Another night of fun and Vegas heat.
( Bravo never thought to not film this during the hot months ?!?!)Congratulations to Chef Michael for his cactus quick fire. We will let you make your own cactus jokes in the comment area below.
and to Chef Bryan for his desert elimination win. You are on a roll Bryan.
Here are a few comments from Chef Tom's blog regarding the challenge.
"First, let me digress and say that what I liked about this challenge was the chance to get off the strip. There’s a vast desert out there, and it was neat to see a whole different side of Vegas. What didn’t work? The heat. It was too hot to cook, too hot to eat … that heat was obnoxious. And while the idea of cooking over an open flame was nice in the abstract, in actuality the “fire pits” were propane, so they were no big deal to cook on. The other thing I didn’t like about the challenge was that it was too open-ended. The chefs were not asked to do anything food-wise that tied into their being on a ranch. Yes, it was a fun idea to have the chefs sleep and cook in the great outdoors, but as with the use of cactus in the Quickfire Challenge, I would have liked to have seen the challenge more closely connected on a food level with the life of the ranch. Interestingly enough, not one cheftestant cooked steak. I was so surprised by that."
Ah Mattin... Chef Biatch is not happy about this. We wish you the best and hope you drop by our little kitchen.
So fellow fans... what did you think?
