ATC Love to Chef John Currence

For this week's Elimination Challenge, Chef John Currence stepped in to fill the "app or pasta" gap in the 10 course menu. He chose to make a classic and very simple risotto, which ultimately did not impress the critics with it's plain-ness. Yet, they all admitted that the risotto was perfectly cooked...a testament to John's masterful abilities in the kitchen.

We're sorry to see you go so early in the competition, Chef Currence, but at least you got one Quickfire Challenge win under your belt. We wish you great success in the future.

This post is only for positive comments about Chef Currence and his dishes. If you have anything negative to say, please do so here.

By the way, I just dropped your blog out of my feed reader because I'm tired of being spoiled to who wins/loses on top chef before I get to watch the episode on my DVR. You might want to consider not putting the winners or losers name in the title of posts. In the body is ok, but I can't skip reading the title.

John is one of three, if not the best Chef in the south; the others being Chris Hastings & Frank Stitt. I thought that was the biggest bunch bs that he was eliminated last night, because as you stated "Yet, they all admitted that the risotto was perfectly cooked..." which is no easy task especially under those time constraints. To no surprise John graciously thanked everyone for the opportunity and donations to his charity. If you ever want to taste incredible food and really see what John can do, stop by The City Grocery in Oxford, MS.
