Padma Lakshmi: Krishna Will Have the 'Greatest Palate in the World'

As host of Bravo's Top Chef, Padma Lakshmi is game for just about anything. "We eat all kinds of funky things on the show," the cookbook author, 39, said during a Tuesday visit to Lopez Tonight.

As host of Bravo’s Top Chef — which premieres its new season at 9 p.m. Wednesday — Padma Lakshmi is game for just about anything.

“We eat all kinds of funky things on the show,” the cookbook author, 39, said during a Tuesday visit to Lopez Tonight.

As a nursing mom during production for season seven, however, Lakshmi was often eating for two!

That’s why daughter Krishna Thea, 3 months, “will have the greatest palate in the world,” the proud mama predicts. “She ate everything that I ate, through my breastmilk.”

“My baby was having a little bit of yak, a little bit of curry goat, a little bit of duck balls,” Lakshmi laughs. “I’ve eaten a lot of testicles in my days … I’ve had bull’s cojones … I’ll try anything once.”
