Cookbook giveaway: Hubert Keller's Souvenirs

I am doing another week's worth of cookbook giveaways. Today's offering is a chance to win "Hubert Keller's Souvenirs: Stories & Recipes From My Life." You may recognize Keller from appearances on Bravo's "Top Chef" and "Top Chef Masters."

He is a renowned classically-trained French chef who owns Fleur de Lys in San Francisco, Burger Bar in Las Vegas, San Francisco and St. Louis and a tapas restaurant called Fleur in Las Vegas.

And check back on the blog this week for more chances to win books by Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Kevin Gillespie.

A gentle reminder: Make sure the email you registered with newsobserver.com is still valid. I can't tell you how many times I've chosen a winner only to have the email notifying them of their prize bounce back. If I can't reach you, I have to pick another winner.

"Top Chef: Just Desserts" will make you drool

Bravo hopes to keep America drooling long after tonight's finale of "Top Chef: Washington, DC," launching a new spinoff that will send viewers to bed with Willy Wonka dreams of chocolate ganache, caramel buttercream, and raspberry coulis.

"Top Chef: Just Desserts" has the exact same premise as the regular "Top Chef" -- a group of hopefuls compete in quickfire and elimination challenges, are judged by a panel of accomplished foodies, and one is eliminated each week until a winner remains.

The glaring difference, judging by the first episode (at least in comparison to the most recent season of "Top Chef"), is that this particular group of chefs seem to skew significantly more insecure and slightly more, um, psycho than their arrogant counterparts.
