Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of November, in honor of Thanksgiving — the best food holiday of the year — they are watching maligned films featuring food.
This week, they are joined by Top Chef All-Star Stephanie Cmar. They watch Simply Irresistible, the 1999 rom-com starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that has a magic crab and psychedelic desserts.
For Top Chef: All-Stars LA, the popular cooking competition brought back 15 chefs from previous seasons. With the season finale airing this Thursday, only three of them remain to compete for the top prize.
One of those three chefs is Stephanie Cmar, a New England native who was eliminated in the qualifying round of Season 10 (which her dear friend Kristen Kish won), then came back and finished seventh in Season 11. We interviewed Stephanie about her previous runs on the show, her decision to come back for All-Stars, her friendship with Kish and what the future holds.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
