Top Wednesday

YAY!  Top Chef day has arrived!  Teasers are Todd English and a ‘dice roll’ for number of ingredients that the chefs can use.  Hmmmm…  What if you get a 1?  What WOULD you cook if you could only use 1 ingredient?  Are you allowed to season?  If not, I would cook SPAM.   SPAM is nature’s perfect dish.  Seriously, SPAM aside, what is the perfect, stand-alone food?   I would suggest an egg.  Think about it – let me know.  Anyhoodle, I will try to live-twitter Top Chef, but may be slightly behind live, due to babies and whatnot.  Until then, a little food pRon for you:

    Don’t these shows usually have some sort of pre-set pantry that you can use in addition to the potentially 1 item you can choose? I haven’t seen any of these shows since the early days of Food Network with “Ready-Set-Cook!”, which was a lot of drama and little substance.

    Anyway, if I had to choose, I would consider carefully the humble potato.

    Yeah, Bravo was weak and allowed them to use salt, pepper, and olive oil (?) in addition to their numbered ingredients. I think the people with higher numbers were at more of a disadvantage.
