  1. Here's hoping excellent chefs around the world are thinking "hey that 100k could be mine!" and we get some top rate talent in future seasons (if the producers are smart enough to pick the top talent and not what they think will generate the most drama...)
  2. Ok, Hosea is a Top Chef and Richard B. is not a Top Chef. Well, maybe if Richard is lucky Hosea will hire him as his sous-chef full time....
  3. Same here; avocado mousse sounds yummy! we love avocado shakes!
  4. Tony buying that shirt was very disturbing; contrast this to the Laos episode--what would that Laotian family think if they saw that? I still watch his show, but I view him very differently now.
  5. Loved the Spain episode. ALL FOOD!!!! No hang gliding or whatever; which you can get from every other travel show.
  6. Sticking to my guns on this one. ← I think Steph will win. Unless she blows it big time (and I don't think she will) there has to be some pressure--conscious or unconscious--to have a female winner. So all things being equal I think she would get the nod. But she is talented enough anyway to take the win, so my money's on her!
  7. Just had to chime in as we are in BA right now. We have to say we highly recommend Cabaña Las Lilas BECAUSE it is touristy. We have been to three other restaurants for steak before going there and while good, we were getting frustrated. We like our meat rare. After ordering and explaining in both English and our limited Spanish (using the recommended words for ¨juicy¨ and red and even pointing to examples), our meat always arrived with just a little pink in the middle. It seamed to be a case of them knowing better than us the way it should be prepared. At Cabaña Las Lilas, the cuts were very thick (which we also were not getting at the other places) and red bloody, fatty mounds--exactly what we were looking for! Plus we got pretty lucky and walked up with no reservations and got seated near the water on a beautiful night. If you can afford it and that´s what you are looking for, then go. We were very glad and spent a third of what it would cost in the states (we didn´t order any sides or wine, we were just there for meat!). Also go to the other places too to experience Argentine style.
  8. Nope--I do! I usually tend to look at the positives in people though...just weird that way! I love her eyes!
  9. She's always been cute to me, but looked especially good last night!
  10. I agree with you about Peets. I'd read where Starbucks roasts their coffee by some kind of program, but Peets still uses a real person that uses their art and instinct to roast to just the right degree... And here's hoping for a Taylors to open in Southern Cal! Would it be possible for them to become a chain and still maintain the same quality?! Well, one more month til my SF trip!
  11. so what does a dozen raw oysters go for at Hog Island?
  12. I agree; I guess we're all probably biased here, but he should spend much more time and info on the food!!
  13. Are there any recommendations for those of us that can't afford the upscale shops?
  14. As for the price, I'm sure we'll be seeing this is a 99 Cent Store near you soon!
