Last year in The New York Times gave the definition to the world’s obsession with food, calling it a “food shock”. Indeed, edible crazy our civilization: recipe books become best sellers, cooks tour not less musicians, food becomes the main character talk shows and movies.
Check the new restaurant is now perhaps more important than ever for all to dash off a review of the most awaited film of the year or the latest collection of RAF Simons. And if Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay still less occupy women’s minds than Robert Pattinson, the leading cooking shows Nigel Lawson and Claire Robinson certainly can compare in popularity with Scarlett Johansson or Sasha grey (someone like that).
