It’s time for a Top Chef recap and we will all get to see who is coming back from part one of Top Chef Last Chance Kitchen. It’s time for the Quickfire but first, Ashleigh rejoins the competition. Then, half of the chefs must pick a sweet ingredient and the other half have to pick a salty one. At first, I agree with Luke that you can’t go wrong with pork rinds. And they we find out they will be competing in pairs to make a desert. Oh, no Luke. You actually can go wrong with pork rinds. LOL. Ashleigh teams up with Luke. She has ginger snaps. Maybe they could do a cheesecake with a pork rinds and graham cracker crust? I dunno.
Budda seems to have a huge advantage, he has been a pastry chef before. He should make macaroons! Damarr and Monique are making cornbread with corn ice cream. That sounds… interesting. Jae and Jackson are making a poached pear with some kind of cookie. It seems like everyone did great. Nick and Ashleigh, pork rinds and ginger snaps is in the top three of some very strong dishes. Damarr and Monique’s corn ice cream and cornbread is also in the top. The final team in the top is Jo and Evelyn were also in the top. But Nick and Ashley won! I guess it is true, you can’t go wrong with pork rinds. They both have immunity and $5,000 each!
Then they draw knives to be assigned famous Texan women. There are two people with each Texas woman. It is an individual challenge. Evelyn gets Selina and she is thrilled. But, how do politicians inspire a dish? They are all sent home with a dossier about their chosen Texan. This is a dumb challenge.
The Elimination Challenge
I think this is Evelyn’s challenge to lose. She is a huge Selina fan and that is who she drew. Damarr also has Selina and he is trying to make tortillas for the first time. It’s not going well. We can’t lose Damarr! Some of the judges know the the judges who are being celebrated. Budda is worried about his chicken. Evelyn is running very low on time. Evelyn and Dammar are up first. Selina’s sister and drummer are up first. Evelyn’s dish and Dammar’s went over well. Jae cries when she introduces her dish. Sorry guys I am distracted tonight. Jae and Ashleigh’s dish, particularly Ashleigh’s did not go over well. So it’s a good thing she has immunity.
Next up is Budda and they love his chicken dish. Especially Tom. Luke’s dish they did not care for. Up next is Nick and Jo. They are not a fan of Jo’s shrimp and grits. They do like Nick’s dish. Next up is Monique who made a fried oyster dish. Jackson made a made chicken with an offal ragu. Tom is pissed about Jo’s decision to cut her oysters. They didn’t care for it. They loved Jackson’s dish. But,Padma isn’t a fan of offal. The guest judges all cast one vote for the winning dish.
The Judges Table
Evelyn, Jackson and Budda were in the top three. Evelyn won! YAY! Monique, Ashleigh and Luke are in the bottom. I think Monique is in trouble. She cut her fried oysters. Ashleigh has immunity. Monique is eliminated. In other words, let the vagicide continue.
Sorry, I am off my game tonight. If you’d like to wat LCK you can do so here.
