My Kitchen Rules – Tasmania Cooks Again And They Don’t Tank
Megan and Andy were cooking again tonight, and just because they do come across a tad bogan doesn’t mean they don’t know how to cook. Andy is definitely the stronger cook of the pair but they both appear to have some knowledge of flavours and techniques.
For entree it was scallops on pork crackling with salmon roe, main was bouillabaisse, and dessert was sticky date cheesecake with a caramel fudge sauce.
For Andy it was not about the scoreboard it was about letting know Peter and Gary that they were not the only ones who can cook, and in Peter’s mind they probably did not achieve that, but in reality they did.
When entree was served and I appeared to have missed the bit where Pete and Manu arrived, they were having presentation issues, the scallops were falling off the crackling. Also Carla and Tom were sniping from the get go. Carla saying she should have picked up a happy meal on the way as the serving was a little small. What part of entree did she not understand?
Pete thought the entree was exactly what they should have been serving. Manu also said he enjoyed the dish.
Andy is probably the better cook out of the pair, but Megan kind of goes ahead and does the Gordon Ramsay oversighting. However Andy was not happy when she dumped the mussels in randomly.
However she did drag them out again. Manu criticised the dish for not being a bouillabaisse nor the roulle being a proper one, however he did love the dish, as did Pete.
Peter from Qld thought the crab was soggy, but the other Queensland army team thought it was the best dish so far. Tom thought the seafood was not cooked well across the board and the stock tasted like a vegetable broth.
The dessert did not go down well with the judges. It was too sickly. Most of the teams did not like it. However David liked it but he tends to like everything, and Emma liked it as well.
WA scored them a six, Qld academics scored a six, Qld army boys gave them a seven, Vic surprisingly gave a seven, and NZ a six.
This was a combined score of 32 out of 50.
Manu gave an eight for entree, an eight for main, and a five for dessert.
Pete gave a nine for entree, a nine for main, and a four for dessert. Pete is clearly happy at the moment as he has been generous in his scoring this series.
Which gives them a total score of 75 which puts them second on the scoreboard, which means they are safe from elimination.
