Mei Lin is the newest addition to THE LIST on COOKGIRL after winning Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” Season 12 title last night, February 11th. Her blend of Chinese flavors with a Mexican inspiration was genius, including congee garnished with scallion puree, carnitas, homemade hot sauce and egg yolk. Dessert brought the judges to their knees. Mei Lin’s dish was described as “the best dessert I’ve ever had on Top Chef, period” by judge Tom Colicchio.
COOKGIRL cheered as Mei Lin picked Melissa King and Rebecca LaMalfa as her two sous chefs. Talk about girl power! COOKGIRL votes for a pop-up restaurant in LA with this power trio.
She gave up her job as sous chef at INK in Los Angeles under Michael Voltaggio to compete on “Top Chef”. Mei Lin called Voltaggio after learning that she won. As a “Top Chef” veteran himself and her mentor, her win is extra sweet. Especially since it was dessert from a non-pastry chef that clinched the win. Cook On!back to blog home >>
