I thought our Italian stallion would make it to the final and that Stefan should have lost not only for his mistakes but his arrogance and unwillingness to work with others.
Sorry our Florentine friend had to go. He did infuse the mix with charm and wit, broken finger and all. Congratulations to Carla this evening for her win. She started slow and strange and is coming down to a strong finish. I think it all comes down to what next week’s challenge is.
It was good to see Gail again, refreshed from wedding, honeymoon and probably months of taxing preparations (that’s why we did ours in five days and called our folks afterward).
I don’t think one can have a chef judging in New Orleans without Chef Emeril Lagasse. I believe he knows when a roux is cooked to perfection.
To friend L.S. let me know your thoughts on this episode – y’all as well, of course! Keep on cooking, Dee.
