Thought I'd be first to start the thread, even though judge's table hasn't yet begun. Liked the quickfire -- a one-pot dish is a solid task. I would have given the nod to the paella, which really is a one-pot dish, over the cauliflower with something seared over it, maybe one pot, but two stages with the first part put aside.
What I liked about the episode is how the cheftestants came to the assistance of those who were most hurt by the fridge fiasco. Funny how both of those ended up near the top; really made me feel good. [yes, judge's table is occurring as i type] I'll get out now.
