Let's Talk Top Chef

Let's Talk Top Chef

Last night I came home from a nice little gift swap and got all excited about curling up and watching the latest installment of Top Chef. I turned on the TV and WHAT?? Another repeat! So, since I can't give you a recap of a new Top Chef episode, I figured I'd take a few minutes to give you my thoughts on the season so far. To read my opinions on this season's personalities and yummy looking recipes,

First of all, let me start by saying, the biggest frustration in watching Top Chef is not knowing what all these gorgeous looking meals taste like. When the judges say my favorite chef's dishes are too salty/inedible, I get a little upset and wish I could make my own opinion. Also, TC could really use their own Tim Gunn, don'tcha think? And what do you think of Padma, better host than last year?

Next let's chat about the contestants. I was sad to see Josie go so soon, I thought she'd make it much further and am ridiculously surprised to see that Michael is still there. Marcel is definitely made out to be the weird "villain" and Betty his antagonist (I must admit, I liked her at first, but now wish she would pack her knives and go). And what was with Mia calling it quits? How can someone get that far and just give up? It makes me really wonder about the editing...

Right now my vote for the top three are Ilia (who I am starting to really like), Sam and Cliff (although I think Marcel will end up there instead). And speaking of Sam, I gotta know, do all the ladies out there think he's hot? Or is he just hot because he's the "hot one" this season?

And finally, here are some of my favorite (looking) recipes this year:

i think Elan is super duper hot! Does anyone know if he's gay or not? That woman totally picked him as the winner (from the dinner party w/ Jennifer Coolidge episode) because she had the hots for him and wanted to take him on that trip! Probably have him ride on her lap! I've missed the past couple episodes-- we moved to a new place and don't have cable!
