To thoroughly enjoy the glory that is Top Chef D.C., we welcome comedian Max Silvestri, who will be here every week to take us through season seven.
And, we're back. Didn't Vegas just finish? Yesterday? It feels like yesterday. I, for one, am still not over Kevin Gillespie's loss, and I personally taste the bitterness of his defeat in the back of my throat every time I swallow. (Oh boy.) But life is about moving on and sloughing off tragedy (how is it people are still talking about the oil spill when Kevin lost a cooking reality show eight months ago?), so let's all try to keep our eyes dry and focused on Washington D.C.
Did you know it's our nation's capital? Don't worry; if at any point this season you forget, a whole team of Top Chef assistant producers have almost surely written endless reams of copy to constantly remind us of just that kind of brain dead Kid's Meal placemat trivia. "Here in the nation's capital, our legislative branch is bicameral, so for today's Quickfire you must buy a camera and then take a picture of yourself cooking a legume on a piece of slate with a branch...." I am already exhausted.
