Top Chef Masters: Episode 4

After a week hiatus, Top Chef Masters was back last night with Douglas Rodriguez, John Besh, Anita Lo, and Mark Peel competing for their respective charities. Eggs, magic, Tom Colicchio, and Doogie Howser played supporting roles. Did you watch? Want to discuss the episode? Keep reading.

  1. James Beard Award, Food & Wine Best New Chef, Michelin star: what do you consider to be the highest honor a chef can receive?
  2. Wasn't it so nice to see Gail Simmons?!
  3. Isn't it refreshing to watch the chefs help one another?
  4. Is the scoring system fair? It seems like the chef who loses the quickfire challenge has no chance to win.
  5. The magic guy: creepy or cool?
  6. Was Mark Peel flirting with Anita Lo at the grocery store?
  7. First Gail, then Tom, did you hope Padma would make a cameo, too? I did!
  8. Did the chefs portray their words — mystery, surprise, illusion, spectacle — accurately?
  9. Has Bravo's ad placements worn off on you? I kind of wish I had a bunch of those Glad tupperwares...
  10. Didn't Anita look miserable when she won?

Rick Bayless didn't win the quickfire and he still won at the end. I don't think Anita looked miserable...expressionless, sure, but not miserable

I had one of the best meals of my life at Campanile in LA, so I wanted Peel to win too!

I was rooting for Mark Peel, I was disappointed when he didn't win.

1. i think that a michelin star is probably the best 2. i was soo happy that she was back. made it feel more like TOP CHEF 3. well at least you know that once folks grow up they aren't necessarily so cut throat 4. i never really got into the whole scoring thing for this show. it just doesn't feel right to me. 5. a bit of both? 6. seemed like it just a little to me 7. i didn't hear that one but i think that it would be good - although tom didn't have too much of a presence. i wish that it were more. 8. i think that they all did a good job. it's just a guide - not meant to be used whole heartedly i don't think. 9. i actually don't even pay attention to that stuff anymore. i guess it's because i work in advertising too so it's made me kind of immune. 10. well i think that she likes to cook but doesn't like the pressure that's put on her in these challenges. i'm glad that she did though!
