  • Chefs are to prepare a dish using black truffles and a rare wine.

    This episode was a sad one for me, because Lee Anne was eliminated.

    The Quickfire Challenge was to take a junk food and make it fancier, for a lack of better words on my part. Dave chose nachos, and failed. Lee Anne chose hot dogs, and made a japanese sausage that was well received. Tiffani chose the corn dog, and hers was also well received. Harold came out on top, with a popcorn dish that had the judges singing his praises.

    Harold rightfully won this challenge in my opinion, and Dave rightly lost. There was no question about this challenge.

    At the market, they all got their ingredients. Lee Anne got lamb, followed shortly by Tiffani, and then by Harold. Dave wisely chose beef.

    They prepared their meals, and when the judges tasted them, they enjoyed each, but found problems with each as well.

    At the judge's table Lee Anne was unjustly eliminated, in my opinion. Had she gone first, the outcome most likely would have been different, because the chef's palates would not have had lamb in them :(
