Just wanted to remind you about the ‘Top Chef Las Vegas’ premiere during a random week in August. It’s tonight! Bravo’s casino-themed promo, in which a roulette wheel temporarily obscures Padma’s face instead of knives, just reminded me. “It’s gonna get dicey,” guys. For example: I’m not sure I want to know what suspicious Frenchman Mattin is gonna do with that rabbit.

Zucchini and carrots are nice if you are a rabbit, but come on. Which other foods would you use as poker chips in your dreams? I’ll start.

–Harold’s popcorn-cake garnish (season 1)

–Ilan’s shrimp and chorizo fideo cakes (season 2)

–Casey’s veal medallions (season 3)

–Richard’s banana scallops (season 4)

–Carla’s apple tart coins (season 5)

–Anita Lo’s lobster biscuit sandwiches (Masters), which I would not be betting
