It was quite an eventful week on Top Chef where the first contestant returned from Last Chance Kitchen while another bites the dust. Melissa King served as guest judge for the quickfire, which like Jamie, was about second chances. The chefs had to take a second chance on a failed dish they had created either on the reality show or in life in general. The gimmick was they had to incorporate ingredients that are normally overlooked such as imperfect produce and less glamorous cuts of meat.
Afterwards, the elimination challenge was a team up between Top Chef and José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen. The competitors created dishes that would be served to frontline workers at three local hospitals. They needed to make 65 portions that could be packaged in to go containers that had a protein, vegetables, and a starch or grain. Their food also needed to be good when reheated since many of these workers have hectic schedules and can only eat whenever they can find a break.
See where all the chefs stand after the most recent episode.
