Omnivore - 'Top Chef' Las Vegas, Episode Eight: The other white meat

Three cheers for the other white meat!

Three cheers for the other white meat!

Kevin's love of pork took center stage last night (narrowly beating out Padma's knee-high white boots) as the remaining cheftestants paired pig with pinot noir for guest judge Charlie Palmer. In fact, Kevin's downright jolly reaction to the challenge (“I have a pig tattooed on me, that's how close this is to my heart”) and his subsequent win was more exciting than the dish he won it with, a pleasantly uncomplicated pork leg pate with pork fat mayo and a hint of chestnut. Even if Kevin doesn't pull off a “Top Chef” win, after braised pork barbecue and bacon jam and all kinds of pork fat, he's certainly the king of pig.
