"Top Chef" host Tom Colicchio stopped by Heavy Seas Alehouse on Friday afternoon with his new fishing buddy, the actor Josh Charles. The news of Colicchio's visit was circulated on social media by Heavy Seas executive chef Matt Seeber, who was the executive chef at Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak in Las Vegas before coming to Baltimore. Colicchio and Charles came to Heavy Seas to continue filming an episode of " Hooked Up With Tom Colicchio ," a YouTube series in which the chef goes on fishing expeditions with celebrities like Perry Farrell and Andy Cohen.

I may have been a little too excited for the premiere of "Top Chef New Orleans. " I had a dream the night before that I was on the show and immediately thrown into a Quickfire Challenge. This was an issue because: 1) I am not a chef, barely a home cook - as evidenced by my dinner of toast and cereal last night; and 2) the challenge was to create a meal out of jellybeans. And I don't mean cooking with jellybeans. I mean that's all we had. A pile of jellybeans. We were asked to put what flavors we thought would work well together on a plate and serve them to Tom Colicchio.

To some people, the resemblance is uncanny. Other folks just don't see it. But whether it is his bald head, his piercing eyes or maybe a combination of both, there's just something about reality-TV star chef Tom Colicchio that reminds many viewers of one of Maryland's favorite sons. "I've been told over and over again, `Hey, you look a lot like Cal Ripken,'" said Colicchio, the head judge on Top Chef, the Bravo channel's cooking competition show. Colicchio said he can see where those people are coming from.

Top Chef, The Cookbook Chronicle Books / 2008 / $29.95 Think Like a Chef By Tom Colicchio Clarkson Potter / 2007 / $22.50 Top Chef contestants could learn a lot from head judge Tom Colicchio before they ever reach the judge's table by reading the recently released softcover edition of this James Beard award-winning book. His recipes are time-consuming but unfussy. They are also inviting. Colicchio spends nearly 100 pages on technique, stocks and basic recipes before moving on to "create ingredients" that he weaves into more complicated dishes.

Wednesday's premiere of “Top Chef: Texas” can be described in one word: overwhelming.   We started the night off with 29 contestants, then they were split into three groups, and within that they were also split into three judging groups, and then they fought to the death over pork tenderloins in “Top Chef: The Hunger Games.” That is what happened, right?   With 29 contestants there was no way I was learning more than five names tonight. So with that I will let you know the five people I actually became slightly invested in for better or worse.

Hello, Top Cheffers! Is it just me, or does last week feel like ages ago? Poor Dakota and Nyesha got sent home, Heather took another step toward becoming the least-liked female contestant in “Top Chef” history, and Ty-Lör got his groove back.   With all that drama, I am happy to see the cheftestants move on to Austin this week. It brings a clean slate in a new city and, of course, a hysterical carpool montage. The chefs' driving montage is pretty filled with standard silly banter but also gives us the gift of Handsome Chris' in-house nickname, Malibu.

I finally got caught up with Bravo's Top Chef, and my, what a lot of rule-breakers they've cast. The show definitely has a great mix of characters, all of whom seem pretty skilled in the kitchen, but it seems much more cut-throat this time around thanks to allegations of cheating and rule-benders. And now judge Tom Colicchio will be keeping an eye on them in the kitchen to make sure this doesn't happen anymore.

You wrote recently about learning techniques instead of just following recipes. Do you have any suggestions on how to develop techniques? I'd like to work on my skills. There are some great books out, including Tom Colicchio's Think Like a Chef or James Peterson's Cooking, which is packed with step-by-step photos. But another thing I like to suggest to beginning cooks is to explore Chinese cooking. It's a great way to focus on techniques or methods. Preparing vegetables in uniform pieces for a stir-fry can teach you knife skills.

We're keeping tabs on Baltimore chef Jill Snyder as she competes on Season 5 of Bravo's "Top Chef." She spoke with us about surviving last week's episode; the second episode airs today at 10 p.m. There were two memorable moments for Baltimore chef Jill Snyder on last week's first episode of the New York edition of Top Chef. The first came during a brutal Quickfire Elimination involving apples (the Big Apple, get it?) when 17 contestants were trimmed to 16, with the departing contestant sent away without even seeing the Top Chef kitchen.
