Straight to the Quickfire this week everyone, and I have to say I’m pretty excited there’s only one more episode left after this.

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 11 Recap

May 22, 2012 Top Chef Canada

Back-back-back up, reverse-reverse Cause I – I liked you the way you were Keisha Chante in the house! Drake’s ex-girlfriend is here because she loves mac and cheese and today’s Quickfire Challenge is cooking with Kraft Dinner. Seriously. I’ll never understand why they save these sponsored challenges for the end of the show. Why are […]

We’re in the home stretch everyone! Only six chefs left! Shout outs to Flemingdon Park! Go Trista! DALE is back! In a DEEP V! Whoop whoop!

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 9 Recap

May 7, 2012 Top Chef Canada

I watched last week’s episode wrapped in a blanket on the couch and didn’t take notes, but this week I’m sitting upright, laptop in place, let’s go! Also, my friend Katie was in Ottawa last week and was raving about Jonathan’s restaurant Side Door…I totally think he’s going to win.

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 8 Recap

May 1, 2012 Top Chef Canada

I’m recapping this one from memory you guys, because my interest in this show has dropped to an all-time low, and I didn’t even take notes while watching. After last week’s trailBLAISing episode, this week was pretty boring. Plus, they already had a challenge to cook lunch for a construction crew…so this was pretty much […]

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 7 Recap

April 24, 2012 Top Chef Canada

Look you guys, I’m no Veronica Mars.  But if two IP address traces, a promise from both my brothers that this is not prank, and a cross-reference to Twitter, are all correct, Richard BLAIS is my new best friend (check the comments)! If you don’t know about the BLAIS, he’s the super intense, vertical-haired winner of Top […]

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 6 Recap

April 17, 2012 Top Chef Canada

This recap is going to be a little light on food details, because I was rolling out sugar cookies for a baking project as the second half of the episode aired. I also contemplated giving up these recaps because I feel like no one is watching, as evidenced by the lack of Final 5 picks […]

Top Chef Canada Season 2: Episode 5 Recap

April 10, 2012 Top Chef Canada

Lisa Ray was a hot topic around our Easter dinner table this weekend.  My family has some strong opinions about her non-Padma-ness, but the consensus was that she’s just trying way too hard. I mean, some of it isn’t her problem though. Someone’s writing these horrible puns she has to say at the end of […]

Here we go with Episode 4 you guys! There’s only two girls left after Sarah’s elimination last week, and Trista and Elizabeth both feel the pressure (very similar to Connie and Andrea last season after Rebekah’s early exit). David is upset he was on the bottom last week, and hasn’t been cooking up to his […]
