I enjoyed the show but was quite turned off by the final episodes evolving around the Swedish chef. The trivial smartness and tricks he took so much delight in, seems to be pleasing himself more than anything, but they are just some stratagem and ruse upon himself. It was not serious or genuine cooking - it was mimicry of the environmental surroundings, clumsy, uncultured, sometimes brutal - especially the scenes on Faroe Islands. The way he cooked a duck will make any Asian chef laugh. I quite the show upon this chef. The show also overlooked Indian, Middle Eastern, and Asian chefs, perhaps due to the production difficulties. Many of the casting duplicated "Chef's Table." I wish to see more of heartfelt and genuine cooking instead of trivial smartness in future.
