Winners – Erika, Eric and Yigit. See, Seth, even plating issues can get you in the top if you stay cool. Good job, Yigit. Erika claims to love tequila, Elvis tells her how beautiful it was and well constructed. Faulkner loved the clear tequila sauce. Eric is given high praise from Théoden on the moist cake. Faulkner tells Yigit that it was colorful and cold and Théoden loved the texture. Erika wins, and deservedly so. I even love how she adjusted to miscounting her plates, so she cut her dish in half. Doing so enabled diners to see what was inside, and I think that helped her presentation. Erika says everyone should watch out, because here comes “Sassy Momma.”
Losers – Malika, Tim and Seth.
Tim – Told it was a soupy mess within five minutes. Tim suspects the brulee was a problem and caused moisture to seep in. Elvis thinks it was a shame because Tim has the sharpest palate. Gail called it curdled soup.
Seth – He won’t stand behind the dish. Théoden thinks he is being too harsh on himself. He gets a lot of criticism for doing too much, having blue cake and just being too scattered.
Malika – Théoden says it was just too darn sweet. She was going for airy and tart, and clearly failed. Elvis suspects time got in the way. Again. She admits she should have altered the plan, instead of covering with sweet.
Tim gets sent home – everyone is sad. Not sure if that was all for Tim, or if it was having to deal with Seth some more.
Next week – Cheerleaders. Bake Sale. Friggin Chaos. Someone takes all the peanut butter. A shaky table. Seth hates the Stew Room. Something involving butter cream. And “you can really taste the resentment.” Mmmm, resentment.
