Recent circumstances (vacation in a Bravo-less locale, followed by a family emergency) have prevented us in the past few weeks from taking in our Wednesday evening Top Chef Masters episode.
Here's what you need to know:
Art Smith is out.
Anito Lo is out.
Rick Bayless -along with Hubert Keller and Michael Chiarello - are in.
And Dale Talde (past Top Chef cheftestant) appears to be a tool.
