Besides Glee, (whose season ended last week), Top Chef is the only show I feel compelled to watch every episode. This season is in Washington, DC, and Padma's back with Tom Colicchio. I can't wait.
As the blog Obama Foodorama details here, next week's Back to School episode will challenge the "cheftestants" (yes, that's really what they call them), to create a healthy, kid-friendly meal for only $2.68 per child, the reimbursement rate schools receive for each child who is eligible for free lunch under the federal program. Should be interesting--and bring awareness to our need for school lunch reform in America.
Who else loves Top Chef?
