    Her Italian sounded absolutely lovely to me. Which reminds me-- the guest judge spoke only in Italian but they only subtitled it-- I assume there was a translator off-screen? Gail and Tom don't speak fluent Italian do they?

    also, while the brothers V were clearly among the most talented, Michael V was kind of an ass. So Kevin seemed like a mensch. He does seem a lot more entitled this time around.

    For someone who flies coach (to Europe or Asia for vacations every once in awhile, so I know I shouldn't complain) it looked like FABULOUS class.

    I guess, but for me, "meatloaf mix" (which is more or less what this was) just tastes like... meat. I would think, if anything, the pork and beef (was it?) would tone down the "boar-i-ness" flavor.
  5. It's not coming back. No great loss as far as I'm concerned. https://www.primetimer.com/item/Netflix-cancels-Next-in-Fashion-after-one-season-70Sa5Q?fbclid=IwAR0F-W2jaPvWAgu1Mh68n2OsFQmMPfY5b_z0iSVADanncM-Y__k8iQbMylY

    I hope you're not right. I'm not a fan of Kevin, but I was surprised that the judges remarked on the mix of three meats being bad in some way. I mean, that's pretty traditional for meatballs. Did the fact that it wasn't all boar mean that it was a *worse* match for truffles? I didn't quite understand that.

    congee is rice cooked in a broth for a long time until it essentially dissolves. It's something of a comfort food as it is soothing and easy to eat. I've never had white truffles (have had black once or twice). I assume they taste like very aromatic mushrooms, much like dried porcini?

    I was really surprised that didn't get mentioned in the judging! How do you hold the beer! I haven't quite finished but waited until Bryon's was tasted (since he's my fav) and it was clear he did well. I thought Gregory's sounded bad from the get-go-- it seemed like a very heavy stew to go with truffles without losing them. true-- but her Italian sounded pretty darn good to my uneducated ears.
  9. LOL I just learned this one. My sister-in-law has that haircut (and she's a very nice person). Should I tell her?
  10. My understanding is that she's a privileged, entitled (annoying) white woman https://www.insider.com/karen-meme-origin-the-history-of-calling-women-karen-white-2020-5
  11. If I recall though, he was inspired at the store with all sorts of fresh fruit-- which was not in the original dish. Later he mused that fruit and truffles (was it?) don't go together very well, which is why (I think) he separated the fruit from the truffles.
  12. Is it just that I "got used to" the sailboat, or is this boat REALLY big? The kitchen is rather massive! And it has both a "VIP suite" AND a "master bedroom" IIRC-- both looking really large.
  13. Her enthusiasm? She complained about *everything*
  14. what a princess! She doesn't like to clean, is annoyed that her boss is deciding her schedule for her, and thinks it's too much effort to acknowledge a request. But she thinks she's god's gift to men apparently.
  15. so that filet mignon, with the truffle risotto-- Not a single vegetable on the plate? That's just strange.
