As many of you know, the season premiere of “Top Chef All-Stars” airs this Wednesday on Bravo TV, and I’m champing at the bit. Not only because I’ve followed every season so far and I’m pumped to see so many familiar and talented chefs return, but also because I’m taking over the role of Top Chef re-capper here at Food and More.
Though the future Mrs. Watson indulges me on many of my food related pre-occupations, after a few years of making her watch TC with me every week we decided to make it interesting.
I mean, why just watch TV when you can also gamble on it, right?
Thus, Fantasy Top Chef was born. At the beginning of the season, each player drafts a team of cheftestants and every week your players earn points according to how they perform. All that is left to do after that is to set your wager. Both seasons that we have played, the loser owed the winner a nice dinner out.
