Top Chef CA Episode 7: 10th Anniversary - Spoilers!

MplsM ary | Jan 22, 201606:54 AM

This episode was all about looking back and celebrating 10 years of Top Chef.

The quickfire was judged by the lovely Antonia, and it was a weird one. Each of the 10 chefs had 20 seconds to pick one ingredient from the pantry and all the chefs could only use those 10 ingredients. Thankfully someone chose salt, and another chose olive oil, but for a bit it seemed like everyone was just looking to get their protein pick into the mix. I was actually rooting for that kind of screwup to see how they'd handle it. Jeremy took 1st place with beef carpaccio.

The elimination challenge: the chefs were supposed to look back 10 years and create a dish based on where they were at that time. For some it did not go well. Kwame was at sea and I hated seeing him struggle so. Marjorie (yay!) got the win with a green curry (sans lemongrass!) and Jason tanked it by under-seasoning his trout.

EW write-up:
