SPOILER ALERT: Last night marked the finale of the first season of Top Chef: Just Desserts, and San Francisco resident Yigit Pura of Taste Catering emerged victorious. Remember, Pura wasn't the expected choice; he narrowly avoided getting kicked off in the Sylvia Weinstock cake episode and the judges kept telling him to work on restraint. But Pura's "cuddly" desserts ended up winning him the $100,000 prize, and according to him, "Fuck, it feels awesome." Eater National has the full-on tear-jerker finale video over here.
