Remember the time Chef Tom Colicchio gave me props on Twitter?

Top Chef is back!!

Les bon temps roule! (You're going to be REALLY sick of this phrase soon.)

Season 11 is going to be in New Orleans (finally), one of the greatest food and culture cities in the world.

Yes. It’s right up there with Paris or NY or where ever the hell else you want to argue with me about. Go there for a week. Avoid Bourbon street and take the trolley up town through the Garden District. Put your name down at Jacque Imo’s and go wait at The Maple Leaf. When your table’s ready, order some gator cheesecake and a Godzilla. Oh yeah, you’re welcome.

Soft shell crab. Fried green tomatoes. Boudin.

“Godzilla” – Soft shell crab. Fried green tomatoes. Boudin.

There will be a full post about New Orleans before the season starts – call it an “amuse,” if you will. Until then feel free to catch up last season’s Top Chef in Seattle. I did a full season’s recap for the website FoodieGossip and I suggest you relive the excitement and the snark at my Top Chef Recap page. Because if it’s good enough for Tom Colicchio, it’s good enough for you. (Full disclosure, his tweet was directed at the FIRST episode’s recap, not the entire season. I’m being exact and specific because I know Tom would have wanted me to. As you know, he’s like that.)

Proud moment in Recap history...
How many recappers can boast a claim like this!!
