The premiere of Top Chef: New Orleans is next Wednesday (October 2), featuring Seattle's own Carrie Mashaney (Spinasse, Aragona), and Bravo has released three preview clips from the first episode. There's one at the cheftestapants' house, one where judge Tom Colicchio calls host Padma Lakshmi "swamp queen", and another one that actually gives our gal Mashaney a little bit of quality on-camera time. Feast your eyes on video number two to see her talk about what it was like to arrive to a cooking site that had no kitchen: "All the tables, all the burners, everything is just in a pile." Shit gets real.
