Marcel presents his Frog Leg Lollipop (lamb lollipops were all the restaurant rage a few years ago) with Chicken Liver PurÃ©e, and Garlic and Parsley Sauces. Again, considering what the point of this challenge was, I wish they would explain to us where all the ingredients are -- where's the eggplant? The peanut butter? It looks he could have crusted the frog leg with cornflakes, but I'm not certain. The Orange Group tells us they weren't that impressed by Marcel. I'm not impressed by Marcel's Flock of Pelicans hair.
Betty made a Frog Leg and Chicken Liver Cake and put it on top of a salad dressed with a peanut butter ginger sauce. Eggplant? Cornflakes? Ted Ilan likes it, and Carlos winks at Betty encouragingly. Aw, I like Carlos more and more.
Sam presents his Turmeric and Cereal-Crusted Frog Leg with Eggplant and Caper SautÃ© and a Duo of Sauces. The sauces look like smears. We don't learn much more.
Over at Josie's station, we see her cornflake-coated Frog Leg Nugget with Chicken Liver, Peanut Butter, and Eggplant Jelly. Not much more to observe other than that her presentation looks lovely. The nugget seems to be sitting on a thin, square cake made of potato slices.
Moving on to Cliff, we check out his Braised Frog Leg with an Eggplant Chip and Cornflake Chicken Liver. He has that ubiquitous chive "X" on top as a garnish. Michael smiles that he didn't like the chicken liver at all.
Emily explains she has a cornflake, cilantro, and mint-crusted frog leg. She used the peanut butter to "glue" the cornflakes on, and she also made a grilled eggplant and cilantro leaf salad with lemon juice and put it on a shiso leaf, which is coated with the chicken liver pÃ¢tÃ©. A lot going on there.
We now come to Otto's cornflake-coated frog leg with chicken liver, brown rice, vegetable sautÃ©, and peanut sauce. He topped the dish with a scallion purÃ©e. Otto tells us he grew up with frog legs, because his father loved them. Ted Ilan tells us he was surprised that Otto's dish was so under-seasoned, and that the elements didn't seem to blend together.
