100% agree, Jenise, and is it "conventional thinking"... that's the exact term - I hadn't thought of that! What a risk BV took with his choice of protein and it was obviously wonderful both visually and on the palate. I thought this show would be the one.


Yes, conventional vs. cerebral. Like on that quick fire, a judge who may not understand Mexican food at all picks the seared scallop sitting on the black bean sauce because he likes scallops, instead of seeing into the cook's mind and recognizing the creativity and technique required to create and deliver a 'taquito' with a sliced avocado wrapper. And obviously it was one of the best tasting too--but it lost because the judge understands a simple scallop better. Must be so discouraging for him! But at least Sang is out of the way now.

September 18th - best show without a doubt. Liz and I were fortunate to watch the episode with Chef de Cuisine Graeme Ritchie.
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.

Oh Jon, I'm so envious! I can hardly imagine how fun that was for you--great episode, and Bryan's genius was finally rewarded. Can't wait for the finale. I'm sure that the win will come down to Brian and Doug, and while I wouldn't begrudge Doug anything I am, like you, rooting for Brian.
