Top Chef Masters 2 Ep. #3 - 04/21/10 (Spoilers)

This is the episode with retreads from TCM1 - Rick Moonen, Graham Elliot Bowles, Jonathan Waxman, Mark Peel, Wylie Dufresne, and Ludo Lefebvre. Let's see if those Bravo teasers about Moonen and Lefebvre arguing is true or just that - teasers that we won't see in the actual show. Not that Bravo's been known to do THAT before, huh?

Quickfire Challenge: pairing a dish with Russian Vodka cocktails; judges are Gael Greene and the Housewives of the OC. The drinks chosen by the chefs are:

Lemongrass Mojito - Waxman
Nutmeg Applik Mojito - Ludo
Russian Tea Room - Wylie
Coriander Mule - Bowles
Ginger Figgle - Peel
Forest Fruits - Moonen

Four of the chefs got 4 stars, and one got a perfect score of 5 stars...the winner of the QF is Jonathan Waxman - the Pork Loin and Poblano-Stuffed Shrimp. AND he finished 20 minutes early in a 45 minute challenge! LOL

For the Elimination Challenge, it looks like they are tasked to re-imagine old-school pub grub, turn it upscale, and make it into something they'd be able to serve in their own restaurants.

Waxman - Shepherd's Pie
Ludo - Irish Stew (which he didn't want and it sounds like he's going to be whining about not getting Fish and Chips all night!)
Wylie - Bangers & Mash
Bowles - Steak & Kidney Pie
Peel - Toad in a Hole
Moonen - Fish & Chips

This ought to be interesting.

And I just noticed that Fiji Water is getting a lot of camera time.
