'Top Chef' Michael Voltaggio gives Conan O'Brien a gold grill

December 11, 2009 |  2:07 pm

L.A.'s superstar "Top Chef" Michael Voltaggio made an appearance on the "Tonight Show" last night and built a dish called "The Yogurt Shop," basically a souped-up version of a dirt cup. In the hilarious segment, Conan O'Brien smears some of the "fool's gold" pralines all over his teeth and lips, creating a shiny gold grill that would put Lil Wayne to shame.

Voltaggio really got the crowd going when he busted out the liquid nitrogen, showing TV land that he’s just as much of a personality as he is a chef.
