‘Top Chef’ Judge Doesn’t Eat Fancy

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – After cooking up fancy dishes all day long, Top Chef head honcho Tom Colicchio just wants to eat junk food.

Colicchio – a renowned chef and restaurateur – says it’s a common myth that chefs eat elaborate, world-class meals all the time.

In fact, his favorite foods to eat at home are simple treats like burgers, pasta, and good old-fashioned dry cereal for breakfast.

He also cooks up a mean scrambled egg, which takes him all of one minute to prepare and is a favorite of Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

Colicchio says most chefs “crave junk food” when they’re not working because they’ve been sampling elaborate, exotic dishes all day.

He believes every chef likes to take a break from the fancy fare in their personal lives and keep things simple in their home kitchen.
