One thing I”ve learned watching “Top Chef” is you”ve really got to eat dinner before the show, because otherwise you open up your fridge, look around and get depressed. Just a thought. Anyway, this all-star season is especially tempting, as so far I haven”t seen anything gag inducing (not always a given in previous seasons) and tensions were already running high in the first week. So let”s get to it!

Apple slices with exotic coatings are still apple slices, I”m afraid.
But back to the food. When the judges have the temerity to tell Jen her bacon was bland, she tells them no, it was perfect. I really want to grab Jen, shake her and say calm down, woman! She really isn”t doing herself any favors by defending a dish the judges hate. I really don”t understand why she”s fighting them so hard.
