Top Chef: Heating Up in the Kitchen

I’m sure, as always, there is a ton of criticism this week about Top Chef, however I really REALLY enjoyed the show.

For a good competition, make it simple. Basically: “Chefs… go crazy, cook what you want, oh by the way… two of you are going home and without knowing who’s food they are eating, your cohorts will be helping judge”

What a great premise…

What we learned was…once again… Ariane is a champion. Fact is… the woman knows how to prepare a great meal. Focus on the main course and do the sides/garnish/etc. right. The Michelin man, who really bothered me on this episode and thrashed everyone during the quickfire, could not have been more impressed.

Jamie, congrats, at least we don’t have to hear you whine. (gotta love the Italian… “This is Top Chef, not Top Scallop”)

Toby Young seems like he will be a fun addition.

I’m not sure why, but I just thought that Eugene deserved another shot. Colicchio made it clear that this is a competition, and the chefs shouldn’t attempt safe dishes. That fish was risky and beautiful…but hey, taste is taste.

Judging by the whiff I got via smell-o-vision, I would love to try Fabio’s dish… man did that look good!

I really think we’re in for a big finish… Go Jersey… The weak is almost weeded out….it should get interesting.

No lie, Italy did beat France in the World Cup
