This was my first time watching Top Chef and I have to say I was crying too. This show has succeeded in encapsulating in 30 minutes almost everything that is wrong with our culture. I was initially enamored with the premise of young chefs cooking for such food icons as Jacques Pepin and Lydia but the subsequent trashing of their preparations followed by public execution brought me to tears.
I want to find everyone who was thrown off this show and make them a big cup of tea and some buttery toast.
Though I have enjoyed Bravo's programming in the past I am sad to see them serving up a big pot of meanness.
