On Chopped, competitors are expected to create transformative dishes out of the mystery basket ingredients, but, if you really think about it, much of that creativity must include some winging it. That’s exactly what Scott Conant, Marc Murphy and Geoffrey Zakarian do in this episode of After Hours, cooking terrific meals on the fly all while having a lot of fun — including a prank at Scott’s expense. Using the entree basket from the Whiskey and Wings episode, they have to cook with turkey wings; a caddy of hot sauces; carrots, celery and blue cheese; and quinoa whiskey. But first they need a celebratory shot to start things off.
“Let’s wing it,” announces Geoffrey as the guys take shots of the whiskey. “Did that put hair on your chest?” Marc asks Scott after seeing him throw back the entire shot. “Too late for that,” says Scott. “Thirty minutes to drink as much whiskey as possible and perhaps make some dishes while you’re at it,” Ted announces as the clock starts the 30-minute round.
