So, just a reminder - the new season of Top Chef begins tomorrow and takes place in New York!

Should be good!

Instead of flipping back and forth, you can watch Top Chef immediately after the CMA awards. They play it twice in a row each week. Works great for my dvr smile

^^^and if you miss an episode they usually air it before the new one the following week if you don't have a dvr! Great all around!

Yea, I actually have my DVR set to record the entire season of Top Chef. So I'll have tonights episode recorded and watch it in the morning before I come to work. Still, my curiosity will have me flipping channels.

Ok, so I can't say I'm surprised that the two chefs just out of culinary school were the first to go.

I'm not sure they could have possibly realized what was in store for them.

Looks to be an interesting group - I haven't picked a favorite yet.

No one stood out for me last, so I haven't picked a favorite.

I haven't picked a favorite yet, however I do know who I want to leave. Carla, her eyes freak me out!

As the baby says in the E-Trade commercial "kind of creepy"

My favorite was the one who was kicked out even before she made it past the first quickfire frown

She used to be a chef here in Cincinnati, and I love Jags.

Um, she couldn't peel or cube apples, BF. I hesitate to think what she'd cook. By the way, what was the term Tom used for dicing?

bruniose was the term (finely dice). I couldn't remember - just that it began with a "b" so I looked it up! grin

I think she got cut because of the simplicity of a salad. The others were more creative.

Did anyone watch this week's show?

How did Jill make it onto the show? No attempt at creating a hot dog, and then after the elmination challenge, unable to defend her dish.

I was thinking the same thing!

I still am having trouble picking a favorite, but I might stand behind Fabio. He seems to have great skills, does that gastro-molecular stuff too and I most definitely love the kind of food he cooks.

^^^what she said! Ariane is way too insecure and I am not impressed with what she had made so far.

Question: Would you even order anything off of a menu with the word "surprise" in it?
