When the Chefs draw knives- Chris and Patricia are team Yellow with Chris on the hot line and Patricia in the pantry. They are, as always, excited to be working as a team. It feels like home to them. They practically finish each other’s sentences.
Team Annoying is Lorena in the pantry and Kerry on the hot line.
The Chef start immediately. Automatically the pantry chef, has, sort of, more running around to doing. They need to hunt and gather. Chris is instructing Patricia, although I’m surprised they don’t communicate telepathically. Kerry is barking out orders to Lorena, which, of course, she resents, because she feels like a sous chef… and she isn’t. She is Lorena Garcia: Taco Bell Chef. But she get Kerry everything he needs.
Get me a turkey pot pie!
Lorena, however, is very particular about her rice and is concerned because she can’t actually COOK it herself. Lorena’s dish has a Salmon that needs to be seared. Kerry tells Lorena that he can sear hers now, but he needs to sear his shrimp at the last minute. I’m unsure why he can’t sear some shrimp AND a few pieces of salmon at the same time, but he can’t. Lorena is NOT happy about this- and I agree with her. It’s another Classic Kerry D*ck Move!!! He is putting his dish first and it’s supposed to be a team effort. Lorena’s rice is undercooked so she hands it back to Kerry. After several requests, Kerry gives it back to her, but she doesn’t get it on the plate in time.
And I was planning to put cilantro all over this!
Kerry’s elements are perfect, Lorena’s are not.
Over at Chris and Patti’s, things are love and light. Birds are singing. There is a doe gently drinking water from a pot on the stove. Oh! There’s a rainbow and I think I spot an Unicorn over by the Kitchen Aid. Seriously, Chris gives Patti a complete list so she doesn’t have to run back and forth 100 times and Patricia, in turn, designs her dish so Chris can execute it easily.
Patricia feels badly for Lorena, having been the victim of Kerry’s nonsense a few episodes ago. Not only is Kerry executing ONLY his own dish with car, he’s making Lorena run around like a lunatic. Normally she just has to slap it in a tortilla and hand it out the drive thru window.
Time is UP.
Johnny and Curtis come in to taste the results.
First up is Chris’s Berber Duck.
Vinnie Boombotts doesn’t like fat on his duck
Johnny immediately says that there is too much fat on the duck and that it should have been rendered down further, Curtis agrees.He likes his ducks without cellulite and preferably a size 0.
You, clearly, have no idea what you are talking about.
