Tune in next Wednesday, February 4th at 9pm ET/PT for part two of the three-part finale in Mexico. The remaining three chefs take a surprise visit to the lush organic farm, Purisima de Jalpa on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, that supplies the top restaurants in the region. For their Quickfire Challenge, the chefs must create two dishes with chocolate: one sweet and one savory. In the last Elimination Challenge before the Finale, the final three chefs create a six-course progressive menu, with each dish highlighting one different Mexican ingredient, but tensions flare when one chef gets the short end of the stick. Joining the panel are guest judges Richard Blais and Eduardo Palazuelos, as well as acclaimed chefs Zarela Martinez, Enrique Farjeat, Marco Beteta, and Bricio Dominguez.

(The Late) CHEF TELL Erhardt probably would have enjoyed your segments a lot. He was America’s first syndicated TV celebrity chef, starting in the 1970’s. His biography is a rollicking, five-star read that should be a TV documentary or feature film some day.
