Good morning chefs. Good morning. Of course you all know this man on my right. The winner of Top Chef Season three, and our guest judge for this quick fire challenge, [UNKNOWN]. Hello. [CROSSTALK] [UNKNOWN] [UNKNOWN] is a guy who that loves fish. There is a blanket, there is something square. Yes, fish. There's gonna be an aquarium down there. Chefs of your caliber should have no problem creating great food when using the freshest and most seasonal ingredients. But, you're not going to be using the most seasonal ingredients. [MUSIC] Whoa. [LAUGH] Pamela reveals a pile of [JEFF] Garbage. A lot of stuff that a lot of chefs would not use, I mean, Jesus Christ, what a mess. [HOST] Your Quickfire Challenge is to make the most delicious dish you can from the cupboard and pantry staples. In honor of Hung, who is the fastest Top Chef in history, we're only giving you 15 minutes. Oh my God. Come on guys, that's plenty of time. For you! Yeah, I know! [LAUGH] You think it's enough time, really? Plenty of time. Are you ready? Your quick fire starts now! [MUSIC] Oh my God! When we get up there, it's like a mosh pit of hands and and elbows flying. I got an elbow to the gut. [UNKNOWN] Jose. He tried to grab the can of artichoke from my hand and it's like come on, I need just one, **** you, [UNKNOWN] [INAUDIBLE] Oh, you guys are killing me! I mean, just ridiculous. I can't make anything, man. I finally see a can of peas and there is this can of Spam. Alright. It's gonna be split pea soup with ham. That's the best thing I can come up with right now. [SOUND]
