This week on Bravo‘s Top Chef Masters we watched the chefs struggle with fast food. After the episode, judge James Oseland blogged about what he loved and hated about the quick recipes. Keep reading to hear what James had to say!
This week on Top Chef Masters, the contestants had to create a dish and run a fast food restaurant in which we saw Mary Sue Milliken rise to the occasion with her delicious and healthy fritters. Afterward, James Oseland shared his thoughts on the meals in his blog gushing that fritters may just be the next thing we see at the drive through window as he said “They were a revelation, a health store ingredient re-conceived as flawless, eminently edible fast food, with a garlicky Romesco-style sauce that was perfect for dipping. I’ve never seen quinoa on a drive-through menu before, but now I wouldn’t be surprised if it starts showing up all over. A crazy idea? Maybe not: the fast food menus that I grew up with had (basically) three items: burger, fries, shake. Now you can get flatbreads, chipotle-rubbed chicken, arugula – it’s a completely different world. ”
James goes on to share that “this week’s bottom three were really unremarkable. Alex’s salmon taco was a flavor disaster, overly sweet and oddly seasoned, but at least he did some quick thinking when the chefs pulled up to the Farmer Boys, and revised his initial plan to better suit a fast-food environment.” As for the other two, Celina and George, James says the judges had a problem with the fact that they did not change their dishes to adapt to the fast food environment, which we all saw ultimately led to George’s dismissal.
