I don’t have a whole lot of commentary to offer on last nights season premiere of Top Chef other than to note that it might actually be possible that Top Chef host, cooking beauty and lover of pot smoking, Padma Lakshmi is getting hotter each season.
Of course some stuff actually happend on the show. Like this dude, Patrick, who is still in culinary school, and this lady Lauren, who was recently in culinary school WITH Patrick, were both eliminated. Now I know this isn’t shocking since they were the two least experienced chefs, so it would make sense that they were eliminated early. However, this does beg the question, what culinary school did these two go to? Possibly not the best PR for that school.
Also, Grub Street has a “Where are they Now” post on previous competitors and Capital Spice chatted with Carla Hall, the chef and caterer from Washington, DC who, during the premiere episode, said that when it comes to designing meals, she likes to be “led by my spirit guide.”
