Top Chef Episode 7 – Food & Wine Giveaway #TopChef

This is my a recap of  Top Chef Episode 7. Recently, I have become addicted to this show. First off I have to say that Bart is  my favorite and whom I am routing for. The amazing dishes he comes up with give a sense of home and spunk. I can not  imagine being in his head. If I ever have the chance to come close to one of his restaurants I have made a promise to myself that I will stop in and enjoy the strangest combination on the menu.

With that being said, I do not like Josie because I feel like she isn’t taking the opportunity seriously. It is not fair for her to still be there this far in the show when there is others that really show a concern in winning and trying with every inspiration in them. Many do not like Stefan, though I think he is hilarious and just abrupt. He knows what he wants and he makes pretty fabulous food. A bit arrogant but I feel he has the talents to be a bit arrogant.

While I will not give away whom won the quickfire or the elimination rounds I will say I like whom went and who won. I would like to see Bart in the contention but that is probably cause I favor every items he makes even if the judges do not approve. In the quickfire round they have to cook only with Reynolds aluminum foil and absolutely no cooking utensils or vessels. I was pretty impressed that Bart even made a strainer. In the elimination round, the chefs are whisked off to Remlinger Farms to cook with berries. Some of the combination were non-edible and others were fantastic! Kristen with the tayberry was a brilliant exposition of the berry. Bart’s Blackberry Soup with Salmon and Rhubarb Yogurt sounds amazing and like he says it would definitely pair better with crab in my mind then the salmon. If you have not had a chance to watch the show you must! My family and I have become addicted to this show. The show Top Chef Seattle is on Bravo on Wednesdays 10/9c (November 7th 2012 to March 6th 2013).

    Hmmm, seeing as I don’t really watch Top Chef, I would have to say that my absolute favorite holiday recipe is my uncles Cajun fried turkey! It’s a tradition in my family and has been ever since I was a little girl. Pretty much, it is a lot of butter and Cajun spices and deep fried in peanut oil. It’s cones out so juicy and flavorful! Never gets old!

    My favorite holiday recipe is panettone! Am eating some now, but this one, I didn’t make, or buy locally–I brought it back from Italy. Much fresher than what you find here.
