I caught an episode of Hubert Keller’s PBS Series, Secrets of a Chef. While I was watching, I couldn’t help but notice that Chef Keller referred to his food as “little” and “cute” quite often. The little shrimps are cute. The shrimps wrapped in zuchinni look cute. The little martini glasses are cute. It’s a far cry from the stern and imposing figure he cut on Top Chef Season 1 when he kicked that obnoxious contestant out of his kitchen. I find this new turn kind of endearing really.
