My Kitchen Rules – The Zoo Challenge Saw Some Teams Hit While Others Missed
My Kitchen Rules broke the entertainment rule of not working with either children or animals, last episode they did both, however the animals were behind bars. The teams were taken to Taronga Zoo where the brief was to serve a dish that was healthy and delicious for school children.
Again in this challenge the food was variable. There was overcooked, undercooked, dropped food and just plain weird dishes plated up.
The children got to vote for their favourite dish, and the team that received the most votes from them would be safe from elimination and the worst dish as judged by the Pete Evans and Manu would find themselves in the elimination challenge.
Angela and Melina are like the team with nine lives they again dished up a not very appetising meal of vegetable muffins including a psychotic smiley face on top of it. Ashlee and Sophia were quite right when they were quipping the “pupils were dilated” and ” it looks like it would get you in the bath”.
The Italian Real Housewives were also quite funny when they showing how the kids were just by passing their table turning their nose up. They were right to, even the judges did saying it was too dense and the side of popcorn did not go with nor was it cooking.
Jenna and Joanna made Crumbed Chicken with Sweetcorn with Orange and Thyme. The first time they took it out of the oven it was still pink, and also the second time when Joanna said it was ready it still looked pink. However they did win children’s choice much to their excitement.
Andi and Josh also received great feedback regarding their Baboon Beef Burgers and Zoochini fries and the judges were right there will be a heap of parents downloading that recipe today. The judges also awarded it dish of the day.
As well as Dan and Steph’s miso cob of corn that looked delicious they also served it with the children crowd pleaser of sushi.
Sophia and Ashlee looked like they were in trouble dumping the meatballs for their subs on the floor. However they must have quickly made some more. The judges thought they were to difficult to eat due to the size but the flavour of the meatballs were nice.
Kerrie was getting angry with Craig about his plating up. She takes charge when it comes to the cooking and he takes charge in the too camera pieces. Clearly he was loving those ball jokes. This time she made Very Hungry Catepillars which was a great concept, but the lamb balls were burnt and the lettuce and herb balls just sounded weird.
The Vic cousins of Smiley Sam and Chris were smart making Pork and Vegetable Sausage Rolls again the execution let them down with the sausage rolls being under cooked as were the chips they were serving with it.
The Bondi boys were going for a vegetable packed Spag Bolognaise with a smashed pea and broccoli side. The judges thought the flavour was a bit flat. As Pete said they only fulfilled one side of the brief the nutritious side not the delicious one.
Jake and Elle made Chicken Taquitos, but Jake was hilarious when he noticed the kids did not know what it was and started selling it as a rolled up nachos and a Mexican Wrap. Some of theirs were burnt as well but the Pete thought “it was hard to fault” and told them they were a force in the competition. Also I hope we get to see what Jake’s hair looks like with out all the hair product in it, it would be interesting to see how long the swirly thing is on top.
However it was Ali and Samuel who produced over cooked Chicken Skewers with over cooked vegetables who were sent to the elimination challenge. They were unlucky as there were quite a few teams who could have been there in their place.
My Kitchen Rules – on SEVEN Monday to Thursday nights at 7.30pm.
