Round 5 videos are in for this tough tough challenge. I asked all the remaining competitors that if they won, what ingredient would they like their fellow competitors to cook with? Well, some were kinder than others. Unfortunately for them, I switched the tables on them, and they got that ingredient to work with. Only Clement got a choice to use any of their choices, including Butch(crawfish) who was eliminated last round. These were their ingredients:
Using their main ingredient they had to make 2 spicy dishes. The first had to be either a soup, salad or appetizer, and the second was to be a main entree. Plus, they had to make a spicy dessert using America’s Pastime snack food- peanuts, popcorn and/or crackerjack. Their video time was also increased to 9 minutes. We are at 4 contestants, but soon we will be at 3. The Round 5 $50 prize from PeppersandMore.com is up for grabs. Only time will tell, as our judges have their work cutout for them.
