    Go Kelly!

    I am bummed that she lost on Iron Chef America. I think she has a great chance of going far.

    Her restaurant is very close to the Vail Fire Department where Ryan Sutter works. Vail is turning into the reaility tv contestant capital of the US. There have been several Survivor contestants, too.

    Doesn't the Cooking Show version of Reality Show Cross-Pollination more often go "Top Chef FIRST then Iron Chef America"? This lady's done it in reverse!

    If I recall correctly, Richard Blais and Eli were on Iron Chef before Top Chef. Then again, Eli was just Richard's sous at the time...

    Me too! Haven't had her lamb, but she makes the best deep fried green beans, this side of Ohio!
