ABC's "The Taste" is proving once again that L.A. chefs have some serious game. On Tuesday night's episode, L.A. girl Khristianne Uy kicked some serious butt when she turned sweet breads, bone marrow, pork tongue and pig ears into a masterpiece.
The episode was all about off-cut ingredients, with chefs David McMillan and Frederic Morin of Joe Beef, Liverpool House and McKiernan Luncheonette in Montreal acting as guest judges. For the third week in a row Ludo Lefebvre picked annoying Gregg Drusinsky to represent the team with his spoonful of head cheese, royally annoying everyone. The dude blew up a pressure cooker full of pig face, in his own face and sliced some of his finger off. Way to go, pro. But the judges picked him anyway and he won immunity again! Diane "Cruella" DiMeo blurted out, "You've got to be *&%!ing kidding me." I was thinking the same thing.
For the elimination challenge, each chef was given 2 hours to cook one spoonful using an off-cut ingredient of their choice. Lefebvre's team had the advantage with McMillan and Morin as mentors but Paul Caravelli chose to ignore his mentors again. He did the same thing when Lefebvre tried to help him earlier in the episode. Come on, man, you've got a serious attitude problem. If you know everything, then why are you on the show?
