Hugh Acheson examines Nookie's worldly skills.

on May 30, 2012

Sun Tzu, I mean Nookie, is schooling Avery in the art of war. Nookie is feeling good and may be integral in the overthrow of many North African governments by the end of the show. Chaz is still very pissy about the beets. Let it go, Chaz. Slice of White B is solid with the White Team plan to vote Avery off, but his reasoning is that its because Avery is actually really good and therefore a long term threat. 

Liz is really good in the front-of-house role, but Red Team’s food is also just better, though I liked Avery’s trio of salads too in Black Team land. Looked good. Chaz is convinced Avery’s salad was made by someone else and that there was a second shooter in the JFK assassination. 

White Team

Chaz Brown - Couscous with Roasted Vegetables

Gary Walker - Chickpea, Carrot and Tomato Salad

Nick Lacasse - Chicken Tagine with Green Olives and Preserved Lemons


Black Team

Avery Pursell and John Vermiglio - Trio of Moroccan Salads

Steve "Nookie" Postal - Beef and Vegetable Tagine

John Vermiglio - Saffron Stewed White Beans


Red Team

Liz Garrett - Saffron Couscous with Onions, Vegetables and Harissa

Jenna Johansen - Lamb Tagine with Garden Vegetables

Nicole Lou - Rice Pudding with Orange Flower Water


Red Team wins. Liz wins the episode with her front-of-house fortitude and her Couscous. 

Chaz goes home to fax his resume to Paula Wolfert. Call me, Chaz -- I think I have her number.
