Talk about going down swinging.
Jen Carroll, chef at 10 Arts by Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton, vehemently defended her dish of bacon and eggs which the judges felt was bland but nonetheless became the second chef eliminated from Bravo's "Top Chef All-Stars." Carroll said she would fight to the death against criticism of her food and she did. Before she even got around to discussing her dish the feisty chef was already full of attitude, mouthing off to the judges that they were smart enough to know to ask for more plates if they wanted separate plates.
"Philly going down fighting!," Carroll tweeted minutes after the episode. "Chef Jen is forever our All-Star for her amazing food, long-running Top Chef success and of course, her fearless Philly spirit," said the restaurant's facebook page after the show.
