Okay, I *really* hated the way they did this LCK. CJ and Tyler walk into the kitchen and find out Koniko is the chef they'll go up against. They have a few laughs about what went wrong earlier and Tom says that part of being a top chef is working with people so they'll have to team up again. I thought for sure that each of them would take one of the other three chefs sitting there but no, CJ and Tyler are a team against K. That's just stupid. The obvious reason being two people can do more in 30 min than 1, but also I just think at that point, it's each man for himself. Whatever, continuing on.
K. makes some sort of fruit cut into odd shapes with compressed frozen banana (something like that) and lemon curd served in a bowl. CJ & T want to do new world vs old world, T is making cherry fritters and CJ comes up with hay ice cream (I still don't get it, and they have hay sitting around in there?) with some chocolate and not sure what else. Arugula is in there too. Tom liked both but thought K's dish wasn't presented that well and there was a lot going on. She said she wanted people to get a bite of everything every time. Tom thought the other dish worked surprisingly well but had too much arugula. He goes with the two guys. I don't mind that they won but the whole two people thing pisses me off. And as CJ said, I hope he doesn't have to stay in a team for the next round.
Bad bad bad LCK.
