For those who don’t know, I just had surgery. So this week all I am going to do is a couple of initial thoughts. Next week you will get a more detailed post;).
Finally they took Top Chef to New York. What took so long?
Quickfire Challenge: I love that they are getting to the speed challenges up front. Lets see if they actually have the technical skills to play with the big boys. Versus someone getting to hang around on just a quirky ingredient.
Elimination Challenge: NerdDad had a great question. Would it be better to make something that tastes really good but not as ethnic or use and ingredient you don’t know and it not taste good? I tend to say make what you know with a twist but at least it will taste good.
I will be back next week with a little more detail (and wit;)!
