Top Chef A-Listers

Hi, again! Just wanted to tell you that I am a #TopChef A-Lister!

I am also a Bravo TV  junkie.

I love Andy Cohen; he is my best friend. He may not know that, but that’s okay. Padma, Tom, and Gail are also my imaginary friends. I mean, best friends!

Last night I glued myself to Bravo, just as I do every night to watch either a Real Housewife fight, a decorator’s disaster, or a Quickfire Challenge.

My little 6-month old baby in one hand, remote control in the other – told ya life is good!

Top Chef was really entertaining last night. I especially enjoyed the Quickfire Challenge. The Chefs were given an ingredient wrapped in foil (Reynolds Wrap marketing :-D) and they didn’t know what was in the foil until after they opened it.

Then, the elimination challenge involved contestants fighting over baskets of berries. There was a variety of berries, and I would have fought to get my hands on some gooseberries! Love those things!

In between all that there was the usual fighting, bickering, cursing… do all chefs curse as much?! The sound, Bleep Bleep Bleeeeeeep, happened one too many times last night.

Kristen, sweet Kristen, won both challenges, and I think that she truly deserved it because both dishes were incredibly creative. A Sponge Cake baked in aluminum foil and a Matcha Goat Milk Custard with olive oil-macerated Tayberries. That Matcha Goat Milk Custard sounds ah.mazing. Here’s the recipe… yummo!

Finally, Danyele packed her knives and went bye-bye-bye <—-gotta sing it like N Sync because that’s what I did when they told her to pack her knives and go. On a side note, I should start doing videos for my blog so you can see the weirdo that I can be. 😀

    I’m so happy you are reviewing this too!! I saw the email, but I’m not a tv person (well… except for Dance Moms…!) but I’m really enjoying reading these recaps.
    I know what you mean about the BFF’s!! Did you know that Jill Colona is my BFF?? Nope… she doesn’t know it either. I’ve told her, but I’m not sure she really knows!! One day I’m going to go to Paris and surprise her!
    I’m looking forward to the next recaps!
