"And therefore we thought it wasn't creative enough and didn't represent a complete spectrum of what a meal is supposed to be. Therefore we had to 'chop' you."
Damn, his meal was almost primal too!
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
If you get Create-TV, which is a PBS channel, then you can watch Primal Grill.
It's not really primal like we use the word, but he basically cooks meat outdoors using traditional methods from all over the world, going pretty far back in time. So the reality is that it comes out our version of primal 90% of the time.
My favorite was when he cooked lamb on a shovel over an open fire pit dug into the ground.

Who is "he"? Was this on the latest episode or something?
A meal does not have to contain a starch to be a complete meal. However, in American restaurants, typical meals are usually not considered "complete" on menus without a starch - typically a side of pasta or two vegetables, one almost always being a baked potato, mashed potatoes or french fries. It's a cooking show, so in the context of a restaurant kitchen, it makes sense. Most Americans do not consider a meal complete without a starch, and most restaurants cater to "most" Americans.
