Philly of the Valley

Top Chef - Season 11, Episode 6

If you're not from the Midwest (or haven't read Gone Girl), you may not know about the delightful little snack people always bring to social gatherings: Chunks of pickle spear cemented to cold cut meat by a layer of cream cheese. It's not a recipe that will be gracing the cover of "Cook's Illustrated" anytime soon, but they certainly liven up a Superbowl party.

"Philadelphia" Steamed Egg Custard with Macerated Blueberries

If only the chefs had known about that for this week's challenge...they probably still would have blown it. But come on, there's only so much that can be done with cream cheese. To see what was actually attempted, drop on by What'ere, Jane Eyre for Episode 6. The chefs with the ability to adapt to the show's wacky challenges are really starting to distinguish themselves from the pack, but let's not name names. We wouldn't want Travis to know he's not on the list.
