Still a wee bit disappointed that my boy Bryan didn't win but honestly I loved all of them and it definitely went to the most deserving chef. Melissa just rocked it. Outside of the salad fiasco at camp, she has been solid all season long. I've lost track of how many QFs and ECs she won but it has to be a record.
Poor Bryan. A bridesmaid yet again. And no fan favorite for him either, after being in the lead right up until the end! *sigh*
But as he said, he made it to the final round three times and no one has ever done that.
In the first course, I wanted to reach through the tv for Stephanie's crispy shrimp thing.
In the second course, Bryan's lasagna looked amazing. Rich and meaty.
There really wasn't much in the third course that spoke to me but I wanted ALL of the desserts in the fourth course.
Happy to see Malarkey just put aside his ego and just be whatever Stephanie needed. He was kinda awesome.
All in all, a very satisfying finale. I'm sorry to see it end. I wish we could just watch these three cook forever.
