Vegan MoFo Day 22: Natalie Portman on Top Chef

I almost didn't post today, because well... I haven't made anything recently. We went to the Airborne Toxic Event concert last night and went out to eat, and Andrew's birthday is coming up, like I said... so I'm a little disoriented.

BUT I was watching Top Chef tonight and found a reason other than my cooking to post. Natalie Portman is a part of the challenge for next week's episode! And that means, vegan!

I was so excited when Zooey Deschanel was on Top Chef Masters, but I was pretty unimpressed with their turn out. Someone just bought rice dream ice cream and topped it on some strawberry soup?

Anyway, this crop of chefs seems young and innovative, so hopefully they'll bring the heat. Although the preview had Natalie Portman talking about how disgusting something was... sooo, I'm not that hopeful.

i totally set the tivo to grab this. i'm always amazed when professional chefs have no idea what to do without their beloved animal products. i'm sure at least one will whine like a baby. so sad.

I am so excited too, I think I might have screamed when I saw Natalie Portman because I know it would be a vegan challenge and I have been waiting for that for YEARS.
