Why hasn't LCK been recording lately for me even though I have it set? Last two weeks now it's been missing and can't be found via streaming. Bravo website wasn't working for me but I'll have to try again.
During the Quickfire, Gregory had access to his notebook and he was flipping through it? Really? Are chefs allowed to use their books? I suppose I guess so, although we never have seen it during the actual competitions. We see them writing in them and planning, but never used as a reference. I'm sure these chefs have tons of books in their bags that have recipes, ideas, etc. But you can't really use them, right? I think in Masterchef, there was speculation that cheftestants could reference recipes etc. Always wondered how these chefs know instantly how to make stuff, the exact measurements for baking, etc.
Karen was just a hot mess. She doesn't have the sophistication that any of the remaining chefs do. A little surprised to see her power lifting all that weight, especially because she doesn't look the healthiest.
Voltaggio's appetizer looked the most authentic and delicious. Rooting for this guy to win.
One of these days I will make it to n/naka. I hear reservations are almost impossible to get. During the pandemic, they're selling bento boxes that sell out immediately.
What a random collection of athletes. I guess they're looking for ones that live in Los Angeles. Kerri Walsh, ok, she's recognizable. Diana Taurasi, of course. Natasha Liukin (sp?), I guess everyone probably forgot about her until this show. And the others, I have no idea. Track and field stars, it seems? None of them seemed particularly knowledgeable about food. The African American track guy seemed to know nothing and it it was his first time eating duck? It's not like it's foie gras. If he's never eaten duck, he probably wouldn't be a good guy to have on a food show. Mike Tirico? OK, he's the Olympics host. He made one non-food comment at the end but just so random.
