Hi, everybody! I wanted to take the time to respond to some of your questions and commentaries, especially some of the more negative ones. It's been such a pleasure being given the opportunity to blog about Season 2, and I am glad that we (Tom, Gail, Padma, Harold, Dave, and I) have been able to give you our individual perspectives, as well as provoke some reactions from you. Thank you all for watching and reading!

The three of you have inspired us in different ways but together I think you'd make a killa team. Do you think the three of you would consider working together? Congratulations on your success and we hope to hear more from you!
The Peppermonkey and the Top Chef are two of my favorite people in this world. Harold has his hands full with opening Perilla, and we just found out this past holiday season that Dave will be moving east to take on the job of Executive Chef at Lola in Soho (which is right down the street from me). I think most of us have taken separate paths after the show, and life goes on (I didn't quit my day job, if you know what I mean), but I am also incredibly grateful that we have stayed in touch with each other. I have offered both Dave and Harold my assistance with filling their kitchens with good cooks when the time comes.
