(*SPOLIER ALERT*–Don’t read on if you want to be surprised at what is in the basket)

Episode Name: Chop on Through

With a fruit and a root in the first basket, two of the chefs go with a similar approach for their appetizers. Will one dish turn out better than the other? Then in the entree round, a cut of meat with a peculiar name gives the judges something to talk about, while the chefs rush to get the main dishes made. And Camembert is the fromage of choice in the dessert basket. Who’s cheesy, sweet creation will be most pleasing to the panel of experts?

    JMac shoulda got into the dessert round. I think the fact that the other 2 contestants were accomplished chefs with restaurants in NYC, and and established reputations to protect, that swayed the judges to give Johnny the short end of the stick. That round could have gone any of 3 ways in my opinion. Great job Johnny, way to represent! :weightlifting:

    I fully agree, the brotherhood of New York Chef’s reigned supreme. I particularly didn’t like the remark that although his dish was delicious, it was “staff food” not a menu item. Creole food by the way has a much broader range than New Orleans. What about the whole Caribbean, Creole people abound along with their cuisine. Stupid comment from the newest Iron Chef!
