Rick Bayless Can Go "Screw Himself"
Dissing high-end Mexican food gets one chef the boot
In the latest episode of Top Chef, Erik Hopfinger has to serve high-end Mexican cooking to Rick Bayless, the king of high-end Mexican cooking. And Erik just isn't on board. Padma helpfully declares that Chicago is "a city made up of neighborhoods." In one of those neighborhoods, there is a block party, where Erik's soggy corn dogs (chefs: Lose the sog) are a bust, but as he explains to Meredith Arthur, he's happy to be set free and has some thoughts about what Andrew's on. Chowhounds have thoughts of their own.
