There were some serious glitches in the meal preparation part of the contest this week. The Red Team’s quenelles were pasty and thick, they ran out of haddock, and they had real issues with the timing of the Salade Lyonaisse. Things didn’t go that smoothly for the Black Team either. Gary’s strategy of offering the meals as a degustation (a quick tasting) offended the locals and Chaz’s chicken portions were way too big. Aren’t small portions the great diet secret of the French?
The Black Team managed to squeak out a win this time but the Red Team put on a great effort. The next stop, Barcelona, is one of my favorite cities. The food, the scenery, the architecture, the people — they’re all fabulous!
