Nathan Myhrvold on Top Chef Tonight!

MCJanuary 4, 2012

Tonight’s episode of Top Chef will feature Modernist Cuisine author Nathan Myhrvold as a guest judge. What will they make for him? We can’t say (though the videos above are a pretty good tease!); you’ll have to tune in to find out! It’s a pretty safe bet that it will feature barbecue, one of Nathan’s passions, and probably won’t be quite as strange as the foods Nathan told Padma Lakshmi about the last time they met at the New York Academy of Science’s “Science and the City” program.

The episode will run 75 minutes and airs at 10 PM (9 Central) on Bravo.

  1. A few comments on your final judging commentary

    1) as far as chicken goes, you can still get a crispy skin on chicken when you grill it but it depends on the type of sauce you’re using. A thinner sauce added throughout a grill can get a good crispy skin with sauce.

    2) NEVER AGAIN SAY THAT IT IS WRONG TO BOIL RIBS. You do shame to insult many types of Carolina BBQers.
    Parboiling ribs in vinegar is a MUST in some BBQ areas.
