Picks and Pans Review: Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi

UPDATED 11/13/2006 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 11/13/2006 at 01:00 AM EST

Cookbook author and actress (The Ten Commandments), the 36-year-old wife of writer Salman Rushdie hosts Bravo's reality contest, which is judged by restaurateur Tom Colicchio.

ON HER FIRST DAY AT WORK I had to taste frog legs, snails and liver. And I was concerned my hair not be in the way of the food, so we really sprayed it a lot. And then they flambéed! All I could think was "My hair is going to go up in flames!"

ON HOW A FOODIE STAYS SLIM I box. It's great exercise and no matter what mood I go into the ring with, I come out feeling better. I don't do yoga. I'm the only Indian on the planet who doesn't.
