3 Seattle Chefs on Top Chef Masters Season 2

I saw Bravo posted their list of cheftestants for TCM Season 2 and recognized several names. I didn't at first recognize Thierry as a Seattle chef. For some reason I was thinking the chef of Rover's was named Rover! Anyway, this is a good article:

Anybody have thoughts on how well our local chefs will do?

I was sad that Holly Smith lost so quickly on Iron Chef America and now I know i'll be disappointed if Jerry Traunfeld doesn't do well on TCM.

      I'm not from Seattle but I've eaten at Tilth the last two times I've visited - I know who I'll be rooting for this time!

    2. Jerry Traunfeld was chef of The Herbfarm, not "The Herb Garden."

      I miss journalism.

        Ha, didn't catch that. Maybe they've been downgraded since his departure!

      2. I love all their food and restaurants. I am not sure I want to find out if they are jerks as people or have bad kitchen habits or something.

        1. I wasn't surprised that Holly SMith lost so quickly.....

            Holly did not compete on Top Chef Masters. She appeared on The Next Iron Chef or whatever it was called. Why would you flame an outstanding chef without giving a reason?

          2. I would not have known about Seattle chefs on Top Chef if this thread was started in Food Media and News, rather than the local board. I have been wowing people in Seattle with my insider info!
