Holiday Dish

Last night Bravo brought together two "losers" from each of the past three seasons of Top Chef for a holiday competition that promised $20,000 to the one who could knock the stockings off of the judges and their world-class chef friends. It wasn't an easy challenge. Three courses head-to-head and after each course two competitors were told to "Pack your knives and go," leaving their following courses to go uneaten by those whom they wished to impress.

It was good to see Tre, Steven and C.J. again, but I could have gone forever without having to watch Marcel rolling his eyes at the judge's opinions, or hear Tiffani barking orders at her fellows like they were her personal staff of sou chefs. Betty and Josie were as annoying as ever and Sandie was, well, practically invisible. Still, it was a great show and I don't want to reveal the winner because I'm sure it will air several more times between now and Christmas, and some people may not have seen it yet. If you really want to know, go here.

I will say that I was disappointed in the final outcome, but that's life in the kitchen I guess, and I confess that my choice for winner was based entirely on personal bias. Hey, what else can you go on when you can't taste the food?


  1. I'm such a goddamn loser. I've watched this three times now. I can't help myself.

  2. Just blame it on Padma. She's worth watching.

  3. LOL!!!
    Yeah, I can't stand Marcel either, but I could do without Steven as well.
    Thank god they didn't bring back whiney puss Dave.
