Overall, the food looked pretty good. Lots of people fighting each other. Stefan got the better of Tesar even while rocking the frozen fish. Brooked took Bart with her chocolate pudding that almost didn’t get finished. Sheldon squashed Micah in Crudo vs. Chicken Biscuit 2012. Lizzie mauled Josie, but really Josie mauled herself. Josh won his head-to-head by not cooking pork, the meat he loves, but doesn’t cook very well in front of a camera. Kristen won her little challenge against herself and pulls out the big win as well. On re-entering the Stew Room, did Stefan say that “wifey” won? I feel like some naughty time is happening.
Danyele gets the boot. She was looking tired of the rat race anyhow.
Best of luck to you, Danyele.
you have the most personality of the top chef judges. best remarks- subtle but witty.
Does anyone else think Danyele has anxiety? I know Top Chef is stressful but your nerves are holding you back Danyele.
Chef Hugh, your dry caustic wit is a hoot..Thanks for the entertainment.. This is better than the tortilla soup I just made!
"Kristen giggles and the innuendo between them continues like a pesky form of herpes." Simply, awesomely hilarious Hugh!! These two kids are so cute, its making me sick! LOL
Wow you are a great writer and very entertaining. Now I am going to spend an afternoon reading all your blogs when I really should be out doing last minute Christmas shopping. Dang you Chef!
jelliebean I did that last year when I discovered this treasure-trove of wit. How had we missed it. Where is the Top Chef publicist? Give this man a book deal. If half of the Bravo housewives have book deals...Hugh certainly should. Combination recipes and blog? I want credit for the idea.
TondalayoSchwartz jelliebean Good to see I am not the only who's postponed my oh so important "clean-the-house-before-the-year-is-over" to read Hugh's blog.
randypenn Stefan is acting inappropriately. He's done this before. Kristen is a beautiful young woman trying to win a competition and not make him an enemy. She is being harassed. Not good. I think her giggle was a nervous one, not one of amusement.
I agree Tondalayo. If Stefan is your enemy, he will go out of his way to make every thing you say and do look bad.
