Angelo, despite being instructed specifically not to make a crudo dish, makes a crudo dish. (Her other failure is a really terrible joke she tries to make about being fast in bed. Shut up.) But I honestly thought everyone would fall on their butts on this one. This week's Elimination Challenge is a lot of food for a lot of people.
Blais said he couldn't even pull off making his daughter a PB&J in the morning in eight minutes. The chefs have to work together and run a dim sum lunch rush at Chinatown's Grand Harmony. Fabio, who acts like he's never even seen a picture of a Chinese person, calls it his Nightmare on Elm Street. When you micronap is when Chinese Freddy invades your dreams and makes you cook dumplings.
In December 2005, Dale moved to NYC for the opportunity to work with Chef Masaharu Morimoto and restaurateur Stephen Starr at the celebrated Japanese restaurant, Morimoto.
Continuing to work with STARR Restaurants, he then joined the kitchen of Buddakan, serving as Chef de Cuisine.
But aside from the previously mentioned messes, everybody does a surprisingly impressive job in so little time. The chefs head back to One Brooklyn Bridge Park to plan. Marcel, who was ALL UP in the confessional this episode, makes a very annoying and long fist-pumping joke about Mike in the car.
Shame on Marcel for saying it, and shame on the show for including it.
I do not like Marcel, but even I was impressed by this. Dale tries to get egg noodles together, but his dish is nothing.
Dale Talde's passion for cooking began at a young age in his native Chicago where he learned to prepare meals alongside his mother in the kitchen.
The proud son of Filipino immigrants, he grew up immersed in his family's cultural heritage while also enjoying the life of a typical American kid.
Dale later joined Chef Carrie Nahabedian at her award-winning New-American restaurant, Naha.
Under Chef Nahabedian, Dale learned the value of being a "locavore" and how to build relationships with local farmers, fishmongers and butchers.
In 2011, Dale was named Director of Asian Concepts for STARR Restaurants, consulting on various projects and assisting with the opening of Makoto in Bal Harbour, Florida.
