  • For anyone who has traveled and eaten airplane food, it now becomes a lot clearer why it is not the best. Interesting take on cooking, but it was a worthy episode.

    This whole show had twists, with Padhma waking them up and having them make her breakfast was entirely something new. No guest judge with their preconceived ideas, this was different.
    The breakfasts were for the most part incredible, and convincing Padhma to like steak and eggs that dish had to be really good.
    Cooking airplane food is a lot more difficult that we think. Even with the best starting ingredients making reheated food taste good and fresh is a lot harder than it seems. The dishes as they said were all over the place, and some of them were reheating related.
    At this level part of the competition there were some bad decisions still being made. As the judges commented that more than one of the dishes should never have been served. I did not pay too much attention to Casey early as she did not appear to be much of a start, but lately she has shown just why she belongs there. She is not playing it safe, she is playing to win. She might make a bad dish next week, but it will be because she tried to make something tasty and not conservative.
    CJ sorry to see you go, thought you and Padhma were going to have breakfast in bed, just kidding.
