The entrees were all kind of meh, but I did enjoy watching Ty-Lor and Heather cheer each other on. Maybe we referenced their friendship in the premiere, but I couldn't remember. I was excited to learn that they're such good friends.
The desserts kind of cracked me up. To the chefs' credit they were given direction to think like a fat kid, and, um, with the exception of Edward Lee they did. In fact, Ed's facial expression when given that instruction was so priceless I want dot make a .gif of it. And still might! I'll keep you posted if i get that done. As I said to Gail, the desserts reminded me a lot of Stefan Richter's finale dish and Ilan Hall's gluttony-inspired dish from Season 2. They just made no sense to me. It was sweet upon sweet upon sweet with little balance. I actually had high hopes for Edward's dish, even though he didn't' quite listen to the hosts, but apparently it wasn't executed well.
And so amongst a bunch of lackluster dishes, Chuy goes home with his salmon and cheese dish. I ddn't make the connection to lox and cream cheese till Gail said it, but for some reason they seem so differen to me. Admittedly, I hate hot salmon (and goat cheese isn't my favorite), but the thought of eating hot fish with goat cheese grossed me out. I was, however, shocked to see Chuy go, in that I thought he'd go much farther in the competiion. Luckily for him, he gets another shot in Last Chance Kitcheb. We'll see how he does.
Until nxt week, Have a Nosh!
This segment in Dallas makes those of us who are born and raised in Texas look bad.....It is the thing that makes folks from Texas cringe.....Can't wait for Austin cooking....
Agreed on the dining experience at Chef Besh's August restaurant in NOLA. One of my all time favorite dining experiences.
Last time I had one of my all time fav dishes as my hot apetizer at August : Squash blossom stuffed with some herbed ricotta cheese and tempara fried served with some pickled heirloom tomatoes and basil aioli. I wanted to literally lift the plate up and lick it at the end!
American, those hoity toity Dallas snobs are not real Texans. Yes, Vicki...let's show them all when Austin airs.
I wish we could see more of chris crary in the shows!! Hes got such a fun personality and love his creativity
As a dallas resident, I was so disappointed that these were the people who were chosen to "represent" This is not what dallas is all about! They are the worst of dallas' fake high society. This challenge should have been a fundraiser for one of the many children's hospitals in Dallas or some of the many people who "do good" here - not some plastic surgery ad with three couples who are obviously living on old family money. 1200 wedding guests? yuck. They knew nothing about cooking....what an embarrassment for our city.
This is one of my top shows; I almost had to turn this episode off. What a sad choice of people to be shown paired with today's up-and-coming hot chefs. I feel for the people of Texas that this was the face shown to the world...let's hope this was just a hiccup in an otherwise good season.
