Kerry is making Korean Shrimp with Eggplant and herb salad. The critics think it’s ok. The shrimp was overcooked but his “performance” was good. He tossed some peppers up into the air. And Pee Wee loves poopers up the air.
I love when “hot junk “flies at my face
Whoops, I mean peppers.
Lorena made a fried rice with chicken, kaffir and cilantro and it had a sauce made of Orange Juice, Soy and Guava. It looks beautiful and she is entertaining on the griddle, but it isn’t seasoned.
CARDINAL RULES: always look at what you are cutting and SEASON YOUR FOOD!! In culinary school whenever I would have a test, I wrote on the top of each page “SEASON” so I wouldn’t forget to put that in my answer.
Susan Feniger even said “If this had been seasoned, it would have been my favorite dish.”
Hot Stone even asks why none of them tasted their food? Were they embarrassed? Lorena thought it to be rude. Mary Sue said “It’s like cooking with one hand tied behind your back.”
Team Yellow is second to compete. Patricia’s Mole is concerned. Clark is dropping whole trays of dishes, breaking them. Takashi realizes he has bought the wrong flour for his savory pancakes. But he must keep going.
Takashi begins to cook his calamari with savory Japanese pancake. Patricia quickly jumps in to help him and one of the critics ask if they teamed up on a dish? And Patricia says “You don’t see me!!” She just wanted to help Takashi. Ok, I’ll fold her up and put her in my pocket too. But her mole is not coming along. That thing scares me. Takashi’s pancake is a little gritty, as he thought it might be.
Clark makes Lobster with orange sauce. He notes that the grill is only hot in limited areas. Yeah, like, the surface.
Patricia makes Beef Kalbi lettuce wraps with a chile and red bean paste with a touch of agave. When she is done she tells the critics that they are going to do a “Dance Routine” because they were told they had to put on a show, and proceeds to “strip” off her apron.
Anyone up for a lap dance?
Patricia’s Mole, apparently is a part-time exotic dancer. Rick Moonen wants to tuck a buck, but the Yellow Team’s time is up.
Speaking of stripping… check out this picture of Mark and Clark circa late 80′s
The critics didn’t like Takashi’s gritty pancake, thought Particia’s beef could have been better marinated and seared and Clark’s lobster was underseasoned.
Team White should be called Team Hat. Seriously, why are these guys wearing hats? Art wants to make food with an emotional feeling and has a connection to his past. Their strategy is to NOT cook Japanese food, which I think is smart. They are going to cook their own food, on a Japanese cooking surface. Notice, they are the only team to do this.
