asked how they felt about this.

They were all embarrassed and shocked that they couldn't tell the difference and how the presentation fooled them into paying more for the same food when they wouldn't eat it at the other place that sold it for $10 cheaper

So what we've learned is that paper plates and plastic cups diminishes the enjoyment of food. I could have told you that in a much shorter post.

You'll also find that if you blast an air horn in someone's ear while they try to enjoy something, their enjoyment of that thing is typically diminished.

From this we can learn that all enjoyment is in your head. But we already knew that, didn't we. Well, some of us did, anyway. I hope this has been an interesting lesson for you.

Perception is not ab absolute thing. Presentation is definitely part of it, but so is cost. The more people pay for something the higher they value it. This is particularly true of wine. While some wine is objectively terrible and some is amazing, most wine is somewhere in the middle. If you give someone middle grade wine and tell them it's cheap they will dismiss it in their mind before even tasting it. Tell them it's expensive and they will strain to appreciate it.

That's just human nature. Presentation counts because we associate it with price. And justifiably so - a beautifully presented plate takes extra time and effort to prepare - it's not the kind of thing you really see at cheap places, but it's a given at expensive ones.

Just like wine when the food is neither terrible nor amazing people will judge their meals on other cues:price, presentation, service, decor and their perception of who the other patrons are. Great example would be my neighborhood Italian joint. An excellent bowl of fresh pasta in a nearly perfect sauce costs $12. But it's a cramped little shabby-chic restaurant patronized by locals. At a Cirpiani joint people pay nearly two and a half times that amount for a plate of pasta that's good, but not even as good as my local place. But at the Cipriani joint the dining room is beautiful, the service excellent and the customers mostly very wealthy. Even though their food is a step down from my local the perception most people would have is that the Cipriani joint is the much better restaurant. And playing off that aspect of human nature is what keeps them in business.

So is this food so expensive just because the ingredients are hand harvested by the kitchen staff instead of bought from a supplier? I've seen some very impressive dishes at higher class establishments but the dishes that are posted in these threads always seem to be style over substance. The shitposters seem to switch between saying food is isn't about the taste but the presentation, and implying that anyone who doesn't like it is a lower class 400lb McDonald's eater from Kentucky.

You know how I can tell this is just sour grapes? Because if you could afford Cipriani you'd at least know it's spelled like it sounds. But you've never heard it spoken aloud. You just saw someone post an opinion about it on the internet and got buttmad.

Nobody goes to Cipriani for the food. They go there to avoid poor people stink. Much like how people of your social class go to Chipotle to avoid the homeless people at MacDonalds, and the homeless people at MacDonalds go there to avoid the even scarier homeless people cooking stray cats under the bridge.

There are very good restaurants that are very expensive and well done while still keeping from straying into dishes like the OP. The issue is there are a lot of places the rich go only because they are rich and can afford it. Having taste and being rich are not the same thing.

When I had my three stars I never had a dress code. Who am I to dictate how people should dress? And how many think they’ve got to say the food is delicious because of where they’re sitting? If they are honest, they’d prefer to have a corned beef sandwich with some Branston’s or get a take-away curry.

That's because you are a flyover, as proven by the fact that you use terms like "nu-male" and have confused ideas about authenticity. Most Japanese men can't do beards. If they could, I can assure you they would. As for the tattoos there are cultural reasons why most Japanese bartenders are not sporting them as they do here in the West.

Those Japanese bars are literally the antithesis of authenticity. Japs are often severely autistic and study foreign ways so diligently that they become better at those foreign things than the inventors of said foreign things. See: Japanese single malt whisky, or the fact that Japanese tailors have created this bizarrely perfect fantasy version of American "trad" style that is far better than anything Americans ever did.

If being in Japan is an important part of the experience for you, that's a legitimate desire, but don't fool yourself into thinking that it's not an imitation.

The haters have obviously not eaten at a high end restaurant before. Food is art. That's why menus are done is such a way to be appealing to the eye. Chances are, if the dish looks beautiful then it probably will taste just as beautiful. An ugly and ill prepared dish is unappetizing and then it becomes difficult to get past that to attempt to eat it. It has nothing to do with pretentiousness. I love a well prepared burger from In N Out Burger as well as high end food sculptures.Michelin stars are for chefs what oscars are for actors, or a high zagat rating for a fast food joint. At restaurants such as Alinea, you aren't just paying for some guy in a jumpsuit cooking you a meal...you are paying to enjoy a culinary experience from a highly trained and qualified chef who has spent years studying and honing his craft.You wouldn't use the cheapest backyard mechanic to work on your nicest vehicle, you'd take it to a reputable and trustworthy mechanic and if the job requires it, a mechanic that specializes in the car you have. You want quality work. That reputable mechanic spent years honing his craft to build a reputation. Same is true with restaurants like this. The chef, if he cares about his craft, desires a good reputation. Culinary art, if done well, is a wonderful experience. Can I afford this kind of lifestyle? No, but I have eaten at a few high-end restaurants and it is absolutely a fantastic and fun experience.One last note, Grant is relatively young and likes playful dishes. I attribute this dessert to childhood when playing in the mud and making mud pies and such. It's cool. Those that scoff, no offense, just simply don't get it or think it's frivolous. That's fine, everyone has an opinion. I just fail to see how one can have a good, solid opinion about something they haven't experienced before. Reminds me of the commercial about the guy that hasn't tasted Almond milk before but has the opinion that he doesn't like it. Well, duh.

Food has definitely been stolen from us for a very long while. What I mean by that is that we treated it as fuel and our only appreciation of it equated gluttony.

We seem to have claimed it back over the last couple of decades. What saddens me is that our newfound appreciation of food hasn't translated into an admiration for qualitative ingredients, their simplicity and how and why they compliment one another, but a culture embedded in an autistic fetishization of food coupled with an obsession over what every single facet of this culture signifies. It's transparent in Instagram posts, TV programmes and day to day talks.

We have gone from abandoning food, to fetishizing it like autistic materialists. Pretty disgusting.

There might not be any dress codes but 11 course tasting menus are ubiquitous in 3 star establishments. They're tailored to be once in a lifetime edible "experiences" which have little to do with food people actually eat done at a level that they can't do with ingredients they can't source. That to me is the essence of fine dining. Not foams and gels and microgreens and square inch of meats.

I think the industry got to where it is because ingredients became cheaper to import and techniques easier to learn. Which meant that too many people could serve the best quality food. Which meant a gap opened up at the top end which was filled by this self appeasing crap.

While I think pretentious food is memeworthy I dont think its bad or wrong. Its part of the experience of some fine dining places.

Have an uncle who has spent all of his life since I've been born as a chef in the city. One time we had a family get-together dinner at the place he was working at at the time, and thus got the 'off the menu vip course'. All of this pretentious shit is laughable in comparison to it. There's a difference between plating food for eating and plating food for tasting, but these pricks doing what's been posted here apparently get off on doing the latter and calling it the former.

Man you guys really are plebs aren't you, lik proper lower class. And I don't mean just in a sense of wealth, but in a sense of culture. You lot are in the lower cultural class. This has very little to do with money. Many of the people who go to these restaurants will save up for a month or two - guess what, spending a few hundred on a great dining experience can be wonderful and you don't need to be rich at all. And yes, these meals are filling. The worst meme of them all is that you won't be full. After 12 dishes you'll be so full that people go to these restaurants after not eating all day so that they can fit it all in. Though I would expect you fatasses wouldn't be satiated. It's all about savouring a fun and novel experience while also taking in someone else's craft. You guys are pathetic.

Youre not wrong that the presentation in some of these foods is fun to look at, but the taste itself is relative.

Ive dined at restaurants where I paid 1k Euro and this level of "show" is unnecessary and screams nouveau riche wannabe cuisine.
