Last week on Top Chef 2017 Season 14, we started the night with the chefs competing in the Quickfire that had them creating a dish at the same time they are giving instructions to someone on the other side of a wall. Sheldon won the challenge and got $10,000. Then we had the Elimination Challenge and the chefs had to create dishes that represented their journey on the show. Yet again, Sheldon won the challenge. It was Brooke and John in danger of being eliminated and the judges sent Brooke packing, but she headed to Last Chance Kitchen to take on Jamie and Casey for a spot in the finals!

The chefs meet Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colicchio, who is with guest judge Francisco Ruano. They find out the winner of Last Chance Kitchen, which is no shocker here, as Brooke rejoins the competition (and will probably go on to win the whole season just for the storyline). For this challenge, they have 45 minutes to create a dish featuring goat to celebrate Guadalajara and Chivas. The winner gets an advantage in the next challenge and wins $10,000.
The judges taste all of the dishes and the winning dish goes to Brooke (shocker)! So, she wins an advantage and $10,000 on Top Chef Charleston 2017!
For this challenge, Patron is hosting a party for 100 people that work at their distillery. They will create a dish to pair with a unique margarita featuring Patron tequila. The dish must have all those flavors of a margarita in it! They will be judged on their dish, margarita and how well they pair together. Four eliminated chefs come back to help as sous chefs and Brooke gets to choose first and then gets to assign the other sous chefs:
- Brooke picks Casey
- Sheldon gets Emily
- Shirley gets Sylva
- John gets Katsuji
Katsuji and John try to work through some bitterness. To learn more about tequila and making it, they head to the Patron Hacienda and get a tour. Then the chefs sit down and figure out their dishes and margaritas. Then they head out to do some shopping.
They are prepping the dishes and drinks. Sheldon seems to have overcooked his meat. The judges and guests are arriving and everyone is drinking it up! Time for the tasting!
- Sheldon – They said the bottom of his drink looks like a fish tank. The avocado was cooked perfectly. The drink is out of balance. Padma likes the food, but Tom thinks it is too sweet.
- Shirley – Padma loves her salsa. Texture is great. They do not like the vanilla added in. The drink is not great and it needs to be strained more.
- John – There is room to take it to the next level. The drink is just a regular margarita and said it is a bold move. It needs salt, but there is nothing unique about the drink. Tom said the drink washes out the soup.
- Brooke – They said it looks beautiful. They love the soup and it is so refreshing. Tom said a good balance. The cocktail is good, but not strong enough. The drink and soup pair very well together.
Tom said they did not get a bad dish, but some did better than others. They all get their feedback and the winner of this challenge is Brooke, which is not a shocker, yet again! She gets a limited edition bottle of Patron worth $7,500!
The judges discuss the three other chefs and their margaritas and dishes tonight on Top Chef Charleston 2017! The chefs are back in front of the judges and the chef eliminated tonight is John, so Shirley, Sheldon and Brooke move on to another week!
