Brandi Chastain CV: Won Olympic Gold, Won World Cup, Whacked by Christopher Moltisanti

Actually, the verb that will be added to her résumé is Chopped, because the USWNT legend made it all the way to the final round of the show's Tournament of Stars before losing to former Sopranos actor Michael Imperioli. Though she narrowly missed winning $50,000 for her charity, the Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative (BAWSI), Brandi Chastain showed a lot of guile in that pressure-packed kitchen.

If you missed the show, those in the States can watch it here. Here is the full play-by-play, erm, menu card of her final showing....

Appetizer round basket ingredients: A 10-pack of drive-thru tacos, escarole, dragon fruit & vanilla ice cream

Dish a la Brandi: Deconstructed taco with escarole and dragon fruit crema

Dinner round: Peking duck, Brussel sprouts, cotton candy & veal demi-glaze

Dish a la Brandi: Fried duck and bacon wontons with sweet potato mash and a sprouts slaw

Dessert round: Blueberry goat cheese, pecans, churros & Champagne

Dish a la Brandi: Apple carrot cake with champagne vanilla bean ice cream and a blueberry goat cheese pecan sauce

...19 hrs later. NSC withdrawal kicking in. Root Beer is not strong enough for this. Time to bust into the rum and Zedd-Clarity on repeat.
