Omnivore - 'Top Chef' D.C, Episode 11: Space... The Delicious Frontier

Tonight's Top Chef: DC was the last Washington-based episode before the semifinals abroad, and so the chefs cooked for the one remaining Washington agency that the show hadn't exploited yet: NASA.

Tonight’s Top Chef: D.C. was the last Washington-based episode before the semifinals abroad, so the chefs cooked for the one remaining Washington agency that the show hadn't exploited yet: NASA. (Does NASA even still exist? I thought NASA was historical, like the War Department or the Civilian Conservation Corps.)

Now, I’ve never been to outer space, but I’ve watched enough movies to know three iron-clad facts:

1. Space food is all freeze-dried and tastes like crunchy ice cream. You can’t use things that will float away in zero gravity like capers or drippy sauces.

2. Soylent Green is people.

3. Eat the blue pill, and you’ll wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe, but swallow the red pill, and Morpheus will show you just how deep this rabbit hole goes.
