My Kitchen Rules – OutBack Cooking
It was off to the Outback tonight for the remaining team of My Kitchen Rules. First there was the “dumper” challenge as Manu Feildel says it. It was a damper challenge and some of them did look like dumps.
They needed to make either a sweet or savoury damper with a sauce. They must have been briefed on how to make it and use an outdoor oven otherwise it would have been a total disaster.
They only had 30 minutes to do it in, and if you won the team got to sit out the rest of the challenges for the week.
Kel and Ash had a disaster with their feta damper with onion jam. I don’t think they will be moving to the country anytime soon. The advertised big temper tantrum from Ash was just him throwing one thing, so that was an anti-climax.
Ann-Maree and Nick are hitting their straps with a damper with strawberries and cream.
However the winners were Bill and Alex with their damper of sage, rosemary and thyme served with a chilli tomato sauce and egg. Lucky for them they get to sit it out for the rest of the week.
The people’s choice challenge was having to cook for twenty farmers. Each team was given either the entree, main or dessert to cook and it had to be cooked on an outdoor oven.
I was hoping one of the challenges would involve indigenous cooking, but maybe that will be tomorrow night.
Bill and Alex had the power to choose who would pick which course, and they picked Sammi and Bella to do desserts as they knew it would be their week point.
They were right their pancake with chocolate ganache looked delicious but apparently the sauce was all bitter.
Kane and Lee’s lamb stew looked particularly unappetizing. Also they stuffed up by serving corn cobs, as no one would pick them up on TV.
Kel and Ash had undercooked spatchcock, and also the watermelon salad did not go well with the bird.
Conversely Ann-Maree and Nick were calm tonight and cooked lamb cutlets with tomato, bocconcini on rosemary sticks and got great feedback.
Stefania and Daniela cleverly did a involtini which is cooked in a tomato sauce so gives them more control while cooking them.
Esther and Ali’s butterscotch dumplings with custard looked like lambs brains on the plate but apparently they were delicious.
The winner of the people’s choice was Stefania and Daniela and their dish did look great.
