Top Chef: Just Desserts Recap: Erika’s Soapy Ice Cream!
Top Chef Just Desserts aired last night and Erika created some soapy ice cream.
The brand new Top Chef spin-off, Top Chef: Just Desserts kept things simple but elegant for this week’s episode on BRAVO. Gail Simmons returned as the host, so let’s get right into the “Black and White” episode, shall we.
For the Quickfire Challenge on this week’s Top Chef: Just Desserts episode, the pastry chefs would take on a savory dessert challenge. Gail introduced them to the guest judge, Michael Laiskonis (Le Bernardin) and them throws in quite a twist. The cheftestants would only be able to use 1 pot (nothing else!) to create their savory dessert.
Let the chaos begin! As Morgan rushed for the ingredients table, he leaves Heather with a bloody lip. Man, who knew that a pastry chef could be so damn violent! Gail walks into the kitchen and let’s everyone knows that his or her time is up. Now let’s see how they did with last nights Top Chef: Just Desserts quickfire challenge.
Michael Laiskonis declares his least favorite desserts that were, Danielle, Eric and Heather. The top 3 for the savory dessert quickfire were Morgan, Zac and Yigit. Zac of the team fancy pants or whatever the hell they call themselves took the victory and won immunity. However, Zac gave up his immunity for $5,000. (smart move)
Let’s get on to the Elimination Challenge of last nights episode. The Top Chef contestants will be catering a ‘Black and White’ party for the LA Times. Keeping with the theme of the party, the pastry chefs must create black and white desserts.
Once at the ‘Black and White’ event, the judges (Gail Simmons, Johnny Luzinni, Michael Laskonis and Dannielle Kyrillos) go from table to table to sample the desserts. Erika wanted to do something different and she managed to do that! Johnny let’s us know that her ice cream tastes a little soapy. Uh Oh! Soapy ice cream is probably not going to win you Top Chef: Just Desserts.
While Heather had a tasty dessert, she didn’t stay true to the Black and White theme and had a lot of red on the plate.
Once the Black and White party was over, it was time to head to the judges table to find out who won and who was going home on last nights Top Chef: Just Desserts episode.
The bottom three for last nights elimination challenge was, Heather, Erika and Danielle. The judges call in the remaining four contestants (men) and let them know they were the favorites. Yigit takes home his first elimination challenge victory and adds another win for Team Go Diva.
On the losing end of the elimination challenge was Erika, who was told to pack her supplies and go!
Tune in next Wednesday night when Top Chef: Just Desserts returns at 10|9c on BRAVO.
