My Kitchen Rules: The B&B Challenge
Tonight they were cooking for Bed and Breakfast owners and their families. The team that receives the most votes wins and is safe from elimination. Manu and Pete gets to pick the worst two dishes and those teams will be in a cook off.
They have to cook for fifty people. I love the way they rock up to the B&B’s with two half full shopping bags each. Coles shopping bags must use the same technology as Dr Who’s tardis.
However I don’t think the fifty people actually taste all the dishes so the B&B people were voting on the best dish of the ones they tasted.
Helen and Steve made Mediteranean Pancakes. I know I am meant to like this pair, and Steve is allegedly funny but they just seem like they force themselves to be jovial. Hopefully viewers will get to know them better to be able to form an opinion as they have not had much screen time.
Manu liked the flavour of the buckwheat as he thought it was different and I thought they were unlucky to not win.
Megan and Andy made a Bacon and Leek with Gruyere Tart with Roasted Tomatoes. Megan forgot to prick the pastry, her poor attention to detail is quite funny. However the judges liked it, but they said the pastry was not cooked properly.
Carla and Thomas made Honey Chicken and Roasted Almond Filo with Blueberry Maramalade and goats cheese. When will this pair learn not to put so many ingredients in their dish, it sounded foul. Pete could not keep a neutral face when judging it he looked like he was about to heave. Manu said he liked the jam! Pete said the presentation was good, however said it was not enjoyable to eat.
Jennifer and Leigh were smart and going for few ingredients but high technical skill with Slow Cooked Eggs with green sauce. Unfortunately for them their thermometer broke so this was an issue as they had to keep the water temperature at 62 degrees. However they found another thermometer.
The judges loved the dish and the egg was cooked perfectly. The presentation was also appealing.
Carly and Emily went with a Blueberry Brioche Cup with Labne Yoghurt, the judges thought it was a great dish.
Peter and Gary are making crepes with veloute, it was interesting to see if they would actually get it done in time considering the time it takes them to chop ingredients. However they did. Manu gave them a tickle up about the constant cooking of french classics from the 70’s and told them to be a bit more modern if they wanted to stay in the competition for any length of time.
Peter also wanted Sam and Jillian to be at the bottom as he felt they were the ones that stabbed them in the back when they did their first instant restaurant. Peter clearly was repressing the memory of his moaning about the time it took for Sam and Jillian to put out their main.
The judges thought it was very old school but thought the flavour was not too bad.
Scott and David made Field Mushrooms with asparagus, poached eggs, and roasted tomatoes with David’s home made chutney. The judges thought there was a lot going on but it worked.
The WA girls, Angela and Justine, cooked Baked Pancetta Eggs with Italian Baked Beans and Corn Muffins. Pete thought the muffin let the dish down as it was doughy. However they thought the rest of the plate was beautiful.
Nic and Rocco cooked Bacon, Egg and Spinach parcels. Pete thought it was not the standard they delivered in the restaurant. Pete said there was no wow in the dish.
Jillian and Sam were cooking French Toast with Banana Cream. The judges thought the bread had not been soaked enough as it was dry, and they did not like the flavour of the banana cream. Manu thought it tasted like unripe bananas and far too gelatinous.
Carly and Emily won the peoples choice award and were safe from elimination.
Peter was not happy about it as he thought it was wrong that they won with a dessert. Long time viewers of these shows like this and Masterchef Australia know the majority of time the sweet dish wins, particularly if kids are allowed to vote.
It was no surprise that Carla and Thomas would be in the elimination cook off as the dish was inedible. However the look on Thomas’s face was priceless he looked so angry, however I could not work out whether he was cranky with Carla whose dish it was or the judges for not being able to taste their brilliance.
