Top Chef Duels episode 5, a culinary egg-stravaganza
I’m a bit disappointed there isn’t any real dramatic hook this week on Top Chef Duels. The chefs are bitter arch rivals, nor have they harmed one another during their appearance on Top Chef Masters. There’s no beef, no name calling, and no poking of one another in the stew room, where’s the drama we’ve come to expect from our reality shows?
I do love me some Top Chef Masters, there’s nothing better than watching the big name established chefs become famous for the personalities and not their restaurants. Because of shows like Top Chef Duels and other cooking shows cooking in general has gained the attention of no only media, but the average everyday Joe. Before the Top Chef type shows hit the airwaves, I had no idea what geoduck was or that you could eat something that sounds absolutely disgusting.
