Korean food is not comfort food?

Posted by Tammy John Kessler, a food writer/blogger for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution posted his latest article called Chef’s Night Out with Tom Colicchio, about a chef’s night out with Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio and local Top Chef alumni Richard Blais and Kevin Gillespie.

Top Chef: Scallops and Ceviche (s06, ep05-06)

Someone warned me that the next episode of Top Chef was the worst one ever. Nah, not the worst one, I think. Cooking in the desert. The obligatory outdoor challenge. I kinda liked it.

Yea, HUNG!!

Just watched the “Top Chef” season 3 finale. Actually having some waterworks. I want to comment more about this season and last–but not now. All I can think of is — WOW! Dreading going to sleep tonight. I know I’m going have another high stress “Top Chef” dream where I’m one of the contestants. It’s the high stress recurring dream that has replaced the old Jurassic Park dinosaurs...
