When I was in Miami for the Miami Book Fair International, I had a chance to interview Miss Top Chef herself: Padma Lakshmi. Her new cookbook, TANGY TART HOT & SWEET was just pubbed and she’s been on tour promoting it like crazy. [Bravo also just finished shooting the next season of Top Chef in Chicago -- get ready. PS: It’s a three week shoot--no wonder they're all so exhausted by the end!]Because I know you want to know: Yes, she is that beautiful (even with the sniffles which she had during that weekend); yes, she is that cool and smart; and yes, the girl can cook!
