Top Chef Masters "Episode 9: Old School, New School" (9/12/12) [*SPOILERS*]

Quickfire is a tag team challenge. One person at at time on the burners. Team Kerry and Lorena win it with the pasta (not the fish).

Elimination Challenge sees Patricia Yeo go bye-bye.

Chris Cosentino is champ of the Dinner en Blanc.

(Outdoor dining in Vegas? Outdoor dining in Vegas in summer?? WTF?)

  1. So sad that Garcia lady is still there.

    I can live with either Cosentino or Heffernan being TCM although I think I respect past finalist chefs on previous TCMs more.

      This season is such a yawner. Watching it is almost like doing homework.

        I'm not a fan of Lorena either, but I'm willing to give "her" (Peru's) potato salad (Huancaina-style) a try. Everyone seemed to like it.

      2. BTW, Dîner en Blanc's first foray into Asia (Singapore) had a serious kerfuffle and PR fiasco before it finally took place two weeks ago. :-)
        Google "diner en blanc singapore fiasco" and related terms if you are curious.
        (see for the "start" of the kerfuffle)

          1. Wow I didn't even think about eating outside in Vegas. Are you sure it was filmed in the summertime?

            I thought it was funny that the guests all LOVED Lorena's choc. mousse but no judge seemed to like it. On the other hand, it seemed like lots of guests weren't psyched with Kerry's dishes but he obviously was in the top 2. Lorena is definitely odd man out of that group.

            1. It's just too bad they couldn't have had two eliminations last night. Not my usual style, but I did want both women to go. They are both incredibly annoying and neither of their food looks very good.
