ATC Love to Chef Kelly Liken

At this stage of the game, it's not a matter of eliminating a chef who is unworthy, but rather narrowing down the best of the best. In that regard, Chef Kelly Liken certainly proved that she had what it took to be a top contender and can hold her head high.

All of Chef Kelly's dishes during this round were considered good by the judges. In the Quickfire, her Chinese noodles with lobster, cockles, bean sprouts, and Chinese broccoli was praised by K.F. Seetoh as having captured "the essence of the ocean." In the Elimination Challenge, her cucumber yogurt soup and her prawn curry were both well received, but the devil is in the details and there were some elements in the dishes which were deemed lacking. So close to the final round, even minor issues can cost dearly.

Although we will miss Chef Kelly in the final round, we are sure to her more from her in the future. This post is only for positive comments regarding Chef Kelly Liken. If you have anything negative to say about Chef Kelly Liken or this episode, please leave your comment here.

I have really enjoyed Kelly all season. She's continued to surprise with excellent dishes - I only wish I could have tasted them! I also respect that she has always been a respectful competitor. Good luck, Kelly!

There goes the only chef who I have consistently respected as a person and chef. Always positive and honest with a great amount of integrity. I'm happy she exists.
