My Kitchen Rules – Cakegate

Ok I have been known to beat stories up but nothing to compare with this My Kitchen Rules yarn. Apparently there is controversy over the chocolate mousse recipe the Victorian boys Clint and Noah cooked. Apparently the recipe on the official My Kitchen Rules was wrong and people who are cooking it are miffed they spent a lot of money on ingredients when it was a flop.

The Daily Telegraph says people are wanting compensation from the website. They cannot be serious. Plenty of times I have cooked recipes from cookbooks and the internet they have been duds, I have never thought about asking for my money back.

Apparently there is also some controversy about the marinated prawn recipe that Manu Feidel gave 10/10. I had a look but could not work out what it was.

I think the prawn recipe controversy was about the fact that there was no actual cooking process involved, as the prawn were already cooked and the dressing was made and poured over at the last minute. And for this they got 10/10 from Manu? Crazy.

I thought the media were scrapping the bottom of the barrel when they recently used Dickgate. Cakegate???!! As one respondent to the Daily Telegraph website said: “Boo hoo, just go buy a cake”.

The entree controversy? Have to agree. Even I, with my culinary equivalent of black thumbs, could have put that together. Cannot see how that deserved a 10.

Recipe didn’t work? Expensive ingredients? Poor dears. I can just see the class action for stress induced psychological trauma.
