We move on to Casey, who already looks a bit melancholy. Padma asks how Casey feels her whole menu went. Casey admits that she was rattled and unprepared. Padma leads her: "But surely you would have come here with some idea of two or three things in your repertoire that you knew you could pull off with very basic ingredients." Casey babbles about altitude changes and seeing ingredients and running and then says, "I wanted a nice block of Gala apples, sake poached. We had one bottle, you took half [she turns and points at Hung], didn't quite have enough. Leeks were not there today." Colicchio begs to differ. There were leeks. "Baby leeks?" Casey asks, pointedly. Colicchio holds up his fingers to indicate the small diameter of the leeks: "I actually remember seeing -- because leeks are one my favorite things -- I remember looking and I go, 'Wow, the leeks look great.' I saw them there." CRINGE!
