SURE FIRE WAYS TO GET SENT HOME ON TOP CHEF

When my son was born (slash 9 months later when I was home for the summer and he napped 3 times a day), I binged on all 10 seasons of top chef in like one month. Here's what I learned.
  1. Make a god damned panna cotta.
  2. Cook scallops wrong
    You gotta get that sear, son!
  3. Be a slob in the kitchen
    Clean as you go!
  4. Under season things
    Taste as you go!
  5. Be the front of house during restaurant wars
    You get blamed for everything!
