Top Chef: McPherson Stuffs Stuffing, Valentine Drops Another F-bomb, Tesar Tesars.

Top Chef was pretty boring this week, even though they had Dana Cowen, editor of Fud & Wine Magazine, there to judge the QuickFire. (Dana has been on the show before, and she does not -- how you say -- fuck around, when it comes to judgery. If your food tastes like someone dumped in it, Cowen will let you know.) Plus, they had Tom Colicchio and Emeril Lagasse as team captains for the Thanksgiving elimination challenge.

This episode could've been full of explosions (was hoping McPherson would rip out her earrings and sous vide a bitch over a tomato bisque, or that Tesar and Valentine would make out), but mostly it was full of Carla yelling for no reason and McPherson not sous vide-ing anyone yet.

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
