The rivals create dishes using trendy ingredients and techniques.

This marks the halfway point of the Star Salvation competition, which means that the remaining hopefuls are just three weeks away from one person claiming redemption and returning to Food Network Star, and in true Salvation fashion, the contest is only getting more demanding.

Trends were the name of the game in this fourth battle, when Joy joined Monterey and Yaku in blending of-the-moment ingredients and showcasing a complementary technique. To successfully marry seaweed, coconut sugar, rainbow carrots and steel-cut oats, they'd have to reimagine traditional uses for these items — and then sell their dishes to judges Alex Guarnaschelli and Eddie Jackson, of course.
