I want to be a rock star, a pro athlete... a butcher? I love it that shows like Top Chef, Iron America, and even Hell's Kitchen are part of today's water-cooler chatter. Or when personalities like Padma Lakshmi, Tyler Florence, and Guy Fieri are finding cross-over exposure outside of their food tv shows, Carl's Jr, Applebee's, and TGIFriday's respectively. And when I came across this story Young Idols With Cleavers Rule the Stage it made me smile. Food culture is pop culture. BTW, how many "celebrity chefs" can you name? Or, have you ever made a trip to go see one at a live "performance"?New York Times

  • I so wanted to go to one of the Top Chef Tour appearances in Virginia, but missed the window to get tickets and was too lazy to get in a Stand-By Line & wait with the sweaty masses. Was hoping to see if Stefan was that obnoxious & conceited in person, but I bet he is!
