Spoilers for the latest episode.

Alas, poor Susan Feniger. I've met her at her restaurant, and she is exactly like she was on the show.

After she was dismissed for her celebrated kaya toast (a Singapore dish), I went to read the blogs of the judges, assuming that there was some problem in execution. No: they genuinely felt that a "sandwich" or, as Gael Greene dismissively put it, "toast and jelly" was a joke at this stage of the competition.

Well... all I can say is, I've had her kaya toast, and, not to oversell, but it was one of the single best things I've ever put in my mouth. The party I was with was so taken with it that we ordered it again at the same meal, as "dessert."

So yeah, it's simple: perfectly toasted bread spread with home made coconut "jam," with a nicely dressed green salad on the side and a perfectly fried egg drizzled in soy sauce to dip it in. Simple but perfect. I wish I had a plate of it right now.

That sounds really good. I could never get into Masters, but I'm looking forward to the regular show starting in a couple of weeks.

My moment of frustration this season was when our Seattle chef (whose restaurant I've eaten at more than once, and who I've met) was in the round where they paired everybody up and then judged each pair as a group. It's possible that he still wouldn't have made it to the next round, but since all the negative comments were about his partner, it seemed... odd.

It didn't make sense to me because they've talked about her restaurant on the show before, and it's not like they don't know what kind of food she specializes in. So...they threw her off for cooking high-end street food? You know, her specialty.

Well, I think they also said it wasn't hot, so it probably wasn't as amazing as it would have been at her restaurant. I also loved her on the show, and was very sad to see her go.

And for those in Los Angeles, Chef Feniger is giving away one free order of Kaya Toast per table to patrons who whisper "pack your knives," now through June 1.

I must return!
