So, any foodie, any serious foodie can rattle off a long list of movies that are centered around food, and I was surprised at the lack of imagination that these chefs came up. I think they probably thought, "What can I do well?" Which I understand -- it's a competition environment. What can I do? And what movie can fit that? What can we layer on top of that? Nothing seemed really inspired to me, except for Willy Wonka, and I'm not really a big dessert person. I'm a chocolate fiend.
So it was even more intriguing when they chose that as their inspiration and did a savory dish, did savory dishes. So, I think, we're eating a lot of food, and we've all eaten a lot of food in our lives because we're food people. So, I and Tom and Aisha Tyler and even Richard Roeper, I think we really appreciated the leap of creativity. And that's what we want. That's why we pick these challenges -- to really get out of you, or to really get out of the chef, their personal stamp. You know, what are they thinking? What makes this chef different from another chef?
Everyone on the show pronounces Padma in a hilarious way. They say pad-ma which in Hindi means FART-MOTHER. The correct way to say it is pud-ma. It is like people on TV are telling their mothers to fart.
Padma! I am a big fan of yours and the show. I have followed you since Globe Trekkers. I know how busy you are now with the baby, show, and everything else. If you ever need an assistant to help you juggle everything I am your gal! Serious! Take care and see you on Wed.
I just noticed the long scar on Padma's right arm. What happened? I am new to this site so I might have missed the explanation.
How this? a new food reality show: Top Chef vs The Next Food Network Star.......ok, Tom C & Bob T........put your heads together......yeah and get a round table and let Bobby Flay, Padma, Gail, Eric and Susie sit in judgement........oh yeah, let Ted Allen and Alton Brown do commentary............
Oi... sempre assito Top Chef, amo este programa, porque afinal comer é bom demais... e quem sabe cozinhar, com certeza tem um dom, porque eu sou um desastre na cozinha!!!! ;D E estive pensando que em todos os tipos de comida há desafios, mas acredito que nenhum desafio é maior que na comida light e diet. Eu sou diabética, sei do que estou falando, pois como tudo que surge de diet e light, e muitas vezes jogo dinheiro fora, porque a comida é horrivel, mesmo porque é uma comida muito sem graça, sem sal, sem gordura, sem açúcar, sem nada!!! Será que Tops Chefs não poderiam incrementar esse sabor aos olho e paladar? Uma temporada light e diet, seria um ótimo desafio, além de inspirardor para um público cada vez maior.
Hi .. always assit Top Chef, I love this program, because after eating is good too ... and who can cook, certainly has a gift because I am a disaster in the kitchen!! ;D And I was thinking that in all kinds of food there are challenges, but I believe that no challenge is greater than in light and diet food. I'm diabetic, I know what I'm talking about, as everything that comes to diet and light, and often set off money, because the food is horrible, especially because a food is very bland, no salt, no fat, no sugar , No nothing! Tops Chefs Will this increase could not taste the eye and palate? A season light and diet would be a great challenge, and inspirardor to a wider audience. translated by google ;D
