    I interviewed there today - it was exciting, humbling, amazing, and scary all at once. I hope I get a call back :satisfied:

    I enjoyed her. They should have known what kind of food to cook for an old white woman from ND. I thought it was a good idea for a challenge.

    Joshua is likable(chubby mustache Sam Jackson hat wearer), but the mistakes me makes are easily avoided. Micah(Blaxican with gauged ear lobes) annoys me to no end. He just has a cynical smug face.

    Does anyone cringe as much as I do when they see this douchebag? As if his face wasn't infuriating enough, his insincere condescending voice...

    I can't say if I cringe as much as you do, but I do cringe.

    the question i have -- and he is not the only example, but certainly a prime one -- where the f* do these people come from? he's got like two restaurants that nobody's ever heard of and he's suddenly some kind of culinary arbiter? there's a whole group of 'em too. i've been covering food for 30 years and if i have to look up who a culinary "star" is, something's wrong.
    now get off my lawn and run along.
    eta: oh, and good luck redlantern.

    come on, John Tesar had to have known that Rick Moonen was judging somehow.

    I am enjoying this season a lot more than texas. So far I like the contestants and even Stefan seems to be very level headed and is cooking well. The only part that has made me scratch my head so far is in the first episode when Wolfgang puck is having them cook omelettes, every single one looked terrible, and only one of them got booted.

    that surprised me too. those were some hash-house omelets.
    but i agree that the cooking and competitions seem to be much better this year than last. last year was pretty much a parody of itself. yeehaw mfers.

    Yeah, I have to add to the outrage over the omelets. If you can't get the form right in a dish that's defined by form, and that dish is as classic a staple as a goddamned omelet, it's hard to see how you should get to be on this show. Puck was easy on them. WTF.

    Isn't an omelet one of those things every line cook should be able to do?

    I've had hash-house omelets that looked much better than those atrocities...

    I only saw Wolfie's and it was no great shakes. Line cooks needed to make omelets when omelets were still served in nice restaurants, so maybe 1970? At this point it is just one of those things that people know to say... "if I wanted to test a new cook, I would have him make an omelet!" But why, these days tweezing eyebrows is probably the best test for a new cook in a high end restaurant. Making an omelet is a good skill, though.

    Come to think of it...

    Let's make Top Chef 11 nothing but chefs over 65 and keep throwing them liquid nitrogen, micro-squab, corn-smut in plexiglas challenges...
