I was less impressed with some of the other contestants. Carlo's potato pancake was raw in the center, and Otto's featured overcooked brown rice, which mystified me. Brown rice was not in the box, so it was an extra element he'd grabbed from the pantry. It failed to knit the ingredients together in any meaningful way, and then was poorly cooked to boot. But Suyai's dish was the one that failed on all accounts. I could tell she was trying to go for a stew-like ragu with her braised potatoes in red wine with escargot, but the ingredients never came together, the cooking was sloppy, and the final dish just didn't work. I didn't really get to know Suyai in the short time she was with us, but in her audition interview, she mentioned that she had taken up cooking as a way of overcoming an eating disorder -- a choice which clearly required a healthy dose of character and courage. If only her cooking skills had been as strong, Suyai would still be part of the running as we move into week two.
