Tim Love cooks rainbow trout with Savannah Guthrie on 'Today'Chef Tim Love from 'Top Chef Masters' showed up Thursday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) to put his urban western touch on rainbow trout, and Savannah Guthrie got a tad sentimental about it. Love had prepared some Chorizo, garlic, chili, and sweet potatoes with which to stuff the little guy, and had gutted him beforehand.

As Love began to put the filling in the fish and sew it up, Guthrie looked down and said, "He's looking at us." Love joked that he had been talking to the fish earlier, and it had noticed Guthrie didn't like him looking at her. But where Love saw a tasty meal, Guthrie saw only sadness. "I feel like he might have some hopes and dreams and they've come to a terrible end," she said.

After the trout was cooked (and his eye put back in its socket), she didn't seem to have a problem shoveling it in. But if you pause the video there, just at the end, you can see the tears just starting in her eyes.
