Top Chef Battle of the Brothers

Bryan Voltaggio

Kudos to Bryan!

My pick Bryan Voltaggio is still in the running to become the next Top Chef. He’s the cool and calm cheftestant known for classic flavor profiles and farm fresh ingredients. Bryan won the main challenge last night, proving that he can out cook, out taste, and out plate the remaining cheftestants.

Michael Voltaggio

Good Job Michael!

Michael Voltaggio is also in the running to be the next Top Chef.  He’s the out-of-the-box brother who is hell-bent on beating Bryan. With his Quick-Fire challenge win this week he’s nipping at Bryan’s heels. This brotherly rivalry will make the upcoming finale scrumptiously compelling.

Kevin Gillespie

Yay for Kevin!

Kevin Gillespie is the third cheftestant still in the running to become the next Top Chef. He’s the smart one who wow’s the judges with his simple cooking techniques. He didn’t win anything last night, but let’s not forget all his winning dishes and perfectly prepared plates.

Jennifer Carroll

Bye Bye to Jennifer!

Jennifer Carrol lumbered away from the Judges Table last night to pack up her knives, defeated and teary-eyed. At first, it appeared that she had a fighting chance, but looking back it is easy to see that as talented as she is in the kitchen, the other 3 cheftestants are just a little bit more talented.

A Meal Fit for a Finale

In honor of Jennifer Carroll, I will be preparing one of her winning dishes, “Poached Halibut in a Whiskey, Bourbon and Scotch Sauce”, to eat during the finale. Yes, it is important to prepare and plate the most delicious and well-executed dish to eat while the judges are tasting the cheftestants’ food.

Double the Top Chefs

Top Chef Masters…continues with my pick…Rick Bayless

Chef Rick Bayless

Chef Rick Bayless

Top Chef Masters found 24 top chefs, had them compete for 6 weeks, and those 6 winners are now competing against each other for a large sum of money for their favorite charity. Only 3 chefs remain. My guy is still there, Rick Bayless, known for his authentic Mexican cuisine. One of his competitors called his Mexican food the best in the country.

then Top Chef premieres in Vegas

Tonight, the new season of Top Chef airs. There’s nothing like a new crop of chefs, and I shall be watching it in its natural unTivo’d state. It also means I’ll be eating dinner later than usual, so I can eat it during the food tasting and judging portion of the show. If they get food, so do I.
