My Kitchen Rules – Kel and Ash The Ones Who Had To Leave
God I am thick, last night in my blog post I query where Kel and Ash are as they are not spotted on The Ghan, and do I twig at all? NO. Clearly I learnt nothing from all those Nancy Drew books I read in my teen years.
It was Kel and Ash who had to leave as Kel had lost sight in her right eye and they had to leave the competition. Well they wanted to stay but apparently the producers were not comfortable with it. The condition was from a long standing medical issue.
After they had given their farewell speeches and the tears had been shed, I am sure all the viewers were sitting there like I was thinking OK so what is going to happen in the next 45 minutes.
Manu and Pete revealed all teams would be cooking and the winner will mean they are safe from elimination next week.
By the way how many bullets can Kane and Lee dodge? I was sure they would have been eliminated tonight.
The challenge for tonight was two teams had cook mudcrab for entree, two teams cook barramundi for main, and tropical fruit for dessert.
Kane and Lee cooked salt and pepper crab, and the judges loved it. Daniela and Stefania cooked chilli mud crab, but it was undercooked.
For mains Sammi and Bella cooked barramundi on crushed potatoes and pea soup, which looked delicious. Nick and Ann-Marie cooked macadamia crusted barramundi on a lentil and vegetable salad. Nick spent ages fiddling with the fish fillets, and their dish looked a bit ordinary, but the flavour was there.
The two teams who got dessert had no hope in winning, as they had to cook with tropical fruit. Yes it is nice but it was going to be hard to get a wow factor in 60 minutes. Esther and Ali made a passionfruit syrup cake which looked dry. Bill and Alex’s Zabaglioni was a dud, as it was not cooked enough. There was certainly enough effort put in with Bill putting a litre of sweat into it as he stirred it. The judges could only take one spoonful of it.
The winner unsurprisingly were Sammi and Bella. I thought that was fair. Considering Kane and Lee were meant to be up for elimination tonight it would have been a bit unfair if they were now safe for next week.
