padmawut.jpgThis is just a good sublime moment that Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi had while in New Orleans: "I had a very high room. I was on the 24th floor of the Hyatt... And the sun was setting, and I had a bottle of hot sauce in one hand, and I was hiding behind my pillow some caramels that I got from Leah Chase's niece at Dooky Chase's. I was eating some leftovers from John Besh's restaurant while I was reading "Petite Rouge Riding Hood" in a Cajun accent to my daughter. And I thought, this is what New Orleans is about. It's about a beautiful sunset, children and family, hot and sweet." [TImes-Pic]
