This time, our weary chefs had a little help in the form of eliminated chefs. Each chef was presented with a possible sous and a protein. Some chefs chose to make their ingredient choice paramount, while others chose based on who they did or did not want to work with (ahem, Marcel, ahem.) Ultimately, the sous-chefs were the most helpful to Antonia and Mike in that both implemented their sous' ideas and were praised for those particular elements in their dishes. Richard surely benefited the most in that he won the challenge with his play on surf and turf. Unfortunately, Dale went home. I mean, yeah, his dish was bad, and he knew it, but it doesn't make it sting any less. He starting crying, and I kind of did too!
Angelo's elimination last week, Dale's this week... I'm a broken woman! I don't know how much more of this I can take! Actually, I do, because I've gotten the chance to peep the next few episodes, and, well, they're kind of awesome.
So, tell me, are you as upset as I/Anthony Bourdain are that Dale's gone? And, I love hearing what you're cooking, and where you're eating, so keep sharing! Until next week, Happy Noshing!
