Top Chef and Adjudged "Top Chef" Winner Dish It Out

Alas, possums, if you were hoping this post would be about a quasi-sexual fantasy involving Top Chef Harold Dieterle, adjudged Top Chef winner Ilan Hall, and the rattan chair and whip from Casino Royale, you will be sorely disappointed.

Instead, we wanted to note that the charming and no-nonsense Harold, whose new restaurant, Perilla, is slated to open very, very soon, was featured at the Food and Wine Best New Chefs Showcase. As per Bravo blogger and boy reporter extraordinaire Raggaydy Andy Cohen, other Top Chef alumni in attendance were Ilan Hall, Josie Malave-Smith, Sam Talbot, and Season One's Andrea Beaman and Miguel Morales. Our haughty, lynx-like, Canadian schoolmistress pinup Gail Simmons (when we're feeling a little lezzie, we have fantasies of Gail in a culinary remake of M├Ądchen in Uniform) also was present.

So what was on the menu? Ilan "Mutton Dressed as Lamb" Hall ("What about 'Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' or 'Shorn Sheep'?" asks Miss XaXa) served "a fantastic lamb medley and Harold made some rock shrimp and mushroom with some Marcelian foam." Alas, no word from Raggaydy Andy as to what "Knock-Off King" Ilan was wearing.

Despite being bet basketball asked to head home, 33-year-old Californian Preeti said she was thankful to Top Chef for the experience, and contrary to criticism courtesy of Gail, she doesn't really give a hoot on being inventive, sportsbook as she cares more about her customers' liking. On last night's episode of Top Chef: Las Vegas, the guest judge was Top Chef alum Mark Peel, who brought with him a mountain of potatoes for the quickfire challenge. The chef-testants had around 45 minutes to create an march madness "out-of-this-world" dish using potatoes, which, according to Ash, are boring. Poor potatoes. Later on, the potatoes had their revenge, but with Ashely. With minutes left, she discovered that she had no boiling water for her gnocchi.
