You never forget your first time.

Other chefs had trouble with the heat. Whether it was Lorena’s mango, Thierry’s crepes, or Mark’s shrimp, too much time on a smoking hot grill burned, battered, and overcooked the ingredients. But in the end, what put those three in the bottom wasn’t the teppanyaki. It was a simple case of seasoning. Without question, a chef needs to taste his or her dishes. It’s impossible to know what you’re serving otherwise. Mark left himself the least wiggle room by making such a simple dish and in this case it sent him home. Best of luck, Mark. It’s been a pleasure having you on this season.
