Funny how Rachael and Giada couldn't just describe their dishes last night when they got to the judges' table - they had to run through the entire recipes! ("First I fried the onions...")
It was interesting to see their technique (or lack of it!) for what it really was - not that either of them claimed to be pro chefs. Wonder why the judges went so easy on them, though.
I think Batali & Ray deserved to win, even though Rachael's bucatini looked really dry and unpalatable - like it needed a huge splash of, uh, EVOO. The other team's cranberry risotto seemed like a terrible idea.
