I'm pretty sure that it was one of the judges at the judging portion who told the bottom three that the Days cast had not seen the egg in the raviolo dish before.
This is from Gail Simmons' blog on the Bravo website:
The exact wording may have been that the cast didn't get or understand the egg yolk, but that would indicate a lack of familiarity with the dish. It is designed so that when you cut into the raviolo, the yolk oozes out and adds its richness to the sauce. (It's similar to how the yolk from a poached egg adds to the dressing of a frisee salad.)

||I don't understand that whole discussion. I mean, these people are celebrities. Some, like Deidre, Drake and Peggy, have been in the business for, like, ever. Lol. Yet they make it sound like these people spend their lives at In n' Out Burger. I'm sure they're often eating at upscale establishments!|

Frankly it reminds me of when I took a graduate course with "artists" who lived so far up their own asses all they could do was spew bullshit like that about how people just don't understand their work. Or people who act like primetime dramas are automatically better than silly little daytime soaps, which I think may play into that conversation a bit because you'd better believe that wouldn't be part of the discussion (not in the same way) if they were cooking for, say, the cast of "Game of Thrones."
It's just...casual arrogance. I take it as developing when people don't feel like the outside world validates them enough, therefore they have to validate themselves constantly, or create this whole separate world that lives above everyone else. At least Gail sort of gets it, in a way. Though I'd argue there really is no relevance to this whole "more refined palates would get it" concept. I'm a populist that way.
That kind of comment really bugs me, apparently. I must be having flashbacks.

||^^ Exactly!! GREAT point about soaps vs. primetime, and also, it's such an easy cop-out to say that their dishes would have gone over better for a different audience. Right, the dream audience in their minds who would automatically like their dish as a favorite. The art of being a chef is to please OTHER PEOPLE. If you don't do that, you haven't succeeded. That's the whole point of the show.|

Thanks for posting the clip. I loved seeing that. Don't know if I could have eaten any of that food,but .......loved seeing the actors as themselves!
