Although ultimately Patricia makes Missy's dish, Art and Chris once again go into it about sharing ingredients. Chris needs his ingredients but Art lays a guilt trip on him that it's for Missy! Chris eventually gives in, but not before making the excellent point that it's easy for Art to care more about someone else's dish because his arse has immunity!
After prep, the chefs get ready head to Wicked Spoon. Their diners? The fabulous entertainers of Vegas. I love a Vegas buffet, so I would've loved to join, but alas I have no talent worthy of a Vegas stage.
The judges walk in. We meet new judge Krista Simmons. James Oseland is wearing plaid, my favorite. Curtis is giddy and says Patrica like "Patriciaaa." He also says "It's just de-licious" about Art's dessert. I love Curtis.
I won't go through each chef's dish, but basically the Mexican buffet was better received than the Indian. In fact, few if not none of the Indian Team chefs' dishes were Indian. Guess they should've sent someone to get more ingredients! (This is where I eat my words about sending Art back to the store for more ingredients.)
Is there a reason why these judges have to be so arrogant, rude and condescending? There is a way to tell someone there dishes aren't great without sounding like they are the slime on the bottom of your shoe. Just what are the qualifications of the judges - gee - they write about food. That tells me nothing - other than they are academics that look down on other people and like to lord their knowledge over us lower beings and maybe, just maybe they might take pity and spare us a glance or a nod.
I would like to know who considers Pork and Beans Mexican food, I am of Mexican heritage and its a disgrace to say that you or anyone of your chefs consider that Mexican food, by that definition the French food should consider the french fry a french cuisine. I am really disappointed that you as food critics or judges consider that Mexican food I know I have never seen it in any of my grandmother's recipes or any Mexican cook book.
