Antonia, I will break you.
Spoke with Tramonto and Cenitare Group PR guru Jeffrey Ward tonight. He says of the rogue scallops that brought Spike down. “…that was Top Chef’s product, not ours, for sure… “
1 – What’s with the crotch pads for butchering steaks?
2 – I can’t believe all the meat in the Allen Brothers plant. Have you see the prices on their stuff? It’s literally as much as most finished prime dry aged finished dishes at good steakhouses around town. I can’t believe they sell that much product.
3 – This is the first Quickfire challenge that actually determines how good a chef you are.
4 – Unfortunately, this means Spike has chops.
5 – Why is everyone wearing a hoodie?
6 – Nice Glad trash bag commercial. Do all their bags come with big fat logos on them?
7- Why would you take “frozen” scallops? Spike doesn’t use his advantage well, ever.
8 – Stephanie just said sweetbreads are like “a chicken McNugget if they’re done right.” She’s so right…which is scary, but the reality is that, all snobbery aside, most high end chefs are seeking to surpass the satisfaction of a crunchy moist Chicken McNugget with their platings.
9 – Did she just say peanut butter whipped potatoes? No way. Lisa’s going home.
10 – Richard finally comes off as human.
11 – I think hearts of palm, fresh or canned are overrated. They’re like the upscale tofu of the haute cuisine world.
12 – I totally dig that Ilan is rocking the t-shirt. I wonder if he’ll require jackets at his tapas truck.
13 – I feel Ted Allen got shafted this season in favor of Gail Simmons….of course this may just be Chicago favoritism.
14 – Damn, Spike called out Tramonto for having frozen scallops in his walk-in. Of course, Tramonto called him “bro”, and big-footed him.
15 – Rick’s cookbooks are fabulous. It’s actually a great prize. Not to mention the GE kitchen.
16 – Spike. He gone…eventually immortalized in the Jackie-O museum of iconic hat wearers.
