Celeb Come Dine With Me Australia – Hopefully No Cookbooks Will Be Commissioned From That Episode
Pru obviously misinterpreted the come in Come Dine With Me Australia as she kicked off the four celeb dinner parties with an orgy of rude food and it was interesting to see how uncomfortable the other three younger cast members were about her lewdness.
At some stages of the show it did look like she was auditioning for US reality show Extreme Cougars, but when Josh Thomas got drunk and was over come by the beauty of Kris that was seen as endearing.
Josh also thought it was offensive for people to comment on on who a person is married too as Prue had about Chloe. Usually I woud agree with that but Chloe kept on talking about her husband, Matt Rogers, and the opening montage explaining who she was included her husband, and he was also on camera on the day she was hosting.
Conversely Kris Smith was described as an English league legend and not one mention of his ex-wife Danni Minogue which is how he found his fame here in Australia.
This show is not all about the food however we should discuss the dinner parties.
First up was Pru’s Orgy Rude Food menu. Starting with rocket fuel martinis, and oyster shooters neither of these were popular, however she pulled it together by the main courses with a saucy cheese sandwich for entree, with seafood stew for main, and a dessert of stewed pears. Though not sure why she left the skin of the pears on.
A tip for people thinking of replicating her party, if you are going to have a fruit and vegetable centrepiece make sure the cucumber is not flaccid like hers were as it is not great feng shui.
Narrator James Valentine who was the narrator did comment that her apartment was a bit like a seventies swingers party, thankfully for the shell shocked celebs there was no bowl to put their keys into.
Chloe Maxwell was hoping they would not have to eat sushi off Pru’s naked body.
Pru ended up being scored 23 points.
The next dinner party was Chloe’s up at the Gold Coast. This girl had hygiene issues. Pumpkin had fallen on the floor which she put back in and cutting knives were not swapped so there was a cross contamination of flavour. Stawberry and garlic did not pack the culinary punch she would have like.
First up was Roast Pumpking and Walnut Salad, main was lamb racks, dessert was Banana Bread with bought lemon curd.
The next dinner party was at young fogey and comedian Josh Thomas’s house. Now expectations were high on this meal as he had been a contestant on Celebrity Masterchef. He started off with scallops, followed by beef bourgeion and a rose pannacotta.
He also had hygiene issues, washing off dropped meat, and letting his dog all around the dinner table. However all the guests like he is cooking.
Finally it was Kirs Smith’s turn to host his first ever dinner party. He kept it simple a spicy prawn cocktail, bangers and mash and apple crumble with store bought custard.
He did say there was no one like his mum which may scare off potential women. Pru could not contain her inner conservatism and screeched at Josh for being a left winger. Chloe and Kris knocked marks off the dinner party score because of the political chatter.
Josh got 22 – just goes to show the best food does not necessarily win the prize.
Kris was making his first dinner party with a spicy prawn cocktail, Bangers and mash, and apple crumble. As expected it was pretty simple but they did not criticise him for it, even though he was using supermarket custard.
Chloe ended up winning but I hope she does not think she is capable of putting out a cook book now.
The non-celeb version of Come Dine With Me Australia starts on the 8 January.
