Top Chef: Texas

Who doesn't love a little Tom Colicchio?
Top Chef continues to be one of my favorite shows on television. Season nine features the most chef-testants in the series history, with 29 culinary experts competing for a spot out in a group of 16 to make their culinary journey through the Lonestar state.
A couple of weeks ago, I was sent a Top Chef essentials kit via Klout because they deem me “influential” about food. What’s Klout, you ask? Klout measures influence online. “Our friendships and professional connections have moved online, making influence measurable for the first time in history. When you recommend, share, and create content you impact others.” (via If you’re signed up for Klout, you become eligible for Perks based on various factors—what you’re influential about, where you live, etc. Pretty cool, huh?
My Top Chef essentials kit arrived in a big, orange box. How fun! Upon opening it, I found the How to Cook Like a Top Chef cookbook, a pair of orange and silver tongs, a free trial for Top Chef University and a coupon for a Healthy Choice frozen meal. In preparation for the Top Chef: Texas premier, I took a look at the cookbook last night and it’s so fun if you’re a Top Chef fan like I am! It has some of the recipes that have won various challenges, a look inside the person lives of the contestants and fun tips and tricks for when you’re in the kitchen. With Christmas coming up, it would be a great gift for the foodie in your life.

I’m looking forward to tuning into tonight’s show. Will you be watching?
