Respect Your Ingredients

Episode 8 of Top Chef was somewhat of a shocker. Lessons learned down on the farm, respect your ingredients (and proteins) and past performance means nothing. For these two reasons, Ariane was ousted after mangling her team’s lamb dish. Tom Colicchio presented his philosophy of cooking, stressing the respect chefs show their ingredients. Ariane, he […]

When the Booze is Gone, It’s Time to Move on, Gene

Those were Gene Villiatora’s parting words on Top Chef as the Hawaii-raised chef didn’t make it past Week 7.

Top Chef Gene is a Survivor

After reading about Top Chef contestant Gene Villiatora’s self-taught cooking skills, I figured he wouldn’t last long in the fierce competition. To excel in Top Chef, you need skill, creativity, and a solid foundation in cooking. Unlike most of the other competing chefs, Gene has no formal culinary training. Something that will surely hinder this […]

The New Face of Hawaiian Style Cooking

Props out to Eugene “Gene” Villiatora for representing Hawaii in Season 5 of Top Chef. Although born and raised in Hawaii, the self-taught Gene is doing his thing in Vegas, the home away from home for Hawaii residents.
