Service starts. The Blood Soup is a hit!
Blood soup? Are there, like, Vampires here?
Patricia’s Perfect Bite IS Perfect, Clark’s duck wrap is underwhelming.
Mark’s sesame-crusted salmon is raw (but the Bride got a cooked piece).
Art’s cake is leaning.
Chris’s banana leaf braised pork with better greens gets a “Pretty Damn Good” from Pee Wee (James Oseland).
Death of a Cake, in four scenes
Art’s cake is REALLY leaning. He has to fix it.
Remember Chris? Who Art was yelling at about putting his bones in the oven? Yeah, well… the first person to come to Art’s aid with the cake debacle? CHRIS. Well, Chris and Patricia, but Chris. Because it’s a crisis and in a kitchen everyone HELPS. Chris and Patricia quickly make more icing.
Scalpel? I need 300cc’s of fondant STAT
Art’s cake is a fustercluck and it’s an “all hands on deck” situation. Everyone pitches in. Art has never had a cake fall. But the show must go on.
Art is tremendously embarrassed , it is almost, literally, an upside down cake. The chefs are LITERALLY holding it up as it’s wheeled onto the floor. The critics find the cake a little one-note, but the Groom loves it.
The Chefs retire to the “Whine Room,” SCF enters, the judges want to see Takashi, Patricia and Chris.
Are we the best or the worst?
At Critics table, they announce that these Chefs made their favorite dishes!!
Takashi made the perfect, rich satisfying little pork belly sandwich.
Patricia’s spoonful of ceviche was a “revelation.”
Chris’s adobo was brilliant.
So who won? Patricia and her mole. Is anyone else distracted by that mole? I know she can’t help it, but it is distracting me. Regardless, YIPPEEE, her dish looked great.
The Critics want to see Mark, Debbie and The Cake Boss, Art. Actually, that cake made Art its bitch.
Not Russian Nesting Dolls… The Bottom 3
• Had Mark’s salmon been COOKED it would have been a good dish.
• Debbie’s charred salad was odd, and it was TOO charred.
• Art had some obvious architectural problems. Puhleese… the tower at Pisa is more structurally sound. Art tells the critics that they should have seen the cake 20 minutes earlier. He surmises that it was his time to have a natural disaster and it happened on TV. He feels terrible. But the critics tell him that the biggest problem was that there was no luscious sauce as was expected.
