It was Top Chef: Just Desserts finale night and the talk bubbling was, well, a bubbling! @Yeeitsbribri kicked things off succinctly and sweetly, saying, "top chef just desserts suuuuuucka." We assume the 6 u's in sucka meant he was totally excited. @alexZOOlatte followed, tweeting, "top chef just desserts finale today! I hope morgan loses bc he's nothing but a pastry baking jerk!" That may be, but let's be honest, who wouldn't let him bake their pastries?
Insults and suuuuuuckas aside, it was time to get down to business. And Gail, Johnny and the gang didn't waste any time, moving right to the final challenge. But as is Top Chef norm, we had some surprise visitors! @amateurgourmet was one of many impressed tweeters: "#JustDesserts finale, surprise sous chefs are Claudia Fleming, Sherry Yard and Elizabeth Faulkner. Whoa!" @TheGastronomer kept it simpler, beaming, "This is so cool!" Well, put on a jacket, buddy-boy!
As the chefs prepped, talk bubblers sounded off. @febeccaglia couldn't contain his or her enthusiasm, enthusing "Yigit rocks! He is playing smart and keeping a positive attitude. Really hope he wins." @boulderbaker was just glad that "finally, someone stands up to Morgan - you go Claudia Fleming!"
The judges were seated and the chefs began their presentations. @CupcakePimpDC got all partisan, opining "Watching season finale of #topchefjustdesserts on DVR. Yigit's date motif = gag. And enough w/the ice-cream & sorbets!!! @courtenlow begged to differ, clearly throwing her support behind the Team Diva mainstay. "I like Yigit a lot. Also, the spelling of his name blows my mind as much as the pronunciation of acai." It sure does! We still kind of wish it rhymed with "Gidget."
Host and hair impresario @Johnny_Iuzzini was diplomatic, tweeting "First course--all strong out of the gates." Team Diva cover boy and fallen cheftestant @zacayoung echoed our thoughts on Danielle's plate, as he oozed "cheese plate = awesome."
