Hung Huynh has been crowned the third Top Chef, joining the ranks of Harold “Perilla” Dieterle and Ilan Hall. In his victory podcast, we learn that he’s “kind of a smart guy”; an “exciting character on the show”; and always “in total control.”
We don’t begrudge the man his medal: He’s got heart, and if you’re not convinced, he’ll insist on it some more. As Hung says, “Soul is not something that flies around and lands in your food.” No, that’s bacteria. Or fruit flies.
Watch out, Wolfgang: Hung is watching, and learning.
