Tom’s Coke Commercial

When I first saw this commercial air during the Oscars, I was shocked that Tom Colicchio–chef, Top Chef judge, restaurant owner–would feel the need to do a commercial.  In my mind, he’s well above commercials.  But then the commercial was for Diet Coke (not beer, as I initially assumed), and despite the fact that I drink much much less of it than I used to, Coke still remains close to my heart.  If Tom had to advertise something, I’m glad it was at least something good.

Another reason to love Tom Colicchio (like we needed any)

Ezra Klein of the Internet Food Association posted a great story this morning about the fact that Tom Colicchio, chef and head  judge on “Top Chef” saved a life last night.

In addition to the fact that Tom is amazing (and is now also a hero), I’m a bit jealous that Ezra Klein got to attend Art.Food.Hope, the pre-inaugaration benefit to aid the hungry in DC.  If I ever manage to get any sort of audience for this blog, I am going to start finding my way to these sorts of events.  You should check out the chefs, artists and authors invited–I would have been speechless (which is perhaps why I wasn’t invited).
