The Namesake – Top Chef Season 7

I was not at all surprised tonight when Alex was kicked off after tonight’s elimination challenge. Now that he is gone, I feel that I can resume being impressed with Tiffany and Kelly.

I thought the way Tiffany chose to deconstruct the gyro was really smart and simple enough where she could really work the classic flavors more powerfully. I would also give $1 million Monopoly dollars to hear Eric Ripert say “gyro” again.

Innovation, cooking, and taste aside, I was most pleased with this episode’s guest judges. I love Wiley Dufresne and Eric Ripert. Molecular Gastronomy is meshes cooking together as an art, a game, and a science. Eric Ripert, on the other hand, is just plain old adorable, and has been a great judge in past seasons. He’s most known for seafood, so I’m not sure that I’ll ever taste his food, but he sure is aesthetically pleasing.

Final three prediction? Simple. Ed, Tiffany, and Kelly.
