Patrick Dunlea was booted off Top Chef Season 5’s first episode because his salmon and bok choy were lackluster and his black-rice noodles were mushy. Gail Simmons amps up the broth with soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and garlic and uses white-rice noodles instead of black (they’re easier to find), cooked briefly to keep their texture firm.
