“Top Chef” viewers will recognize Bryan and Michael Voltaggio as the brothers who spiked every dish with liberal doses of sibling rivalry. Now they come from their respective day jobs – Bryan, at Volt in Frederick, Md. and Michael at Pasadena, Calif.’s Langham Huntington Hotel Dining Room – to cook a lavish dinner at the James Beard House on March 9. And that dinner kicks off with foie gras-jelly doughnuts, which we’d submit as the official jumping of the shark on the high-low-contrast thing (right behind “porcini munchos” – do the Munchos™ people know about this?). Full menu below.
