We’ve heard of Chef’s Table, a documentary cooking show featuring extremely dramatic video and camera work around Michelin star dishes. And while it may be a visually-appealing show, is it honestly that realistic for us?
Let’s face it, we’re probably not actually going to try a Michelin star dish any time soon–never mind cook one. Which is why the Foodbeast parody video, “Jeff’s Table,” where someone makes a peanut butter and jam sandwich, is so brilliant. Now that’s something we, and probably everyone else in the world, can relate to.
But this doesn’t just capture a PB&J sandwich being made… it’s filmed skillfully, which is why we’re so amused by it.
“Why should the guy cooking Top Ramen with bacon bits and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in his dorm room be looked at any differently than the Michelin-starred chef making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich before bed?” wrote Evan Lancaster from Foodbeast.
The combination of dramatic classical music and slow motion video of the sandwich being made is almost hypnotic–it’s surprising that a PB&J sandwich can entertain us so much.
“We also love microwave burritos and PB&J sandwiches, so we set out to give them the same love as all those Michelin star dishes,” said the director of the video, David Ma.
