Recipe To Riches – The Freezer Section
This week on Recipe To Riches there were three woman battling it out to win the freezer section. This episode was not quite as snappy as the first episode as it did not have the guy who ovedosed his chicken with tabasco sauce. The most entertaining bit was when Nobay the advertising guy looks at a hot girl at the auditions and says I would like to work with her. Her food did not get through.
It was chilli con carne versus pork vindaloo versus maple syrup and macadamia nut icecream.
The girl with the Maple Macadamia Ice Cream priced herself of the competition with her high end ingredients which was macadamias and maple syrup. Also using condensed milk was no no as it is not a raw ingredient. The judges did not think it was good enough for the price they would have to charge for it.
She had the easiest prep but she wasted time chopping up the nuts by hand. Darren after watching this go on for over an hour then told her she should have blitzed them.
Darren and the Big Kitchen dude helped Dolly with her prep by peeling garlic and ginger. Dolly was also lucky to get the big cooker, with Sara-Jane having to make do with large pots for her chilli.
The judges liked both of the savoury dishes but thought they were both very spicy. They were both put through to the marketing round.
Nobay loved Sara-Jane’s retro feel and she had some great vision for her packaging. It did look great and in the end it was her Chilli Con Carne that made it to the freezer section of the supermarket. It will be interesting to taste it to see if the chilli has been toned down in the final product.
By the way Connie’s Croquettes were not to my taste, too salty and fatty.
