From the author: "A grouchy chef of the old guard meets the young man who has invented a machine that makes food out of thin air. What a JERK."
From http://femmealunettes.dreamwidth.org/1981825.html: "a really grumpy chef who's pissed off that brand-new food replicator technology is going to put him out of business. The guy who created the technology never intended for it to replace chefs, though, let alone the one chef who inspired him to start thinking about food seriously in the first place."
From pinboard.in: "The one with the young dude who invents food replicators and the grumpy chef who hates him"
- delicious.com: "Wonderful sci-fi story about a chef and a food scientist. The chef is an asshole and the scientist is such a fanboy! I loved the interaction between them :D"
