|Pretentious Chefs, Falling Dietary Standards are Killing Grilling Holiness
This is not the grilling art we wanted. This is not the tandoori standards that our forefathers once ensured had to be maintained with the seriousness of a heart attack. The grilled stuff served today, particularly at take-away points of sale, has literally zero or near-zero grilly flavor. The meats are precooked, prepackaged, instantly fried and are never given the privilege of being slow roasted. The love for hardwood kilns to handle meats has been lost to instant food delivery systems that run low on patience. Meats are cooked with a timer which is run by deadline-anxious staff. The insides are raw and chewy like a chewing-gum. Slow-roasting is a lost species for good. Tandoori buffets serve the most idiotically finished grilled items. I mean at least don't fry-burn the surface which makes the entire sham so obvious!!
