Michael Chiarello did a great quinoa pasta with salsa verde, gremolata and tomatoes last night, but it was on Bravo. Mario Batali has his full episodes videos on Hulu.com.
The odds are against the person picked tonight to become a regular on the network.
I think more people are checking out the food blogs for useful information. The TV side seems to be more about filling the gaps between the commercials with easy-to-produce, too-much-personality entertainment. Why do I care what Ted Allen thought was the best thing he ever ate?
She's impressed some of heavy hitters in the last episode. She was the first to be saved.
I think she came to the competition well prepared.
Now, with all the false starts of Jeffrey and Melissa revealed, the audience is primed for snarkiness and loaded with plenty of ammo. "Jeffrey, remember that risotto that was a 'disrespect to Italy?'"
Top Chef Masters is continuing to be a delight, with a lot of camraderie and good food. I guess it's hard to get good restaurant chefs to do these shows, or else they come at a high price.
Not much reason to watch the finale. It's not about food, but about personality.
It's pretty much a slamdunk that Melissa wins, or if both she and Jeffrey are selected, it's still pretty much watch and see how they do on their shows.
What's the value-added proposition for the loyal FN viewer who cares about food?
One time Susie said to Jeffrey that he didn't have a clearly indentifiable brand (I'm paraphrasing), and that he wouldn't have his own line of pots to sell.
I'm more interested in the food, both for interesting flavors and maintaining a healthy lifestyle (go Ellie!). Maybe what's wanted is a star who'll do for their online kitchenware store what Billy Mays did for OxyClean. Let's wait and see.
