    Sous vide is like a slow-cooking technique in low temperature water. In Top Chef, it's been used extensively and in season 3 Hung was known as the "Sous vide king"

    Who's driving Carla's car?

    Carla?

    Or Casey?

    AGAIN, Carla allows Casey to decide a course! WTH?? CASEY LOST, Carla!
    IMO, Casey is really over-stepping her role here.

    Sous vide is basically cooking a protein sealed in a bag in water at a precise temperature for a set amount of time. Its not the easiest thing to do if you don't have the right equipment. The temperature is usually very low and I don't think a stove can get that low.

    Hung and Richard did it by using the water heaters that you saw in science class, lol!

    Carla is taking too many of Casey's ideas to heart. The reason she started winning in the last half of the season was that she started trusting her instincts and making simple, great food. I don't know if all these risks are going to help or hurt her.

    Carla is slipping back into the second guessing thing. Cook your meal....let Casey assist. Casey also should have controlled her thoughts a bit. She had her chance...this was someone else's chance. They are showing Carla a lot...either she surprises and hits a home run...or she flops big time. I'm praying it's the former.
