My Kitchen Rules – Masterchef Gets Paris, MKR – Darwin
Well it wasn’t the glamour of cooking beside the Seine but they did have the beauty of the outback. Tonight the four teams left in this week had to cook in The Ghan train’s kitchen.
Daniela and Stefania, and Bill and Alex just got to sit and relax as they were safe. But where were was Ash and Kel who are up for elimination. Have they been locked in the baggage cabin or flown straight to Darwin?
The challenge was to cook for a dish for the passengers on The Ghan. Well actually they were being a bit disingenous as it must of been only some of the passengers or The Ghan is going broke.
Their roles was swapped and the teams that cooked the savoury last night had to cook the dessert.
Sammi and Bella made Moroccan Spiced Chicken. Pete freaked them out with their sauce when he suggested it was too hot. Basically he said remember you are not just cooking for us. Which was code for you are cooking for older white people, which are the demographic of The Ghan.
Pete thought the sauce was a bit confusing to the palette. He did like the chicken. Manu thought it was enjoyable but questionable.
I loved the way some of the passengers said “I love it” but left half of it on their plates.
Esther and Ali cooked Beef with potato gratin and spinach. This went down well with the tourists. Pete and Manu thought the spinach was not fabulous, but the beef was perfectly cooked.
Ann-Marie and Nick were cooking dessert and they made mille feille with mango coulis, and a lime and macadamia sand. I thought it was a pretty sophisticated dessert. But it would not be Ann-Marie and Nick if there wasn’t tiffing in the kitchen. I am wondering if the endearment they use of calling each other babe is starting to be a bit of a passive aggressive thing between them. “Yes Babe”, “Can you get the pastry babe” and so forth.
Anyway their dessert looked delicious and their cream did not melt.
Not unlike Kane and Lee’s whose cinnamon cream melted between the chocolate pancakes. They had been blaming the hotness of the kitchen, but the pancakes must not have cooled off enough. I wasn’t sure of their whole concept. It had cinnamon cream, chocolate ganache, brandy snap (for that bit of crunch?), and strawberry coulis.
I certainly wasn’t surprised when they landed in the elimination challenge again. So it will be Victoria versus Victoria.I suspect Kane and Lee’s time has come.
As they said they were the king and queen of the elimination challenges. An no I am not going to go their on that statement.
But the real cliff hanger is which team is going to be eliminated tomorrow night? Could it be Bill and Alex as they were not seen in the preview for the episode. However, Stefania and Daniela are the only ones in the show with kids which may mean they are the ones that have to leave.
I seriously have no idea.
Kane and Lee’s chocolate pancakes looked dry, but their cream melted on the pancakes. The pancakes must have still been warm fo rit to
Kane & Lee are the king and queen of cook offs.
