This week Top Chef contestants had to create a dish for the CIA. The guest judge for this week was Wylie Dufresne.
The Quickfire Challenge: This challenge consisted of identical ingredients for each chef inside a "Mystery Box" (fish, lima beans, and a can of hominy). Tiffany's fish stew came out on top for the challenge. She won another $10,000 making her have a grand total of $20,000 from a previous win. She definitely has enough money to pay for her wedding now!
The Elimination Challenge: The contestants had to serve a "Meal in Disguise" to the CIA. The top dishes of the challenge were Kelly's Kung Pao Shrimp, Tiffany's Gyro, and Ed's Cordon Bleu. The winner of the challenge: Miss Tiffany Derry once again! Congrats Tiff! This challenge came with a prize for a free trip to Paris, France courtesy of the Hilton Hotel. Honeymoon - check!
Although Ed was hoping for a win, he was happy for Tiffany. I'm sure his girlfriend will be very disappointed but hopefully she won't have too many hard feelings...
The worst dishes of the week were Amanda's French Onion Soup, Alex's Veal Parmesan, and Angelo's Beef Wellington. Unfortunately Alex's tough veal and poor dish cost him and he was elimnated. Alex definitely did not have enough experience cut out for him to win this competition.
It's time to say farewell to Alex and wish good luck to the remaining cheftestants!
