Top Chef: Boston/Mexico – Ep 14 – One Win! Two Wins! Three Wins!

Welcome to Mexico! Cue the Hat Dance. Not that hat dance. The other hat dance! We are in the final round of the season and very shortly a brand new chef will be able to claim the title of Top Chef, the cash and all of the other thing Padma voiceovers every week. Six weeks after the action in Boston came to an end; the chefs make their way across the border, and the Imaginary Fence of McCain, into our neighbors to the south. Fish [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 12 – To Take A Risk, or Not To Take A Risk

OK, so here we are. Boston is being left behind – to deal with 300 inches of snow, apparently – and we are making our way to Mexico. We have a Top 4 ready to compete next week, but us viewers are not entirely sure which four of the five are going to be there. LCK was a cliffhanger as the show is getting the reveal of the winner ready for next week’s episode. One thing is for certain though – we have a 50-50 [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 11 – It’s A Family Affair

Spoiler Alert everyone! There really is no spoiling to be had as the only person eliminated this week from having a possible shot at being Top Chef took place on the web during LCK. No chance of accidentally letting slip who got their knife packing marching orders this week. Instead, the show elected to send one of them forward to the finale in Mexico. So, no elimination during the Elimination Challenge, and the winner earns a bye next week. That’s a pretty cool twist. It [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 10 – The One Where I Forgot The Show Was Back

Crap. Crap! Crap! crap! Double crap! Crap on a cracker! Crap on a cracker with a half jar or crusty salsa! I totally forgot Top Chef was back last week. I got too used to holiday schedule and zoned on it until I saw a spoiler on Twitter. Crap. The interesting thing is that if I hadn’t been spoiled I would have been thrown off by the show’s editing. Melissa has gotten such little air time this season – so few that I haven’t even [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 9 – They’re All Gonna Laugh At You!

This very quirky and very entertaining season of Top Chef motors along with one excellent challenge and one not so much. And we shall see how the show finishes up after having its two most charismatic contestants eliminated in back-to-back weeks. Let’s talk first about the bad challenge because it severely affected the good one. It’s all well and good when the show brings in a celebrity to spice up challenges. It’s when that celebrity seems to be very involved that risks are taken. Some [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 8 – How’s that for a plot twist!

It’s a 75-minute jam-packed episode so you know some wacky stuff is going down. The chefs look haggard after the grueling Restaurant Wars and are then dragged to the kitchen the next day for a Sudden Death Quickfire where they have to make a chowder. That’s rough! What makes this even rougher and perhaps a bit unfair – the losing chef will not get to pick an opponent from the other remaining chefs. Instead, all of the eliminated chefs file in and pick one from [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Episode 7 – It’s Time For Restaurant Wars

It wasn’t exactly the “Wars” that made the biggest pop culture impact of the week. That would be the one with the funky new lightsaber. However, for Top Chef fans and contestants, this is the signature episode of every season – Restaurant Wars. At times, I think that some chefs go on the show just to experience this challenge. And for the chefs, it is the moment that marks the endgame of the season – similar to the Merge in Survivor. The chefs love this [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 6 – An Authentic Top Chef Thanksgiving

Yay Top Chef! A great Immunity Challenge. A decent Quickfire with a bonus Survivor-like physical challenge, despite a typical Product Placement Bonanza. A dramatic elimination moment – even if it resulted in an inevitable one instead of a shocking one. But one thing I need to harp on again before getting into the episode. The stupid double elimination from earlier in the season. As I said then, if you are going to have one of these, use it right. Use it to make up for [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 5 – You Don’t Bring Scallop Noodles To War

For those of you who missed Top Chef: Duels, well, do we have the episode for you. For those of us who watched a little bit of that experiment and came away from it longing for another season of Just Desserts…well, the elimination was satisfying. This whole episode was all about the duels. About the duels. Oh, and also about the foil. Aluminum foil. And about messing with Revolutionary War history. Honestly, this one felt a bit like a placeholder as the inevitable finally came [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 4 – Where Everybody Knows Your Name

I know, that was easy. So what. It’s Cheers! I do want to bust out some clips about Albania. Or about Kelly Kelly Kelly. Or about groin injuries. Or maybe just a good old fashioned Thanksgiving food fight. Anyway, apologies for being late. As I said in my other show column – life gets in the way. For me, it has often got in the way in the last couple of years. But that’s ok. You don’t want to shed a tear for your friendly [...]
