Another Top Chef Copycat

Frodnesor | Jul 15, 200806:45 AM     26

Just saw this little story about Richard Blais (from Top Chef Season 4) doing a demo of "his fiendish creation" - popcorn balls frozen in liquid nitrogen.

Top Chef Combines Popcorn, Popsicles, and Liquid Nitrogen

Pretty much the exact same dish has been done for some time at Jose Andres' minibar in Washington DC where it's called "Dragon's Breath Popcorn", a ball of crushed and reformed popcorn which you eat and then blow smoke (from the liquid nitrogen) out your nose and mouth - just like in the picture of Blais!

I just had the dish at minibar last week

Now, *maybe* minibar's dish is copying one created by Blais, but for some reason I'm dubious. What's the deal with the Top Chefs cribbing others' creations?
