kleenex said:In the Duck Battle. What a battle!!! Tsai attempted Peking duck in under 1 hour.
Tsai went with a dessert item using duck. Some Creme Bru lei type item.
Flay had one item that used a serrano peppers and one that used a habanero peppers.

michael, i have a few cabbie friends that wanna have a little talk with you, maybe go for a little walk, capisce?
i watched that battle, flay got his butt whipped on taste, but it was pretty much a dead heat on originality and presentation. i cringed listening to flay clumsily describe his dishes. ming tsai came away looking very good, very classy.
at least the battle was good, and the judges had some interesting things to say. the guy from "queer eye" was pretty funny.
i still think they could have done away with the chairman thing and just gone with a good host/emcee. terrible casting.

He's an embarresment to America, ruder than an Italian New York cabbie (from Brooklyn) who only get's a $20 tip for a $5 fare, nd I wouldn't eat in one of his pepper-palaces if they were the last fast-food joints on the earth.
I always cheer for his challenger.
