Since it was (wisely) suggested (IMHO) to have a new thread for this.
Good Lord but Courtney just annoys me more and more every week, even as I know I'm being manipulated to hate her. I just. The heels we had to keep seeing closeups on...I DO NOT CARE. I want to see the food, not the chefs' feet.
Yay Luca. Please just give Luca his own cooking show, I adore him. (I'm now about a dozen recipes deep into his cookbook and it is great. We had his Parsley-Garlic Pesto Vegetables tonight as a side dish for dinner and my sweetie was swooning.)
The whole thing with Tyler and the Panna Cotta just seemed...strange. I don't know how I feel about any of that yet, except that if it were a chef they wanted to keep around I am betting they would have decided to simply taste his panna cotta and judge on that, despite the plating error. And how odd that Jaimee's two panna cottas that she tried to plate were so bad, but the one that Tyler "took" looked good? I don't even at this point. It's hard to take any of it at all at anything resembling face value.
