Padma LakshmiNow that this season of 'Top Chef' is over -- with Michael Voltaggio having been crowned the winner -- millions of viewers will once again face the debilitating syndrome known as PW: Padma Withdrawal. How will we survive another hiatus without a weekly helping of Padma Lakshmi, our exotic guide through the world of haute cuisine? She even made packing our knives and going sound appealing.

How will we survive another hiatus without a weekly helping of Padma Lakshmi, our exotic guide through the world of haute cuisine? She even made packing our knives and going sound appealing.

To help carry us over to the premiere of 'Top Chef' season 7, here are three more video delights to compensate for the upcoming lack of Lakshmi.

1. 'Star Trek: Enterprise' - 'Precious Cargo'
In this second-season episode of the 'Star Trek' prequel series, Padma played Kaitaama, First Monarch of the Sovereign Dynasty of Creos Prime. Dressed like a Vegas cocktail waitress, she is rescued by Commander Tucker (Connor Trinneer) after being abducted by interstellar kidnappers.


2. 'Glitter'
Mariah Carey's infamous movie debut features Padma in the supporting role of Sylk, an '80s pop diva upstaged by Carey, who plays one of her background singers. If you've ever wanted to hear Padma sing, here's your chance.


3. 'That Look You Give That Guy' - The Eels
At last, a non-'Top Chef' credit that wouldn't cause our favorite model and cookbook author to hang her head in shame. In this artsy 2009 music video, Padma is at her most traffic-stoppingly beautiful as the love interest of Eels lead singer Mark Oliver Everett -- here sporting the worst rock and roll beard since the glory days of ZZ Top.
