8 life lessons Ami learned from Gordon Ramsay. Read More »

I’ve never really had any desire to go on a cruise until I heard there would be one with HOT CHEFS ON BOARD. Bravo’s “Top Chef” has announced a five-day voyage, which will set sail in April of 2013. Best part: Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons will be hosting along with some other favorite “Top Chef” and “Top Chef Masters” contestants from past seasons including — I’m only mentioning the boys — Hubert Keller, Tim Love, Michael Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, Hosea Rosenberg and Angelo Sosa (who actually kind of frightens me). No mention of the Voltagggio brothers YET. But they are besties with Mike Isabella so maybe? Guests will eat their way from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico while participating in fun activities like mock “Quickfire” challenges. Um, yes please. Tickets are on sale now for a $699 per foodie fan. I need it. [Hollywood Reporter]

“Top Chef” Texas contestant Ty-Lör Boring (is that his real name?) is anything but boring, especially when sprawled out buck naked on a kitchen table.  I’ve  had a peek at his sausage and let me tell you, I am suddenly craving Italian food. Is he Italian? He must be with all that hair. Anyhow, this is just one of the racy photos of Ty-Lör from his nudey spread in Headmaster magazine, an art magazine for man-lovers. What a wonderful name for a magazine If only he didn’t like to eat sausages, he might be my dream man. I’ll always be a sucker for a hot chef. They like to cook, I  like to watch them cook. They like to make me food, I like to eat it. It’s perfect! Just find me a man who feeds me and I’ll be happy in life. I’ll even do the dishes. Until then, I’ll continue to watch cooking shows and admire from afar. Click through to see more cooks I wouldn’t kick out of my kitchen … or my bed. Bon appetit! [Best Week Ever]

Girl Talk: Sex With A “Top Chef”

At the end of last year, I was in Los Angeles for a TV appearance that required me to be dressed up and in full makeup. That ended in the early afternoon, and I walked around downtown all glammed up, excited to have the rest of the day free. A guy complimented me, and I started talking, then flirting with him. He was cute and seemed smart, and I felt like I was already very far from my daily New York life, so I flirted back. And because it was 2010, that flirting soon took to our phones as we traded numbers, and then I started following him on Twitter, and he did the same to me. Keep reading »

Drool-Worthy: Hot Dudes Surfing And Eating Fish Tacos


The latest video from hot foodie blog Immaculate Infatuation — run by the infinitely edible Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang — combines three of my favorite things: hot dudes (in the form of “Top Chef” alum Sam Talbot), surfing (instructed by famed pro surfer Donavon Frankenreiter), and fish tacos (served up at Talbot’s Long Island restaurant, Surf Lodge). I cannot decide what I want to do first — order fish tacos, book my next surf trip, or rewatch old episodes from Sam’s season of “Top Chef.” Decisions, decisions.

Quotable: Padmi Lakshmi Has Eaten A Lot Of Testicles

“We eat all kinds of funky things on the show, and [my baby] ate everything that I ate, through my breast milk.

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of December 7th 2009

The holiday season is never the best in terms of television and, really, what other terms would we be talking about here? There are far too many reruns and new episodes tend to be Christmas-themed, which is just annoying. Not to mention the commercials that suggest you buy your loved ones cars as gifts? Really, who does that? But have no fear, there is some great TV coming up this week, from the season finale of “Top Chef” to the second episode of our new fave “Jersey Shore” — [Which I will be liveblogging in between doing shots of Jagermeister. Kidding! About the Jager. -- Editor] — to Barbara Walters sitting down with the 10 most fascinating folks of the year. Check out previews after the jump. Keep reading »
