Padma Lakshmi ’92 talked to The Boston Globe about her new memoir “Love, Loss, and What We Ate,” and her time spent filming a season of “Top Chef” in Boston.
Here, an excerpt from the interview:
“Q. When you were in college at Clark University in Worcester, did you visit Boston often?
“A. I did. I love Boston. I really enjoyed the season we shot there on ‘Top Chef.’ Boston, like Seattle, was one of the few cities where I got to have a corporate apartment rather than just a hotel room. I went shopping a lot. I went to the farmers’ market and Sofra for spices, and also for their prepared foods. I went to Formaggio Kitchen and I loved that. Just eating my way through Boston from Ken Oringer’s Toro to all Barbara Lynch’s restaurants. I put on so much weight.”
