My Kitchen Rules – Now THAT Was A Twist
Can someone call PETA and tell them to stop flour bombing Anna Wintour and get to Adelaide to save a goldfish placed in a wine glass by South Australian team Mel and Pete. This was a decoration to reinforce their Left Of Centre theme. Thankfully no dancing bears with chains around their necks came out.
This was a much anticipated episode of My Kitchen Rules as Mel and Paul, have been seen to be a bit snarky towards the other contestants, however they have been scoring the other teams highly.
But really before we get into their menu I think we will just fast forward to the end of the show to the twist, and really did anyone see THAT coming? Ok so we knew the show was being broadcast until Easter, but five new teams was really unexpected. I hope some them come with personalities and/or drinking issues to liven up the party a bit.
Also I hope Channel Seven send me a press kit on the new contestants to make my life a bit easier in finding out who these actual teams are.
In fact I am a bit disappointed I am going to have to wait another three weeks before I see any of the teams cook in that luscious My Kitchen Rules set. In fact I would even settle for a Masterclass by Manu Feidel and Pete Evans.
Anyway back to the dinner party. You did have to feel sorry for Mel and Pete as the weather was wild, and I suspect they may have got some help with their marquee to make it more weather proof from the producers, otherwise it would have very uncomfortable for the contestants and the judges.
There menu was quite sophisticated:
- Risotto with Broadbeans and Pancetta;
- Venison with a Bloody Mary Sauce;
- Cherry Berry Tasting Plate.
The producers were trying to create drama by showing us Western Australia’s couple Marc and Natalie faces as each course was being tasted. I thought Marc was going a bit over the top, but then he probably knew it was his last episode on the show, and why not go out in a blaze of angst.
The risotto was flavoursome though Pete would have liked them to double peel the broadbeans. Maybe they ran out of time. The venison did look fantastic but the judges and contestants were mixed about the bloody mary sauce on it, Obviously they like vodka as it made it into the dessert as well in the strawberry and fig martini.
Mel and Natalie gave them 7
Gen and Tanja – 8
Clint and Noah – 6
Moss and Gabe – 7. By the way how tired did Gabe look?
This gives them a total of 28.
Manu Feidel scores were entree 7, main 8, and dessert 8
Pete Evans scores were entree 7, main 9, and dessert 7.
They slammed dunked it and received a total of 74, leaving Gabe and Mossy second on 66. This meant Marc and Natalie were eliminated.
We only had a bout ten seconds to miss them before we were introduced to the five new teams.
What do you think of the twist? Oh and does anyone know if the goldfish survived the evening?
