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.
It is now week two of America's Top Chef: District of Columbia, and I already miss our tentacled friend, John. Where is he now, do you think? Flowing through the trees of Michigan, I'm sure. I imagine as soon as he got home after his loss he declared to his co-op that he was going on a walkabout. Then his nose picked up the scent of an apricot tree far off in the distance, and he began tracking it through the fields of Detroit. (Are there fields in Detroit? Besides ones of ash, I mean.) "I'm glad I'm off that show. No "producers" or "health codes" to force me to wear shoes in my kitchen," he probably whispered (and lied) to himself, hanging by his legs upside down high up in a maple tree. Anyway, this week's episode involves kids, and schools. Neat!
