Rafi Grosglik and David Kyle’s “The Recipes of Genius on Chef’s Table” offers insights into the creative process of dish development by those conceived as culinary genius—chefs who implicitly depart from any prior recipe or even prevailing techniques. They describe four primaries “recipes” (cultural scripts) of contemporary creative and talented chefs. Using content analysis of the Netflix series Chef’s Table, they argue that culinary genius narratives reinforce winner-take-all ideologies of a global meritocracy through a highly individualistic framing of the creative process and represent the ideal of the privileged individual genius.
