"Chefs Carmen Gonzalez, David Burke, Marcus Samuelsson, Monica Pope and Thierry Rautureau serve up fare for a birthday bash for Mekhi Phifer and his friends."
What a great broad spectrum of food knowledge! The Quickfire Challenge is one of Kelly's favorites - they have 20 minutes to make a Grilled Cheese sandwich. And she's doing the tasting this time - no other judges for the QF!
What an amazing sounding group of GC sandwiches! Loved the "Shine, shine, little sandwich!" from Thierry. :-) I loved the ingredients in his sandwich the best.
And Monica wins the QF - the one with the 7yo daughter who also likes to cook grilled cheese sandwiches. :-)
The EC is the birthday party (catering) for Mekhi Phifer. He's a fan of TCM...he wants the Masters' version of soul food. Monica's advantage is that she gets to choose her protein first at WF, and no one else gets to choose it - she chooses shrimp.
