"Each of you will have 60 minutes to cook the dish of your life," Giada De Laurentiis told the finalists on Sunday night. "And make sure, you guys, that the dish you make leaves no doubt that you should be the next Food Network Star."
That's some pressure, huh?
The four hopefuls who remained at that point in Sunday's new episode knew that their offerings had to be some of their best in the competition — and ultimately three of them delivered on the high demands. Damiano's elegant cake, Jernard's bold pork chop-mac and cheese combo and Tregaye's surf-and-turf brunch shined with not only impressive flavors, but also with the competitors' signature points of view, so much so that these three finalists clinched the coveted three pilot opportunities.
Now it's your turn to try your hand at these all-important plates. Get the recipes for Damiano's, Jernard's and Tregaye's offerings below.
