ATC: What did you do to prepare for the competition?
EG: I looked at past seasons and thought about what I would do for those challenges, both the Quickfire and the elimination challenges. I tested new recipes at the restaurant. I worked on presentation. I memorized recipes and ratios. I did everything I could think of, I reviewed my cookbooks.
There were a lot of notecards involved...
But honestly, there is really no way to prepare for this experience. It didn't help!
