Over the long holiday weekend, Jimmy Fallon hosted a few food-related guests on his late-night show. Up first, Top Chef hostess Padma Lakshmi continued her pregnancy promotion tour. Predictably, Pads' segment is a bit of a snoozefest, though they do discuss the upcoming Vegas finale and she does brag about how many books she reads (she's so learned!). However, a more entertaining bit can be had with Daniel Boulud's more energetic appearance this past Friday, which involved everything from Japanese hot springs to Emeril to setting things on fire.
Just a sampling of Fallon's commentary on Boulud: "America's most renowned chef"; "That's why you're brilliant"; "Do you ever cook anything not good?"; "This guy is the greatest!"; and "You're the best!" Guy's trying to get a table at Daniel.
