All things 'Top Chef'

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 3:16 PM

So finally we learn the finalists - and to think they got there with decent gumbo and some shrimp and grits. How utterly uninspired. By far the most exciting thing about last night's episode was Fabio's dangerous fashion choices. I like a man who can rock a pink scarf. But the mohawk? I'm not sold.

SPOILER ALERT: Although it would have been entirely stupid, I was kind of hoping for Stephan to go home. Just because it would have been a surprise. As it stands now, the only thing that will save the season is if Carla wins. I think most of us thought she was just there for the freaky tallness factor, so it's nice to see her come from behind with all her weirdness.

Speaking of Top Chefs, today is Richard Blais' birthday. Happy birthday chef! In honor of his big day, I'm happy to announce that beginning next week, Blais will be writing a column for our food section. It's about time we had a voice from the restaurant world in our pages, and I'm incredibly excited about the possibilities. Look for it online on Monday and in next week's paper.
