This just in:
Speaking of Top Chef, a story in this morning's New York Times reports that TC Head Honcho Tom Colicchio came to the rescue of cookbook author Joan Nathan in Washington Monday night.
Nathan, while hosting a charity dinner benefitting local soup kitchens, "slumped to the floor choking" in front of a crowd of guests. Alice Waters, who was among those who witnessed the incident, called out for help. And faster than you can ask Is there a chef in the house?, Colicchio rushed to the rescue. Our hero!
Nathan is now doing just fine.
