Primarius. Jennifer says she delegated. Hateful Jim was in charge of creating the label, and Bethenny was going to create the dressing. Bethenny chats to Carrie about creating an Asian vinaigrette because "Asian is very in right now." Bethenny starts listing ingredients, and Sarah writes them down. "Quarter cup of balsamic -- we're going to use balsamic because that's what we have," Bethenny says. "Who's better than you?" Hateful Jim asks. "Not many," Bethenny says unsmilingly. "I'm a natural foods chef and I happen to make phenomenal salad dressing, and I love Marcela, but there's no way she can touch me in the kitchen," Bethenny brags in a confessional. "We might need some dry herbs, too," Bethenny orders someone. I'll have to take exception to that, because I really think that only fresh herbs should go in salad dressings. If dry herbs go in, they stick in your throat and your teeth and are just unpleasant. Dry herbs are best used when you are simmering a hot liquid for at least thirty minutes -- their wonderfully intense flavors are fully brought out that way. In a salad dressing? There's no heat, nothing to bring out their flavors, and they just sit there and do nothing. Except make me hack like a cat after eating them. However, Bethenny, I'd like to observe, uses lettuce to test her dressings. She's a smart bitch. Hateful Jim babbles that even though he was picked last, he's going to be a hero on that team with his graphic design. We see him drawing mushrooms. Maybe that's what he's been snorting! Bethenny keeps yelling out ingredients. She adds wasabi. The rest of the team tastes, and the camera makes sure to catch Jennifer, token Asian, tasting the Asian vinaigrette and loving it. "Bethenny, this rocks!" Carrie moans. Bethenny, exultant, trumpets a cartoonish Asian song. Okay, first the gong at that Asian bridal salon and now this? O-ffensive!
