Casey Speaks Out
Lest we feel too bad for poor Carla who seemingly lost it last night because sous chef Casey convinced her to cook sous vide and do a souffle, Casey defends her kitchen honor and she's pissed, writing:
Carla was not prepared and in over her head. The show did not talk about how the first course (crab) took her half of the friggin' cooking time that day, I was left to work the rest of HER dishes.
She also did not have a plan. The ONLY thing she had in mind was a cheese course! I would NEVER do a cheese course. And where in the hell did french come from!? She is not even classically trained! It (the show) didn't talk about how I worked on a sauce for 2 days and Carla forgot to put it on the plate... It didn't show how the 2nd course (fish) was MINE. It didn't show how she took the sous vide idea and decided to GRILL it last minute causing it to be tough... And it didn't show how she WANTED to do the souffles which she does not even know how to make! That was HER food, because it certainly was me asking her how she wanted to do this and that while she was busy picking crab the entire time and making a souffle that didn't rise!
I am done with TC. I did not influence her. She has NO ideas of her own, oh, except a cheese course.
