Anita Lo who was extremely creative and focused. To make the illusion of the scallop was genius. She won this so easily and braising the diakon was risky. Looking forward to watching her take on the next bracket of Masters. Definitely a cook's chef!
John Besh: Needs to call up my friend Richard Blais and learn something about Liquid Nitrogen because all he made was cold Crème Fraiche and if really thinks he needed 10 minutes to thicken his sorbet with “Ice Liquid” he is completely unknowledgeable with what he was working with. I’ve seen Richard make enough ice cream for a room of 100 in three minutes. I personally don’t touch the stuff and John should have done the same thing. Stick with what you know but I guess that didn’t work with the eggs. Racking up the lowest score of the season places you in the Clay category of my season: hollowed-out apple amuse!
Douglas Rodriguez: I love fire! Sterno not so much!
Mark Peel: The package didn’t look that impressive but the judges loved the flavor! I was confused that he left the skin on the fish when he essentially steamed the fish.
Who’s your favorite so far?
I’m still a huge fan of the Uber Keller!
Best meltdown: Ludo Lefebvre!
Next up: I really enjoyed meeting and eating with Rick Moonen and Michael Chiarello; should provide some great entertainment.
The West is the Best!
Doogie and card tricks by the likes of Max Maven and his color band of Hocus Pocus!
Do people really live and dress like this?
