If you aren’t completely obsessed with cooking shows, are you like, okay? Because nothing compares to a front row seat screen full of food. We, the human race, are not worthy of this indulgence of culinary eye candy.

Humans associate meals and treats with memories. Take cake, for example. You probs have cake for special occasions and celebrations, so now whenever you see cake, you’re flooded with all those happy feelings. I’m not saying food = happiness, but sometimes it can come pretty freakin’ close.

So if you’re in the mood for a food-filled show featuring international travel, fierce competition, and in-depth cultural explorations, queue up one of the best cooking shows on Netflix. They’ll satisfy any craving, guaranteed.

If watching chefs from around the world battle it out in a global cook-off tickles your fancy: The Final Table

Jaime E. Love

While high-end sushi restaurants have been embracing bentos during the pandemic and getting more and more into the delivery game, KazuNori has been hesitant. The Sugarfish spinoff has long worried about how its hand rolls would fare in transit. But now, KazuNori thinks it has it figured out and giving its fans what they’ve wanted for years. For the first time, the hit hand roll bar is offering delivery from both its LA and New York locations.

NEW JERSEY – Legislation to reimburse restaurants, bars and caterers that spent money on supplies in preparation for indoor dining’s return was approved by a Senate committee Monday.

The bill, S-2704, sponsored by Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Vin Gopal and Senator Anthony Bucco, would fund the reimbursements by appropriating $30 million to the Economic Development Authority from federal block grants allocated to the state from the CARES Act.

Michael McDermott needed to get out of Boston.

He was a long way from starting one of the hottest restaurants in Roseville.

About a decade ago, he was in his 20s and liked to party. He stayed up all night drinking with friends, blew the rent money and lost his apartment. McDermott had a dog, which made it hard to find cheap housing. So he took the dog and moved into his car, a tiny Dodge Prism. Then he lost the car.

He was on the streets, crashing in friends’ basements or sleeping on park benches. It was time for a change. He knew he always had family to bail him out if he screwed up. He decided to move to California.

“My mom had so much confidence in me, she bought me a backpack and a keychain with a fork, spoon and knife on it,” remembered McDermott. “She was
