Food TV

spike.jpgIn a Q&A with the New Potato, cheftestapant Spike Mendelsohn talks about the the food TV industry and ponders the word "chef": "The word 'chef' is a little bit abused these days... All these Food Network stars are chefs, but they have no restaurants. So, are they chefs? Are they TV chefs? It's just so difficult to put a label on it." On the sad shitshow that was Life After Top Chef: "I think the response wasn't really that great... It was like they were running four shows at once and it almost made you dizzy." [TNP]
