Top Chef 50s Food Flashback
29 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Last week Kuniko was eliminated with some of her fellow judges being negative to her.The continuation of last week was a fight between the chefs as every sees the most hated chef is not a nice person. The next day with some tension from some chefs others try to find the fun. The quick fire guest judge is top chef masters alum Naomi Pomeroy. The challenge this week is two primal cuts of beef. The chefs have one hour to cut and cook the beef. The chefs starts to butcher into the beef and while some find it hard to lift others start straight away. The least successful dishes are Lizzie, Eliza and Tyler. The favourites are Cj, John and Josh's. The winner of the quick fire is John. The elimination challenge this week involves going back in time. Mark and Brian Canlis come in to tell the guys of their challenge. They are cooking food from a 1950 menu. This week is a double elimination making it a top 10 at the end of the challenge. Once again the other chefs do not like John talking because he is too full of himself. The cooking starts and once again people have trouble in the kitchen. The first dishes go out and it is Lizzie to introduce the first dishes along with her dish. When Carla's food is sent out people do not seem to be liking it sending it pack to her. The second course is sent out to the judges with John introducing it. The dinner is ended with the dinner. The first three called in are Lizzie, Tyler, Christine and Stefon. Hugh the announces that the winner is Christine winning herself $10,000 for mushrooms and onions. The four go back and have to send in Carla, Crissy, Cj and Josh. While trying to defend himself Josh is very outspoken. All four of the chefs do not blame themselves but blame other people. The chefs asked to pack their knifes are Crissy and Carla. Last chance kitchen is back on and the one winner comes back to the finale. The fighting chefs are starting to make great television and tonight's episode just really worked for me.
