Re:Celebrity Chef Smackdown
There's a consensus?
Unless there are a bunch of posts which I wasn't privy to, I saw at least three different names mentioned, all of which got more than one nod.
As I read the quote, my thoughts went to Steingarten, based on his numerous rude, pompous, and confrontational appearances on Iron Chef. But the various arguments against it being him have cast doubts.
The only person I'm sure he's not referring to is Michael Stern. Beyond that, it sounds like a bunch of over privileged, upper class twits (although I like and respect Bourdain) having a public slap fight.
