If You Could Only Pick 1 Top Chef Contestant (any season) to Cook You a Meal, It'd Be:

Kevin Gillespie for me.

    1. If Kevin and Carla had a love child, but then they were tragically killed, and then the love child had to be raised by his uncle, Richard Blais, THAT'S who I'd want to cook my meal!

              that's awsome, but Kevin Gillespie would have to be my pick..........But then there those Voltaggio brothers......and why are you making me pick

              1. re: jiminy

                Those would be my choices also. Anyone one of the 4 and I would be happy.

          1. Bryan Voltaggio - he didn't win but I thought of all the chefs who have been on Top Chef, he had the most consistently imaginative and refined food all season long.

                if the volt brothers had a love child and...

                oh wait uhm....

                    Why? :-)
                    It's theoretically possible but folks don't have the practical ability to make it happen yet with humans - but in the future... ;-) It's been sort-of done in mice...

                    Sick. Funny, but sick all the same.

                  1. re: ipsedixit

                    i was waiting for someone to go the Masters route. that's a choice i really couldn't make.

                    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                      that's a choice i really couldn't make.

                      Going the Masters route? Or choosing Lee?

                        too hard.

                        1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                          Actually, your answer suggests you meant "both" right?

                          Can't go the Masters route AND can't choose any of the Master cheftestants.

                          1. re: ipsedixit

                            can't go the Masters route *because* i can't choose just one...or even 2 or 3 :)

                          2. re: goodhealthgourmet

                            oh thats a easy choice for me. Bayless for sure!

                            oh... and susar could make a appetizer or something.

                            1. re: mattstolz

                              I'd go with Besh among the Masters. I think he should have won The Next Iron Chef over Symon based on food alone, but Symon's personality is PERFECT for iron Chef.
