'Portland-ia' - Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein task the chefs to create a dish using hipster ingredients, and vintage appliances. Then, the chefs must develop and create a recipe fit for a home cook. Dale Talde and Richard Blais join the judges’ table.
Enjoy the show!
ALSO: There is a 30-minute preview of Top Chef Amateurs on Bravo right after the show. I imagine it will be available at the Bravo website and on YouTube after that, and maybe on demand... (in fact tonight's recipe challenge may have been a kind of preview for it as well...)
I thought this episode was so much fun. I had a feeling that Maria and Gabe would do well in the EC. I am not sorry to see Chris go however, he should have gone a few weeks ago IMO.. bad pasta not just one time, not two, but three times! I also felt the bottom three were spot on, I honestly would have been happy to see any of them go, but Chris was past his time.
I did watch the preview of the Amateurs and I thought it was ok. I wasn't keen on the two contestants but I did like that they did do their homework and knew what to do or not do when presenting their dishes to the judges. I was shocked the one girl won given what was said about her second dish. I guess well cooked lamb and crappy rice pudding was better than missing rice and a well made, fun dessert.
