Top Chef 7 Episode 2 Recap

What Do You Think of Top Chef 7 so Far?

Last night, the second episode of Top Chef: DC went down, and it was totally action-packed. First came the Bi-partisandwich Quickfire, in which the 16 contestants teamed up in pairs and tried their best to single-handedly pile ingredients between bread while attached at the apron. The challenge was painfully cheesy, but Angelo was the right one to win immunity.

For the Elimination Challenge — seriously, who didn't see this coming? — the chefs took part in Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign, and made a four-course school lunch for 50 on a public school budget of $2.60 per person. Standing in for new chef judge Eric Ripert was the extremely attractive and intelligent White House chef Sam Kass.

I wasn't surprised by the taco team taking home the win, or for someone being eliminated over dessert. So far, I think Kenny and Angelo are the season's front-runners. How do you feel about Top Chef: DC?

Sadly my brain still thinks it's on at 10pm and I keep missing it and the reruns; but hey it's a cooking show and I like them all!

the chefs on season 6 were so good that the whole show may be ruined. I say it's "braised the shark"

Yeah Sam Kass was unexpectedly hot. His bullshit meter was on red alert too....with his "Tomato is a fruit" response to Kenny, and his smackdown on Amanda for buying sherry for a cafeteria lunch.

I thought I was over Top Chef, but I'm enjoying it in spite of myself. I also am rooting for Kenny so far. Sam Kass was unexpectedly hot.

I agree on pretty much all points, sarah.I'm routing for Kenny for the win. To me, he's confident, while Angelo is cocky. (And yes, there is a huge difference in my eyes.)

I loved Padma's interaction with the kids at the end of the show. It was so cute! I don't have a favorite at the moment, but I'm liking the season so far. Amanda's choice to buy and use sherry was pretty dumb, and I'm glad she got called out on it. There were plenty of other ways to prepare the chicken, and they definitely could've used the chocolate for dessert. That being said, Jacqueline's dessert sucked, and putting two pounds of sugar in it definitely wasn't a healthy way to prepare a dessert for kids. Lastly, I think Angelo kinda half assed it since he was immune. Actually I think he sabotaged his team in order to get his biggest threat (Kenny) out. Celery and peanut butter is not Top Chef material.

I think it's because Padma has the post-pregnancy glow!

There doesn't seem to be anyone likable this season. But I'll continue to watch, because it's Top Chef! Padma is cuter and bubblier than she has been in the previous seasons, and that's been fun to watch!

Didn't like what Angelo said about Kenny. Very immature. Go Kenny!
