Top Chef California "Stop the Presses"-- S13E01 - ***SPOILERS***

Top Chef is BACK. And this time, a whole state. California. They did the same thing a few years ago with Top Chef Texas

And speaking of Top Chef Texas, a contestant from that show is BACK. Grayson!! Remember her? I remember her. And I remember liking her a lot. I went back and did a search on the TC:Texas threads to job my memory. And it seems many others liked her too.

So..... GO GRAYSON!!

I predict the "unsanitary" chef will not last long.

Did you see his work area on the first challenge? Geez. So many dirty pots and apparently discarded food?

Auspicious start for Grayson! If not for some burnt garlic, she's done. Maybe for next weeks challenge, she can make some chicken parm or a nice baked ziti?

Didn't she have the same kind of attitude last time she was on?

But they seemed to like his food.

Any time I see the words "Stop the press(es)" I think "Vickie Vale!"

Solid cast. I did disagree with both of the eliminations. A simple green salad on the vegan team gets by, especially when she admits to the judges that she hates vegan.

This was from episode 2 not episode 1 and is a spoiler for those who have only watched the first episode.

I really enjoyed it and think the contestants are great (probably with the exception of Grayson who is not coming across very well so far).

No comment on the second episode.

I had Thanksgiving dinner at Tom Collichio's restaurant in NY last week (it was amazing and his staff is the happiest friendliest group I have ever encountered in a restaurant) - so - happy to have TOP CHEF back on.

All of the chefs I know, better home cooks and myself learn fairly early on that working clean reduces errors. That will be his undoing. His reuse of dirty tasting spoons, though I suspect is done more often than not in most restaurants, is a reason never to visit his because evidence trumps suspect. In the first challenge, I was a bit surprised that the judges, after witnessing him "double dip" didn't refuse to taste his food. I would have.

My early pick to win is Jason.
