My Kitchen Rules – Do Pete And Gary Actually Like Anyone?
“It would give me a sense of enjoyment to beat Emily and Carly, as they are a bit over confident, and quite frankly their cooking is not that good.” said Peter and Gary.
Later they said “There is no love lost between us and them.” Do Pete and Gary actually get on with anyone?
Speaking of not good cooking seriously what were Peter and Gary thinking when they decided to do chicken schnitzel with a vegetable kebab for their pop up restaurant? The two pieces just did not go together. Why not do a gourmet chicken schnitzel sandwich? For all their high end talk tonight’s dish was a bit low end.
Also they Peter and Gary are good at talking themselves up to camera but then said they were not able to spruik themselves on the street as apparently that lacked dignity.
Tonight on My Kitchen Rules the challenge was set in Melbourne and the teams had to set up a pop up restaurant to sell some street food. The judges said the people of Melbourne will decide the winner, but it was actually the team that made the most profit who won.
” We’re natural sales people” Megan and Andy drawled thinking this was going to give them the edge in the pop-up restaurant challenge. It was no surprise that it did not. They made Sang Choy Bow with Prawn Skewers, and apparently it was good but not good enough for them to win.
Steve and David with their Mediteranean Club Sandwich had no hope of winning as they priced it at $3.00 and they did not appear to have that many of them.
Steve and Helen took a risk in Greek filled Melbourne and did a Mezze Platter with Lamb Soulvaki. This pair like the New Zealand team work well together there are no dramatics in their prep time.
Speaking of dramatics the show was trying to make some by pretending there could be some cooking disasters with Carly and Emily’s rice for their Green Chicken Curry, and Jen and Leigh pressure cooking their pork for their tortillas. Both worked out fine.
Carly and Emily were criticised by the judges for making a mild green curry, and Jen and Leigh’s pork tortillas though tasting nice collapsed when they were eaten.
Carla and Thomas did beef and bean tacos with guacomale and salsa. Interesting to know if she got the recipe off her new Mexican boyfriend. Also Thomas does get a bit flustered in the kitchen what was he thinking when he put the lids on the saucepan so their taco sauce could reduce? And if Thomas using a fire starter was an intelligence test he would have failed.
Manu and Pete in the end were critical of their sauce as there was not enough flavour nor had it reduced enough.
Nic and Rocco went with sweet and did profitoroles with chocolate and strawberries. However the twist was deep frying the profiteroles. Serving one that was deep fried and one that was baked. Manu and Pete thought the contrast between the two was good.
Angela and Justine cooked Chocolate Chilli Con Carne which sounded a bit foul but the judges liked it.
Simon and Meg cooked Beef noodles with Pesto Coriander and they were criticised for not having enough sauce.
Emily and Carly who had put a high price point on their curry, and Steve and Helen were the top two with Steve and Helen winning the “peoples choice”. It was no surprise that Peter and Gary were told by Manu and Pete they were up for elimination this week.
