Top Chef recap time!
Charlize Theron is the shit! That is all.
For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were paired off into 3 teams of 2: Ed/Paul, Lindsay/Sarah, Hair Accessory/Grayson to squared off in a food relay. I love this sort of thing, separates the boys from the cheftestants. Clean, peel, devein 2 pound of shrimp, shuck a barrel of corn & make fettuccine. All right, de-pooping shrimp! The faster to complete the relay, the more time spent on making a dish w/ the shrimp-corn-fettuccine. Ed/Paul were disqualified for not plating their shrimp, leaving HA/Grayson to take the prize money. Remember when the cheftestants used to get an extra edge in Elimination Challenge when immunity was off the board? Though I suppose the cheftestants would prefer the cold hard cash that the show is doling out. Sarah is also a spoil sport, obviously they lost out because guest judge Cat Cora hates tarragon...obviously.
For the Elimination Challenge, the teams of two had to cook head to head for block party making the same tasty BUT healthy dish. The 200 hundred party guests chose the winning dish. Stupid HM was beset by wasps. He handled it fairly well. Had I been there, I would have screamed and run away. Winning the day was Paul and his yummy Korean BBQ. Grayson got called out for making boring chicken salad. I don't think chicken salad is wise to make on hot day at an outdoor venue. HOWEVER, I would say chicken salad is as fun and exciting as anything else. Getting the boot was Stupid Hair Accessory for crappy boring chicken salad :D
Next week: Peewee!
