Get Your Top Chef Fix

If you're missing Top Chef — no new episode last night — head over to Chow and listen to what the losers have to say. Jane Goldman, the editor-in-chief of the online foodie site, has exclusive interviews with each of the losing contestants. It's pretty fascinating stuff, I've already listened and here are a few highlights:

  • Apparently Tre — and several of the other contestants — was recruited by Bravo to be on Top Chef. They contacted him and asked if he was interested in participating.
  • Sara still feels the roach coach challenge was unfair and that she should not have been forced to cook in her heels. Surprisingly, Goldman agrees with her.
  • Tre believes there aren't enough sexy male chefs in the world and wants to be the first chef known exclusively for his sexiness and food.
  • Joey admits he wasn't paying attention to Hung and did over cook the pasta.

There is lots more where those tidbits came from. The chefs discuss where they are now and who they keep in touch with from the show. Check it out and than come back here and tell me what you think!

Sara lost all credibility with that CHOW interview. She and Casey DIDN'T cook in heels. There are pictures on numerous blogs--they were given aprons and shoes and their own knives. Not only that, buts this "I don't let my cooks see me..." and demoralizing stuff is ridiculous. Look at Casey's trashy my space page...and Sara showed up the first day in a top cut down to her navel. Sara M had the right attitude. She impressed me that night for the first time. Then I became a true fan when she made Howie re-do the lamb chops.

I agree with the sexy chef thing, but Tre always reminded me of a turtle...sorry, but its true. I lost a lot of respect for Sara when she blamed the challenge on being uncomfortable in her party clothes. Please! Definitely interesting that Bravo recruited the cheftestants this season. Hmm...

Who wouldn't want to be known for their sexiness and their food? :)
