Omnivore - 'Top Chef' Las Vegas, Episode Ten: Whatever, Whatever

I guess one good turn, or challenge, deserves a repeat.

I guess one good turn, or challenge, deserves a repeat.

Last night's episode of "Top Chef" Las Vegas was a virtual vegetarian deja vu as the remaining cheftestants cooked up veggie entrees for quirky actress Natalie Portman, taking a cue from last summer's "Top Chef Masters" where the masters cooked a dinner for quirky vegan actress Zooey Deschanel. While the first incarnation was mostly interesting (Art Smith making vegan food with love, come on!), this time around the majority of the cheftestants served up plates of thrown together veggies and then freaked out about it. The most interesting thing about the meal, aside from Padma and Natalie's giggle-worthy double entendres, was Michael Voltaggio's banana polenta, and even that wasn't his original idea.
