Most of my readers know that I love to cook, so it probably won’t come as a surprise that one of the few “reality” shows I’ve ever gotten in to is Top Chef on Bravo. I don’t know if anyone else is watching it, but tonight is the finale and Anthony Bourdain, the brilliant host of No Reservations who served as a guest judge on one episode this season, has written an essay with his thoughts on each of the top competitors. If you like Bourdain – and who doesn’t? – you’ll love it. I especially love his take on Mikey, the lovable screw up of the group that he described, while judging, as the love child of Betty Crocker and Charles Manson. And his description of why Marcel’s haircut would get his ass kicked in a real kitchen is great. Funny stuff as usual from Bourdain.
