Back in the kitchen, the chefs are given ninety minutes to prepare the dish, wrap it up, and refrigerate it. The dishes will be reheated in a microwave in front of the Junior Leaguers. Miguel drops ice, Andrea's oven gets mistakenly shut off, Lee Anne tells someone not to move her pot, and Dave has problems opening cans. Colicchio does his walk-through. I'm sorry, but the way he rattles the chefs? Tim Gunn he ain't. Colicchio expresses doubts that Candice's quiche will reheat properly. I express doubts as well -- pastry in a microwave doesn't exactly crisp up. The UnGunn also wonders if Stephen's multi-fusion, multi-weird ingredient tamale will prove Stephen to be "style over substance." Finally, Colicchio thinks that Lisa has an edge over everyone else. Stephen tells us, "I expect Lisa to come out on top for this part of the competition. She is the working mom and she's in need of this product probably more than any of us." Man, he can even make a compliment sound horrifically condescending! Tiffani thinks her Asian fish dish will reheat very well, Miguel doubts that fish does well in a microwave. Miguel product places KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce and says he used it in his turkey meatloaf dish. Harold tells the camera he's putting his shrimp in raw so it won't overcook upon reheating. Lee Anne is working on a lemongrass chicken dish with coconut milk. Andrea tells us, "I'm making a quinoa pilaf and some roasted curry sweet potatoes, and I'm emphasizing, for the ladies -- actually, I'll wait until tomorrow to tell you what I'm emphasizing." POOP! Candice babbles, "I think the moms tomorrow will like my quiche dish because I like quiches -- I'm not a mom but I know people who make them that are moms."
