Top Chef - Season 11

Last week on Top Chef New Orleans 2014, the chefs were finally able to create any dish they wanted and show off their cooking skills. The chefs had to create a dish that showed a turning point in their culinary career. This left the door wide open for them and should have brought us very good dishes, right? Like normal, Nick tried to take on too much, but the judges saved him and sent home Brian instead, who headed to Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen to take on Louis.

Who goes home tonight on Top Chef 2014? Find out in our Live Recap that follows!

We see the chefs after the elimination last week and Nick is still shocked he was not sent home. The next day arrives and Carlos knows the other chefs don’t think he deserves to be there, but he says he did not come there to make friends.

The chefs walk into the kitchen and it is time for the Quickfire Challenge and they see Padma Lakshmi, Gail Simmons and Tom Colicchio. They will be doing a challenge and the winner gets a 2014 Toyota Corolla (no immunity tonight), so if Shirley wins that is a second car for her. This is a two-part challenge and they will start with creating the perfect bite of food for Gail. They will create some kind of dish, but it will be placed on a cocktail fork. Two move on to the next round and two will be eliminated.

The chefs get started and have 20 minutes to get the bite on that cocktail fork! Time runs out and the judges come to taste the bites. It all falls off of Gail’s fork for Shirley’s bite! They taste them all and Gail said they loved the taste of Carlos’ bite. Gail wanted Shirley’s bite to be tighter. Nina’s shrimp was fantastic, but greasy. The two favorite dishes were from Carlos and Nick!

For the second round, they must create a dish that highlights either a red bell pepper or an eggplant. Carlos said he has an eggplant dish and wants that, but Nick rushes up and grabs it, so Carlos is stuck with the pepper. The time runs out and Carlos made a soup, which Nick thinks is a copout and easy way to go. The judges taste the dishes and time to find out the winner. I am shocked, but Carlos is the winner and gets the new car! Nick looks pissed and should be, right?

The judges find out that three of them will move on to the finale, which will be in Maui, Hawaii! In walks Emeril Lagasse for the Elimination Challenge on Top Chef 2014 Season 11. They want the chefs to take the experiences and knowledge they have gained in New Orleans and create a dish showcasing their time in New Orleans. The winning dish will be added to Emeril’s menu! They will spend the night at his restaurant and get a meal personally cooked for them by Emeril.

The chefs head out and do some shopping for their dishes. Everything is in order and they head out to Emeril’s restaurant to see him cook their meal for them. Their first dish puts a light in Nina’s brain and is going to use that dish to build her dish the next day. The food looks beyond amazing…anyone else hungry???

The next day arrives and the chefs are in the kitchen making their dishes. Nick, of course, is making a complex dish and if something goes wrong then the whole dish is screwed up. The chefs are working hard and in come Emeril and Tom to see how they are doing. They have kind words for them all and it all depends on how the final dish comes out.

The judges on Top Chef 2014 have arrived and the time is running out for the chefs to finish their dishes. Nina is up first and she forgot to put a portion of her dish on the plate and she is pissed. It doesn’t seem to be missed, as the judges liked it and Tom think it could have ruined the dish and she met the challenge.

For Nick, they said the broth is delicious and the fish is cooked nice. They said the fish is a little bland without the sauce. For Carlos, they think the idea was creative. They were hesitant at first, but once they started eating it, it works. For Shirley, they said the sauce is so good. They feel like they were transported to China with that dish. Nina is pissed about screwing up her dish!

Judges’ Table: all four chefs stand in front of the judges on Top Chef Season 11. The judges still loved Nina’s dish, even without all the ingredients there and she still met the challenge. They loved Shirley’s sauce and the fish was cooked perfectly. They thought Nick’s dish was beautiful and it was the best thing they have eaten from him. Compliments for Carlos as well, so who knows who is going home tonight! Nina and Shirley had their favorite dishes, so they are moving on to the Top Chef Season 11 finale! Shirley is the winner and will have her dish in Emeril’s restaurant.

That means Nick and Carlos had the least favorite dishes and the road ends tonight for one of them. The judges discuss the dishes and I think Nick gets saved again and Carlos will go home. What do you think?

The chefs are back in front of the judges and the chef eliminated tonight on Top Chef 2014 Season 11 is Carlos! That means Nick, Nina and Shirley will be heading to Hawaii for the finale. Carlos heads to Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen and has one more chance to make it to the finale. He will be taking on Louis and one of them will make it to the finals next week!

What do you think of the results on Top Chef New Orleans 2014 tonight?
