Top Chef - S9E3 Postmortem
Well, I can't say that's how you want to see somebody go, buuuuut... yeah. His team could have and maybe should have saved him from himself, but the fact that he needed to be saved in the first place makes it a no-doubter.
I trust I'm not the only one who thinks the level of cooking, particularly considering that some of the chefs were undoubtedly unfamiliar with the nuances of the cuisine, looked pretty damn high. There were a couple of boneheaded moves, is sounds like the flavors weren't where they should have been on a couple of dishes, but aside from the enchiladas, did anybody completely fall down?
Could've done without the Snakes on a Plane reference. Not because I found it offensive. Because I found it dumb.
So what's up with no winner's circle?! That's a first, isn't it? Here's hoping the blogs will fill in.
Speaking of supplementary materials, just to space things out a bit I'm thinking making Last Chance Kitchen a regular Friday thing. Postmortem Wednesday, LCK Friday, Power Rankings Monday. Subject to my usual occasional delays and flights of oops.
More Monday (and Friday). Discuss!
