The Skill Drill
The first challenge of this episode was to duplicate a dish without any help. Chef Anne and Chef Bobby each made a complex meal and their teams had to try to replicate it exactly. The Chefs left the kitchen and secretly filmed them from another room.
The Red Team dish was a stuffed pork chop with broccoli rabe, and a potato/carrot mash. The Blue Team dish as a spiced rubbed pork tenderloin with a papaya salsa, bourbon sauce, and grilled corn salad.
Each team member took care of one part of the dish and they had 90 minutes to complete the challenge.
The winning person for the Blue Team was Melissa who successfully interpreted the corn salsa. The winner for the Red Team the entire group. Chef Anne Burrell thought the whole team did a fantastic job and everyone should be recognized for it.
The Main Dish Challenge
The elimination challenge was to teach the cooks how to throw a party. They had to cater a large St. Patrick’s Day event and supply 70 appetizers a piece. Both sides were to make 35 stuffed potato skins, each with a unique filling. Each person was then given an individual recipe to follow to create the other 35 hors d’oeuvres.
The party guests rated the contestants on their appetizers and decided the winners for the teams.
Anthony was given lamb boxty pancakes, Kelly was given cheddar scones with corned beef, Dorothy was given bacon and mushroom pies, David was given fried cod, Tiffany was given smoked salmon crostini, Vinnie was given Reuben sandwiches, Melissa was given grilled lamb skewers, and Benjamin was given crispy kale potato pancakes.
The winner for Chef Anne Burrell’s red team was David, and Anthony was eliminated.
The winner for Chef Bobby Flay’s blue team was Melissa, and Benjamin volunteered to go home. He was homesick and wanted to be back with his family.
