Top Chef Judges Rate the Unicorn Food Trend

Naturally, Bravo's Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi is forthcoming with food feedback. That means, she'll gladly shout you out if you're her Uber driver and happen to come correct with a killer biryani recipe during the course of the ride. (Holler, Mohammed from Bangladesh!) 

How to Watch

Watch the Top Chef Season 21 premiere on Wednesday, March 20 at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

It also means she's going to call out food trends that she's just not feeling — looking at you, sous vide. (Padma: "I was over sous vide before I really got into it. If I wanted steamed food, I would go to the hospital.") 

Now, we happen to know another food trend Padma is completely over — and its name is poke.

"My least-favorite food trend is the poke bowl," she told Us Weekly as part of its "25 things you didn't know about me" feature.

Padma's not alone in her scrutiny of the food craze that popped up a few years ago and spread like wildfire. Read what other Top Chef alum have to say about the poke trend.
