Host of Bravo’s Top Chef
Bag: Yves Saint Laurent (Majorelle bag in sea blue patent leather, $1,400; ysl.com).
Buys: “In India I always go to markets like Chandni Chowk in New Delhi (N-Block, Connaught Place) to buy curry powders, (left) such as sambhar, a blend of chiles, coriander and cumin, and a spice blend for pav bhaji, a vegetable dish with lentils and potatoes. And I buy bolts of raw silk at a shop called Nalli to make tablecloths. I go to the Delhi store, but there are also outposts in California.”
