Any one else Considering Cancelling their Ludo Bites Reservation?

...after seeing his behavior (and quite frankly his cooking) on Top Chef Master's last night?

I am on the fence.

      LOL now I really can't wait to watch!! I have it on Tivo for tonight.....

    2. Uh... what? Why?

      I used to work for him, and that's just how he is. He hasn't changed his attitude nor the way he cooks since the time you made your reservation and the TCM episode aired.

      And if the foie gras croque monsieur is served the night of your reservation... you have to go.

      1. Yes he was obnoxious last night on TCM, and he really did not "get" pub food in his ego exercise. So happy to see Jonathan Waxman win.

        In terms of Ludo, I wouldn't be quick to dismiss him based on his performance last night, seems he has a reputation for turning out well received food, but I just wouldn't suffer his ego.

          you don't have dinner with him @ his place. he just makes you the food.

            Ludo doesn't seem very bright, but he's probably good at what he normally does.

          2. What a horrible, horrible little man. I was wincing along with all the other chefs every time he opened his obnoxious mouth.

            1. I tend to believe that what we see on television isn't necessarily truth. Call me crazy, but "reality" television is only as real as the producers allow it to be.

                Yes there is some truth to that, but after watching many many reality programs -- and Top Chef episodes -- you can get a sense when the producers are misrepresenting someone or when a person is just way off base -- and I think the latter is true in Ludo's case last night.
