Me Gusta Top Chef!

Top Chef Cleaver

We’re already about five weeks into the latest season of Bravo’s awesome reality cooking competition, Top Chef – one of my very favorite TV shows. This season, which is set in Las Vegas, is very, very good indeed! But I’ve yet to blog about Top Chef Las Vegas because there are so many other sites (Best Week Ever, Television Without Pity, Gawker) that recap this show weekly with so much more snark and mean-spirited hilarity than I could ever even hope to muster. And you know me: if I can’t be the best at something I don’t even try to get in the game. But even though I bear a serious grudge against Gawker for mysteriously banning me from commenting on their typo-ridden posts, their live-blog recap of last night’s Top Chef episode is just too hilarious not to share the link. Be sure to read all of the reader comments at the end of the post for their added value.

Hell Comes To Your House

How many of you guys watched last night’s much-anticipated second part of the Hell’s Kitchen finale? Man, I love that show! I admit I was totally pleased with finalist Christina taking top honors over Petrozza. Both were decent chefs, but Petrozza was kind of a spazz. He would never be able to survive as head chef in Gordon Ramsey’s new LA restaurant for more than ten minutes if the wasn’t being filmed for a reality TV show. Anyway, while all of us Gordon Ramsey junkies are waiting for the new season of Kitchen Nightmares to start, why not relive the excitement, stress and incessant screaming of the “rigorous culinary bootcamp” that is Hell’s Kitchen with the Hell’s Kitchen Home Game?
