Where's the Kool Aid?

Time another action packed Top Chef: Just Desserts recap!

Sally is the only girl left which really blows because I despise her.

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were greeted by the world famous dessert chef Monsieur Payard and had to make the perfect pie....w/ one arm tied behind their backs. Cutie Pie DQ'd himself by accidentally touching his ramkin w/ two hands, WHOMP WHOMP! On the bottom were Sally's too tart plum & strawberry and chocolate poop mess & Chris' over creamed banana cream pie. Blech! I hate banana cream, the texture is all poopified or something. Three-peat QF champion is Carlos' quadruple berry pie.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to take lowly carnival treats and transform them into elegant desserts. What fun! Funnel cake, caramel apples, frozen bananas, ice cream sandwiches. Woo hoo! My kind of challenge. And on the road of redemption was Cutie Pie and his fried apple pie w/ apple "carpaccio" & vanilla ice cream. I've come to the conclusion that all fruit should be fried. And going home was the ever playful Carlos and his macaroon "hamburger" & churros "fries" a great idea but poorly executed.

As much as I love Top Chef, I really want this season to be over.

One handed baking? Seriously? That is the best they can come up with to determine the best pastry chef. Here's one for next week - they can use both of their hands, but duct tape their knees together and have them walk around the kitchen carrying pots of hot, melted sugar. Of course, the floor will be freshly waxed to make sure at least one chef falls. That kind of challenge demeans the contestants and makes the judges look ridiculous. You're better than that Gail.

I didn't think Carlos deserved to go. It might not have been the best dessert, but I thought it was clearly the best idea. I don't remember what it was (that memorable), but Chris's dessert looked the worst to me.

In the drunken ring of truth, I thought it was interesting that everyone had wanted to punch Johnny in the face at some time. He might want to be a little more careful the next time he walks into the kitchen.

Sally can't win. C'mon rhymes with cashew.

Jon: See I thought Orlando had the worst dessert, if yr making something based off of candy apples, then, ya know, you should try & make that the focal point of the dish. BLAH on him!

Team Cashew all the way!
