'Top Chef' is down on the farm Season 7, Episode 5

Quickfire Challenge: Create a dish using Maryland blue crabs. Andrea's crab salad is considered too weighty, Amanda's gelee is "out of balance" and Kevin's chowder doesn't have enough crab, so those are the bottom three. The top three are Ed, with a Thai-inspired dish; Kenny, who made a trio of crab-infused dishes; and Angelo's Asian-influenced broth. The winner is the one who best showed off the crab, and that's Ed. It's awesome, because Angelo feels threatened, since Ed beat him at his own Asian game.

Elimination Challenge: Work in one team to create a meal for a group of organic farmers using local ingredients. They have to produce six dishes, so it makes sense to split up into pairs, and they just go with the same teams as the last challenge (only after Angelo and Kenny fight about it for a while). Everyone is happy except for Ed and Tiffany, who wanted to ditch their partners and hook up (apparently in more ways than one). And yet somehow, even though they worked in pairs, each chef has an individual dish? I found this part very confusing; maybe when I rewatch, it will make more sense.
