Judging by the props, it looks like some kind of cooking show. Which brings to mind "Iron Chef", of course.A while back I came across a Very Serious Academic Paper which "analyzes the processes by which U.S. media corporations recontextualize non-Western media texts and the consequences of such translation strategies" by "address[ing] the cultural tourism and possible condescension implicit in Iron Chef's U.S. popularity."TITLE: What's So Funny about IRON CHEF? SOURCE: Journal of Popular Film and Television 31 no4 176-84 Wint 2004 I doubt that this fellow has been the subject of quite such intense scrutiny.
Possible condescension? Leave it to an academic to prove the obvious.In Nagoya I ate at one of Iron Chef Chen Kenichi's franchise restaurants. Pretty good, if expensive.
