This weeks Top Chef certainly clarified that the casts brothers, Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, are more than just a slick casting call exploited by the show to infuse more drama. Of course, if they were gay, well, that would have been network gold, Im sure! Happily though, they are short on controversy and big on talent.
Our industry has some significant brother combinations. There are the Adria brothers, and the famed Troisgros family, even though the latter is more like a Jackson family phenomenon. And even as youre reading this Im sure youre noting many more from your own local scene. Here in the Southeast, the Rathbun brothers come to mind.
I started to think about who they collectively remind me of, and lo and behold, it was made clear on Sunday. The Voltaggio boys are seemingly on a course to become the Mannings of the Top Chef universe.
