Congratulations, Chefs Thierry Rautureau and Takashi Yagihashi
This week's Elimination Challenge was a team challenge, and it was a darn good thing that Thierry and Takashi were already such good friends. They cooked together as if they had done it for years, and their dish of venison and fried banana yucca pleased the native Hualapai and the judges alike. Thierry especially was commended for using so well an ingredient he had never before encountered.
Congrats to two very fine chefs. We think they'll be around for several more weeks. At least.
