I liked the QF $1 appetizer challenge. Shows you what a little ingenuity can do. Thought they did well with such a limitation. Granted, they had Whole Foods-quality food, but that could only mean they had to watch their bottom line even more - a dollar at WF buys you far less than it would most anywhere else. Naomi getting immunity with an asparagus bread salad was quite a coup - there wasn't even a protein in that dish, was there? I thought Alex's squid dish was going to win - it looked the most delicious to me. I also liked the look of Hugh's Salade Lyonnaise (anything with a poached egg on it gets my vote.) Tho Hugh continues to bug.
The fast food EC was a train wreck, but I was still impressed by some of those dishes - Floyd's beef Frankie, in particular looked great. George was rightfully sent home, in my opinion - his looked awful - skewered clams? Although they said they were properly cooked. Alex's salmon tacos sounded bad too - i have to agree that it's my least favorite fish choice for a taco.

sigh... bring on the hate.....
Can't people have fun with this show anymore? I haven't latched on enough yet to be rooting for a particular Chef, but I'm still enjoying the show, tho I know many here aren't. Maybe it's as some have said - it came too quickly on the heels of TCAS. You used to be able to build up some anticipation and desire.....
