I'm no TV recapper and I'm certainly not going to start now (especially since the Top Chef Masters episode in question aired nearly a full week ago). But what? A surprise marriage proposal meal (for a woman whose favorite foods are salad and pretzels and has never shellfish? At last that's what I think she said–I wasn't really paying attention because I was imagining all the places a diamond ring could be stashed) They could’ve at least made up for subecting viewers, i.e. me to such pap by going full-on cheese and HIDING THE RING IN THE FOOD. Has everyone become tasteful all of a sudden? Even IHOP let me down. Oh, and she said, yes, by the way.
