                You all dont realize that Claire is a baker, a pastry chef nonetheless. She literally lives for being *crazy* and having control over everything she makes, it's in her nature

                          Say's it's difficult to find a certain vinegar, while literally using a squash with a number as a name.

                            Claire!! You took away the only thing Christina cared about. The final scene of lime vs lemon you can see Christina's face drop when Claire insists on lemon.

                                  The high-five is quintessentially Jr. High and incredibly easy so it is funny to watch Claire and Christina practice it .

                                                Loved when they listed a bunch of lettuces and I didn’t recognize a single one ... there’s so much knowledge I just do not have

                                                  Seemed like very little curiosity and experimentation compared to the other episodes. It’s like they (she) had the entire thing decided beforehand.

                                                    I guess I don't see Claire as bossy and Christine as quiet. Christine called them both out for being upset about brussel sprouts and being burnt. Claire is a talker and has a regular show she hosts. Just like Brad can talk to much so can Claire. Heck Andy was lying behind Brad's back instead of just saying no and then was wrong! But they worked well together. I liked Christina and Claire. Christina was like well...we have erred let's take a break. I like em

                                                      I dont really see what everyone's saying- Claire and her seem on the same level and Claire is just more assertive.

                                                          I live the way you two describe food. It makes me look at it in a different manner.

                                                              Claire does not play well with others, which made me disappointed and frankly sad for Christina. Also, are we going to completely ignore the fact that nobody is ever going to make a radicchio salad with giant halves of squash. I'd be delegated to picking up the buns on the way to thanksgiving if I tried bringing that crap to the table.

                                                                I want to make the brussel sprouts, but I wanted to ask the collective... how do you think bacon would taste added to it? I am intrigued by the date molasses but also I want bacon on my Thanksgiving veggie.

Sweet and savory and oh so good. Super simple too. Good for people who hate sprouts, because it makes them very sweet and covers up any unpleasant taste sprouts can sometimes have.
