In praise of … Top Chef, the Michelin-starred reality TV show

1 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Heading into its 14th season the reality show for real foodies doesn’t need to deal in wine throwing and hissy fits, it’s far too good for deep-fried cliches

In Patrick Süskind’s 1985 novel, Perfume, an 18th-century French orphan is born with an extraordinary sense of smell and Süskind describes every scent and odor experienced by our protagonist. “Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will,” says the writer. “The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.”

In the same way Perfume takes the reader on a journey of fragrances without actually smelling anything, Top Chef does the same with food. From the kitchen to the final dish, we experience every bite with the chef and the judges. »

- Luis Miguel Echegaray
