My Kitchen Rules – Sourpuss Melanie Is Never Going To Get Any Flirty Action From Manu
I am always perplexed when contestants on cooking shows where they have submitted a menu announce they have never cooked it before.
With $100,000 prize money on the line wouldn’t you practice your menu a few times?
Clearly not in SA, as Donna announced she had never made ice cream nor cooked with chocolate. Considering they were the main components of her dessert Coconut ice cream and mango salsa, with chocolate barrels it was a bit of a risk.
The rest of their menu was stuffed field mushrooms with chirizo with buffalo mozzarella for entree, and the main was blue fin tuna wrapped with prosciutto.
Looking at the entree the mozzarella didn’t appear to have melted, but Pete thought it was pretty special. However he did not like the balsamic dressing on the tomato on the side.
However, Manu thought the cheese could have been melted a lot more, but again he loved the flavours.
Now Melanie is never going to get any flirty action with Manu if she doesn’t change her attitude. “It hasn’t blown me away” said Mel.
You can tell that by now she is getting on everyones nerves. The WA girls bit back and speaking through gritted teeth and said “everything doesn’t have to be five star.” There also appeared to be a bit of eye rolling including the judge Pete Evans. Also does James speak?
Reade had cut the tuna pieces in different sizes, and hence they were all cooked to a different level.
Manu’s was overdone, but Pete’s was perfect. Kane’s from Victoria was so over done it was like he had canned tuna on his plate.
Donna’s dessert looked great. Manu thought it was beautiful. Pete liked it but thought the dark chocolate was overpowering. He said all he could taste was chocolate. Some people may not consider that a negative thing.
Speaking of negative, Melanie said all she could taste was sweetness.
Qld gave them 6, NSW 7, WA 8, Tas, 6, Vic 5. The combined score was 32. Reade thought that was what it deserved.
Manu gave the entree 7, main 5, and dessert 7.
Pete gave the entree 7, main 8 and dessert 7.
Donna looked disappointed with the score for her dessert. They got a total of 73, and they are sitting third on the board. Someone is going to have to really tank to go below Victoria’s 59. Everyone is hoping that it will be Tasmania who are cooking on tomorrow’s episode.
By the way did anyone else think there was some dodgy editing early in the episode when Donna and Reade pulled into the driveway 15 minutes before they could start their kitchen prep, but in that time managed to unload the car, and set their table?
Also apologies for not blogging on last Wednesday’s episode on the NSW teams, Polish menu, the heat had given me a physical, mental and emotional breakdown..
Please make comments on that episode here as well if you still have the urge to vent.
