Finally, we had Kerry's dish. Poor Kerry couldn't get any of the diners to respond to his Frenchifying everything -- until he got to the judges. Kerry starts with a cold soup which I would say was definitely a risk. He followed that up with an orzo salad -- I love an orzo salad. If you're looking for something quick, Whole Foods has a good one in their prepared food section. Even Robin Leach says his food was "primo for a picnic," which makes him a winner in my book.
And so we come to Critics' Table. We find out that Lorena didn't taste her food today. Yikes! Kerry says Chris and Patricia have been amazing helping him. Burn! Chris and Kerry end up on top, and Chris eventually gets the win. And as the chefs await their fate, Patricia says "I think of it as the better person will stay in the competition." Well, Lorena stayed. So what does that mean?! Probably nothing. Patricia will be just fine. And now Lorena has made it to the final three against Kery and Chris. Mazel tov, Lorena! I, for one, can't wait to see who makes it to the finale.
Until next week, Have a Nosh! We'll be off drinking with that random Diner en Blance dad whose son said "My dad really liked the wine… as usual."
I'm glad Lorena won. Patricia was very nasty to Lorena; talking about her aloud; Lorena could hear her, but took the high road and never responded. WISH U LUCK LORENA
Lorena could not choose to cook in the Quickfire because the knife said where you had to be and hers said Pantry.
I find Lorena difficult for anyone but Art to get along with. I think the judges keep her around just to 'spice' up the show. I can't taste the food, but think Patricia is by far the superior chef. If Lorena wins, I won't come back next season. For me, this season is over. Without Patricia, Thiery and Takashi, it has lost it's appeal.
One thing I like the best about TC Masters is that they are normally respectful of each other and you can see the camaraderie. That is where the drama is built (i.e. Takashi saying goodbye to his friend Thierry, etc). So I found Patricia's sniping at Lorena to be really annoying. Left a bad taste in my mouth, no pun intended.
