Round of 8: Love's
The ladies completely lost the point, as
Slim takes a bitter pill, leaving Masterchef to the eight remaining. And
they're dressed up to the nines, because they're off to a wedding.
Among the three judges we have 31 years
of marriage... and six months... Graham. It's all about 230 guests and
the couple of the day. Make them remember it.
Lee won the Invention Test, so he'll
choose the teams.
BLUE: Lee, Jake, Mike, Tracy
RED: Sharone, Whitney, David, Sheetal
And that leaves Sharone with a bitter
taste in his mouth.
Each team will cook 115 apps of Caesar
Salad with Goat Cheese Tartlet, 115 entrees of surf & turf with mash,
fried onions, and steamed veg. The judges will decide who wins based on
time management, kitchen ability, and above all, taste. The Blues will
cook for the groom's side, while the Reds will cook for the bride's
This is no rehearsal... This is real.
Three hours to prep. On the Blues, Lee is a very organized leader. He
knows the skills of his teammates. Now let's see him act on them. On the
Reds, Sharone emerges as the leader. He takes charge of the salmon. With
Gordon watching... and immediately, he's back to his old bitter self.
That's not good.
The guests are starting to arrive, while
the Blues are under control. The Reds... not so much. Sharone has to
pull them together if they are to have any chance of winning. Remember,
every plate comes out with love. David ends up playing the QC role on
the seasoning of all the dishes. The cracks start to show on the Blue
side as Tracy's lettuce doesn't pass muster.
Now that the man and the lady of the hour
have said their "I dos", apps are due... and both teams are starting to
crumble. So much so that Gordon and Graham are JACKETS ON!
The Red Team, under Gordon's tutelage,
get the first apps out. Graham's blue team, with setbacks in the lettuce
department, are stalled. Reds are beginning to hold up on the entrees
because they don't know where the salmon is. Meanwhile, both teams
finally get it together as Joe canvasses the floor for opinions. Good
stuff all around.
But still, it's a challenge. Someone has
to win. Someone has to lose.
There is one small difference.... and THE
RED TEAM delivered it. David's attention to detail and the seasoning
propelled him to hero status.
We're making fresh pasta and fresh sauces
that culminate into one fabulous dishes. And today... the stakes have
just doubled. TWO people are going home on the back on this test.
Ninety minutes.... from NOW!
Tracy: Ravioli Bolognese
Jake: Stuffed Calamari with Marinara over Fettuccine
Mike: Fettuccine with Roasted Peppers in Mushroom Cream Sauce
Lee: Roasted Eggplant Ravioli with Caper Berry Sauce
Remember... TWO are going home. Right
now. Mike... is not one of them. He's safe.
Tracy... is not safe. She's going home.
Jake... joins.... Tracy. He's going home.
And Gordon's rather pissed, because he was one of his favorites to be in
Only six remain. Who'll rise to the
top... and who'll fall flat?
