We’re down to the top 10 this week, and after a few weeks of “TC Roadshow” our chefs are headed back to Los Angeles to cook in the Top Chef kitchen once again. Everyone’s upset about Wesley’s elimination and Karen is over the moon about her win, but it’s a new day, which means new – harder – challenges are up ahead.
Another week, another Top Chef adventure; this time the chefs are off to the ‘Date capital of the US’, where they pick up three large baskets of dates, each one containing a different variety (Zahidi, Medjool and Deglet Noor), and damned if I knew these existed. Dates are dates to me. Sticky, sweet, and that’s about it.
Another week, another location for the Top Chef contestants. This time they’re off to cook in Palm Springs – or, as Jason puts it, the Gay Mecca: lots of gays, lots of old people, apparently. I’m really taking a liking to Jason – his discomfort at being surrounded by the macho-group of chefs in the hot tub was adorable.
