Top Chef: Colorado episode 13 is the penultimate episode of the season, and it is absolutely a different sort of episode than the final three chefs have been a part of to date. Adrienne Cheatham, Joseph Flamm, and Joe Sasto are all now in Aspen, Colorado, where they are going to compete in hopes of making it to the final two. This is an intimidating place to be — it’s one of the biggest culinary hubs in the entire country, it’s one of the most affluent places out there, and it is the site of the famous FOOD & WINE Classic. That is going to be a part of the episode, but so are a wide array of other things — including a very memorable Quickfire challenge.
Before diving too deep now, let’s allow the Top Chef: Colorado episode 13 synopsis to explain what’s coming:
In the final Quickfire of the season, the Chefs get a crash course in one of Colorado’s great pastimes, fly fishing, when they not only have to prepare the catch of the day, but they have to actually catch it too. Chef Chris Cosentino serves as guest judge. Then, the only thing standing between the chefs and the Grand Finale is 200 plates, for the country’s most notable chefs and food connoisseurs attending the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. Serving only a vegetarian dish, they have to win over the likes of: Brooke Williamson, Danny Meyer, Bryan Voltaggio, Michael Voltaggio, Ludo Lefebvre, Scott Conant, Tim Love and guest judge Daniel Boulud and more.
The sneak peek below is giving you a little bit more insight on what you’re going to be seeing with said Quickfire — Adrienne and the two Joes struggling to do something that is not up their alley at all. Fishing is not easy, let alone catching fish that are actually large enough to actually serve to other people.
The best part of the entire clip is Joseph claiming that everything he knows about fly fishing comes via A River Runs Through It. It seems as though he’s about to catch a fish at the very end of the challenge, only for this said fish to snap and run away again.
As fun as this challenge is, it really doesn’t have much bearing on what happens later. This is just a way to establish some momentum and to keep the creative juices flowing for the challenge later. Any of the remaining contestants can win, but we’re feeling like an Adrienne versus Mustache Joe finale is where this show is projecting right now.
