Jonathan Soroff: Does TV like The Martha Stewart Show misrepresent cooking? They’ve got 400 assistants. Chris Kimball: Yes, in a way, but I suppose it’s similar to Vogue, because the clothes look great on a 19-year-old model who ways 105 pounds. You put that same dress on your own fat ass, and it doesn’t look as good. So on the show, we always start with badly done food-and I wish we did it even more-to really make the point that no one is perfect. I’d like to take away that fear of failure by saying, “Everybody makes mistakes.”
