It’s Padma Lakshmi!
OK, we know you’re dying for context. Monday night (October 8) at the Capital Food Fight, an annual cook-off between renowned chefs benefitting the DC Central Kitchen, The Top Chef host let a guest eat a piece of Ibérico ham off of her collarbone in exchange for a $1,000 donation. She gamely balanced the cold cut on her chest, let the man pluck it off with his mouth, and — ever the professional — gave him a big hug afterward.
Eater has a video of the whole thing. (You can see Top Chef all-star Carla Hall and guest-judge José Andrés laughing in the background, along with Travel Channel foodies Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern.)
Lady Gaga would be so proud... but maybe not the Department of Health!
