‘Top Chef’ Host Praises Her Digestive Tract

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With the loads of food dished up on Top Chef, host Padma Lakshmi is thankful for one thing: Her digestive tract!

Lakshmi – a model-turned-foodie – has been hosting Top Chef for the past three seasons, and jokes that the secret to the success of the show lies in her amazing digestive system.

Lakshmi has tasted the good, bad, and interesting concoctions aspiring chefs create on the reality TV series, and says sometimes she can’t help but wonder “what the mystery meat is.”

The worst dish Lakshmi has ever tasted on Top Chef was a “chocolate ganache with a morsel of liver in it,” which left her with a bad taste in her mouth.

However, a short time later, the same chef that created the gross ganache whipped up Lakshmi’s favorite dish, which included chorizo and clams.

And although Lakshmi can get pretty full chowing down on Top Chef take after take, she never skips a meal.

She says, “I taste every single thing, including the food on the craft services table backstage that’s set up for the crew!”

Top Chef: Chicago premieres March 12 on Bravo.
