The Travelogue

12 chefs arrive in London to start their international culinary competition.

May 9, 2012

Ultimately, the local diners -- including the fabulous Ms. Nigella Lawson -- preferred the Black Team's food, even without potatoes. And Chaz won MVP because Keven didn't take credit for his dessert idea. While Chaz did say he wanted to the menu to be balanced, Keven did really push for the dessert. And as Nigella said in my favorite quote of the whole episode: "Even when people were critical of British cooking, no one was ever critical of british pudding." I mean, it was brilliant and almost rhymed! She's the best.

Now, if Keven had spoken up for himself, would he have won? Who knows. in addition to the dessert, Chaz was really responsible for for the execution of the service, sooo I kinda think Chaz deserved it anyway. He stepped up as a leader, rather than just talking about stepping up. Totem pole or not.

Now, to the Red Team. Nookie somehow effectively convinced his team that Clara should go home and she did. Man, tough break, Clara. The whole thing was sort of confusing. Nookie didn't cook to his ability because he didn't want to be seen as a threat, but then he convinced the others to vote of Clara for being the worst. Those two strategies almost contradict each other in that they're assuming his fellow teammates are being swayed by two different thoughts. I just think Nookie and Cheven are so transparent with their "manipulation," I just don't get it.

I guess we'll see if it works as well next week when the chefs head to...  Lyon, France! Mon die!

Sooo who do you think is going to win it all? And who are you already exited to see pack their bags? Taking predictions and comments now! Until next week, Have a Nosh!
