Top Chef fans: while you’re waiting for a new season of Bravo’s hit culinary competition, host Padma Lakshmi has some suggestions to make your summer.

Padma has teamed up with the folks at Nespresso, who know a thing or two about coffee machines, to make espresso more accessible – as in the comfort of your own home.

She recently talked with me about her involvement with Nespresso, including giving you a great recipe for a coffee dessert that you can use at your next summer party – and, of course, Top Chef.

Check out the video interview below as Padma and I talk about coffee, food and whether you’ll see a tenth season of Top Chef on Bravo. Make sure to watch carefully as she’ll show you how to make a great coffee and ice cream desser for your next summer event.

To keep up with Padma, visit her official website, and you can also follow her on Twitter at, of course, @PadmaLakshmi.
