This season of "Top Chef" hasn't given Chicagoans much to cheer about in the way of hometown pride (or much else). But in two weeks, "Top Chef: Just Desserts" will feature Glencoe native Malika Ameen, co-owner of and pastry chef at the late Aigre Doux. Set your DVR and get your giant fondant-coated foam "We're #1" finger ready.
