-Hi, food fans. Alton Brown here for the
“Cutthroat Kitchen” post show, here with our judge of
the day, Mr. Simon Majumdar. Why are we dressed like– Well, like this? Because, of course, this
is part 1 of the Time Warp Tournament, which is the 1950s. And I thought that today we had
something interesting, which was that the
gentleman that won, he got all the interesting
sabotages of the day. So I thought that we would
literally pilgrimage, if you will, and walk in
the steps of Chef Gentile and all of his sabotages. Now, for Round 1, we decided to
do something that, of course, was a huge fad here in the ’50s
in America, which was phone booth stuffing. So three of our chefs today
had to get stuck and spend the entire time
in a phone booth, doing all of their
cooking, rolling around station to station. Hey, telephone.
It’s for you. Answer. Hello I’m busy.
Take a message. Hello.
Hello. Take a message. Hello. I know you’re dressed
as basically Sinatra, but there was a much
bigger star in the ’50s. His name was Elvis Presley. Of course.
So hop on up. The greatest. You’re going to
channel the King. Now, here’s the thing. He lost all of his ingredients,
and to get ingredients back, he had to show dance moves. Oh, yeah, you can even
use the microphone. But you gotta give
us dance moves, and then to show
their appreciation, the audience would
throw him ingredients. So you’ve gotta do a dance
move or you don’t get anything. -Do you want–
-Yes. – –a little hipster.
-Yes. There you go.
-See? I got an orange. I have no dance moves, but I’ve
got to get these ingredients. So I just kind of
hop around aimlessly. Twisty, all right. Butter. Let’s see butter. Elvis would not be proud. A major event of the
’50s, perhaps the biggest, was the event that
really started the space race and the race to the moon. Bring in the Sputnik. Right over there you go. So here was the deal. Besides having to get
all of his ingredients by dancing basically
which, you know, I can completely see
you having to do, Chef Gentile had to do all of
his cooking on this Sputnik. Oh, wow. For the second round. So he could heat it, but then
he had to actually cook on it. CHEF GENTILE: So I cut the
onion rings, take the tomatoes, and I kind of shish
kebab them out onto the leg of the
Sputnik, and then I get the so-called meatloaf
onto the side of the Sputnik. And you know what? This might actually work out. Oh, my god. What is that? I wish I had an
answer for that. So we thought that you might
like to try to maybe fry an egg or cook some bacon. I think this might work. ALTON BROWN: You ready? SIMON MAJUMDAR: Go for it. Go for it.
-Hold on. Now, remember. Very, very, very hot. SIMON MAJUMDAR:
So we’ll do– oh. See? Oh, now this is not quite as
circular as one would like. That’s not a circle at all. Well, it will be
when I’m finished. ALTON BROWN: I mean,
there’s nothing even quasi-circular about it. Oh, you’re making a box. I’m making a
little box, you see. All right. So now you’ve gotten flour
and stuff all over the middle. Your egg was going to stick. So do you want to oil
that in the middle? I’m going to put a little
bit of oil in there. OK. God. I thought “Good
Eats” had finished. Oh, “Good Eats” will
never really be finished. SIMON MAJUMDAR: So we’ll
put a little oil in there. ALTON BROWN: I still
have an army of people. See how it sizzles? ALTON BROWN: It sizzles. Look at the sizzling. You have created a dough fryer. And there goes your egg. SIMON MAJUMDAR: See? That’s what I would do. ALTON BROWN: And there,
there goes the egg. Do you want to look around,
leave that there for now? Yeah. OK. But I’ve got something
else that I need you to do. Take off your
apron if you would. And I’m going to say
this only because I know you’ve heard it before. Please put this dress on. So just step in.
SIMON MAJUMDAR: What steps in? ALTON BROWN: What? You can do whatever you want. SIMON MAJUMDAR: Lower. ALTON BROWN: So. SIMON MAJUMDAR: Right. ALTON BROWN: Now,
does this dress remind you of anything from the ’50s? It it kind of reminds me
of the greatest sex symbol of all time, apart
from me, obviously. Oh, yes, it does. Oh, you’re going
to– do you want me to sing “Happy Birthday”
to the president or something? ALTON BROWN: No.
That’s OK. Do you remember the white
halter dress that Marilyn wore? And you remember
there was a moment where a subway went
under the subway grate and her dress blew up? I do. I’d rather– oh. As long as you don’t ask
me to take my trousers off, I’m all right.
-No. No. No one here wants you to
take your trousers off. Now, imagine you’re doing all
of your prep on this table. Now, imagine that
you can’t touch your dress with your hands. Hello, Alton. At least buy me dinner. Oh, it’s rather nice. There’s a cooling effect. That’s all the time that
we have for today on the “Cutthroat Kitchen” post show. Thanks for watching. Please continue watching
