Josie and Nico return to battle it out over a special themed burger challenge. Going in to this round Josie and Nico both have one golden whisk, so the pressure is on for both of them as they compete to determine who will go on to the final four.
Both young chefs have 20 minutes to craft a burger with a frightening theme: zombies! Each contestant’s burger must embody a zombie and the two competitors must figure out how to create a burger that embodies the theme in both presentation and flavor. And as always, judges will be paying special attention to the cleanliness of their work stations. In addition to Chef Besh and Chef Sanchez, grilling expert Elizabeth Karmel returns to help judge these ghoulish creations.
Nico is looking to mix it up a little and go for shock value with his unusual-looking, but delicious, Super Barf Burger, while Josie goes for cute and funny with her Little Zombie Burger. Will Nico’s combo of bacon and onions outdo Josie’s blue cheese infused burger? Plus, Josie reveals who her favorite Superchef judge is!
Consistency is key in mastering different skills to become a great chef. Confident Nico already has one golden whisk and Eliana is determined to stay in the running. This challenge is not only about the flavor, but the appearance of the crostini as well. The kids have to peel dozens of edamame, mix a topping and use a piping bag to top their six perfect crostini in just ten minutes. Will Nico add a second whisk to his apron? Or will Eliana continue to the semifinals? Chef Aaron Sanchez and Chef John Besh will be the judges of that.
What’s the perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood? Chef John Besh’s remoulade sauce! In this challenge, Nico and Cannon have 10 minutes to taste Chef John Besh’s remoulade and recreate it perfectly. There are 14 ingredients on the table, but contestants may only choose 8 in their recipe. Whoever uses the highest number of correct ingredients will take a golden whisk.
Cannon is confident in his ability to make sauces, but Nico shows no sign of wavering during this competition. Both young cooks create a complex sauce, and with a special twist at the end, this is one episode you won’t want to miss.
