Yeah Andy was trying to stir the pot yet again to get something juicy for the guests to talk about. I'm glad someone called Andy out on his absurdity. He is a s*** stirrer.

Well it seems like he leaked who was going to be in the finale if I'm looking at it correctly on his exit blog post on his website. What do you guys think?

yeah I don't like watch what happens live either. I think he does things just to be controversial or to get a rise out of people.

Couldn't DH be construed as d*** head? Why doesn't anyone say DW? Thats why i don't like acronyms.

Top Chef AllStars Finale: Richard vs. the D-bag.
Where is Bourdain????!?! If Bourdain was here, do you think we would have the same chefs at the finale? It doesn't look like he will be in the finale JT either from the previews.

I was dissapointed in Carla. Its a game against herself. She fights with her own doubt. Once she gets out of her head, things will shine. I kinda agree with the judges though, sweet potato, apple, and pork? Sounds too sweet for me. But undercooked pork? thats a no-brainer.

Other "choys" besides bok choy?

baby bok choy! I like it stir fried and served with oyster sauce on top. Also you can serve it in won ton soup. Also american stir fried noodles like teriyaki noodles or yakisoba noodles. You can do a variety of things with veggies like these. Yummy flavor and good for you.

I think she *might* be referring to the part where they dive for their food, and have to make something...I am assuming from the previews. Richard Blais' hairdo was kinda crazy when he's at JT. I will be glued to my TV!

And I agree with the Hosea comments. Go get um Carla!

I really thought it was going to be Carla the way she was talking throughout the show. And the way they said none of her ingredients did not make sense. But the challenge seemed really hard! to cook for 300 ppl, and still make it out alive. Their gonna beat these chefs until they come out crying.

Is it ok to complain to the manager that the food portions are too small for the money?

My brother in law just did this exact thing. He complained to the manager on how small the salmon was for the price. In the end, he got another piece of salmon for free. After that experience, I doubt my sister and her husband will ever go back. Hell, why not tell them how you feel? Its not like they will have your business afterwards if you have been duped with the food portion.

For those of you that love chef shows...

I work nights, weekends, and holidays. But I do get benefits. I guess there's not a lot of money in food blogging or writing is there?

For those of you that love chef shows...

Would you ever change your career to go into the food industry? I'm almost 30, in a decent paying job, but I don't love it. I'm not exceedingly happy when I go to work, I do healthcare, so totally opposite from the food industry and all that it entails. Anyway, just wanted to know what career options are out there for someone who loves to watch these shows, loves to cook, but kinda in limbo as for what i should do. I don't know if my interest is just a nice hobby or could make a great career. I guess I just would like a little inspiration and creativity where I feel that my current career is lacking. thoughts?

Anyone else love Aloe Vera juice

yes i love the stuff too! Its the same type of texture like the inside of a grape. And I'm talking about the korean version not the one you buy at the health food store. I'm assuming its probably tastier than the healthfood store version!

Does Top Chef need a new host?

actually, padma's grown on me. She used to have a really annoying way she would draw out her words. Kinda pretentious.

Yeah I agree, it wasn't very interesting. I think Kevin won because of Micheal Voltaggio. Not a big fan of Kevin.

seriously bummed!!! She was from Beaumont!!!! I was rooting for her! SO maybe they did the foreshadowing with Kevin just to throw all of us off. Maybe the writers read the chowhound threads!!! Well she definitely is my fan favorite.

I wanted to see her in the finals. This isn't as big as Carla's upset loss in the finals but I dont know who to cheer on now.

Well, I never knew that there was an extended judges table on bravotv.com! Thanks Linda Whit and all the other members! Yes it is clear that Kenny needed to go after they definitively voted that his dishes were not up to par. Kenny seriously has an inflated ego and consistently overdresses his dishes. It was a good episode.

Pappasito's condiment (in Taco Trio menu item)

OK, I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know how to make the pickled onions and bell peppers that comes as a side condiment on the Taco Trio plate at Pappasito's? The spice is so yummy which makes the condiment you put on the tacos equally as yummy. I don't know how to make pickled anything and would like to learn so I can make it at home.

If you know the answer, you rock and will win a free hug.
