Antonia – Lorena liked her balance of sweet and spice, Tom wished for bigger pieces of conch but liked his fish sear. Padma thought the dish was too conventional, but Antonia defended that, stating that simple is her style. That’s what she wanted to make. Good for you, Black Hammer. Gail thinks it is great that she knows who her customer is and how to please them.
Blais – Padma and Tom rave about the non-pasta pasta. Gail thought it was bold to make a dish that wasn’t of the islands, but still contained local ingredients. Gail liked his take on linguini with clam sauce, and Tom stressed how great the “twist” was. Blais refuses to believe the lobster was undercooked in any way.
Tiffany – Lorena thought it was cooked well, but…Gail and Tom each essentially say that they liked her idea, but the cold soup ruined it. Tom also wonders if it would have worked with hot soup in the first place, he doesn’t think so.
Mike – He used a curry mix to make the dish work, and Gail fawned over the pineapple again. Tom was a big fan of the smoky flavor produced by the leaf and while the butter was not tropical and made it a bit greasy, it was really good.
So Mike gets the unexpected win, and is loaded with confidence now. Tiffany is the clear last place dish, and she knows she lost. She goes out with great class, as expected, and admits to being out-cooked.
Next week – The Last Supper, minus the whole about to die after being betrayed by a friend thing. Pressure cooker problems. Something is rancid. Padma is sorry about something, and what’s in the mystery envelope?
