In honor of guest judge Charlize Theron's upcoming role as the Evil Queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman," the cheftestants on "Top Chef Texas" (Wed., 10 p.m. EST on Bravo) were tasked with creating a feast fit for an evil queen. Each of the seven remaining contestants was responsible for one course of the meal.
There were certainly some creative visions coming out of the kitchen, like Paul's bloody handprint surrounded by foie gras combination. It was a chilling presentation perfectly capturing the spirit of the competition. Sarah actually served Theron lamb's heart, which was a bold move, but one that Theron thoroughly appreciated.
Grayson truly outdid herself, serving chicken with the foot still attacked, and a quail's egg on top. "I wanted it to look like a chicken got slaughtered on the plate, and the quail egg symbolizes the baby that was inside her when she got slaughtered," she explained, laughing nervously.
The perfect capper of the feast came with Chris J. and his poisoned apple. He had cherry pie inside, so it would "bleed" when cut open. What more could the evil queen from Snow White want ... except perhaps to serve the apple to Snow White herself?
The entire meal was a huge hit with Theron and the other judges. There simply was not a weak dish among them, prompting necessary nitpicking to figure out who to send home. In the end, it was Beverly whose time on the show was at an end.
"Snow White and the Huntsman," featuring Charlize Theron, is scheduled to premiere June 1, 2012. "Top Chef Texas" continues Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo.
