The latest cheftestant eliminated from Top Chef 3, Micah Edelstein, takes Meredith Arthur on a tour of her culinary, personal, and familial development. Along the way, she discusses a difficult upbringing and why running away can be cathartic. When the conversation turns to the show, she reveals that she’s made meatloaf before, that Hung and Marcel (from last season) know each other and are friends, and that she didn’t ever really want to be the Top Chef.
