Top Chef Masters…my vote

We were lucky enough to have Bravo TV’s new show Top Chef Masters’ contestant John Besh as a guest recently on Paula’s Best Dishes.  Ladies…John Besh is DREAMY.  Gentlemen…John’s wife is equally delicious!  We had such a fun time with them and they were both so gracious.  Not every guest appreciates the humor of this crew, star and me…the unflappable and “colorful” head food stylist.  I filled them in on the gossip of this wonderful town we live in, and they compared it to the gossip of their town…New Orleans.   All sounded deliciously the same!!! Loves!   Chef Besh made an amazing and simple dish that we all devoured.  Busters and Grits.  Which translates to fried softshell crabs with mascarpone grits and a rich crab pan sauce.  I have to give my wonderful food stylist Lynne Calamia her big props for rocking out one kick ass crab stock for the sauce and putting the remaining stock in a jar labled for me!  J’adore Lynne.  I can’t speak for everyone on the set of PBD, but my vote goes to Chef John Besh for Top Chef Master!
