    Gummy Candy, of one sort or another, has been used often on Chopped. The chefs there have made some pretty interesting and palatable dishes with it. So, I didn't see it as particularly challenging. Tuna jerky can be very tricky. It's not that consistant and if you miss by even a little bit, with it, it is bloody awful. Remember that 'inedible' dish that Vigneron produced. Well, that's what you risk with tuna Jerkey.

    I cannot believe that chef Appleman was placed in the bottom when they praised his marriage of clams and strawberries and just disagreed on his serving the pasta al dente while chef Guarnaschelli made a dish in which they all stated that they could barely taste the second ingredient, the peppermint. If this had been Chopped she would have chopped herself. It must be nice to have friends (Zakarian) as a judge. Time and again Guarnaschelli dishes have been described as "safe" or mediocre and yet she continues to move forward ahead of chefs who in my opinion demonstrate much greater skill and risk taking; more appropriate for an iron chef. In my opinion something stinks in this kitchen.
