This is why I don't like these kind of team challenges, the worst dish gets a pass because the judges like the other dishes. I didn't want to wait until the weekend for Top Chef so here we are! To help each chef in that task Padma welcomed back five former contestants as options for sous chefs, each arriving with a unique set of ingredients inspired by traditional Chinese New Year tidings: longevity, happiness, health, wealth and togetherness. Even the slow-pokes couldn't be totally on the hook for being slow. Smartly, Kelsey knew to take in everything Graham was pointing out because shortly after they met up with for a Quickfire Challenge using the the following proteins they bought in the market: giant scallops for Sara, gum fish for Kelsey, cuttlefish for Michelle, sea snails for Eric and razor clams for Adrienne. I just made a reservation for New Year's eve dinner at his restaurant. Claudette complained that no one could relate to her because she is the hardest working mom ever and no one has ever worked harder than her, the single mom then she mentioned her husband so.
Adrienne chose Brian Young and his health plate with eggs, broccoli and ginger. Tyler is all agog The Mystery Product is. Kentucky native Sara Bradley earned her first individual win last week, giving her a slight edge over Adrienne Wright who like Sara has placed on the high end and low end four times each this season Adrienne, however, does not have a solo win. Sanford wines gets a plug. Upon rewatch, it was just as time was called. Tu burns something and Sasto loses his mind, but only in his mind, so it was okay. Fluff: This is supposedly the episode where Chef John Besh was edited out of after being accused of sexual harassment allegations against him.
We're back at the Top Chef celebrating Tyler Anderson's win but he's already up my nose so he gets one tiny fist bump only from me. . Adrienne is leading with a raw fish with cheese, which makes me hope she knows as much about fish and cheese pairings as she says she does. As Tom says, they aren't flocking around. The Blue Team splits everything up down the middle, I dunno man. Loved Fatima cracking herself up. Yet another reason I'm a Tyler fan as I've been a big fan of Julia's since I saw her very first show when I was 5 years old in 1963.
Yeah, well, he also hates the combination of fish and tongs, so I feel free to dismiss him whenever he acts like a nitwit. She gets first blood for her team. When I have grilled steak, I save the trimmed cooked beef fat, and render it. So it was interesting, and maybe even gratifying, to see the problems with that dish not be the ingredients, but the execution. Edit 2: You can see him.
Graham showed them rose apples, durian fruit and century eggs, among other ingredients the chefs had never tasted or even seen before. The dumpling in the second course looked so yummy. She had them on briefly — probably to read the menu — and it seemed new to me. I am worried about our tall Mexican drink of water! If Laura wanted to do dessert, why didn't she just speak up? We're back in the kitchen again and it's time for the Quickfire Mise en Place challenge! Have we seen Padma with glasses before? Tom Colicchio's face says it all. I also had never heard of that. It was interesting to hear commentary from more than one judge that the usually verboten cheese and fish combination wasn't bad or even worked, but the other aspects of the dish sunk it.
Bruce has really faded into the background. She seems talented, but she needs to find a way to get her ideas out there and I hope that the raves that her dish drew are enough to get her some credibility with the group. If you over cook your steak you cannot claim you aimed for medium well and get away with that! Yeah when Tom mentioned that the lamb was raw, Padma said she ate all of her raw lamb, though that was on the lamb dish that was inconsistently cooked so maybe her piece wasn't as rare as Tom. No matter what they prefer personally the judges expect medium rare beef and lamb. The Blue Team is far too interested in trying to make this Bear thing work to concentrate on food, I'm just going to say. So Carrie basically asks her not to be so harsh with Claudette. In our family, we like both on the rare side of medium rare, especially lamb, so I'm often baffled by Tom's comments.
You can actually feel the difference. For him it's not about prepping onions until your fingers ache, it's about making sure you have your shit in place before you start anything. Name Current Residence Season s Brother Luck Colorado Springs, Colorado 15 Tu David Phu Oakland, California 15 Kwame Onwuachi Washington, D. Bon appetit and enjoy your salmon. However, I've never found the bear den hilarious even in its inception. Chef Tyler' cross-dressing Julia habit made me love him even more. Well, looks like Snidely is taking over the menu.
We getta see Chris Scott's past photos stone cold fox, yo too as he tells us he was once an overbearing narcissistic egomaniac like Sasto. Sara chose happiness with Eddie Konrad and his plate of shrimp, cauliflower and walnuts. The water fall was huge, maybe 40', and those salmon who didn't find the stairs were hitting the side walls, how those fish ever make that end run is beyond me. I admire Tom hugely for being on the sexual harassment issue early, and openly. One of them would have been bounced had their team not won. Tom and Alex come in to see how everyone is doing just as Sasto realises his lamb looks like shite next to Rogelio's.
Chris Amish fusion guy knew exactly where he wanted to go with that dish, and Padma said it might have been her all time favorite dessert ever. I really think that they have watched the show enough to know that if they act like assholes, it may come back to bite them. And finally out last course, Dessert Blue Team Green Team - Feta Ice Cream! I was looking forward to seeing what she was gonna do; anyone who can do a mole sauce in under an hour has my attention. Happy too, that Tuo survived the bottom this week. There were the bears, the cool girls, and the leftovers. Rolling S15:E02 Smile and Say Mise after the break! I hadn't really realized that the white dudes bend the mood of the group to whatever they are feeling, but in retrospect, it's very true.
Just caught up on this ep. I knew she was bad news before she went out. The right chef was eliminated. If you over cook your steak you cannot claim you aimed for medium well and get away with that! She decides to take the same path as Tyler, creating new dishes organically and not relying on stuff she knows she can make in time. It may have been what one did years ago. I like farms, wondering what his is like.
