'Rocco's Dinner Party' Morphs Into a Culinary Fashion Show (VIDEO)

'Rocco's Dinner Party'Food and fashion are regularly the focus of programming on Bravo, so it made perfect sense for 'Rocco's Dinner Party' (Wednesdays, 10PM on Bravo) to combine the two. Contestants were asked to make dishes for a "fashion-forward dinner party," creating dishes that were couture and ready to wear out of the same featured ingredient.

The couture side featured meals like black and white sesame-crusted tuna, new potatoes with crème fraiche and caviar, and chocolate ganache with sweet cream. On the ready-to-wear side was tuna salad, potatoes au gratin, and mint s'mores.

Executive private chef Frank Otte wound up griping about how he had so many culinary rules to follow. That didn't sit well with Brooklyn caterer Sharon Robustelli. "If Frank doesn't win, it would just be so cool 'cuz he talks too much smack," she said. In other words, she wanted to see Frank's couture get a dressing down.
