Anyway. The judges notice that Morgan's soufflé has crumpled under the pressure and someone utters the dreaded phrase: We couldn't sell it in our restaurant if it looked like that. Um...yes you could. People are stupid when it comes to chocolate. Serve me a chocolate pile with a spoon and I will be happy. Zac is making cruel jokes at Morgan's expense. Everyone loves Danielle's Baked Alaska. I really wish they had taken a moment to introduce who the heck these people are. [They may have judged previously, but short-term memory is in effect... especially with this show. -- Angel
Then it is the final dish of the ENTIRE COMPETITION. Yigit presents a chocolate love fest to remind you of "spooning back home". No comment. It's a hazelnut dacquoise, chocolate plaque two ways (?), milk jam candy, and salted caramel ice cream. Morgan has a white pepper crème brulee, black pepper baumkuchen, and a blackberry macaron. Oh my god I love macarons. Danielle made a chocolate pudding cake with pistachio ice cream. The tasting commences: Yigit's dessert goes down well. So well in fact that Gail wants to bathe herself in milk jam candy. Danielle's is sadly lacking, yet delicious. Morgan's dessert shatters beautifully and the baumkuchen is a masterpiece. They chefs get a round of applause and await their fates. Morgan cracks open the champagne and everyone toasts.
At the final Judges Table, the chefs line up to face the firing squad. Both Hubert Keller and Daily Candy Dannielle are there to assess judgment. Gail asks the chefs to justify their existence. Each pastry chef thinks their food was delicious and they did their bestest. Gail asks Danielle to explain her ice cream sampler. Johnny doesn't know where to start, but totally in a good way: It was homey and flavorful and delicious. Gail says that she wants to follow Danielle around and have her make honey candy for her. Danielle nods eagerly because whatever it takes to win. Johnny thought her pulled sugar garnish on the chocolate pudding cake was a waste of time, space, and garnish opportunity. Also, like totally '80s. Danielle crumples in horror. Yigit is next to face the firing squad. There were service issues that ruined his first course. Daily Candy Dannielle loved his third course and Johnny was okay with it too. The judges cut right to the chase with Morgan: What the heck was up with his soufflé? Morgan shrugs because shit happens, you know? The judges loved his baumkuchen and his delicious macaron, despite the fact that he had promised Johnny he would never make another macaron.
