Blogging about Top Chef…October 17, 2006
Wednesdays are always a good day to be a food lover in the US — the food section comes out, the week is half over so that genius kitchen creation or that dinner reservation seem all the closer — and you know that soon you will be eating with family and friends. However, it’s even better this week for pop culture and food types such as my wife and me.
Starting tomorrow night at 11 PM, Bravo is bringing back its hit show Top Chef for a second installment. For those of you not familiar with the show, it’s Project Runway, American (or your own region’s version) Idol, and Survivor with a culinary point of view —in essence, a cooking reality show with eliminations.
While I try to play the “too cool for a reality show” card, I was hooked last season and watched every episode. I loved it. While I did enjoy the guilty pleasure of the snarky, edited-for-TV battles between the contestants, I most enjoyed it because of the food and to see people’s take on the food.
Because of this love, I’ve been excitedly waiting for its return since it was first announced. As a result, my wife and I have decided to hold our own little Top Chef discussion on My Husband Cooks. We will be watching the show each week and putting up a little comment the morning after the show. Feel free to join in. We know many of you have razor sharp wits and can’t wait to hear your takes.
See you Thursday AM!
