London Calling -- Pt. 2 - The top four chefs travel to the historic Hatfield House, where they must cook for British cooking royalty, Nigella Lawson; the chefs must cook a venison dish, but the judges throw a surprise twist at them, forcing them to think quickly.
Finally!!!!! Noah just rubbed me the wrong way...so cocky and such an oaf. His outfits were horrendous. I would die if I showed up wearing a garbage outfit to that estate. Show some respect.
So funny, Twitter was shocked that he poured cold stock into his risotto, I've never cooked it, but I imagine it changes the temperature and stops the cooking. If he took more than an hour to cook that risotto in Hell's Kitchen (the show) he would have been kicked out.
Nick is such a cutie, but Dorian is my girl. I think she might be getting a winner's edit. She's so relatable. But that might be my wishful thinking.
I just watched it. I kept away from here until I saw the show but was hyperventilating at the end. Maybe I should have come here first. . So glad for the final three. They all deserved it. In Noah's defense, he may have been wearing those outfits under producer orders. Either way, I'm happy he's the one who went home.
I loved that castle and the groomed grounds. And they rode up in a carriage (sigh) and cooked in a wonderfully updated yet timeless kitchen (sigh). Very happy with the final three. I am surprised, though, that Gordon called Dorian's Trifle the best of the night when Nigella said she needed more texture. (sigh)

I did some quick research to figure out who to root for. It confirmed what I already knew, or suspected. Usually, I pick "my" winner because of their skills as a cook and also how much I like them as people. This season, I like all three and think they all have amazing skills in the kitchen.
Nick will be fine whether he wins or loses. He has his Harvard degree and, Nick, along with a Harvard Medical School professor, has already started a company called Voodles. The aim of the company is to make pasta from veggies that taste enough like real pasta that kids will actually eat them.
Sarah works as a real estate agent. She has 3 kids and a husband who is a sommelier. From what I have read about her she does not have a strong desire to open her own restaurant. Like Nick, win or lose, she will do just fine.
Dorian works as a creeler which is a low paying, probably boring, job. Dorian is married with 4 kids ages 6-26. She dreams of being a cook/chef. For her, winning Master Chef could be a life-changer. I know some objected to her "meaness" to Subah but honestly, on team and group challenges, Subah would try the patience of a saint! Yes, when working solo, Subah is a good cook, but, when working with others that man was a total disaster.
I think, by far, Dorian will gain the most if she wins. But, I think any one of them can take the win and it will be well deserved.
Although I have seen CREELER listed for her as her job, I finally looked it up today and it is a factory line job in a textile mill. I do agree that a win will help her the most and while I like Nick the best, I certainly am fine with any of them winning.
