top clinton hill chef

i was on the other day, feeding the gaping hole left in my life by the fact that there was no new episode of project runway last week, when i saw that the page for the new season of top chef was up, so i jumped over and started perusing the contestants. and one of them looked familiar:

i clicked on her, and, lo and behold, she's from brooklyn.... i racked my brain and it finally came to me: she used to be the chef at maggie brown's! she is also a former professional football player. you can read her full bio here.

i'm hoping that once the new season of t.c. starts, bravo will give us a way to contact the contestants and i can try to get an interview....
