My Kitchen Rules – Peter and Gary’s Turn – Seriously It Is Not That Hard To Cook Beans
So they have six degrees between them, but Peter can’t cut more then one bean at a time. Que? Seriously did they get their degrees over the internet?
Peter and Gary are quite delusional in their own abilities and also quite scathing about the other contestants. Peter is particularly arrogant and condescending saying things like “At least we know how to cook” and querying whether any of the contestants would realise they had used their own stock in the jus.
Their instant restaurant was french themed with a Gold Coast feel. There was plastic, a bit of kitsch, and just lacking in that little bit of class. As Sam said “I was really expecting class and glamour and we just did not get that”, also Nic and Rocco said it felt like a kids table.
Not that you could tell them that, as they say Potato Gratin others say Bake. Seriously same ingredients, saying something in a mangled french accent does not make it taste any better.
What did this pair do in their prep time? They made some pastry and tart filling? As nothing else appeared to be done. Maybe they would have been better putting down their champagne glasses and chopping some vegetables. They have no hope in the MKR kitchen when there is a time limit placed on them.
There menu consisted of entree of Gruyere & Tomato Tarts, main was Beef fillet en feuilletons and duxelles, green beans, and port jus, and for dessert it is Poached Pears Sauterne with Two Sauce.
The judges loved the tart. Pete Evans thought the dish was nearly faultless. He said with a dish like this you have nowhere to hide. Nor could they they hide the part of the tart tin they did not remove from underneath.
However the contestants were not so enthused.
Peter would have justified this with his view that “If they are not familiar with french food they may not understand the flavour combinations”. Really Peter you made a tart with three ingredients, did you get the recipe from the other Gold Coast “foodies” the 4 Ingredient cookbook gals.
And then it was the three hour wait for the main, and it appeared they really could not care less about their guests.
Peter actually expected empathy from them, as he thought they would know what they were going through
Sam is definitely getting frisky with the men around the table and I wonder what her boyfriend’s mum thinks of that. Last night she was trying to get Manu to cook her rabbit, and tonight she wanted to eat Nic.
Finally the main arrived and Pete noted “It looks like meat and three veg but there is only two!”. Most people thought it tasted good, but then they were probably starving.
It was 1.00am before the dessert was served, and Manu and Pete looked irritable. What was bizarre was that they served two pears on each plate each with a different sauce of chocolate and raspberry. As Emma said the dessert did not show creativity or flair.
Pete said the pears are cooked to perfection. However they did not like the two sauces and thought it was one sauce too much. Also for such a classy couple why was there no fork to eat dessert with?
SA gave them a 6, WA gave a 5, NSW gave a 4, Vic gave a 5, Tas gave a 4. For a combined score of 24 out of 50. They blamed strategy. Gary was shocked and insulted.
“As this competition has gone on I have got less faith in people abilities to be food experts,” said Peter.
The judges were not as harsh with Manu giving a nine for entree, six for main, and a five for dessert.
Pete gave a nine for entree, six for main, and four for dessert.
Peter was deluded he thought without the timing issue they would have scored a nine for main. Gary was gutted by the four for dessert. So they got a grand total of 63, which puts them into third position.
Ironically Andrew had brow beaten Emma into giving them a five, when she wanted to give them a four, and now they were in the bottom three. If they had gone with the lower score they would have been equal on the scoreboard.
