Watching Patricia and Lorena was an entirely different show. First, the two work so differently. Lorena’s flare and flourish was so markedly different than Patricia’s cool-headed precision. Both ended up creating amazing food that reflected their style so clearly. Lorena’s winning Potato and Bacon Soup with Corn and Bacon Sofrito was luscious and sensual while Patricia’s Bacon, Leek and Tomato Salad was balanced and restrained.
In the Championship Round, Lorena’s fire, speed, and risk-taking proved that she’s the dark horse in this competition. It took serious guts to bake a flourless chocolate cake in 20 minutes and even more never-say-die passion to make Caramelized Pineapple and Dulce de Leche Sauce as a backup. Chris’ Zabaione and Summer Fruit was exactly what a zabaione should be, a light and frothy custard that played perfectly with the sweetness of ripe fruit. But Lorena’s two beautifully rich desserts won out.
The Elimination Round was heartbreaking. However the votes fell, a truly talented chef was leaving the competition. Best of luck Takashi! I can’t wait to eat more of your Michelin-starred food the next time I’m in Chicago.
Oh for crying out loud....the first two comments kill me...get over yourselves...you are not a chef, nor were you there to try the dishes that night. As happens many times, a very talented chef can have an off night...and considering the quality of these chefs, it's anyone's game. Someone had to go....I loved Takashi too....but his time was up, fair and square.
I knew when Takashi didn't win the Quickfire, and immunity, that he was being set up to go home. So, I turned off the TV, and went to bed.
I do not, for a moment, believe that Lorena's food was really better than Takashi's. I'm sure Lorena's food is delicious, but seriously, Takashi is the master chef who should have won this entire competition.
