Tonight's Top Chef Masters preview: Cheesy good

  • Hugh: "Twelve minutes — it takes me that long to shave." Um, Hugh, I think you missed a spot right between your eyes.

  • Naomi talks about "cutting the cheese" in the first preview video. (Insert immature joke here.)

  • Hugh: "I could feed my family off one plate for about a week." What are you feeding your family, Hugh? Tic-tacs?!

Check out the preview videos below.

Twelve Minutes for Five Thousand Dollars

Struggling With Calories


On tonight's episode of Top Chef Masters:

Hooray, it's yet another plug for a fellow NBC-Universal show on Top Chef! For the Elimination Challenge, each team of three has to produce a day's worth of meals that add up to 1500 calories or less for the judges from The Biggest Loser. The biggest challenge for the chefs: learning that butter and lard don't have to go in everything they cook.
