Good morning chefs. Good morning. You know our guest judge for this round. Culinary innovator and chef owner of WD 50 in New York mister Wylie Dufresne. Hello gang. Hello. > Hello chef. I'm really excited to meet Wylie Dufresne. He is known as a like a wonder with molecular gastronomy. The five of you have made it to our last round in New York. At the end of this next round, four of you will make it onto the finale. Okay, so Wiley, you're pretty famous for your obsession with eggs. I've always loved eggs, and as I became a chef, it became clear that proper egg cookery was a sign of a good chef. So let's see what you guys are made of. Your Quickfire challenge couldn't be more simple. Create something with eggs that will surprise and delight our egg head Wiley over here. The winner of this quick fire will get a serious advantage in the next challenge. I would like to win a quick fire just because I never won one. Do I need advantage? Yes. The stakes for me are high. Your time starts now. [UNKNOWN] gastronomy. You can change the taste of something, the consistency of something. It's a chemical reaction in food. [MUSIC] For me, it's less about doing molecular gastronomy, it's utilizing the egg. Egg and trying to turn the egg into something that it's not. Perfect. So I'm a great chef and I know I'm a great chef. Of course I'll make it to the final four. [NOISE] I'm making a panacotta with a mango puree inside so when you cut it open the yellow comes out of the panna cotta and looks kind of like a poached egg. I know it's gonna impress them. [MUSIC] Molecular gastronomy and Carla are like oil and water. They just don't mix. Everybody's booking, everyone in the room is hauling **** today. I think we're all just trying to do a lot. The only person see that seems really steady is Carla. I know that her dish is really simple. I don't think Wiley's going to be impressed. Hands up, utensils down [BLANK_AUDIO] [NOISE]
