Well, tonight was it. The Big Finale. Richard, Stephanie and Lisa duke it out for first place and the title of Top Chef (along with $100,000). I have to admit, I've been rooting for Stephanie from the beginning, she's been consistent, talented, and very decent to those working around her. I've enjoyed Richard, with his quirky take on cooking techniques and sense of humor. Lisa's defensiveness, negativity, and tendency to stab others in the back have made me a bit ticked that she made it to the final three.
So who won?
It was a nice end to a long hard day. Sometimes the nice, talented, hard-working, caring ones win. How very very lovely.
