Awesome! I don't get Top Chef here in Norway (at least not the most resent ones) :) but I always enjoyed watching it so I am loving the fact that you are so detailed in your description. And, I must say this dish looks stunning, I love your plating.


What a beautiful plate! Very lovely!!!!


That looks delicious. I'm excited to see the posts for the rest of the season!


I'm not a turnip fan, but this has convinced me to give them another go.


that looks mighty tasty! I can't wait to see what you have in store for the rest of the season

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

As always, it looks beautiful! Looking forward to your season 6 posts!


I saw this episode, and this was a truly creative dish. So glad it won. What I didn't get was the chefs that didn't understand what a "vice" was. Just...weird! Glad to see that this was as tasty as I envisioned! I applaud you for taking on the Top Chef recipes...I've done one or two, but some that I find so intriguing are quite daunting once you read how many steps there are!


oh, i’m REALLY gonna enjoy your write-ups, teanna. first of all, zaftig is an awesome and terribly underused word, and although i thought it only applied to the ladies, i suppose it could work for ol’ kevin (who, incidentally, is one of my favorites due to his cool, quiet calm and obvious intellect). secondly, i have my doubts that anyone could top stephen in sound bites (and arrogance), but we’ll see! i, too am jealous of the barbie who has touched mr ripert. does she know how fortunate she is? it IS gonna be a great season!

WOW Teanna, that dish looks unbelievable. The fish looks so moist and delicious in the photo. You've got some mad skills in the kitchen! And thanks for the heads up about Top Chef actually posting recipes that home cooks can follow. I've had pretty disastrous results in the past trying to scale down their recipes. I might actually try this one day when I've saved up for all the ingredients :)
p.s. I share your feelings about the sexy Mr. Ripert (hubba hubba)

I was very impressed by this dish and super impressed by your recreation! Beautiful! I think this is going to be a great season as the chefs seem to be very good. I am of course rooting for Jennifer C. especially because we just ate at 10 Arts and loved it! Of course at that time we had no idea she was going to be on the show!


Nice. I was only able to catch half of it as I had an early appoint in the morning. Thanks.

This looks fantastic!! You always have the best recipes. I think, you have true talent.


This does look fantastic! I love the salsa verde especially!


wow, what an awesome looking dish. I stop watching Top Chef since Stefan didn't win the title he deserved. But that doesn't have anything to do with your great talent.

Elizabeth - Cake or Death?

Okay, superstar, you are amazing. I got exhausted just reading the steps in this recipe, so I give you mad props for actually making it (and enjoying the process!)

BUT we might have a problem, because Frenchy is my personal crush this season and I am planning on keeping him and his fetching neckscarf all to myself. You can have your pick of the other tatooed dudes!


I love this show. LOVE it, I tell ya! I adored Top Chef Masters, but this season is gearing up to be a good one ... I already have some front-runners in mind. Although, yes, I'm just as surprised that there aren't more NYC chefs ... wtf??!! The winning dish really is very inventive, and I'm enjoying the Top Chef journey u're taking us on!


I didn't realize a new season had started!! Thanks. I just went to find the first episode. And so I didn't read your post because I don't want spoilers... but the dish is gorgeous! Love the colours.


Your photo looks so much nicer than the one on the recipe link! The green pool of sauce looks wonderful.

It's so nice to have you do all of the research for us. It makes our decision making so much easier!! Thanks.
