And Now for a Moment of Levity: Coquilles St. Jacques the Ripert

Watching the height and positioning of guest judge Eric Ripert's hands as he relates the size of the scallops (coquilles St. Jacques) served at haute cuisine fish palace Le Bernardin, Padma Lakshmi puffs up in preparation for the moment when he will turn around as he says, "Zey are ZEES beeg," hoping that he might, during his demonstration, accidentally Ripert her shirt off.

Has anyone been able to figure out what that image is on Padma's shirt?

Have you seen this interview with Marcel from Friday, 1/18/07?

not relevant to this post exactly but i wonder how you read this quote from Ilan, about Marcel:
"he had to make this dish about lust and I told him that he's never lusted after a woman, all he does is go home and jerk off thinking about Joël Robuchon."

a touch of homophobia here, or is it me?

ilan is really starting to annoy me. i believe i read that same quote a week ago. during that interview, he continue to make excuses for his behavior. when i read that quote it sounded like he was proud. he really wanted the fans to know that he actually said that to marcel's face even though it didn't air. now, i'm not quite sure why you would be proud of that statement.
