In Tom Colicchio's blog, he says that Ilan held the video camera, Sam laughed and Elia was not in the room. He said he was ready to send all four home and let Marcel win by default, but the producers stopped him and only let Cliff go.

Interesting.

If the footage between the cooking was boring would there be a conversation going on here now?
I don't believe they live together for as long as the producers want us to imagine. There was an episode where they got together again for the next challange in another city and talked about their jobs. One had been very busy, another had been moving around, and a third's place had closed. It felt like at least a month had passed since they'd seen each other.
Last night they show Elia and Ilan shaving their heads and getting the news that they were going to hawaii. When they show them in the scenes, she easily has 6-8 weeks of hair growth.
If they were filming daily, you'd have seen Mikey's tooth ailment happening, and healing, instead of just the one bad day. I recall another episode when one of them was physically ill, yet the next episode completely cured. I think they get together for a couple of days, and then but out for real life for a while.

Watching Elia pull that wig off her head and recalling all the times that outfit and hairpiece was in an interview, it shows that there is quite of bit of deft editing going on.

For anyone interested, here's the website of the restaurant that Frank is the Executive Chef at:

HEAT Supper Club - Gaslamp District, Downtown San Diego

The menu looks ok, decent, but nothing cutting edge or new. I wouldn't go there for the food. The nightclub I would though.

Also, for those myspace.com users, Lee Anne, Harold, and several others from both seasons have profiles on there.

Hey, ironchef
Do you know where last year's Dave works? I'm wondering if he's still in No CA, or if he's moved. His cooking I would travel for.

From what I've seen, he's just doing his catering business. He has a website now:

Chef Dave Martin

I bet there are many of you that have some little (or big) thing that you always thought about doing but haven't......yet. Yes, Cliff was very out of line and the others should have spoken up but that is the way it goes. Marcel is a jerk and a spoiled brat, he'll get his eventually.
Shunka, very nice post. For the record, I proudly wear the badges both of courage and shame acquired in my youth.

Thanks! Here's a little something I found:
Dave lives in Long Beach, CA, where he is busy in the kitchen cooking up hisnext big venture which includes a cookbook, TV show and many other surprises.


Perhaps he'll put his black truffle mac n cheese in the cookbook.


Okay, back to the current season...

Having Tom Colicchio is such a plus, imo.
Just noticed your avatar and thought I would mention that I raided my neighbors lemon tree today. (they were not frozen) I juiced them tonight. I got 2 quarts of juice from 50 lemons.
Now I have to find some lemon recipes!
I'll freeze it in ice cube trays.
One cube will make a nice glass of lemonade.
