    I loved this show from last season. I wrote reviews of each show but found in order to do that, I had to take notes. I will stick to the forums this year.

    The six chefs were paired off. The Quickfire challenge with ingredients from the convenience store was hysterical. I noted the scores. While one point between first and last is not that much, it makes a big difference in the end.

    The Elimination round was a dish for a first date. Interesting. Also, the pairs remained for this part of the competition. Everything looked delicious. There were a pair of duck dishes, two of lamb, then a combo of truffle pasta and shrimp/scallops. I felt the duck dish that was not cut up would not score well with the judges. I thought everyone loved the lamb, but was mildly surprised that the pasta and seafood dish took the day.

    Well done. Can't wait till next week.
