Whew. So glad that my Avishar and his Ohiootto skated through over Kiki's raw chicken. Not sure that Avishar knows but risotto is the death knell of Top Chef contestants. His dish sounded good enough but gummy and undercooked. Basically, you cannot cook risotto in 30 minutes. He should have known that. I was thinking, as an Ohioan, he should have cooked up a delicious pork, Ohio apples, and sauerkraut dish. But maybe that is not in his wheelhouse.
ETA: forgot sauerkraut is a veg and so was forbidden. OK, apples only.
