'Top Chef' recap: Food Fit for an Evil Queen


The Top Chef caravan stuck a flag in Austin and moved once again... back to San Antonio, where we started this circuitous culinary adventure through Texas. At this point, does anyone care about the change in location? The next time Top Chef chooses an entire state as its inspiration, they should set their sights on a less geographically expansive one, like Delaware, known for its crab puffs and Scrapple. (With the Wikipedia blackout it was way harder to look up "Delaware state food" just now.)

Location aside, the Quickfire Challenge was a rather ingenious one. The chefs had to choose three ingredients from a moving conveyor belt and use them all in a dish. The longer they waited to pick ingredients, the more likely they were to nab good ones but the less time they'd have to cook them. It was like playing a game of chicken against the clock and the conveyor belt gods-elves. I seem to remember a Mario Party game sort of like this. Fast Food Frenzy, anyone? Read More....
