Gail Simmons poses with host Curtis Stone and guest judge MIchael Chiarello.
Mike and Antonia were at odds on 'Top Chef All-Stars,' and now it's time to settle the score.
"Since I'm such a nice cousin, I"m going to let Antonia go first." Mike lets Antonia pick the first duel. . .
"The only rule is you have to use rice and it has to be a ball." Antonia lays down the rules for her rice ball challenge. She's a rice ball pro -- as Mike knows since he dined her restaurant prior to the challenge.
"Are you making the same thing that's on your menu?" Mike tries to ascertain Antonia's strategy, but she's not giving her secrets up just yet.
"I was forced at a young age to make hundreds of these things." Antonia explains how rice balls are a part of her family heritage. A delicious part of her family heritage.
Onto Mike's challenge, in which he makes Antonia speed clean a slew of seafood before making the meal.
"Mike Isabella is out being a huge celebrity chef these days. I don't know how much time he has." Antonia's throwing some serious shade.
"I learned a lot of things from you -- like a lot of things not to do." Mike teases his mom about the lessons he learned growing up in the kitchen.
"She makes the best pasta in America" Mike praises his wife, who is acting as his sous chef for this challenge.
Mike's plan for the menu is to bring some very modern twists to traditional Italian dishes.
"Carbonara is my favorite pasta. I'm excited to play with the flavors." Antonia is in it to win it with this challenge, serving up an egg yolk ravioli.
Meanwhile, Mike is confident about his chances with this challenge. "I'm going to win. I'm going to take my food to the next level."
It's all civil as the families sit down now, but once dishes are served, will they start a food fight?
"Dominique, how was it being in the kitchen with Antonia?" Curtis looks for insight on the kitchen dynamics between Antonia and her brother.
Gail is excited for two of her favorite chefs to return to the Top Chef Kitchen.
"Holy sh--. Oh my god, I never win!" - Antonia is blown away by her win.
Antona and Mike embrace after Antonia's win. #CousinLove
