Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food 

"This season, things move fast. No quick fire — just the elimination round, says Tom Colicchio as he and Padma Lakshmi toss beads to the cheftestants. The beads represent the proteins that each chef will use for their elimination dish. And, being it's New Orleans, the proteins represent Louisiana's finest residents — frog, alligator, turtle, and drunk frat boy tourist. OK — no one's really cooking a drunk tourist — but wouldn't that be awesome?"

Laine Doss of Miami New Times, reviewing Top Chef: New Orleans, which premiered on Bravo Oct. 2.
