In this episode the chefs go for a “day off” at the movies, and my heart is already pounding for them, as there is never such a thing as “day off” on Top Chef, but then I think, hey, they are at least getting to rest their nerves for a few hours. But I recall that’s even worse because my mind would be constantly trying to conjure up what’s to come up next.
Willy Wonka is a brilliant translation of a pastry chefs' addiction to sugar, chocolate, and how it can translate into wonders. It really is an exploration of the possibilities of desserts from a child’s perspective. And really creative desserts are like “controlled child’s play” This is AWESOME!
And what? No Quickfire. Holy moly. This is going to be bad!
The chefs have to literally build the Wonka playland out of edible ornaments as well as desserts. A land of sugar and candy you can walk through. Katy Perry, eat your heart out!
The chefs choose to work in two separate teams, and as we’ve seen some people don’t like to work in teams, so again I feel some tension and drama coming on. By this point you can already see who is willing to take a challenge and be inspired and just make the best of it, and others who are again easily irritated and grumpy!
