Sticking To It

Just how the graham cracker crumbles in the Appetizer Round depends on how the chefs can recover from setbacks. One contestant struggles to plate after suffering a cut, while an opponent learns that flashy knife work may not yield the best results.

Then the two finalists endeavor to make coffee bean desserts that are good to the last bite. (Episode: CQ0306H)
