Brooke Williamson vs. Kristen Kish: Find out which ladle-wielding lady came out on top!

Ladies and gentlechefs, we have a winner! The season finale of Top Chef: Seattle aired Feb. 28, forcing the final two contestants — Brooke Williamson and Kristen Kish — to whip up masterpieces for hundreds of people, as well as a panel of celebrity judges. The pressure (cooker) was on, and both ladies put in a solid effort. But only one can now be called the Top Chef. Drumroll please…

After four intense rounds, Kristen emerged the winner! Here’s a breakdown of their culinary quarrel:

Round One: Kristen Wins

Kristen got an early head start in round one, earning intense praise from Emeril Lagasse with her “simple and classic” chicken liver mousse.

Round Two: Brooke Wins

This one went to Brooke, as her seared scallop over salt cod puree was a far more adventurous — and, as it turns out, far more delicious — undertaking than Kristen’s cured scallop.

Round Three: Kristen Breaks The Tie

The ladies may have been locked in a tie at this point, but thanks to her bone marrow and celery-root puree, eventual-winner Kristen was able to take the lead from Brooke. Unfortunately for the soon-to-be-runner-up, her vandouvan-fried chicken wings didn’t fly with the judges. (See what I did there?)

Round Four: Kristen Takes It All

Considering Kristen’s significant lead in the competition, Brooke had a lot to make up for in the final round. She attempted to do so with a braised pork cheek with crispy red snapper, collard green slaw and sorrel puree — but was it enough to counter Kristen’s red snapper with leeks, little gem lettuce, uni and shellfish ménage?

Considering, I already said Kristen won, the answer is obviously no.

HollywoodLifers, are you glad Kristen won Top Chef: Seattle, or were you pulling for Brooke?
