For foodies, this weekend’s piece de resistance is the NYT Sunday magazine. The publication’s second food-focused edition of 2013, the “Restaurant Issue,” includes all sorts of delectable goodies like Willy Staley‘s report on a day-in-the-life of Balthazar kitchen employees.
Halfway down the online version of Staley’s item, there’s a video by colleague Samantha Stark titled “Frites Show.” Despite the play on words, there’s nothing freaky going on here. Just a wordless montage of how a spud gets from field to gratuity-not-included.
Stark and her editors did a good job with the choice of music. The chamber orchestra tidings have sort of an old Hitchock-ian feel, lending the video – dare we say it – an almost North by Northeast feel?
