Top Chef 3: Assignment Miami Beach

According to the Miami Herald, Top Chef Season 3 is headed to Miami. Being that I lived there for about 17 years, I couldn’t be happier. Here’s what the Herald had to say…

Don’t be surprised if you see young people in white jackets running down Lincoln Road with sauté pans and white truffle oil.

Top Chef, Bravo’s hit culinary competition, will film its third season in the Miami area this spring, the cable network has confirmed.

The show is famous for on-location cooking challenges: Past seasons saw contestants prepare street-cart food in San Francisco and a surfer’s breakfast on the beaches of Malibu. The Wednesday night show pits 15 chefs against each other for a cash prize and the publicity the title of Top Chef brings.

An item in a Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau report says the hour-long show will film 13 of its 15 episodes in Miami starting this month.

Expensive Cheap Wine Glasses

Wine Cup

If you still drink alcohol out of plastic cups, but are looking to step up your classiness a bit, check out this wine glass-cup hybrid. As seen on yumsugar, they’re called “sommelier” and are handblown in the Czech Republic by Maxim Velcovsky for Qubus Design Studio. A single glass will cost £25 (about $50).

A bit pricey, so unless you’re in the Forbes top 100, I’d skip buying these to play beer pong with.

Colorful Creative Colander


The coolest colander ever. It can be used as both a colander and a serving dish, and looks like a sleek modern chair. Made of bright yellow-glazed ceramic, and is dishwasher safe. Just tilt to one side for the colander, the other for the bowl. This’ll look great on any kitchen countertop.
