My Kitchen Rules – Sammy And Bella Through To The Final
As predicted the NSW team of Sammy and Bella are through to the final, and seriously they are going to have to serve up cooked sashimi to lose on Wednesday night.
They were going head to head with Daniela and Stefania tonight in the semis, which was a pity as I would have liked to have seen both these teams in the final. The set up of the semi’s has been the big flaw in an otherwise good season of My Kitchen Rules. It should have been a challenge for four tonight, and the remaining three going head to head in the second semi on Tuesday night. If you are going to rip off Masterchef Australia, please do it properly.
By the way TV Tonight has an article about Gary Mehigan having a go at My Kitchen Rules for ripping off Masterchef Australia.
Tonight the challenge was to due a three course meal of their choosing.
Daniela and Stefania did a potato and ricotta ravioli with a mint and butter sauce, osso buco, and a zucotto with chocolate mascarpone. I was surprised by the good feedback their ossoc buco received. Personally I thought it was an easy dish to be cooking at this stage of the competition. I am sure Mel and James teeth was gnashing at the unfairness of it all.
Also I thought the meat they used did not look like veal, and was surprised they managed to get so much tenderness and flavour out of it in an hour and a half. Their ravioli did look delicious, but the dessert looked a bit amateur hour. However, the judges gave high marks to make us think the best teams had made it to the semis.
Bella and Sammy’s menu was far more intricate with schezuan soup, duck breast and duck sausage, and spiced creme caramel. Those girls know how to cook. I was surprised by the size of the sausage but maybe they come large in Poland.
The duck was cooked perfectly. Manu Feildel was having issues with the soup, and the pineapple that accompanied the creme caramel. Maybe he wanted Stefania and Daniela in the final, as it meant he has now lost his flirting partner in crime. Go Stefania.
The Polish girls scored 53 points to the WA ladies who scored 50. I would love to see Stefania and Daniela getting their own cooking show or segment, they had great chemistry between them.
Tomorrow night between Kane and Lee, and Ann-Marie and Nick looks like a dogs breakfast, with the “babes” being shot out in rapid succession.
