Hubert Keller Wins First Top Chef Masters Episode with Dorm-Room Mac and Cheese

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 10:45 AM

On last night's premiere of Top Chef Masters, Hubert Keller, executive chef/owner of Fleur de Lys (777 Sutter at Taylor) charmed a gaggle of Girl Scouts and a mess of college students and whipped up the winning meal: Cold Scottish salmon, hardy carrot and petit pea soup with cinnamon croutons, and creamy mac and cheese with prawns, mushrooms, and fresh herbs (recipes are here). His victory scored $10,000 for the Bay Area chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Keller will compete against the winners of the next five episodes of the new series for the grand prize of $100,000, which he would donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. There are three other Northern California chefs in the Top Chef Masters competition as well: Elizabeth Falkner of Orson, Cindy Pawlcyn of Mustards Grill in Napa, and Michael Chiarello of Bottega Restaurant in Yountville. The program airs at 10 p.m. Wednesdays on Bravo.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
