Tang & Dippin' Dots

Top Chef recap time, my lovelies!

Angelo continues to skeeve me out totally. So, homeboy got divorced last year & is already engaged to another woman who lives in Russia. Anybody else thinking mail order bride?

Anyways, for the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants had to create a dish and pair it w/ a wine of their choosing. And on the bottom were Kevin's monstrosity of quail and Merlot. Originally, Kev was going to braise a pork belly to go w/ the Merlot but SHOCKINGLY he did not have enough time to finish it. And by the by, what's up w/ the pork belly this season. Pork belly is this season's scallop.....or foam. Speaking of which, Kelly sucked and made a crappy bleu cheese foam. EEWWWW!!! Stop w/ the foams! Icky icky icky! It looks like baby spit up. And winning the Quickfire and a trip to jolly old London was Angelo's white wine and foie gras. Can't go wrong w/ goose liver. Hey, Angelo, London is closer to where you live now. Maybe yr pseudo girlfriend can meet you there?

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to create a meal that could be freeze dried and sent into space. And looky look, there's Buzz Aldrin..... & Tony Bourdain. I love love love The Bourdain. He was surprisingly less snarky this time 'round. The big winner was Angelo. Oh c'mon! He made sugary short ribs! And the NASA liaison specifically said not to make dishes that had too much sugar. Shenanigans! And packing it up was Tiffany. Say what now? I'm not a big Tiff fan but I thought for sure that Kevin was going to get the chop.

Next week: Sing-a-bloody-por! In case you don't get this reference, please do yrself a favour and watch the awesome film "Wish you were here".

Seriously, I can't believe Tiffany went and Kevin stayed. Bourdain had it right - this is Top Chef and he grilled a sirloin. Kevin, me thinks your days are numbered.

Did you catch Bourdain's No Reservations 100th episode this week? He and Ripert ate some amazing looking food in Paris.

Jon: No, sadly we can't afford cable but since I've heard so many good things, I think I might download it illegally.
