DJ Hubert Keller is on fire!

Here's an excerpt from Andrew Zimmern's recent blog, regarding Top Chef:
Top Chef Masters is the best food show on TV right now. What a great guilty pleasure, and if you had to handicap the game right now, lead would have to go to Anita Lo, who cooks with beauty and intelligence and, most importantly, is in sync with what Gael and Jay want to see on their plates. The dark horse is Bayless, and Keller could win the whole thing but the gimmickiness of some of the challenges don’t suit his style. If he can make it to the finals, where he would get to cook his own food, look out. I got 10 bucks that says Art goes home next week. His folksy act, a cross between Sebastian Cabot and Richard Simmons, is getting really tired. The list of losers on this show reads like a who’s who of great chefs, and I have e-mailed and spoken on the phone with many of them, all of whom have a lot more respect for the contestants on the generic version of the show than they ever thought possible. Tell me you are not psyched for the next season in a few weeks? Vegas Baby.
I haven't thought of Sebastian Cabot in years....

And finally, here's a piece on Fabio Viviani's cookbook, including a couple recipes.

I actually have some of Sebastian Cabot's attempts at music. Bob Dylan music. ... It's really more spoken word over music. And it's (unintentionally) damn funny (unlike Art Smith).
