Congratulations, Chef Gillespie!

Chef Kevin Gillespie took home his second Elimination Challenge win this week (along with a big box of pots and pans) for his deconstructed chicken mole negro. After taking a bite, Penn (of Penn and Teller) said that he never wanted to eat a different mole again.

Chef Gillespie was naturally thrilled about the win, especially since he'd made a less successful, but similar dish, earlier in the competition. Ultimately, Tom Colicchio commented that Chef Gillespie's plate included a lot of ingredients, but they were all necessary and ended in a dish that was perfectly balanced. Big praise.
