Has anyone else been following Top Chef Chicago?
What is the story behind this tapioca-pearl faux-caviar? Why is it suddenly appearing on top of otherwise perfectly good dishes, night after night? Tapioca is not fit for human consumption. And the passing resemblance to caviar is just insulting. If you can’t afford caviar, why would you replace it with tapioca? Just give me a homely anchovy or something and I’ll be happy.
