S04.E02: Recipe for Disaster

Recommended Posts

Quote

The crew's first beach picnic of the season gets off to a very rocky start, ultimately leaving Colin shattered and empty-handed. Meanwhile, Chef Mila faces her biggest challenge yet, baking. And Hannah realizes Mila may not be up to the standard she’s used to. Joao continues to have growing pains in his new leadership position as he attempts to get his deckhand Jack in line. After surviving their first charter, the crew heads out for their first night out when one crew member's shocking revelation leaves a lasting impression.

Airs June 10, 2019.

Gotta love the chef playing with her hair in the kitchen... ugh... I imagine Craptain Sandy will love the Chef, since she seems to love the crappy staff...

I would die before I’d serve that shit dinner to the guests. So far it appears Chef Barfy has no business cooking on a mega yacht.

That was fun!  Nice finish with Chef Barfy's homophobic little rant.  

These guests appear to have no clue what first class is like.  This isn't it, yet they seem happy.

That microwaved meat looked tough, unless they have really dull knives.

"Naughty schoolboy slapping me ass on the bridge" lol  Jack's pretty useless, but I love the accent.

Who owns the property at the private beach?  They need a better spot.  Ugh.

Chef Barfy is incompetent.  An hour late to throw that lunch together.  What has she been doing since breakfast, where all I saw was some ugly thick sliced meat?

No tequila!!!  Then throw 2 bottles at once?  And try to catch them together?

Toss them both out of the frat!  Then of course karma blows up a storm.

"I'm not a butcher, I'm not a baker"  She's barely a cook.

I made better cakes in Home Ec class with powdered milk and eggs in high school.  Duncan Heinz makes a great cake.  As Ana showed, it's not that hard even from scratch. 

Now she's insulted the guests know she didn't make the cake,  Stop it!  She escaped blame for that dreadful icing job.  Almost as ugly as the nachos.

Aesha is pretty weird.  Colin, google NZ Kiwi, it's your friend.

Mila.  Just.  WOW. I'm trying to understand different cultures and Russia definitely is not friendly to all.

Good for Hannah and Joao!  So far?  No poking or pushing buttons.  Also?  I think Joao is doing great.  Professionally and personally.

But Mila?

This season looks like it's going to be pretty interesting.  I like the interior crew.  Ok.  Kiwi girl is a bit strange but at least she's upbeat.  Ana seems like a great worker and she actually should be the chef at this point.

Exterior?  Joao has definitely improved since last season so far.  Fake teeth is lazy and I don't find him all that cute.  We'll see if he lasts the season.  I've always like Collin.  The other guy I'm not too sure about although I did appreciate him in the van with Mila's homophobic remarks.

I think she totally lied and never attended any cooking school. Maybe she was the housekeeper who cleaned up after the cooks. But, I doubt she could do that competently either. Just hope she is gone soon.  Looks like next week she is serving :

Canned tuna with mayonaise.  I could take over her job cooking stuff like that.

Vodka soaked tampon? What’s with this potty mouthed stew...

Aesha is the one who worked on Phoenix 2.

I'm bringing this up because Sandy will probably lay into someone for giving her attitude or making a face later in the season, but Sandy missed that Mila  completely wanted to stab Sandy during Sandy's remedial lesson on plating.

With the previews for next week, I'm doubtful that Mila attended one of those brief Cordon Bleu seminars. I don't know that I could confidently say she watched a YouTube video about the Cordon Bleu. Canned shrimp and crab? She gave those guests between 8 ounces and a pound of mozzarella in those caprese salads. The preference sheet said cobb salad, not club sandwich. Why does it take hours to make 5 club sandwiches? How much baking soda did she put in that cake? Her plating is truly awful. And she's a homophobe.

I agree with Travis, Mila is an oxygen thief.

Jack is unbelievably lazy. Colin is a dope. Joao is actually tolerable.

It's hard to guess, because it looked like she was using an ordinary drinking glass as a measuring cup.

yes - she asked either Hannah or Anastasia if they were using the glass or, it could have been a cup - I don't remember.  They handed it to her and she proceeded to pour ingredients into it and dump it in the bowl.  I don't know what ingredient it was - it could have been flour, sugar, or something else that is white.  Possibly baking soda?  Apparently, she put a lot of it in that mess of a cake.

Those caprese salads needed less then half of the hunk of cheese she used (pre made/ store cheese of course) cheese is fun to make using your own curds or FFS you are in France home to some of the best craft made cheese in the world.

The woman is obviously a plant for Anastasia to take over in the galley. If not WTH!

They have to rehabilitate Sandy, Hannah, and Joao's relationship with the audience and each other.  Mila was selected to do that.  She creates the drama while they are making the returning cast look better than they left them last season.  It also gives them a challenge/obstacle to work together to overcome.

Mila is definitely a challenge/obstacle to overcome.

An obtuse one at that. What real "chef" would want to be shown on national TV like that? The money must be really good.

I'm loving Travis so far. "...a janitor on a floating toilet".   "Oxygen thief".  Yes! He's kind of sexy too. 

Aesha, and Anastasia are totally hitting it out of the park. What a nice change from the incompetent losers from seasons past.  

Speaking of incompetent losers...Mila. A homophobe, a lover of Putin, and a shitty cook. Can we request she walk the plank?  Also how does she  not know how to make a good vanilla cake? That is basic baking. 

The guests were an absolute dream. What a sweet group, and very easy to please. I mean they loved the food!!!

Only just watched this and haven't caught the comments here yet. 

Did anyone notice just how fckn hot it was as the beach picnic got rained out? 39 degrees Celsius is pretty much unliveable. I wouldn't be wanting to eat those cold toasted sandwiches on a rocky beach. I'd be in the salon in the aircon. Wait. There's aircon, isn't there? On a mega yacht? 

Sounds like Mila doesn't know there's a difference between baking powder and baking soda. I bake for a living and another thing you don't do is get cavalier with your measurements. A tumbler isn't a cup in a recipe. She probably put Tablespoons instead of teaspoons of baking soda and if that cake had not been in a sheet pan, I doubt it would have risen and it'd have tasted like soap. And yet. She wanted to serve it. 

Mila was lying or uncomfortable when talking to toothy Jack about living in Paris to pursue her dream of culinary school. She got all shifty in the eyes. 

And Good God she's serving tinned shrimp and tinned crab. Why not call it a day and order in a truck load of what we call in Australia 'seafood extender /crab/fish stick '. The next charter are obviously more discerning, imagine that nachos being served to that bunch of high maintenance women? 

I see Mila getting shitcanned next episode. We saw someone getting fired and Sandy's words were 'your position is now redundant '. If Anastasia is in the Galley, then Mila is redundant. Goodbye Mila. Go take a sensitivity course before you sojourn beyond the borders of your home country.

I liked the episode. I like the way Hannah took seriously her goal to communicate better with Sandy.  SO far os good with the interior. So I wonder why in previews for the season Sandy is pissed off at interior.

Because Sandy isn't the best judge of character, or for who is actually getting the job done.

Mila thinks Hanna is being fake with her but it was just the first charter.

Hanna is perfectly capable of being blunt and vile to other people.

Sandy was blunt with her and she claimed she respects that.

Then in the van, she was straight out trolling that guy, knowing the things she was saying would upset them, like "I love Putin" because he didn't let gay people be open about their sexuality in Russia apparently.

Her soul is just as disgusting as her cooking.

So not only is Mila incompetent but she's a homophobic asshole to boot.  Lovely.  Looking forward to her quick dismissal.

Enjoying everyone else so far, even Joao & Capt. Sandy, surprisingly...

Mila for making my food porn look like a plate from the freshmen dorm and having the personality of a puddle of vomit, huh, much like her food.

Or BRAVO hiring her to be the first female chef in the Below Deck universe, don't tell me that wasn't on purpose.

True.  She's a plant and not the only one.  They don't cast this show for competency at luxury yachting.

The difference is that they went too far and are flirting with breaking the forth wall.  Everyone is watching, thinking I don't know how to cook but...I know that made the dish look look disgusting...I know not to do something so gross that it would shutdown a restaurant on camera...I may not be able to bake but I can follow a recipe...I can cook enough to use fresh ingredients instead of boxes and cans.

She made those homophobic comments dead sober while smiling.  It came across as pre rehearsed.  She was looking for an opportunity.
