Top Chef Masters: Curtis Stone Discusses George’s Elimination

May 10, 2011 01:00 PM by Lisa Princ

If you tuned in to Bravo‘s Top Chef Masters last week, you watched as George Mendes was eliminated as the judges were not crazy about his pork skewers. After his elimination, Curtis Stone managed to gush about the chef despite his poor choice this week. Keep reading for more details!

George Mendes definitely did not make the best choice on last week’s episode of Top Chef Masters, but it was also not the flavor got him eliminated as Curtis Stone blogged recently “When I had George’s pork and chorizo skewers, I felt sorry for him, because he was in a tough spot to serve that as fast food. I admire that he chose to stick with a fine dining approach despite the fast casual environment. Unfortunately, however, it was his demise as the critics found it to be the weakest dish.”

While Curtis goes on to say that he doesn’t disagree with the judges that it was the weakest dish, he has nothing but love for George’s cooking as he gushed “I want to say one thing about George: If you’re ever lucky enough to eat at Aldea in Manhattan, you will be blown away. I think George is one of the most talented chefs in America right now and his food is outstanding.” Curtis also mentioned that Celina may have gotten lucky last week – wonder if she will be as lucky this week? We’ll have to tune in tomorrow to find out!

For more on what Curtis Stone had to say, check out his blog on Bravo’s website. Then be sure to tune into tomorrow at 10 pm EST on Bravo for a brand new episode of Top Chef Masters!
