You know, New York isn’t the town in America in the most dire need of more chefs. Couldn’t we have sent them to rescue the generally gawsh-awful restaurant scene in Mississippi, where, according to David McRaney, people queue up for hours for the grand opening of an Olive Garden?
But once they got in the kitchen, it was a kitchen. And the best chicken won (Hung), and the worst chicken lost (Sara), and the whole thing made me really want to fire up the stove. And that’s the real pleasure of watching Top Chef.
