Lorena thinks the kids are nervous and shy. Kerry’s girl grew up in the restaurant biz.
Kerry tastes the dish his students made- Chicken Florentine. Chicken wrapped around string cheese. He is, basically, mortified to be eating STRING CHEESE.
STRING CHEESE?!?!?! EW!!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently, Kerry hasn’t heard anything about childhood obesity or that many kids in the US do not have access or means to get fresh, healthy foods. Not everyone was born with a ball of fresh mozzarella in their mouths… Nevertheless, Kerry thinks he can help them improve on their dish by making a more delicate and interesting stuffing? He could stuff it with babies. Babies are delicate.
Lorena’s kids made Lasagna with a salad. “Lasagna. WOW!” all phony like they are 2 year olds.
Chris’s kids made pork with sliced apples and a apple brandy sauce.
Chris sat down and talked quietly with his students. He explained to them what pigs in California (when raised properly) eat. They eat the apples and hazelnuts that fall from the trees and feed on watercress in the fields. So that’s what they are going to do. They are going to make a simple, delicious meal without a ton of ingredients.
Chris explains that he was not a good student. He was voted most likely to wind up in prison.
Anne Burrell! oh, wait, no, Chris Cosentino
He had a learning disability, but he understood hands-on stuff- like cooking.
JoJo tells Lorena that this was the first time he has made lasagna. Lorena needs to find a way to elevate this dish.
The teams have 30 minutes to shop and $300.
On the way to shop at Whole Paycheck the three teams had completely different experiences. Chris and his kids just sat and shot the sh*t.
Lorena was explaining to her kids how they could make a lot of money.
If you play your cards right, you can work at Taco Bell too
Kerry talks to his kids about “The Godfather.” Neither of them had ever heard of it and looked like they both wanted to jump out of the moving car.
At Whole Paycheck, the usual frenzy, didn’t happen. They all shopped as teams. Kerry said “I could either explain everything, or I could rush through it.” We aren’t sure what route he took.
Chris explains that great food doesn’t need to be complicated- simple is better. As they pass by Lorena’s and Kerry’s shopping baskets, Chris says “Notice? Notice?” The other teams’ cards are overflowing with stuff. Chris’s teams cart is not nearly as full. Chris asks Emilio how he feels? Emilio replies “Sweaty.” And he’s not even in the kitchen yet.
