But it was the final course that won this season for Chris. A plate of blood sausage, poached oysters, herb salad, and a fried egg might seem at first prosaic, even unsophisticated, a nonsensical hodgepodge of elements and ingredients. In Chris' hands, though, it made perfect sense: It was a flawless sausage, an exquisitely fried egg, oysters that were the very essence of oysterness, and a bright green salad that spoke to everything else on the plate and brought it all together. Was it bold, was it a crazy leap of faith, was it a strange and potentially alienating last supper to serve to the critics? Yes, but I'll take it. It was perfect, and it was brave. It was the ideal finale to the finale.
I have very much enjoyed reading your blog this season, James. Thanks for sharing, and I hope that you will be back for the next season of Top Chef Masters.
Mr. Oseland, what you don't mention is your description of your own daily love letter. I have to say that was a brief, but beautiful moment as described by you (the sincere emotion was evident in the tone of your voice). I'm so glad it did not get edited out of the show. Thank you for sharing.
