This week's Top Chef paid homage to Goodfellas with an Italian-themed challenge and the film's Oscar-nominated actress Lorraine Bracco serving as guest judge. The cheftestants were split in three teams and tasked with making a dish for the one of New York's quintessential Italian-American restaurants, Rao's. But the group charged with the secondi (better known as the pasta course) failed to deliver on arguably the most important dish of an Italian meal. Unfortunately for Tre Wilcox, his overly thick risotto was the worst offense.
Find out why the Texas native coined himself as the "Black Italian" and what he really thinks about Anthony Bourdain's judging style. Plus: How does he always manage to stay out of the drama?
