Foodspotting: It's a Thai!

A tie between Saipin Chutima of Lotus of Siam (Las Vegas) and Tyson Cole of Uchi (Austin) for "Best Chef: Southwest", that is. We asked the chefs what foods they'll be celebrating with. Smiley Saipin spoke through her translator and said she doesn't know because she's so excited, beaming the entire time. Chef Cole said he was craving chocolate. So, does he like dessert? "Only if it's chocolate," he said seriously. Only champagne in the Mercedes-Benz Victory Lane room, unfortunately... - Amy * Chaiyo is an expression of gladness in Thai. We just learned that. You're welcome.
