I was going to ask you about those guys. They seemed like hipsters of the culinary world. Pretentious and douchebag all in one smarmy package.
Top Chef Texas - Page 3
And this season could be good. The moto guys are interesting cooks, but douchers. Terrebrune and the chilam bilaam guy are good cooks but I think their cooking is too niche to win top chef. He only does mexican and she only does rich southern food. Im interested in seeing the black giy from north carolina and the asian guy from louisville cook. Oh and the spiaggia chef will be fun to watch
Looking back, I think the purpose of the elimination of half the field in the first two episodes is to reduce the likelihood of hacks/dead weight making it in. In past seasons there have been some non-desirable chefs that have gone far past their time.
Really interested in the large black gentleman (god, that beard is epic) and the deliberate speaking Asian man.
The weakest Top Chef winners in my opinion were: Ilan, Harold, and Hosea.
Have any of the winners, other than Blais, Voltagio, and Izard done anything significant with their careers after the show? I know some of them have restaurants but since I hear pretty much nothing about them, i am guessing their joints are pretty mediocre?
Izard's Girl and the Goat is doing gangbusters last I checked, booked months in advance. I wouldn't call it Top Chef calibre haute cuisine, but the food is good. She's opening up a second restaurant soon. I think winning Top Chef made a lot of this possible with respect to raising her profile.
Kind of meh about the start of the current season, but I feel that way about the beginning of every season until the contestants' true personalities come out, so I'm going to keep watching. Also, Padma.
the horrible over the top weeping flamers make TCJD absolutely unwatchable for me.
I still like you though rach!
