A spot in the finals on Top Chef Charleston 2017 is up for grabs tonight, as the chefs on Top Chef Season 14 will be taking a look back at their journey this season and creating dishes that are inspired by that journey. They also will be helping a mystery guest hidden on the other side of a wall create the same dish that chef is creating, which will be fun to watch on Top Chef 2017! Check it out with us tonight during our Top Chef Charleston 2017 Live Recap and see who went home on Top Chef Charleston 2017 tonight!
Last week on Top Chef Season 14, Padma Lakshmi surprised the chefs with a Sudden Death Quickfire Challenge, as the chefs went out shrimping with Tom Colicchio and had to use those shrimp to make a dish. The three least favorite dishes then created a dish using all the other seafood caught in the nets. Casey had the least favorite dish of the bunch and she was eliminated! For the Elimination Challenge, the chefs had to serve brunch to the Charleston Hat Ladies. They would create a new brunch dish that was infusing breakfast and lunch together. The judges were not impressed with most of the dishes, especially from Brooke and John, but Sylva was supposed to make a frittata and he did not, so it cost him and he was eliminated. Now Casey and Sylva headed to Last Chance Kitchen to take on Jamie to stay alive in the competition!

The chefs arrive and Padma is with guest judge Michael Solomonov. The stations have a partition between them and they will have a mystery guest on the other side. For the challenge, they have to prepare a dish using the ingredients in their station. At the same time, they have to walk their mystery partner through making the same dish! They will be judged by how similar the dish tastes and looks! The winner of this challenge will get $10,000! The mystery partners happen to be their spouses and family members, so how can you not recognize their voice through a wall?
Michael said he was impressed by all of the dishes, but the winner created two of the same dishes. The winner is Sheldon and they get $10,000!
For this challenge, they are joined by Mary Sue Milliken, a James Beard Award winner. They will prepare a dish representing their journey on Top Chef Charleston 2017 worthy of being served at the James Beard House. The winner of this challenge will cook their dish and develop a a whole menu around it at the James Beard House!
The chefs figure out their dishes and go out to do some shopping. They then head back to the kitchen and prep for the next day. Then it is back home and Padma is cooking them dinner and their family members are there! So, a calm night before the big day tomorrow!
The next day comes and they get the finishing touches on their dishes and the judges have arrived, so time for the tasting on Top Chef Season 14!
- John – Padma said it looks beautiful. Tom said he captured the essence of the ocean in it. He did not peel the peppers, so it would have helped to do that. Padma got bitterness from the broth.
- Shirley – They said this dish is a perfect example is an ability to create connections between different worlds. Tom said this should be her signature dish. They want her to open a Chinese Soul Food restaurant there. They said Shirley knows who she is as a chef.
- Brooke – They love the radishes and radish greens. Tom likes the egg and it gives it a richness. They said it is a little too sweet. They like the confidence in the flavoring. She ruined the texture of the tenderloin by cooking it the way she did.
- Sheldon – They said it is insanely good and should be proud that Tom ate the okra. They love that he balanced it so well. They would love to eat his food at the Beard House.
They said everything was insanely delicious, but two chefs stood out: Shirley and Sheldon! Tom said he can be humble, but Sheldon is going to be one among the group of best chefs in America some day. With that, the winner of the challenge is Sheldon! That means Brooke and John are in danger of going home on Top Chef Charleston 2017.
They both made good dishes, but some minor missteps will keep one of them from the finals in Mexico! Tom said there are no losers here, but one person that is not moving on. The person eliminated tonight on Top Chef Charleston 2017 is Brooke! She now heads to Last Chance Kitchen to take on Jamie and Casey, who won last week, and one of them will win a spot back in the finals!
