Last night on Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars, Elmo, Cookie Monster and Telly held their own Quickfire challenge in which the chefs had to create the very best cookie as judged by our furry friends:
This part of last night's episode was totally hilarious- Elmo sweetly requested a cookie "perhaps with some zucchini," to which Cookie Monster responded, "Uuuuuuccckk!" He of course requested a cookie with "chocolate chippies." Telly seemed quite serious, while Elmo had fun goofing around with all of the chefs, and Cookie Monster, who just couldn't wait for the cookies to be done, began to eat the tablecloth! Once he did have some cookies to try, he appeared to enjoy them immensely, and crumbs were flying everywhere! I just loved their "cookie critique," in which Cookie Monster described one of the chef's cookies as "a bit dry," and Elmo explained that while Antonia's cookie was one of his favorites, it looked like cow chips, which he repeated, enunciating very carefully, COW CHIPS!
Dale's sweet and salty cookie won over everyone- I wouldn't mind getting that recipe...
This video will give you a little sample of the antics last night:

I was rather perplexed that Mike, in his entire career, had never made cookies before! How is that possible?
Oh, and by the way... we learned that coconut milk is apparently good for both human skin AND monster fur!
