‘Top Chef’ Intel


Metromix chats up some former and current colleagues of the current Top Chef crop and gets Centro honcho George Elkins to give a scouting report on hometown favorite Leah Cohen: “She’s very even-tempered … She actually shows tremendous leadership. She doesn’t fly off the handle, but she’s very opinionated. She has the bar raised very high and she mentors some of the younger cooks, so she’s very tough. But she doesn’t lose her temper.” [Metromix]
