Dotchi isn't just about food

No. It's also about specialists. Perfectionist specialists. I started watching Dotchi quite late -- only within the past year or two. But I've been recording the show on my DVR lately and I'm fully addicted. The whole banter and competition between celebrities and foods are OK.

What I really like is the background footage the show gives us about specific ingredients. The whole notion of perfection is interesting. Sometimes it goes too far, of course, but on Dotchi, it's really cool seeing where the best sesame seeds for paste comes from. Sesame paste! Never heard of it but as a fan of sesame seeds and sesame oil, I'm intrigued.

Maybe my vacation should be a food tour.
