My Kitchen Rules – Peter and Gary Cook Again
“You say galantine, I say ballantine” says Manu well that is what he should have said. After hearing Gary and Peter be continually pretentious with their comments on how the guests around the table would not know what a galantine was, it appeared they did not either.
Manu put them straight and said that it was a ballantine. Gary blamed the thirty year old Woman’s Weekly Cookbook he had been using.
I still don’t get why this pair are so pretentious. Why bother saying the french for main course? Also they had a dig about the other teams serving sparkling wine but calling it champagne.
Entree was moreton bay bugs with garlic and lemon and fresh baguettes, main was Duck Galantine with Orange Sauce and dessert was Rhubarb Creme Brulee.
They were having a better prep time but not without some dramas Peter sounded like he was dreadfully sick.
Also there their electricity went so the prep clock was stopped while the electrician was called. Did the load from the filming overload the system, however normally the production crew take their own generator.
Peter was clearly not in a good mood, and this was not helped when Gary got water over some of the creme brulees.
With the entree Manu thought there was too much garlic, and Pete said the seafood was overcooked. Also Manu put the boot into the shop bought baguette said it was bad bread.
They still took a long time between entree and main course, but not as long as previously. They topped and tailed snow peas one by one, they had to make and reduce the orange sauce, and also take the string out of the chicken.
Pete liked the main but did not like the sauce. Also he would have liked some sexier ingredients in it like truffles or foie gras. Manu thought the sauce was too acidic.
Thomas said the sauce and snow peas were a write off, and Scott thought he was trying to influence people around the table. I do like it how Thomas is trying to manipulate the competition, which is not a bad idea for him, as we have not seen any sign of him being actually able to cook.
Pete loved the rhubarb in the creme brulee, and Manu thought it was a brulee how it should be.
Then it was back to the MKR kitchen, and the judges scored first.
Manu scored them a five for entree, a five for main, and a nine for dessert.
Pete scored them a three for entree, a six for main, and a nine for dessert.
The teams scored them 32 out of 50. Which gave then a grand total score of 69 which meant they were safe. This meant Emma and Andrew were eliminated from the competition. Also it was revealed that by Meg and Simon being on the top of the scoreboard they were safe from the next elimination.
