'Just Desserts' recap: Food and fashion collide

October 14, 2010 |  2:50 pm

Morgan Last night the renowned Sherry Yard of Spago paid a visit to  "Just Desserts," judging challenges based on two of my favorite things: souffles and shoes.

For the quickfire, each chef presented their own version of the delicate egg-based French dish, and although Yigit's winning souffle seemed lovely, nothing looked as luscious as Ludo's dark chocolate rendition. For the elimination, the remaining pasty chefs were to design edible fashion inspired by a pair of shoes.

The chefs were given a bonkers 8-hour time limit to design, and they also had to create petit-fours accessories to complement their outfits. Danielle and Heather C. seemed confused by the challenge and used vegetables rather than pastry skills to craft their dresses. They veered so far from the show's dessert theme that they might as well have presented Gaga's meat dress to the judges.

Regardless of Zach's experience designing chocolate clothing for the Salon au Chocolat, Morgan came out on top. He put together every woman's must-have, a sultry LBD (little black dress) that paired perfectly with the blood-red pumps, a spiced raspberry ruby ring and red-hot cinnamon macaron earring.
