My Kitchen Rules – To Pip Or Not To Pip That Is The Question
Matt and Melissa deserved extra points for the fabulous warehouse where Matt lives and how they decorated it. Manu looked a tad jealous, maybe that is why he flipped it over the pear pips. Or maybe he was tired after waiting so long for food. But really the supposed barney was a bit over exaggerated, but then again TV Week did say not all of it was shown.
For the record I am on team pip. I don’t think pips needed to be removed. And obviously it was no big deal as both judges gave them nine points each. If the pips had not been in it would Manu given it a perfect ten?
Speaking of points some needed to be deducted for the three hours to get the entree out. Now I know they had a bit of a disaster with the entree of the Yabbie and Leek Ravioli served with a bisque, but I still don’t get why it took them so long to prep and cook. I think Matt was right in chucking out the yabbies that had been surrounded by broken glass, but still cannot get the time lag.
The portion was small and it did not really please the teams, the judges seemed to like it more as they got the best bits. They really must control the alcohol on this show as they then had to wait two hours for the main, and they all seemed relatively sober. I would have been speaking swahili by then.
The main was rabbit served with roast vegetables. Surprisingly no on had issues about actually eating rabbit, even though they were not enamoured by the dish.
Pete Evans thought the vegetables on the plate with the rabbit did not add anything. At least they gave them veges which some mains on this show have not had any.
Thankfully they put on a killer main of the Poached Pear with Praline and vanilla icecream, which looked delicious. The other teams punished them with the lowest team score of twenty, however Manu and Pete kept them in the competition. I think this is a good thing, they stuffed up tonight, but I think they are real contenders.
Next week looks like it is going to be a change of pace with all the teams now back in the My Kitchen Rules set. I have decided I am barracking for anyone in the second lot of teams, as they were a much more interesting bunch.
