Apologies for the shameless self-promotion (yet if not here, where?) but I am very excited to be chatting with this season’s Top Chef contestants as they pack their knives and go. If you’re a Top Chef fan like me, please check out my exit interviews on the Washingtonian’s Best Bites blog. Each Friday, we’ll grill a newly axed chef-contestant on behind-the-scenes gossip like why the h*ll they didn’t taste their food. After all, as the old adage goes, if you can’t take the heat, stay out of reality TV.
