Top Chef Texas, Week 8: Crack Kills
Finally! We are in Austin. Except me. I’m not in Austin. I’m in Arizona, where the new episode airs at 11pm, which is bananas. I blame Joe Arpaio.

Top Chef Texas, Week 7: What's Your Damage, Heather?
Still in Dallas. Feh. But you know what? This is the episode in which one of the remaining twelve contestants reveals herself to be just as unlikable as that glossy city to the north. So, fitting.

Top Chef Texas, Week 6: Who Shot JR?
Previously: the horror of the Highland Park dinner, but also Heather hating on Bev (Chekhov's side eye?), and the male cheftestants (mostly Ed) bitching about how Chuy's elimination reduced the number of men in the competition. (Side note: I know this is TOTALLY UNREASONABLE of me, but I was really disappointed to see Paul Qui smoking in this scene.)

Top Chef Texas, Week 5: Trophy Wives Make Easy Targets
Yeah, so there was no recap last week. Sorry about that. Thanksgiving and, you know, all of that. But how cool is it that Mr. Paul Qui won $20,000 in the Quickfire with his coconut curry with a ghost chili in? (Here's a quickie recap: chili cookoff. Random exclamation of, "Nobody take my breast milk!" Chuy is the Most Interesting Man In the World. Weeping.)

Top Chef Texas, Week 3: The Bus Arrives
I was already a generous tumbler of very good cabernet sauvignon when my friends arrived last night bearing coquito, tiny treats from Cutie Pies, and more wine for a Top Chef-watching party at my house. Another generous tumbler and I was en fuego with the snark, baby!

Top Chef Texas, Week 2: Shoot-Out at the Dimly Lit Corral
So, I defended my dissertation on Wednesday and then drank a bunch of cocktails, so my recollection of this week's episode might be a bit hazy. Thank goodness for the magic of DVR.
