okay, so even after my tipsy phone calls, i managed to stay up and watch the repeat of Top Chef.
i missed the quickfire though....i'm sure it will be on bravo sometime this week.
the elimination challenge was food that tied into a movie. because they had guest judge Richard Roper (chicago movie critic).
i was surprised by the willy wonka food. they said it was really good but i would have thought more whimsical and a lot more chocolate but at least they played up the "fizzy lifting drink."
i thought of preppygirl when the one team did A Christmas Story. chinese christmas dinner.
I really thought that most of the teams chose odd movies and the link from their food to the movie was weak (i mean, really, making beef and saying it was inspired by Top Secret??). It got me to thinking about what movie I would do and I have a list:
1. my first thought was Under the Tuscan Sun and I would make some kind of olive dish
2. Silence of the Lambs: duh..Lamb and favre beans
3. Lady & the Tramp: spaghetti and meatballs (too corny?)
5. Soylent Green (could be a pesto sauce of some sort) would be funny to plate it with different shapes of pasta to make a person.
care to add any to the list?
btw. the dude who packed his knives has so far been pretty forgettable so no surprise that he got Das Boot.
