Episode Summary

As Alan finishes packing Elmo's lunch, the lights go down and the music goes up. It's Superchef, announcing that Alan is the next contestant on Cast Iron Cooks!

The first challenge is preparing a bowl of P Stew. Alan, Chris, and Elmo throw pickles, peaches, and porridge into a pot, but the results are not pretty. The next challenge is making apple pie using exactly eight apples, but Chris accidently adds pepper along with sugar and cinnamon. The final challenge is to make a Halfgarian Goulash, which is made up of ingredients cut in half. Again…not pretty.

But everyone makes mistakes. The other contestants had some goof-ups, too, and Alan and his assistants end up winning the competition. Bon appétit!
