Lee Anne walks out and introduces her Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry in a light red curry and lemongrass sauce with coconut-scented jasmine rice. It looks absolutely beautiful in the container. The ladies like it. Candice is next with her spinach and shrimp quiche and she says a few inane things about feeling like she's having Sunday brunch "with the girls." Katie Leebot pointedly asks if there's a crust on the quiche and then asks what it's made out of. Candice tells her, "Whole wheat flour and eggs and butter, and a little bit of apple cider vinegar to hold it together." Someone -- we don't know who, but it is captioned -- at the judges' table says they hope the crust is going to be crisp. "It can't be," Colicchio decides. One Jr. Leaguer notes to Candice, "This doesn't look like a typical quiche it's really eggy." Candice explains that "for health reasons" she likes to put more protein and vegetables in than cream. Another lady notes to her table that the shrimp is overcooked. We didn't see this sort of back and forth with any of the others. Gee, Bravo, I wonder who is going home today. Lisa presents her grilled herbed chicken breast with two cheese gratin, "That's macaroni and cheese to the kids." That gets a big laugh. Some comments are that something is rubbery and not flakey enough -- the hell? That would sound like a comment more about Candice's crust, not chicken or macaroni and cheese, neither of which should be flakey -- and that the chicken is too herby.
