What, like you thought the host of "Top Chef"
was gonna haul his cookies cross-country in a Kia? Porsche handed Tom Colicchio
the keys to a brand new Panamera 4S -- into which he promptly stuffed his assistant Liz and Craft's executive chef Damon Wise. The trio set off on a 1,200-mile, six day food odyssey stretching from Atlanta to Columbia, Charleston, Chapel Hill, the Chesapeake, Washington D.C., rural Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and back home to New York.
Said Colicchio in the inaugural post of his six-day stint on Food & Wine's 'Mouthing Off
' blog, "It was about paying visits to some of the food producers who make my restaurants what they are, and discovering new ones the old-fashioned way. On this trip, the stops were the destination."
Yo, Tom? Next time, we call shotgun. The ham
is welcome to sit on our lap.
