Human beings have always had this strange relationship with food and the insanity, as in many cases, is usually found at the extremes. Haute cuisine and fast food are the perfect psychiatric case study.
General Sir John Glubb once quipped in his book The Fate of Empires during the final age, the Age of Decadence, celebrity chefs herald the end of the Empire. The Romans, the Ottomans, and the Spanish all made celebrities of their chefs.
In the modern age, and in a strange twist to this Age of Decadence, food has evolved from the concrete macro nutritional facts into a world where the story of the ingredients, the providence and origin now determine its halo of health. Macro-nutrients be damned.
Grab your Holy Chicken crispy grilled Superclucker loaded with some health halos, a comfy seat with a Thorzine drip, and you’re listening device.
In this episode, let’s take a satirical walk through the strange relationship humans have with food and the world of haute cuisine inspired by the documentary films Supersize Me 2 and Michelin: The Madness of Perfection. Morgan Spurlock, William Sitwell, Marcus Waring… I did mention it’s satire, right?
