It's a pretty Top Chef heavy week and all, what with season 12 premiering October 15. But now crewmembers are exposing a pretty nasty incident between Teamsters and the crew of Top Chef that happened this last June, and are blaming both Bravo and the production company, Magical Elves, for putting the team in a dangerous situation.
Chefs are remembering the Delaware chef Matt Haley, who died earlier this week while on a humanitarian trip in Leh, India. The chef was in a motorcycle accident, and died en route to a hospital in New Delhi. In 2014, he won the James Beard Humanitarian of the Year award.
Now that the fat lady’s sung (to the Grey Lady!) on who has actually been behind the @RuthBourdain Twitter handle, we decided to scroll back to beginning of the satirical account to revisit some of her/his best tweets.
Thanks, Ruth (Josh Friedland of Maplewood, NJ), for three years of being the food world’s favorite mashup (it’s the cronut, now). You always knew the wrong right thing to say.
