Me with "Top Chef's" Radhika & Antonia, & Colin

I had an amazing opportunity this past weekend to work with two celebrity chefs as part of Top Chef: The Tour: Antonia and Radhika, both former contestants of the Bravo show.

Let me set this up for you in Top Chef terms:
Here is the challenge: you and another volunteer sous chef will assist two former contestants as they prepare food for eight demonstrations over two days in the confined space of a trailer. Each demonstration will require 65 servings of food. And, to make this even more challenging, you will need to overcome a water supply issue.

The result: Lots of fun in tight quarters!

Food TV Drought

I’ve been looking for a replacement foodie show since the Top Chef season officially ended over a week ago. This week I tuned in to Hell’s Kitchen, which I enjoyed but can’t get too attached to as the season is almost over. There’s pretty much nothing worth watching on Food Network anymore – I caught 20 minutes of The Next Food Network Star, and let me tell you it was aweful, a trainwreck aboard a train challenge. A friend told me his experience with Throwdown with Bobby Flay was no better, so there goes that option.

What’s left in food entertainment? Let me know if you have any suggestions for how us food tv junkies can get our fix…
