Top Chef: Lady Artisinal Marmalade
And we’re back! Sorry I missed last week, guys; I was in the Dominican Republic. And yes, I might strike you as a foodie, but I spent the entire time eating crummy all-inclusive resort buffet food. If I was going to turn my brain off for a while, my palate would have to follow. Heck, I only ate processed food to make sure I didn’t get food poisoning. Me! The same guy who always...
A Sporty, Political Person's Take on Craig James
12/13/11 will henceforth be known as Craig James Liberation Day. ESPN’s most odious talking head will have to resign his position in order to run for the Senate from Texas. However, I have some bad news for everyone expecting this to take him off the air for good: He has no fucking chance of winning. If this were a Republican vs. Democrat race then yeah, he’d be the favorite...
Top Chef Recap: You Don't Win Friends With Salad
And we’re back! One thing I misjudged was just how douchey (douché?) the hosts were in the last episode. I think being around the 1% a lot has skewed my ability to hate them for being jerks. Anyway, we start out this episode with 1st grade-esque gender-based taunting, as there are only 5 men left. However, Periscope is one of them so it’s really 4 and a half. The chefs keep...

Ask Me Anything...About New York City →
Since so many of you love to come visit us for the holidays (even though we’re still in shorts weather 3 weeks before Christmas, no snow for you, out of towners!) I thought I’d do a special New York-themed Ask Me Anything, where I answer all your Gotham queries. And….go!
Top Chef Recap: Most Progressive Dallas
And we’re back! I had a whole post written about the chili cookoff last week but nobody reads Tumblr on Thanksgiving. So you’ll have to trust me, it contained much mirth. And glee that White Lafayette got the axe because, seriously, fuck him and his stupid hair and his bromance (seriously, that word was invented to describe how he acted) with Periscope. Padma tells the chefists,...
