They have 18 different bowls with ingredients and a commercial-grade kitchen set up in advance. Then they spend a long time with lots of steps and manual labor to produce some food. And they call it "simple", "easy" and "quick". Anyone can do it. It's oh-so-basic.
Except it would be very difficult for me to even obtain those ingredients in the first place, and cost a fortune, and there would be lots of waste because only very little of each thing is needed for the specific meal, and it would take forever to set up like they have it on the show. And then I have to stand there and spend lots of time doing it all right before I can eat.
How is that simple/easy/quick? Why do they always claim this? It's absurd. They are a professional with lots of experience and don't have to buy/set up anything. I'm a hungry non-chef/cook with zero energy and money. It is objectively difficult, expensive, time-consuming and cumbersome.
