good morning and happy top chef tuesday!

As promised I’m giving you all a short top chef recap today because taxes have kept me up well past my bedtime. Wish I could say they’re done, but...

This week’s top chef was all about family. After 20 seasons the Top Chef family is large with so many chefs and judges.

Quickfire: German Tom won the challenge with a mead and honey concoction. I got home late that night so I did not watch the quickfire.

Elimination: The remaining chefs went to a Vrbo in Kent, where they had to prepare a family-style meal to be served among themselves and the judges.

Winner: Amar with his Moroccan-inspired lamb shank. Ali returned to the top again with his lamb kebab and pomegranate molasses. Victoire’s madesu - a Congolese stew - was also a hit.

Eliminated: Begona. She and the other two chefs in the bottom - Buddha and Gabri - were the only three to not have a holiday tradition (this was part of the challenge - a meal inspired by holidays). And the judges disliked Begona’s holiday stew the least.

I’m surprised here! I thought she was the most talented of the bunch, and I still think that. She’ll have a chance to return to the competition through Last Chance Kitchen.
