OK OK, so Top Chef Masters ended last night and there's a lot of talk about "what should have" and "what could have."  The finale was exciting and more importantly, it was mouth-watering.  Hubert Keller and his Michelin star were delightful, Michael Chiarello and his panache were amazing - but personally, I think Rick Bayless was the most deserving, and will appreciate his title of Top Chef Master the most. 

Rick was the most humble contestant, and I think he elevated the Mexican cuisine to a level that it isn't well known for, haute.  If I were to go without Mexican food for too long, I may have to draw and quarter myself.  Most recently...
