It's that coveted day of the year -- when boys and girls become men and women, chefs become better chefs, and all of the media will immediately start debating who deserved a James Beard nomination and who didn't. Get excited!
Mom is finally selling houses! Problem is she isn’t licensed. No big whoop for her, the test will be a breeze! Except she freaks when she meets Kim, a mega realtor who’s sold 358 houses and is getting recertified. She walks out of the test, assuaging her failure with a Chipwitch. Mmmm…now that’s something I can get behind: Chipwitch and a mostly Mom-centric episode.
Yeah, we’re cool kids who got invited to the premiere party of Top Chef: Masters, which happened last week, for some reason. Why do they hold things that far in advance? Premiere parties should be much closer to the premiere! Take a page out of Harry Potter book parties, PR folks!
Held in partnership with Chase Sapphire Preferred (there were blue potato chips everywhere, which we swear is their trademark food — we’ve seen them at other events, too), the event featured seven of the thirteen chefs appearing this season and the dishes they made in the first episode. We have to say, we’re impressed that they were able to come up with anything quite so delicious after seemingly skydiving into a field of sheep.
See what the Master cheftestants were able to whip up in the gallery below, with our apologies to Richard Sandoval, whose Seared Salmon and Beef Tiradito also tasted excellent. We scarfed it down and weren’t able to get a photo.
