Top Chef Masters is back tonight, and after last week’s wonderful episode, I have high hopes for a repeat performance — especially when the chefs are thrown the curveball of having to cook for actress Zooey Deschanel, who, you should know, eats NOTHING. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. She’s a vegan, but she’s also gluten intolerant, and most significantly, she doesn’t eat soy. So that leaves… air? Well, there are more options than that, but it’ll be a doozy for the chefs, especially Art Smith, who hopefully will crash and burn again (and this time go home).
Two more preview vids after the jump.

  1. I’m pretty excited about a vegan episode of Top Chef, but I can’t help but obsess about what Zooey eats – I’m vegan myself but I have no idea how you’d do it without soy or gluten (tofu, tempeh, and seitan being my three favorite proteins). I mean, can you really get all your protein from nuts and beans alone? Difficult to imagine.

  2. jesus, why doesnt she just go raw? it would make this challenge more fun.
    whats decidedly NOT fun is her. zooey really annoys me. not sure why, but i only enjoyed 500 days of summer because i imagined it was someone else BUT her.

  3. She was on Craig Ferguson last night and denied being a vegan or even a vegetarian. Says she occasionally does vegan but mostly eats whatever she wants. Lying little twat.

  4. Wow, why is everyone so mean to her? I like her and thought she was gracious and sweet. It wouldn’t suprise me that she is vegan as her sister Emily is. Also if anyone has ever eaten anything from Dreena Burton you would know just how delicious vegan food is. She rarely uses soy and many of her recipes are gluten free.
    I am vegetarian with no dietary restrictions but found I love vegan food as well. You would be suprised at how much better you feel not eating dairy.
