Normally on a Thursday evening I gather all my pictures and thoughts to review the first half of latest episode of TC Masters. I rather enjoy the Quickfires. They force chefs to be quick and creative on the fly. That is if they have the right inspiration. Sometimes Quickfires go bad. It could be an annoying product pimpage (Bombay Sapphire) or it may not be as well thought out as it could be (ice cream mix ins). Or it's just plain stupid.
This was just plain stupid. Make a dish you think your knife draw Simpson character would enjoy eating. The Simpson characters being cartoons. Maybe I'm alone in the belief that this was a stupid challenge. To me it's like Dan Quayle wondering what sort of baby gift to get Murphy Brown's baby.
This is Susur's entry. Susur is apparently under the impression that Marge would like to eat a Dali version of herself.
Susur did not win. Rick did. Any more commentary than that is just piling stupid on top of stupid. Onto the Elimination Round.
They brought back a great challenge from Season Three of Top Chef, the Exotic Surf and Turf. Before I dig into that part of the episode, I want to hear from you. Which of the following have you eaten out in a restaurant and which ingredients, if any, have you cooked with?
