'Top Chef Just Desserts' recap: Cookie Couture
In case you didn't think this was a real competition, the judges kicked it up a notch in today's Quick Fire. Or at least they want you to think that they kicked it up a notch. You see, today they are making *shudder* soufflés for Sherry Yard. In case the word alone does not send shivers running up and down your spine, each of the competitors gets a minute to explain why they are afeared of the soufflé. It must be whipped! And beaten! And removed aquiver from the oven as if it was a chicken who cruelly had all the bones removed. Zac announces that he doesn't even like soufflé because it is too light and airy. Morgan chimes in that "soufflé" actually means light and airy. Regardless of semantics, Zac is making a frozen soufflé a.k.a. a soufflé glace. Erika made a very white soufflé, while Heather namechecked Godiva chocolate so she should totally win. Yigit makes soufflé for his boyfriend, Morgan does not make soufflé for his son on Sundays, but does teach the class on soufflé at Cowboy State.
The guest judge chooses her least favorite first: Zac's frozen soufflé was not actually a soufflé and the guest judge noticed that, Heather's soufflé was no unicorn (no really, the guest judge said it) ...
