Mmm, Padma, mmm
I came, I saw, I recapped. My first “Top Chef” recap is up at AfterEllen.com today. Not only is it my first recap of “Top Chef,” it’s my first recap ever. So, please, be gentle. As a fan of the show, recapping it is
exhausting thrilling. The recaps will run the Monday after each episode at AfterEllen. Since the premiere was mostly just introductions, nothing too crazy in this one. I look forward to the culling of the herd so I don’t have to rely on nicknames and/or mnemonic devices to keep everyone straight. Wait, sorry, straight is the wrong word with our three chefbians, plus an honorary chefbian (cough, Richard, cough) or two sprinkled in here and there. Also, as those delightful Amuse-Biatchers so aptly pointed out, what the fuck is up with all the fucking cursing this season, motherfuckers? My new sister in culinary snarkitude The Big Shamu over at The Karmic Kitchen suggested we change the name from “Top Chef: Chicago” to “Top Chef: Motherfuckers!” I could not fucking agree more. With that, chow’s on.
