No Top Chef tonight, January 26, 2011. The show will be on hiatus and will return next week. The episode airing is the same as last week. So for now, we’ll just have a recap of what happened last week. It was the Restaurant Wars where the chefs went to Le Bernardin seafood restaurant for a knife skills challenge. Anthony Bourdain and Justo Thomas were the judges for this quickfire challenge. Dale T. won this one with the Bacon Dashi with Salt Roasted Cod Collar, Fluke Back Fin Sashimi with Cucumber and Fluke Liver Sauce.
For the elimination challenge, the chefs were divided into two teams, with Dale T. as the lead for Bodega team and Marcel as the lead for Etch team. The winning team is the Bodega team and from the losing team, Marcel was kicked off.
Stay tuned next week for an all new episode.
