Lizzie explains that her dish was Northeastern Italian and she worries that she didn't explain it to them well enough when serving. Well, that's condescending. Did she just assume that the judges don't know enough about cuisine to understand her dish? Tom says that her dumpling was undercooked and Danny adds that the sauce was too heavy and gummy.
Josie says that she got a lot of good feedback, and some of her pork was well done but some was fattier. Danny says that his pork fought back, and Gail says that her pork was bland and tasted like grease. Tom thinks Josie is more concerned with the Josie show than executing her dish well, like how she made a crispy bean cake but drowned it in vinegar and made it soggy.
Tom says that some of them had a good concept but the cooking wasn't on par (Josie and Lizzie) and some of them didn't have a good concept, and chose from their head instead of their heart (Micah). Padma announces that Micah's going home. Hey, remember all those cheftestants who talked about how great they are? Micah, CJ, John? They're all gone. It's just Josh and Stefan left on the cockiness front. In Micah's exit interview, he says that he's not sure if any of the cheftestants left are better than him. Oh, Lord.
So here's what happened on Last Chance Kitchen. Stop reading now if you don't want to know!
Micah and CJ had to prepare a raw dish using beef, lamb, duck, or bison. CJ invented pickled duck fat, which Tom actually liked after doubting it when he heard of the concept. Micah made a good dish but used raw shallots, which were overpowering. In the end, Tom thought CJ's dish was the best one he's made so far, and Big Ceej continues his reign.
