I suppose this is how you know Top Chef has truly become a bankable franchise: the spinoffs. Yesterday I caught the Holiday Special, which recycled several of the same contestants previously seen on the Season One versus Season Two Culinary Smackdown. Or whatever.
Of course they made some nice looking dishes. (And CJ tossed in one that probably tasted good but did indeed look a mess, a tower with a truly random sounding ingredient list. Delicata squash and blueberry crumble! Mmmm!) Fitting that Tiffani won, because she embraced the essence of what we are now watching: Leftovers.
