  • Robert has to feed 1200 people a dinner without sugar or salt, then when that is not bad enough, has to make a special dinner for some of the VIPs and finally another special dinner for 12 for charity. When things got worse he finds out he lost 30 min.moreless

    I know all about how casino kitchens are laid out and this was hard enough with all the ingredients but to lose sugar and salt made it tougher. The kitchens are laid out in the outside of the casino and surround the gaming floor so there are long stretches between them.

    I liked how the chef got very creative with the chicken dish and chorizo, and all his dishes had his own flair.

    Making the special dinner for 12 was trying, but then losing the salads and having to scramble to replace them with something quickly is why Chef Robert is the right man for the job.

    This show is so much better now he is back.moreless

    • (After adding Parmesan cheese to the mashed potatoes.)
      Robert: That's almost 15 pounds of cheese in that one batch to substitute a handful of salt. That's scary.

    • Robert: 1,200 people, over 7,000 hors d'oeuvres, an elaborate sit down dinner, and now I've just found out they moved the cocktail hour half an hour up. I started in the weeds this morning, and the extra half hour they've just taken away from me just leaves me in the swamp.

    • Robert: This mission is totally out there. No salt and sugar? They're staples in the kitchen. So we're having to substitute with soy sauce, honey, hoisin sauces, and I hope that the food tastes as good as if it were with salt and sugar. (to the camera) No pressure, right?
