'Top Chef' takeover: Padma, Tom and Gail share recipes for the new season
The 'Top Chef' judges make Portland-inspired recipes to celebrate the show's latest season.
Ditte IsagerPadma Lakshmi's Mushroom and Cheese FlautasPadma Lakshmi"This is an easy recipe everyone loves," said Lakshmi."It's a yummy crowd-pleaser that's great to make in big quantities for a party. Flautas are best served hot out of the pan and with plenty of the dipping sauce. The fresh tortillas will keep in the fridge, as will the cheeses, so this is also something you can make spontaneously."

The flavor is somewhat similar to that of salmon but slightly milder and less oily. It doesn't take much to bring out the best in this fish. A simple citrus marinade and pan-sear is perfect."

Portland also happens to have a thriving microbrew culture so the beer selection on our time off from work was outstanding. Beer is the perfect vehicle for steaming clams and they naturally pair so well together. It's easy and bright, incredibly flavorful and reminds me of our wild 'Top Chef' adventures by the sea." headtopics.com
