I think in all the years Top Chef has been on the air, Padma had the quote of the entire life of Top Chef on television! Tonight’s challenge was about cooking vegetarian in a Tom Collichio’s CraftSteak in Las Vegas.
Padma was commenting about her experience with a very spicy dish she just sampled and blurted out:
“…it was like a prick at the tip of my tongue”
Then guest judge Natalie Portman says “Oooh you should say that…” with a finger to her lips.
Padma then talks about the shallots and then the garlic blossoms…
“the garlic blossoms are some small but big in your mouth…”
Then Tom chimes in and says “we went from a little prick to big in your mouth…” and someone at the end of the table then adds, “…that’s how it usually goes…”
OMG, one of the funniest things I’ve heard!Filed under: Top Chef!
