On Celebrity’s ‘top Chef’ Cruise, Food And Fun Are On The Menu

Celebrity Ambassador for Pantene Eva Mendes Receives “Mujer Vanidades” Award at Vanidades Icons of Style in New York City

Go! Thats what youre here for! I demur again. She insists again. Look, no one back home will believe you if you dont have a picture! Fearing that her pushing might get physical, I tell her that Im on this cruise as a journalist, that Ive met Blais a few times and that Im more interested in hearing why shes here than in acting on any fanboy tendencies of my own. Finally, she relents. But Roses vehemence makes it clear how intensely she feels about Blais and the show. And its reactions like hers that explain why Top Chef: The Cruise drew a sold-out crowd for its voyage from Miami to Cozumel and back in the spring. Rose and her fellow fans jumped at the chance to get up close and personal with some of their favorite reality-show stars or at least as up close and personal as you can get when 2,000 people are trying to do the same thing. It makes a lot of sense: Cruise ships are fishbowls anyway, floating hotels that devotees love and critics hate for some of the same reasons. (Pro: You dont have to leave the boat! Con: You cant leave the boat!) So you may as well bide your time with others who share at least one of your interests.

Julianne Hough & Ryan Seacrest Say it ain’t so! When Seacrest and Hough announced their split, shock echoed around the world. The pair, who began dating in 2010, called it quits in spring of 2013 … and it was unexpected. Michelle Williams & Jason Segel Although their romance was short-lived, when Williams and Segel announced their split in Feb. 2013, it was a sad, sad time for a lot of fans. Why, you may ask? Well, just look at them together! Taylor Swift & Harry Styles Although they didn’t date for long, every Swift breakup is a big one — especially when she’s dating a One Direction star. Swift and Styles called it quits in early 2013 … and it shocked Directioners and Swift’s cat Meredith.

Favorite dish to prepare: Grilled cheese Email | Twitter | LinkedIn Grab a knife and a fork and chow down on my cover story in Fridayas weekly print and digital edition of the Austin Business Journal about our cityas growing coterie of celebrity chefs . It was a sublime assignment to interview the likes of Tyson Cole , Paul Qui , Shawn Cirkiel , David Bull and father-son chefs Jack and Bryce Gilmore . They each own their own Austin restaurants, all with a different aim and ambiance. Several of our picks for celebrity chefs have honed their public personas on The Food Network , Bravo and in the New York Times. Some have sharpened their savory chops in overseas restaurants and in heady gourmet markets like San Francisco and New York. But their hearts remain in Austin, where they are cooking up a storm of rave reviews. Click on the image at right and enjoy the snack-sized slideshow of the chefs featured in aCelebrities who sizzle,a and find out what their favorite dish is to prepare. Bon appetit! In this weekas article exclusively for subscribers , youall catch a glimpse of what whets the chefs’ appetites. It’s not the money or the glamor. They often work seven days a week, beginning early in the morning foraging for the freshest ingredients and wrapping up late in the evening after the revelers have sipped their final digestif. Most have families, who matter a whole lot, so there isnat a lot of time for traipsing the red carpet or even savoring their own creations. Margins are thin, so itas not a field for reaping a ton of money, unless youare Bobby Flay or Mario Batali . Given the high rate of failure in the restaurant business, the financial risks can be super-sized.
