Final Elimination Challenge: Just like last season, create a meal that celebrates their journey to becoming a chef. The first dish should be inspired by their first food memory. The second dish should be inspired by the dish that made them want to become a chef. The third dish should describe them as a chef. The usual critics (minus Gael Greene) are joined by Tom Colicchio and last season's three finalists.
So here's their food:
Marcus: First course is smoked char with sweet horseradish shellfish broth and mashed root vegetables, which are flavors he grew up with. Second course is salt-cured duck with foie gras ganache, sour tomato jam and aged balsamic, based on the time he had to cook Christmas Eve dinner for his family when his grandmother was sick, and everyone loved it. Third course is berbere-flavored hamachi meat balls, porcini couscous, and sea urchin froth, in his effort to bring African cuisine onto the culinary radar.
