    But isn't it one of those things you learn in culinary school? I'm no cook, but it seems that the know-how and skills involved are fairly elemental--no?

    That was cool. Awesome to work with people who are on top of it all the time. Much different from anything I've ever done before. Surprising amount of young people. Seems like its a difficult place to work (high skill level, no margin for error), but simple - in that there is never any ambiguity - no corner cut, always do the right thing the right way. Even if I don't get or take the job, I'm really glad I got the opportunity to work there for a night.

    that's terrific. there's nothing like being in a great kitchen to remind you of just how far most restaurants fall short. the cutting corners is so endemic that it's almost unavoidable. and it takes a really crazy person to reset the parameters. but thank god for them.

    or the producers kept her in to keep up the drama. that red head chick was kind of funny to watch because she was kind of a trainwreck, but to most viewers she was probably pretty boring and non-polarizing...which brings in ratings.

    i know that's a common supposition ... but tom c insists that the choices are made only by the judges and strictly on merit. of course, it seems, there are some judges whose opinions he respects more than others.

    Visiting the folks for the holidays = no Bravo + no internet = trying to watch yesterday's episode on a slow internet connection via illegal stream at Panera (don't judge me, snobs).

    On the bright side, I'm not sure there's been a comment in all of Top Chef as charming and inadvertently funny as, "I've cooked for Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela. Twice!"

    I was wondering why producers even chose her.

    no idea why they did either. even in her own season, i remember being average at best.
