When I think of Jimmy Kimmel the word "swell" comes to mind. As in, "That Jimmy Kimmel sure seems like a swell guy!" And this video proves it. See what happens is, Jimmy and the world-renowned chef and international sex symbol Mario Batali decide to find a stranger on the street and then go to their house and cook a meal with whatever is in that person's fridge. This does indeed happen, and a lovely afternoon then unfolds before your very eyes.
I know cooking shows are so en vogue right now, but still, in spite of it all, I can't get enough of watching great chefs - great artists, really - put together dazzling dishes on camera. There's a reason these shows are popular. If I had the tenacity and the courage - if I had the stones! - I might try and become a cook, or open my own restaurant. But I know how much hard work is involved, and I don't think I truly have the passion to get down and dirty, as it were. Still, it would be fun. Maybe one day after I make my billions in crude oil futures I'll open a nice little restaurant in the south of France with my loving Spanish wife, who I met while paragliding in the foothills of the Himalayas, high on peyote and white wine.
So dig into the video and then maybe cook something for someone - maybe someone you love! Live, love, and eat, baby! Live, love, and eat.
