And finally there was Josie, who, again, wasn't ready with her dish. Once she finally served it her pork was dry. Come on, Josie! Get it together! The judges' waiting was making me physically anxious.
On the bright side, the chefs loved Kristen's fancy dish and Sheldon's sour tamarind soup. I looove tamarind, so i would love to try that. Thankfully, Filipino food is fairly trendy right now, so I will likely be able to get a chance. Kristen made a point that Gail found particularly great -- that her concept was formal, and that's how she prefers it. In an era where everything is rustic, or homey, etc. it's nice to hear someone still going for the formal side. I love a formal night out, so i appreciated this too.
The winners, Kristen and Sheldon, had to select their teams for next week's episode -- Restaurant Wars -- before they knew who would go home. It worked out that they selected men vs. women. Aaand, Micah goes home. So, it's four against three next week. Bye, Micah! Good luck in Last Chance Ktichen.
Next week's episode is outta control, so until then, Have a Nosh! And, let me know in the comments below what your restaurant concept would be and what dish you would have created to represent it.
I would name my restaurant "Eclectic". One definition of "eclectic" is "composed of elements drawn from various sources". So, I would make turkey and dressing, but I would put the dressing in a waffle iron, then serve turkey, mashed potatos, and gravy on top of the dressing waffle, taking a "traditional" meal and presenting the meal in a different way.
The rest of the food on the menu would be playful, presenting the food in a different, eclectic manner, just like the turkey and dressing waffle
The men's team may be down one chef but the women have to deal with Hurricane Josie. I give the men better odds to win.
I HATE having the teams compete so unevenly in next week's RW. It takes it away again from being about the food and is instead gimmicky. NOT the way to go Bravo TV!
Just think Josie's out of second chances....... According to all the judges, her food was inedible....... She should have gone home........
