Top Chef Masters - Page 2

post #21 of 59
It was entertaining. I loved the comments from the Girl Scouts and the reactions from the chefs while they were watching via hidden camera. "That one is going to be a New York Times food critic in 20 years."

I wish the chef competing for the autism related group had picked another group instead. Not because autism research isn't good but rather that group he was playing for has their own agenda which isn't necessarily helpful to kids on the spectrum.

I missed Padma. Katie is ok but she's no Padma. I never thought I'd be saying that.

Anyone see the second episode last night? I thought it was much better than the first, the personalities were more interesting.

I really like the fact that this concentrates on food and creatively, not on "drama". Its so nice to see the chefs interact pleasently with one another and know I'm not going to have to watch the bickering/backbiting/bitching from the regular show. And I love watching these very accomplished chefs tackle the challenges.

The first episode was so funny because I was known for cooking dinner for 12 in my dorm room on very not-permitted hot plate, hot pot, and microwave. I even drained pasta in the shower.

I totally agree. Not that I don't like watching the drama in the regular series, but I do enjoy watching these prefessionals interact. They all seem to have a lot of respect for each other. It's a pretty big difference.

I love this show, so far my fave is Hubert Keller, I liked his vibe alot and also that he seemed not to take himself too seriously.
Also liked the chef whose nephew was waiting for a heart transplant, and who also cooked the seared tuna,(drooool!).

As a chef, that has worked in many kitchens, I can tell you that there is not so much respect and professionalism in the chef world. Or maybe I have not yet traveled in the "fabulous chef" circles yet!

Ludo bigged the heck out of me the whole time. He seemed a little... immature. I can guarentee Rick Bayless didn't see that he was doing a quesadilla and decide to do a taco to copy him. Come on now. He is one of the top chefs of Mexican cuisine in this country. If I had to cook tongue for street food, tacos de lengua would be my first choice too. That must have been a given for him.

On a side note, Rick Bayless is my new chef crush.

I agree completely. Bayless was great and I really like both his food (well, as much as one can via TV) and his attitude.

I loooooove "Mexico: One Plate at a Time," so I was definitely rooting for Rick Bayless. And his food looked awesome ... I hate tongue, and I still wanted to try it.

And yeah, Ludo struck me as really arrogant. I'm guessing he's just one of those highly competative people who don't always handle the act of competing well. For all of that I was glad to see he smiled and seemed pretty gracious in the end though.

I miss Padma. I wish she were hosting this show. I just can't seem to warm up to the host of Top Chef Masters.

He's awesome. He comes off well and his food looks delicious. I learn something new each time I see him on TV.

Okay, what happened last night? Usually they show the episode twice, so we decided to wait until the second time they showed it, after the kids were asleep. So, instead of showing the new episode again, they repeated the first episode!!!
I hope they show the new one again before next week.

did not see last weeks episode. It looked like fun, using offal and trying to get it look appetising enough for the everyday person to eat it.
My dvr myteriously did not record

I too can't warm up to the new host....Padma is missed!

I really liked Rick Bayless and was so glad her beat the French dude, what an attitude!

My kids want to know when we can try some of the things they make LOL

Was it on this week? My DVR didn't tape anything, and all the reruns coming up are of previous episodes, nothing new for this week. I hope I didn't miss it!

This week was just a rerun, I think... I saw the preview for the next episode and it's next Wednesday.

I have a feeling Rick knew to do a taco from the word "streetfood" and go. DUH. I have a tongue and a few livers as well as a heart in my freezer from our beef side. Now I want to have my own organ grinding or girls and guys w guts party. DH is planning on making tongue tacos w the tongue soon.

As far as crush- Nah. I have met him a few times at his restrnts, eating and also his business was on of my clients, and I own a few of his cookbooks (one autographed). He is an extremely nice person, but not a hottie such as fabio on the show. I guess more for you then!

I also love his show on PBS.

This is the first episode of Top Chef, ever, where every single thing looked completely gross! And I am a great appreciator of fine food and an adventurous eater. it was all raw fish and unappetizing combinations. Even those soft cooked eggs that got rave reviews looked mushy and gross. And who would want pink sterno smeared on their dinner?? When the daikon "scallop" opened up to reveal steak tartare, I felt nauseous! I hope next week is a little more palatable! And I thought it was too ironic that the quickfire would involve tying their arms behind their backs, when the one chef's father was born with one arm! It did seem a little un-PC!

i enjoyed it, but could not believe the potty mouth on wylie. it's funny how much they change from being judges to being competitors.

i was rooting for graham (he was the most likeable and his food seemed interesting). both the ladies bored me (especially the winner).

agreed. what a spoiled brat he was. i couldn't believe he made that comment about rick copying him. i mean c'mon. i'm pretty sure he knew what he was doing when he arrived at the market.

I liked Ludo-it was Bayless that got on my nerves. I would have liked for Wilo to have won that round.
post #39 of 59
So who watched last night?

I really liked all the chefs but the one from Vegas. Michael from Napa- I remember him from some pbs shows. I forgot how cute he was! He is aging gracefully.

I wanted the younger chef from Denver to win so the hospital could get the $$ since I can relate myself but I enjoyed him on the show.

I never knew basil as a dessert flavor was so revolutionary. I don't know, maybe I've just watched too much Iron Chef.
