    Many a times Dinner: Impossible fans have heard Chef Robert insist that he's not a baker, that he dislikes baking tremendously (does anyone remember Night Shift Impossible or Puerto Rican Predicament?). I think this episode was unforgiving (forget the baking!), and not because, by nature, sugar is unforgiving. First, Chef Robert was completely puzzled by this mission. He spent an hour alone in the candy store, and you can see just how stumped he is, along with David and George attempting to size up a menu. Second, they leave to the store without a menu (a first - I believe - for Dinner: Impossible). Then, to be stuck in traffic was to be expected I think in good NYC form. You could just feel your own stomach churn when Chef Robert said his stomach was in knots. You could just feel simply anxious when Chef Robert said he was "in the weeds". You could feel yourself kicking your shins when Chef Robert admitted he bit off more than he could chew. And when the chocolate separated (major loss) and they had to 86 the polenta, the only thing you could do was to follow Chef Robert's advice: "you gotta keep smiling - because that's what we do". And indeed, having admitted defeat in front of many (he was 24 minutes late), Chef Robert put on the most marvelous smile and gave Dylan (the store owner) a great big hug. What does it matter if the "quesadilla was confusing", Chef Robert was a winner in the end.moreless
