Of course, look what fantasy has gotten “Top Chef” viewers: frozen dinners. Time magazine had a pretty good look at them, including the fact that contestants surrender all rights to recipes (shades of so many cook-offs that are not competitions so much as cynical trawls for marketable ideas).

And I’m awaiting the Ferran Adria Fizzies.
