Week 7 of Bravo's Top Chef Duels had a law enforcement theme with some of the Popo from Brooklyn Nine Nine sitting in as guest judges. For the final challenge, Jen Carroll and Nyesha Arrington had to create a three-course meal that included a "Culinary Crime," a "Steak" out and a doughnut for dessert. It was a hotly contested race, but Nyesha's tuna with blue cheese caused the judges to find her guilty of a creating a dish with questionable flavor profiles. So, Jen escaped with the win.
Nyesah went on to face Tiffani Fiason in The Knockout. The challenge was to take trend-worthy ingredients and showcase them in a dish. Tiffani pulled out her second win even though she was allergic to her primary ingredient.
There will be blood — and it's likely to end up in a recipe. Top Chef Season 2 winner Ilan Hall is the host and judge of Esquire Network's Knife Fight (Tuesdays, 10/9c), a food competition show on steroids where renowned chef s must out-cook one another using an array of mystery ingredients, ranging from the quirky (sea cucumbers, nasturtiums) to the epic (one-quarter cow) to the downright disturbing (cold pig's blood). Welcome to...

Two more chefs go head-to-head in the kitchen and have to cook for a bunch of hungry cops — or at least actors who play them on television. On Wednesday's all new episode of “Top Chef Duels,” the cast of Fox's “Brooklyn Nine Nine” is invited to the dining room table while Jen Carroll and Nyesha Arrington battle it out in the kitchen. See video: ‘Top Chef Duels’ Throws a ‘Bizarre’ Twist at the Contenders In TheWrap's exclusive clip, Carroll rushes around searing 30-day dry-aged ribeye steaks, surrounding them with bold flavors like smoked potatoes and kimchi rhubarb ketchup. Meanwhile, out in the dining. »

Forget bloggers’ end-of-year top 10 roundups and magazines’ editorial lists, Bravo wants to take foodies behind the scenes of how the sausage is made, so to speak, when determining what will become America’s “Best New Restaurant.”
The series, hosted by “Top Chef” judge Tom Colicchio and produced by restaurateur and TV personality Gordon Ramsay’s production company One Potato Two Potato, is modeled after the U.K. program “Ramsay’s Best Restaurant.” It premieres in January and follows 16 restaurant staffs through a series of challenges that will judge their space’s decor, hospitality, overall concept and, of course, food. Similar to “Top Chef,” which partners with Food & Wine magazine, the crowning restaurant will receive an editorial feature in Bon Appetit and a featured spot at 2015’s Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit food festival.
This year’s competing restaurants are:

Week 6 of Top Chef Duels was not for those with sensitive stomachs. How does one really challenge two culinary powerhouses like David Burke and Takashi Yagihashi? By bringing in guest judge Andrew Zimmerman, a man known for eating the weirdest concocted food in the furthest corners of the world. He brought along some special ingredients for Yagihashi and Burke to incorporate into their dishes.
Burke and Yagihashi were tasked with creating entrees using rare and/or unappetizing foodstuffs. In my opinion, the worst of the lot had to be the armadillo. Not much trumps roadkill. Even though Yagihashi swept all three challenges, it was still close. Burke's ultimate downfall was camouflaging the flavors of Zimmerman's ingredients as opposed to showcasing them.
On Wednesday's new episode of Bravo's “Top Chef Duels,” two masters go head-to-head and the challenges are appropriately tough. Former “Top Chef Masters” competitors and long-time friends, David Burke and Takashi Yagihashi, take the duel to a whole new level. In the first 30 minute rounds in which the chefs create the challenges, Yagihashi chooses an ingredient that is deceptively tough, the egg.

But wait, it has to be prepared three ways. Then, the »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock. See below for the winners list in full and we’ve also put in the moving tribute from Billy Crystal for his friend, »

Everyone from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andre Braugher to “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner admitted that they were hooked on the Netflix comedy.
Star Uzo Aduba already won her category for Outstanding Guest Actress at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony last week, but told Variety that it only lessened some of the pressure she was feeling tonight, since the rest of the show’s nominations would be announced during the main show. “We are very much a team on our show — it’s still a slightly tense situation, but some of the breath has left my lungs,” she laughed. Aduba admitted that, aside from her castmates, she’s rooting for HBO’s “True Detective” and “The Normal Heart” to sweep their categories, »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Saturday, Aug. 23:
11:10 a.m. “Nashville’s” Rayna James is “a woman that we need to see in country music,” says honoree Callie Khouri at the Women Making History Event, presented by the National Women’s History Museum and Glamour Magazine, at the Skirball Center. (She also teases that the “Nashville” premiere is going to feature two live performances in the show.) She thinks it’s incredible to see more women directing TV and as showrunners. “Nashville” boasts a largely female writing staff and women in main storylines.

It was a star-studded evening to remember as the annual Variety and Women in Film pre-Emmy celebration powered by Samsung Galaxy honoring the television nominees was held Saturday night at Gracias Madre on Melrose Avenue.
Partygoers dined on delicious vegan Mexican food and sipped cocktails al fresco sponsored by Crystal Light, and arrived at the party in Mercedes Benz S65 Amg Coupes.
The patio at the hip Mexican eatery on Melrose Avenue was packed with the industry’s biggest names. Laura Prepon was one of the first to arrive. Lizzy Caplan was bombarded with well-wishers predicting her win Monday night. Julianna Margulies and her husband, Keith Lieberthal, chatted with Anne Heche and James Tupper. The cast of “Scandal” — including Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Darby Stanchfield, Jeff Perry, and newly minted Emmy winner Joe Morton — was thrilled to reunite with Dan Bucatinsky, and took several selfies to commemorate the moment. »
