“A powerful image to remember the message for a long time”, sums up chef Rasmus Munk. Wednesday evening in “Top Chef” this Danish two-star chef presented a special challenge to the candidates: to denounce or defend a cause through a shock dish.

The preparation of the dishes by Mickaël Braune in Philippe Etchebest’s team and that of Arnaud Delvenne, a member of Glenn Viel’s brigade, felt like déjà vu. When the two candidates’ proposals were welcomed by their mentors and guest of the day, netizens were surprised by the disturbing similarities to certain proposals already served up by Rasmus Munk. To denounce the problems of intensive farming, Mickaël Braune placed a syringe filled with gravy on his plate. But “My good pig”, so named by the chef of Philippe Etchebest’s brigade, looks like a dish from the Danish chef. In 2019, Rasmus Munk offered a pork recipe on his menu at his restaurant, voted best in Europe, with the sauce being squirted into a syringe. “A Manifesto Against Antibiotics” as explained The world back then.

In Don du sang, Don de soi, the Glenn Viel Brigade candidate wanted to campaign for the lifting of restrictions on homosexuals wishing to donate their blood. In order to serve his dish with an impressive look, this young Belgian chef has placed a large bag of blood filled with a red fruit coulis with a perfect likeness. A concept that chef Munk came up with back in 2017. The Danish court promoted organ donation.
