The winning sous chef works for Sang Yoon, so they received immunity. Meanwhile the rest of them scrambled to make a dish in thirty minutes using the ingredients that had been prepped(pomegranate,celery root, lamb and squid) without any extra time for finishing up what wasn't completed.
Then the Elimination Challenge was announced,which was to make enough food for two hundred people to be served at a booth in the Asian Night market,a celebrated pop-up restaurant.
The dish had to be an American classic with an Asian twist,something that worked out better for some than others.
The broth that accompanied his gyoza dumplins with chicken feet and snap peas had the judges oohing and awing with delight.
Even Judge James Oseland(who hates any mix of savory with sweet) adored this and was happy to give Douglas his due during the Top Three table discussion.
Sang won ten grand for his charity,Worldwide Orphans,a cause he got into after finding out that his father built many orphanages during his life time but keep quiet about it with his family. Nice to see a son take up a father's cause in his own unique way.
Sadly, the fish meatballs she served on top of the rice noodles was far too soft. One of the judges referred to the texture as gluey,not the kind of style you would want any kind of meatball to be.
Her charity will still get a nice donation but she was doing so well here,especially in the opening rounds. Sorry,Jenn,better luck next time!
Her backstory was showcased,which revealed that she had been a noble woman nursing poor folk during the Plaque and was dying of it herself when Eric found her and had Godric save her. I had a bit of a flashback to a certain season of Angel, where Darla's past as a prostitute dying from VD contributed to her being resired. Not accusing anyone of copycatting here,but it is awfully similar in tone there.
How Eric is going to take his revenge on the vamp camp(now run by a vengeful Sarah Newlin) should be something to see,particularly with Billith at his side. There are only three episodes left, so the wait won't be long:
Damage done to the local water tower caused some panic regarding the local supply of water(a quick check on the lake proved to be disappointing,as the waters were contaminated by a propane spill). Folks decided to stock up on what they could at the grocery store but things went to hell fast and a full fledged riot broke out.
Sheriff Linda and Barbie did what they could to keep the peace yet being outnumbered by frantic shoppers and devious types out to take advantage of the situation lead to an untimely end for diner owner Rose:
Angie had escaped Junior's clutches and made it to Rose,only to be attacked along side her. However, she did get a strong stroke of luck as Barbie managed to rescue her and brought her outside where more than one person could see her. As the riot quieted down(due to a sudden rain storm) Big Jim offered to take her in and when Angie woke up, he made her an offer that she may not refuse.
At this stage of the game ,it may be wise to have Big Jim owe you a favor or two. Granted, her options are limited there but if she plays her cards right, Angie might have both of the Rennies exactly where she wants them. With CBS greenlighting a second season of the show, this could become a major plot thread as time goes on,so let's wait and see,folks:
CUTTHROAT KITCHEN: Alton Brown hosts a new cooking competition series on Food Network,starting on August 11, where the culinary hijinks promise to keep everyone on their toes and then some. Should be fun but will it be the next Chopped?:
