Top Chef Masters: One down

| No Comments


So ... didn't you just want to tickle Hubert Keller?

True, there were no childish spats, no F-bombs launched on last night's premiere of Top Chef Masters on Bravo. But what sets "Masters" apart from the original is just that -- a certain level of class, seeing as how these are world-class chefs and all. Doesn't mean the show (so far) doesn't lack drama and excitement. This is serious cooking at its core, albeit in sometimes ridiculous settings. We found the dorm room cooking challenge riveting (not to mention amusingly mind-blowing in its "Really? Really?" moments -- as with Keller's absolute ineptitude with that thing called a microwave).

Next week: Get ready for Graham Elliot Bowles.
