Bravo's Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi knows her way around the kitchen. But when there's something she doesn't know — or when she encounters someone from whom she can learn — she's all about listening and learning.
Most recently, she just acknowledged a person who dropped some knowledge on her where she might have least expected it: from the driver's seat of her Uber.
Padma took to her Instagram to share a shoutout to the immigrant driver with the recipe that wowed her.
"If you know, then you know," she wrote. "Yesterday I got the best, most detailed goat #Biriyani recipe from my Bangladeshi Uber driver. Thx Mohammed!!"
And hey, Mohammed — might we be seeing you on Top Chef sometime soon? Looks like you already have Padma's seal of approval.
