The judges approach Stefan first. He explains that he's made a savory egg dish and a sweet one. The savory dish is a poached egg on brioche with ham and Bearnaise. Sounds delish. The second is panna cotta with with mango puree and sweet bearnaise. Stefan sure loves his panna cotta. Also, the second dish doesn't have any eggs in it, but it is meant to look like a poached egg (why would you want something to look like an ugly poached egg?). Then Stefan says something that sort of indicates that there is egg in his second dish, but I'm not sure if he was explaining the look or the ingredients. Mystery. Okay, I checked the official recipe on the official site, and it is the least helpful recipe of all time, but it looks like there were no eggs in the panna cotta or mango.
Leah made a quail egg in potato with caviar and brioche with ricotta and bacon Hollandaise. Ooh, I missed that she made Hollandaise for her Quickfire, so presumably she is familiar with it. Wylie calls it "very nice."
Carla explains her inspiration was Dr. Seuss, so she put spinach in the egg whites to make them green, and she added green tomato salsa and jalapeno oil. Green tomato salsa sounds gross. Padma and Wylie both think it's "pretty" but don't talk much about how it tastes.
Hosea made a Japanese trio. First is an egg white roll with salmon and asparagus. That would be like candy to a South Beach diet follower. Second is egg white sticky rice with poached shrimp and avocado. Third is an avocado and tempura-fried egg salad. The tempura-fried egg looks like a giant lump of batter to me, but I'm curious about the egg inside. Is it boiled? Poached? None of the above? Wylie asks about the egg white sheet used for the roll, and is clearly fascinated by it. He does wish it wasn't "as eggy," which seems kind of bullshit for an egg-based challenge.
Fabio is the last to present. He made a tiny quail egg on a miniature buckwheat pancake for his first dish. The second is coconut milk panna cotta with mango puree made to look like a fried egg. Hmm, almost the same dish as Stefan, but fried instead of poached. Everyone knows that fried eggs are way prettier. The last is lychee soup with melon yolk, served in an egg shell so it looks kind of like a raw egg. Why would you want to eat something that looks like a raw egg? What am I, Rocky Balboa? Wylie and Fabio talk molecular gastronomy for a moment, the only chef we see Wylie discuss his favorite cooking technique with. It looks like Fabio has it in the bag.
