Welcome to the wild, wild west.

In last night's edition of “Top Chef," the remaining cheftestants left the comforts (and air conditioning) of the M Resort kitchen for fire pits in the Nevada desert, cooking for a few dozen cowboys and camping out in teepees on a veritable dude ranch. The desert heat (after all, it was “nine trillion degrees”) made for some agitated chefs and overwhelmingly mediocre food, "some of the worst of the season". Although Atlanta based Eli's tough tuna sandwich and accompanying radish “salad,” which looked more like a pile of raw radishes, was certainly among the mediocre, his commentary got to the heart of the episode: presenting the chefs themselves.
