  1. Small Talk: We Of Fiddleheads And Poutine

    Eden just opened a restaurant in New York called Dez (as in desert). Check out her Instagram for more details. There are reviews online. She just filmed a segment for Good Morning America. Eden also confirmed that Food Network Canada is accepting applications for Season 7 of Top Chef Canada.
  2. Bad chefs, the worst of Top Chef.

    I like Angelo. It was Mr. Pea Purée that got on my nerves. Just watched the all-star season reunion show. They had a compilation of Mike Isabella burping and scratching himself. Gross.
  3. Top Chef in the Media

    Do Americans have access to foodnetwork.ca? Top Chef Canada full episodes are there Here in Canada, I don’t have access to any videos from Bravo’s website or their YouTube channel.
  4. Top Chef in the Media

    James Beard Awards are tonight. So far, Karen from Manbun’s season and Nina Compton are winners.
  5. The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    I listen to his podcast sometimes. I like when he, and other top chef alum, talk about behind-the scenes stuff. My fave episode was the one with Gail Simmons. She went to my college and her husband is from my town. I just love her. The podcast is called Starving for Attention with a Richard Blaise.
  6. I live in Canada. We watch this show on Sunday nights. I forgot that it’s aired on Mondays in the States. I am happy for Nacho, but I miss Heather. She was my fave.
  7. Top Chef in the Media

    Just watched Beat Bobby Flay. Brian Malarkey (season 3) was a contender. Leah (season 5) was a judge and so was Dana Cowan (formerly of Food and Wine magazine).
  8. Iron Chef Gauntlet: Gladiators Ready!

    Sigh...I miss Chef MacKay. As for my other Canadian, Nicole Gomes said in an interview that after doing Top Chef twice, and now Iron Chef, that she won’t be competing in any more cooking competitions. Therefore, I am assuming that chef Lefevre makes it to the end.
  9. Top Chef in the Media

    Top Chef Canada just had an elimination challenge where the chefs had to cook food from different regions of Mexico. I couldn’t stop thinking of Claudette. Regardless of country, chefs are all the same. No one wanted to do desserts. The bottom three consisted of two who prepared a dessert. Other differences: zero footage of the contestants’ house. No Last Chance Kitchen. Extreme comraderie: they cheered for the guy who volunteered to do dessert because he “ took one for the team”. Girl crush on the host Eden Grinshpan. Her Instagram is hilarious.
  10. Iron Chef Gauntlet: Gladiators Ready!

    I am a huge fan of Nicole Gomes. Loved her on Top Chef season 3, where she swore like a sailor and was nicknamed The Tasmanian Devil. In our All-Star Season, she rocked it and took home the victory. This week, I loved her kind words to the young chef who left. Her use of our typical use of ‘eh?’ at the end of a statement was funny, eh? Agree with the previous commenter that the bottom two should fight to stay in the competition. I find Baloo boring and someone that I am surprised is still there. At least Dale MacKay was interesting and hungry for the title. Lefevre is likeable. I won’t be mad if he wins.
  11. The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    I saw Jeremy Ford (manbun’s season) as a judge on Beat BobbyFlay.
  12. Season 6

    Agree regarding Nathan. He seems really nice and I am sure his restaurants have delicious food. Competition cooking just wasn’t for him. I am happy that we don’t see the chefs at the contestant house. I would rather see them in the kitchen. Everyone seems so nice and kind to each other. So happy to not see the nasty cattiness that was on the American version.
  13. Season 6

    Sadly, Dale just got kicked off of Iron Chef. I was sad to see him go.
  14. Top Chef in the Media

    I watched Chopped today. The guest judges were Tiffany Faison and Dale Talde. One contestant works at Red Rooster. There was a photo of him at work. Adrienne was in the background of the photo.
  15. Season 6

    Elia was on Top Chef Mexico with Claudette from Top Chef season 15.
