'Top Chef' has winning style to spare
Sacramento Bee - CA, USA - Stephanie Izard was kicking back at Lake Tahoe the other day.

None of the dishes that helped her win Bravo TV's "Top Chef" competition in June was on her menu.

No sautéed red snapper with truffled white asparagus, no lamb medallions with maitake mushrooms and braised pistachios, no ricotta pound cake with salted banana cream and lime glaze.

Just shrimp sautéed in bacon fat, finished with a corn salad and toasted almonds.

"Bacon makes everything taste better," said Izard as she fried a couple slices while preparing the shrimp dish during her cooking demonstration at the 23rd annual Lake Tahoe Autumn Food and Wine

Stamford native Stephanie Izard receives Bravo's Top Chef honors
The Stamford Times - Norwalk, CT, USA - During this season's edition of Bravo TV's "Top Chef," contestant Stephanie Izard had to conceptualize and bake an elaborate wedding cake in 24 hours, butcher an entire pig to create food for a garden party and reinvent duck a l'orange for celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito.

But it was the final challenge in Puerto Rico that the Stamford-born Izard will remember best, for it was there that she was named the winner of the fourth edition of the popular reality show, becoming the first woman to achieve the honor.

"I'm very excited to win. It's very exciting to represent women of course, but

'Top Chef' Winner Stephanie Izard: 'I Deserved It'
Entertainment Weekly - USA - When Stephanie Izard woke up yesterday, she was just your average chef. Today, everything's changed. For starters, she has a wicked hangover, and 100 grand in her pocket, after having been declared the season 4 Top Chef winner (see our season finale TV Watch recap). ''Way too many strangers [bought] me shots of things last night,'' she says. And the baked potato chips she was snacking on in the morning weren't much help sopping up the congratulatory gestures. Before breaking for a cure, the 31-year-old spoke with EW.com about her newfound fame.

Top Chef: Stephanie takes it home!
Time Out New York - New York, NY, USA - The finale for season four of Top Chef did an admirable job of ratcheting up the suspense, but in the end, the decision was inevitable. There’s been enough contention on the Internet about this finally being the season in which a female Top Chef would be crowned, and conspiracy theories aside, the last few episodes have shaped up just so.

The episode kicked off with a quick overview of the contestants’ feelings on their journey thus far, and what lay ahead. Stephanie wanted to overcome her nerves, Lisa was convinced she deserved to be there (and surprisingly—perhaps for the first time

OK! Interview: Top Chef's Stephanie Izard
OK! Magazine - New York, NY, USA - When Top Chef: Chicago premiered in March, Bravo asked viewers, "What will happen first: a female President or a female Top Chef?" Well, the latter definitely won out. Stephanie Izard took one for the ladies (and her Chicago hometown) Wednesday night when she was named the fourth winner -- and first female champ -- of Top Chef. The 31-year-old not only overcame frontrunner Richard Blais and a strong final showing from resident "villain" Lisa Fernandes for the bragging rights, but her ever-present nerves as well. With a cool $100,000 in her pocket and restaurant plans already in the works, Stephanie

Top Chef Toques a Winner
E! Online - USA - Stephanie Izard was named the winner of the fourth season of Top Chef Wednesday, becoming the first female contestant to chop, stir and sauté her way to the top of the food chain after the judges figured a lackluster final dessert shouldn't derail her chances after an impressive season-long performance, which included four Elimination Challenge wins.

"I won Top Chef—holy s--t!" the 31-year-old Chicago resident said. "This is the biggest thing that has happened in my life. My life's about to change, it's going to be absolutely insane."

"I'm so glad I was able to pull through and, after all this hard
