More Top Chef News: Casey and Tre Do Dallas

2781_1131060604692_1472567709_30309582_119043_nSo, the Top Chef tour came to Dallas yesterday at the West Village starring TC faves and hometown celebs Casey Thompson and Tre Wilcox. I’ll be honest: It was kind of boring. Granted, you have to be highly entertaining to make a cooking demo exciting. And both chefs were working on very little sleep. (Due to storms, they had spent 15 hours stuck in a Houston airport.) But come on. This is Top Chef. My favorite show. I want sizzle. I want pizzazz. I want crying, bitchslaps, and someone threatening to shave someone’s head. What did I get? The following: 1) Casey makes a mean cuttlefish tossed in mint and pea shoots served with blanched English peas and burrata. 2) You can find cuttlefish (which is like a creamy calamari, according to Ms. Thompson) at Thai Oriental Food Store off of Lower Greenville. 3) Casey is a self proclaimed “fireball.” 4) Casey knows how to charm a crowd. Tre needs to speak up. His low voice is hard to hear. 5) Top Chef now sells t-shirts that quote chef Andrew from Top Chef Chicago: “I Have a Culinary Boner.” Charming.
