Last Chance Kitchen 1/1/14 spoilers

Carrie vs. Louis
Tom brings up the broccoli incident again and surprise .... the ingredient they have to feature is broccoli.
Carrie and Louis do a small commercial for the Toyota Corolla and its voice map features and head to Whole Foods to Shop. Carrie gets trout (which I'm not sure how or if she used it in her dish) and Louis gets some sockeye salmon.
Judging from the comments of Louis and the other chefs, they all have a lot of respect for Carrie's skills and didn't expect to see her so soon.
Janine gets a lot of face time, but actually isn't showing a bunch of leg for once.
I realize that at least 3 of the guys in the peanut gallery I can't name, and one I can only name as side show Bob.
Carrie makes a filled pasta with a roasted broccoli filling. When she is using the pasta roller on the kitchenaid mixer she doesn't have it fastened down tight at first and the whole thing takes off rotating. Looks like something I'd do. Her dish is well received.
Louis does Salmon with broccoli three ways.
Tom likes both dishes, really has nothing bad to say about either one. He picks Louis for highlighting the broccoli. Three more wins and Louis is back in the show.

  1. Why are they releasing these episodes earlier than the show episodes they are supposed to be paired with? Aren't they basically spoiling the main show by showing who was most recently eliminated?

      I watch both these and the main episodes on-demand, and the LCK always shows up before the main episode. Irritating.

    2. 2014, not 2013 LOL

      How long do we all take to remember what year it is? Although I don't write too many checks anymore :)

        1. re: coney with everything

          I just asked the Mods to make the change.

          And when I was at work this morning (before leaving because of the snow), every time I was inputting bills that were dated in December, I usually just have to type the month and day, such as 12/23. The accounting system would say "This bill is more than 30 days in the future. Are you sure you want to do that?" The system autofills the year, so I was forced to remember the 2013 part. ;-)

            I had to sign and date 508 documents on Thursday. I think I've got it in my noggin now.

          2. Carrie also got the eggs to make pasta, which I think is the way she went. I guess the trout went unused.

            Sideshow Bob is getting way too much audio time. And Sara seemed very stilted in the gallery when speaking with Tom C.

            I really like Louis. I would like to see him back in the main competition....but I think it's going to be a lot harder as the next few cheftestants are eliminated from the TC Kitchen.

              I'm so hoping Louis gets back in . . . Have I mentioned I love his smile?

                You might have done so once or twice, gaffk. ;-)

              2. re: LindaWhit

                Yes, he does seem to be coming into his own in LCK. IF he makes it thru the next few rounds he will be a force to be reckoned with when he re-enters.

              3. It was interesting Carrie bought a piece of trout and never used it...

                1. I have an idea for a new Top Chef program. "Behind the Scenes of LCK". It could be an internet/on-demand show if they don't want it on Bravo. We never did get to know the contestants who were PPYKAG early on.
