Ted Allen Disses 'Top Chef' Judge

You can see Ted Allen every week on Food Network's 'Chopped' (Tuesdays at 10PM ET), but before he became host, he was a judge on 'Top Chef.' So what does the foodie think about the show's new love-him-or-hate him judge Toby Young?
Ted Allen "It's not helpful for someone to say that a dish looks like vomit. That's really kind of immature and sort of grabbing for a soundbite. Maybe it makes for a nice promo -- I'm sure television executives like it -- but it doesn't reveal that you have any knowledge about food. Of course I don't watch that show anymore, so I have no idea. [Laughs]"
