I just got through rewatching All-Stars as well, and I do still find Isabella more offensive. That said, the narrative that Richard had built for himself about how he choked and that's THE ONLY REASON why he lost continues to make me so annoyed. You may have choked, but you also just got plain outcooked, dude. She won challenges on her own merits throughout that season.

Padma Lakshmi visits the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen to make very fancy scrambled eggs with champagne with Carla. Can she follow along using verbal instructions only

Just remembered Carrie’s oven in the snow... oh, how I miss last season! 

By the way, Joe F.’s wife Hillary just gave birth to their “Flambino”. A baby boy named Luka.

Saw that this morning, so sad for her. I just got the all clear after stage 3 cancer, so feel this really deeply.

I'm so happy for you. And so sad for Fatima.

Cancer SUCKS.

Very sad news about Fatima. Was her family able to be with, I’m not sure if they were still in Pakistan or not?

I think of Fatima and smile. She was a joy to watch. She will be missed.

I was saddened, but not surprised, to read this. I think Padma was with her near the last.

I just finished reading a book this morning where the protagonist dies of cancer and now this news. No matter how expected it still hits like a sucker punch. She was such a sunny personality and great talent. It just sucks.

I’m glad Da Bears saw her before she left us.

I was thinking the same thing.

how do you mend a broken heart? Fati's family has provided a roadmap.

Thanks for sharing the lovely, albeit sad tribute to Chef Fati. I hope what they've written resonates for others--i know it does for me. That was truly beautiful.

I would hope that someone takes up the task of publishing some of her recipies, with her family's permission of course.

I would love a chance to cook her food and also remember her in that way.

She said in an article she wrote last year that her brother was collecting them (she was making something new each day for a while), so I'm sure we'll see them published at some point.

Just a trivial aside, but it's fun to see some of the pics of her all dolled up.

I'm crying now.

Gail was in Israel recently on a Celebrity Chef Birthright trip. Many, many chefs were there too ( Jonathan Waxman, Nancy Silverton, even Leah from season 5.) . Also there was my fave, Eden Grinshpan, host of Top Chef Canada, who is good friends with Gail (both are from Toronto). Lots of photos in Eden’s  highlights on Instagram. Check her out at edeneats.

Yesterday was National Pizza Day. So Padma had some pizza.

I have a strange craving for pizza now.
