Early observations of Awards: Sam Mason is the tallest in the chef lineup and definitely the most handsome. Daniel Boulud ran into the show at the last minute, and Tom Colicchio dashed in with his beautiful wife at last minute, too!

Shut Up, Foodies: Lidia and Wolfgang Puck are on the Stage

Lidia is my most favorite TV chef right now, after Bourdain. I'm only qualified to critique her outfit but I would certainly eat anything she made. I mean, we may be Shut Up, Foodies, but I'd never tell Lady Lidia to shut up. She looks fabulous by the way. Wolfgang looks...well, like a debonair classical musician. Take from that what you will. -Meatball
