Celebrity Xmas Come Dine With Me – Simone Callaghan Is An Upper Middle Class Bogan
So Simone Callahan has a top of the range kitchen but she cannot cook. And her palate is the equivalent of a six year old. She says she does not eat cooked vegetables except potato and also thinks you can never have too much cream. How does she stay so thin?
The celebrities of Simone, Steve Price, Myf Warhurst and Anthony Koutsafidis had to cook a Christmas menu for each other.
Simone’s menu was chicken sandwiches for entree, a souvlaki wrap and chocolate ripple dessert she got the recipe off the back of an Arnott’s biscuit packet. Suffice to say the other three were pretty unimpressed.
There was not a lot of chemistry between the four though by the end of the week Myf and Steve Price were starting to have a bit of repartee. Steve Price reveal what a rude person he was. He just whinges he does not have any witty putdowns. Interesting that most of his criticisms occurred when he was alone with the camera.
Also the celebrities were pretty polite about scores even Simone’s footy match meal was given sevens.
However at least she made it all herself unlike Koutas who had his mum over helping cook. I would put that under the cheating category. He/she made gnocchi and for main it was chicken wrapped in prosciutto. Though Simone thought it was bacon. Also the house was not Koutas either which he revealed when he handed over a manky looking pepper packet.
Which means was Simone’s house rented for the show, and Myfs definitely was. It does explain the lack of personal touches to all of them.
Anthony made tiramisu and it was nice and Simone had not had it before. Interesting because I thought KFC had a version of Tiramisu in the ’90’s. For someone that has travelled and stayed in five star hotels her culinary tastes are very unsophisticated. She must have been sharing the baked beans that Shane had sent to India.
Myf made Prawn cocktail but Simone did not eat it as she does not like prawns though she did eat the turkey. Her dining companions were whinging about the time it took her to serve up the main however they were happy with the result. Myf’s downfall was her trifle did not set.
Steve after his moaning about people using packets made his dessert of trifle out of packet jelly (that’s how you get it to set Myf) and a store bought cake. He did do a nice lamb on the rotisserie and his entree was thought to be nice as well.
In the end Steve Price won the $2000 for his charity which is probably less then his appearance fee on the show.
What did you think of the food dished up?
