Top Chef - Las Vegas - Ep. #8 - 10/14/09 (Spoilers)

So Charlie Palmer is the Guest Judge this go-round, and the Quickfire is the "Art of Pairing" - they have to incorporate an Alexia Snackfood into their dish.

Quite frankly, not surprised Kevin was in the top group in the Quickfire - his dish sounded absolutely wonderful! Eli and Brian were also in the the bottom group was Robin, Ash, and Jennifer. She looked REALLY worried that her dish was going to be overcooked; sure enough, it was.

The Elimination Challenge? End each drawing different knives for various pork cuts for Palmer's Pig & Pinot charity event. Jennifer got a wild card, so she got to choose her own cut - and chose belly (the same that Eli drew - that ought to be interesting!)

Then they got to pair with various pinots at Palmer's restaurant...Eli seems a bit cocky. Will be interesting.
