Toby Young Is Getting Old
With each Top Chef week, we miss Gail more. Is it just us, or are Toby Young's metaphors and jokes nonsensical and contrived? A few favorite examples from last night's show after the jump.
"Here it just tastes like the dull fish I remember eating when I've gone to Caribbean. Here it tastes like some wonderful new discovery."
"I think Tom's being too kind. It's not merely unremarkable. It's remarkably poor."
"It had a certain swagger to it. If I had to come up with a name for the dish, I think I'd call it Pablo Escolar."
"I just had this lump of rather dull fish on my plate. It's actually still stuck in my teeth. I wish it wasn't."
"There was one rogue element in the sauce...it just had the effect of rendering the whole dish completely toxic."
