Crazy Chef Andrew sent home on Top Chef Chicago

Season 2 runner up, Sam Talbot was the guest chef this week on Top Chef Chicago. Sam, a diabetic and son of a police officer, asked the chefs to create sexy salads and healthy and hearty boxed lunches. Dale and Stephanie came out on top and won praise from the judges who said that their dishes were satisfying, great tasting, and healthy. Despite being criticized by Antonia for only being able to cook Asian food, Dale won this week’s challenge with his marinated bison in cabbage cups. As a reward, he received a Rutherford Hill 2002 bottle of Merlot and two tickets to visit the Rutherford Hill’s winery in Napa Valley, CA.

Spike, Andrew, and Lisa ended up as the bottom 3 for their failure to deliver a healthy boxed lunch for the Chicago Police. These three also delivered the most vocal barbs to fellow chefs. Spike, who won the Sexy Salad Quickfire, had an advantage of selecting 4 items at the market that the other chefs couldn’t use. Strategically, he chose tomatoes, bread, lettuce, and chicken, in turn making everyone else invent a boxed lunch out-of-the-box so to speak. Lisa announced at the onset that everyone’s “personality sucks-a**” and later claimed that one of the chefs burned her rice. The judges, however, were put off by her raw shrimp more than the burnt rice. Andrew said he “woke up today with a f***ing fire inside my stomach, you know, like I’m going to stab somebody, or I’m going to make some amazing food.” Fortunately, he didn’t stab anyone, and unfortunately (for Andrew), the judges hated his dish and the police thought the meal was not satisfying. Andrew was furious that Lisa “threw him under the bus” by telling the judges that he didn’t use a whole grain. Andrew then admitted to the judges that he had lost his rule sheet, but in the end, he was sent home because the judges hated his dish.

Will Dale keep the Merlot for himself and retain his a**hole status with the other chefs?

Coming up is the next instalment of the popular Restaurant Wars.

    Poor Andrew, I absolutely love him and his craziness. Though healthy, did not address the audience. I thought it was shitty of Lisa to throw him under the bus, especially when she refused to use kielbasa a few episodes prior.

    I don’t drop a great deal of remarks, however i did some searching and wound up here Crazy Chef Andrew sent home on Top Chef Chicago | PJ Bottoms Blog. And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of these remarks appear like
    they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
