Over the course of her four episodes of Top Chef 3, Camille Becerra seemed to appear more often in her bikini than in her chef whites. Maybe that’s why her pineapple upside-down cake was deemed a failure: You can’t cook it in a hot tub. In this podcast with CHOW’s Meredith Arthur, Becerra discusses her incipient publishing empire—a cookbook, a novel, and “tons of lyrics.” We’re glad she has something to fall back on.

(And Anthony Kiedis, if you’re listening: She thinks you’re hot.)
