Michael presented his Grandma Mary’s Chicken Provolone dish. He added sautéed spinach and prosciutto to it. Gordon said, “It’s comforting and charming.” Aaron said, “I love the seasoning, but it’s a little rich.” Joe said, “It’s has a little too much flavor.”

Suu presented her Coconut & Vanilla Panna Cotta dish. She added passion fruit coulis and a fortune cookie to it. Gordon said, “That is exceptional.” Aaron said, “I love it. It’s not overwhelming.” Joe said, “Your Panna Cotta is legendary.”

Lexy presented her Fried Chicken Wings dish. She added sweet potatoes, corn bread and collard greens to it. Gordon said, “The collard greens are delicious. The corn bread is super sweet.” Aaron said, “This is a step back for you.” Joe said, “This dish is too simple and too sweet. Too bad. It’s not restaurant quality.”

Abe presented his Shepherd’s Pie dish. He served it with fennel slaw. Joe said, “This isn’t how it’s supposed to look. It’s kind of a mess. It’s more like a Shepherd’s soup pie. However, I like the way it taste.” Gordon said, “The potatoes need to be more fluffy.” Aaron also said, “The potatoes need to be fluffier, but the flavors are good. It’s seasoned well.”

After tasting all the dishes, the judges determined that Abe, Lexy and Anne landed in the bottom three with their dishes.

Then, they finally decided that Lexy’s dish was the least-inspiring aka the worst dish of this round. So, she was sadly eliminated. In her final statement, Lexy said, “I have a stronger since of confidence in myself, and I will be forever grateful for this experience.”
