Chef Tre Wilcox on Bravo’s Top Chef Christmas Special

6 Dec

Having a hard time going cold turkey between Top Chef seasons?  Get a mini fix of Top Chef tonight on Bravo at 8:00pm Central.  Former contestants, including Dallas favorite Chef Tre Wilcox of Abacus, will meet Santa and compete in a holiday smack down.  Will Santa be the ultimate judge for the competition?  Will we see some crazy spins on the classic cookies and milk? 

For the sake of Tre’s (and other contestants’) dignity, let’s hope this holiday special is less corny than the Food Network episode where the celebuchefs teach each other a favorite dish.  Anyone else catch the 15-minute segment where Sandra Lee “helps” Bobby Flay  with his lobster dish?  By “help,” I mean stand around wishing for a strong cocktail because that lady doesn’t cook.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot does “semi-homemade” mean anyway. And if I see one more TV chef admiring his/her own creations or asking rhetorically “doesn’t that look awesome?”, I will quit my jobs so that I can devote my full attention to making 2-way TV a reality, just so I can yell back at them, “Hell no, you pretend amateur hack, it looks like Alpha Sierra Sierra and probably tastes worse.” geez louise.

    Guttural, I’m going to your sushi bar soon to narrate all your sushi preparation steps.
    “My! Doesn’t that look yummo!”
    “Oh, it’s my fave!”

    Speaking of Chef Tre, both Frontburner and DMN have reported that he will be leaving Abacus at the beginning of the new year. Lots of rumours as to what he’s up to next, but most seem to agree that something on TV is on his plate.

    Oh no you didn’t just say “yummo”, LOL.
    Have you been hanging with Bill Addison again? Oh wait, he swore he’ll never use that term again, lest he be accused of stealing words from RRay. Oy way, the pervasiveness of the Food Network.

    Warning: saying “EVOO” in any of my restaurants will be justification for us to exercise that clause which says, “we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason”.
